Casual Romance

Happy Thursday everyone!


Today’s post highlights a look from SexyPlus Boutique in Mississauga Ontario.


For those of you who follow my blog or Instagram, you likely know that I have been collaborating with the owner of SexyPlus, Stefanie Augusteijn on several photo shoots recently.  So you know what that means? If I go to the boutique, I of course have to take a look at what fabulous new pieces she has gotten in.  And for this “avid” shopper that is always trouble lol…


On my last visit I came across some gorgeous pieces from Point Zero Curvy’s fall collection.  This line has really been a great addition to the boutique and I am beyond impressed with the sizing!  And although their bottoms don’t always fit me, I have enjoyed pairing their tops with other pieces in my wardrobe.


After trying some pieces on I decided to go with the Fallberry Crochet Two-Piece Top and the Fringe Pleather Detail Poncho.  I then paired them with just a plain black legging for a casual fall look.


I love details in pieces and this top certainly doesn’t disappoint.  The colour combo of a pink/blush with black is on trend for fall and the chevron stripe is very flattering drawing the eye in.


A elasticized bottom is great for creating an automatic bloused effect.  I also like where it hits me on my hips.  And of course the piece de resistance is the beautiful open back and flutter sleeves.


And to my surprise I only needed the 2x in this shirt!


I am a huge fan of ponchos, wraps, capes etc.  I may live in Canada but I am always hot!  Therefore, I rarely wear a winter jacket and instead I love just to throw on a poncho and go.  This poncho is super soft and cozy and I love the pleather detail that runs throughout it.  It is a one size fit all style and I felt the fit was very generous.


I also took a risk for me in pairing this shirt with leggings.  One of my usual insecurities is my thighs so I will tend to wear tunics and longer tops with leggings.  But I have learned that if I wear a good quality pair of leggings there really is no difference between them and a regular pair of skinny jeans or pants.


To pull this look together I added a pretty necklace in a light pink shade also from SexyPlus and my rose gold flats from Lane Bryant.


This is a casual look with a romantic feel.  I think it is perfect for a stroll with that special someone or a coffee date.


Thanks to Stef for capturing this look with these beautiful photos.
