heat wave

In case you haven't heard, I recently moved to Chicago! I love it here, but it's been insanely hot (tomorrow is supposed to be 104)! I'll be the first to admit that looking stylish in unbearable heat is not the easiest thing in the world, but it's doable. To avoid fuss, I usually like to wear a bold dress; that way there's no need to layer and I can wear minimal accessories. Today I wore a bright floral dress from H&M and paired it with flats, a statement necklace, and basic clutch.

Flower Power

I know floral is on trend every Spring, but it seems to be even bigger than usual this year. I'm definitely loving it more than I have in the past, and I've been wanting to get my hands on some floral pants for a while now. They seem to be everywhere in the straight size world, but very few plus brands are carrying them (no surprise there). Luckily I checked Dorothy Perkins--which carries up to size US 18--and they had one pair left in my size! I'm also recently obsessed with lucite heels, but it was hard to find an affordable pair; I came across these from Dillards on sale and they're super comfy!
