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.
