Prim and Proper

This post comes to you all the way from Colorado! I'm still on my cross country road trip with my mother and my 89-year-old grandmother. Pretty amazing, right?! We've been delayed quite a bit due to a few unplanned events-- my grandma pulled a muscle so we took her to urgent care just to make sure she was okay, and then a rock hit our windshield and put a HUGE crack in it-- so we'll probably be gone a week longer than expected. Fortunately my grandma is just fine and most of our hotels have internet!

My biggest fan ever, aka my Mom, took these photos for me. I can't get over how great they are! I really need to upgrade my camera because these are putting my usual fare to shame, haha. If only moolah grew on trees. ;)

For this look I went back to my favorite inspiration (which I talked about in this post) Ginnifer Goodwin! I can't get over the button-up look lately. I just think there's something so crisp and nice about short hair and a top buttoned up all the way.

Funky Feathers and Stripes

Hey there, lovelies! Today's outfit is pretty simple, but still funky enough that I like it. Not much to say about this one other than: Stripes! I love them.

Style Icon: Ginnifer Goodwin

I'm so excited to share this post with you guys today. I've had this on my mind for a while now, and I finally put it all together. Let me know what you guys think! If you like seeing posts like this, I might make this a feature on the blog.

I wanted to talk about my favorite source of style inspiration-- my style icon-- Ginnifer Goodwin! I just love her so much. She's so chic and I love her very classic, but still youthful look. Of course one of my favorite aspects of Ginnifer's look is her perfectly enviable pixie. I won't even lie, 95% of the time I take photos of her crop to my hairstylist to immitate on my own hair. My hair is much wavier and coarser, so it's not an exact match. But wow! I would love it if it was. ;)

One fashion staple Ginnifer often rocks is a collared top or dress. Buttoning that top button looks super polished when combined with a sleek pixie. I dig it! Add some effortless sunnies and you're done. In my opinion it helps to use a piece that's patterned or in a punchy color, to add a little more interest to such an otherwise basic silhouette. The key to pulling this look off is subtle but interesting details. I've put together a little shopping inspo to go with this particular style:

I also really, really love how Ginnifer's classic, crisp taste translates to her red carpet looks. For example here, her shimmery gown is pulled together by some bold graphic lines that give it a more solid structure. She also really knows how to play up the elegant proportions of her short hairdo by adding delicate, long earrings. A neutral color palette really helps the structure of the garment make a statement. Paired with a bold eye or eyebrow this looks is mega suave!

Lastly, here are a few looks Ginnifer has worn that I haven't yet recreated. But I'm dying to! As most of you know it's not exactly easy to always find plus size translations of straight size outfits. I did my best to capture these for you, though!

Jealous Pout

I've been seeing this t-shirt pop up on a lot of fatshion blogs lately, but I still had to share my version of styling it. Every fat girl should have this shirt in my opinion, haha! All those naysayers who think you shouldn't get to feel good about yourself because you're fat should just read it and weep. I'm going to do my thing regardless of what anyone has to say about it, and you should too. Eventually negative people have no choice but to move on.

I saw some two-tone lips on Pinterest and I really wanted to try it, so here's my take on that too. I think next time I'll put the darker color on the top lip. I think having the pink on top kind of made it look like I was pouting in all of these. ;) Ah well.
