21+ Chic Summer Size 11 & Up Shoes Under $150

So I got an email request from Miss Ebony2U to do this roundup and I thought since summer is basically around the corner that this would be the perfect time.
If you wear specialty sizes you know the conundrum associated with finding chic, trendy & affordable pieces be it in clothing or in shoes. Its something I used to struggle with a lot, however over the years I learned a few Tips and Tricks 

Here are a few Tips that has made shoe shopping a lot easier.
Department stores (online) are your best bet (Nordstrom is a fav)
Shop early dont wait for sales rather buy early and price adjust if possible
Finally skip the store shop online


In case you're curious this spring & summer we are moving away from the stiletto heel the top 3 picks are block heels, lace ups and embellished shoes ( specifically with pom poms & tassels). So far I've picked up these Lace up flats, these Pastel Pumps and a block heeled sandal. Dont forget you can save even more while shopping by signing up for Ebates you can get between 2-15% cash back just for shopping online ( you'll get 6% now at Nordstrom ).

Fashion Nova has PlusSize? Pink Kimono & Rose Quartz Pumps

If you have been following the blog for some time you probably noticed that when temps start to rise my style tends to get a little Boho. I love Kimonos because they just add flair to my basic looks (see Kimono look-book) also they are non matronly way to cover up when your arms arnt your best feature.

So when I saw this gorgeous Kimono on Nordstrom's website I did not hesitate to add to cart. I think my favorite feature on this Kimono is the lace (very delicate) insert  in the back, it's pretty & practical, perfect for cross ventilation so you dont overheat during the summer.

Now I know most of you did not come here to hear about the Kimono. So let's talk about these Fashion Nova high waist skinny's. It has faux pockets in the front, is VERY stretchy like JEGGINGS and my tall girls will be happy to know that at 5'8 I still had to cuff the Jeans.

If you would like to see the in-depth review (if they're worth the hype & what you might not like) on these Jeans as well as the other products that Fashion Nova carries see this VIDEO.

I kept the look simple, keeping the Kimono the star, by pairing it with a Cream Tank (luv this eyelash Lace Version) my Fashion Nova Jeans and rose quartz Pumps from ShoeDazzle

Five Things You Will Love Too Vol. 2

When I first started this blog I did a few 5 Things posts, I always loved the idea, (got it from a fellow Blogger) because in a way its like a diary. The antidote for those moments when you look back at an old photo and wonder what you were thinking. This will be the second installment (see first Here) of hopefully six more in 2016.

My Favorite Outfit
Right now I am into mixing pastels and neon's (blame in on this Nail Polish), as well as mixing tropical colors ( loving my blues, greens together) see what I mean Here. Which is  probably why I love this Look; I am always on the hunt for inspiration and recently its like Ive discovered a whole section of my closet that I didnt know existed. I credit it to three recent purchases this Bag, and this Sold out skirt (Similar) .

Makeup/ Lifestyle Product
Ive decided to start Juicing I figured it would be a great jump start to some lifestyle changes ( more info Here). In the last two years I think Ive gained about 35 pounds. Even though I love my curves, as I get older I know that there might be ramifications if I dont get fat under control. If you have any recommendations for juicers leave them in the comments below I am on the hunt.

A Blog I Am Loving
As I said earlier I am always looking for outfit inspiration and I dont just look in the plus size community. One of the bloggers I follow and love is AwedbyMoni. I really like her aesthetic, although we are different in size and shape. Her thought process/style is similar to mine, she mixes and matches different pieces in her closet like a pro. If your all about maximizing your closet she is a must follow.

Favorite Tv Show
If you know me personally you know I dont play with my TV Shows, at any given time I have  at least two shows I tune into religiously. However since I am forcing my self to pick one I would say my favorite show is Underground its on WGNamerica a channel I never tuned to until recently. So what drew me in? Jouelzys commentary, however Game of Thrones  is back and it Vying for the crown.

Worthy Mentions
Finally I recently posted a GIVEAWAY ( on Instagram) and  myannual Spring LookBook on Youtube, If you havnt checked it out you can Here your support would mean so much. If you havnt Subscribed you can Here its totally FREE, once you do my videos will be on your feed anytime I make them.
