Bold Basics

Plus Size Style, Style

Happy Monday Tuesday! Can I get a show of hands – who else had a pretty crappy Monday yesterday? I’d originally intended to share this outfit with y’all yesterday but unfortunately Monday had a way of taking over my life and before I knew it, all my good intentions had been washed away with a series of IT issues at work, and here we are.

So here’s to Tuesday being a million times better than Monday as we get closer to the holiday weekend!

I feel like I pretty much stole this outfit. Literally, this skirt cost me $3. Yes you read that right, three dollars. It turns out shopping the clearance racks at Nordstrom Rack can pay off from time to time! Admittedly, the skirt is a bit large, but who can pass this gorgeous green maxi up when it’s only $3? Certainly not me.

This outfit is entirely built off of basics from my closet. A maxi skirt, a camisole, and denim jacket, all solid colors and potentially “boring” pieces, but throw them together with a bit of bold accessories – a colorful scarf, sparkly arm candy, and a contrasting clutch – and it comes to life! It’s amazing what you can do with pieces in your closet simply by rethinking how you style them!
