Mustard and Melanin

I have been looking to update my wardrobe and inject it with colour and this mustard yellow skater dress does just that!

I can honestly say I have developed a love for lace! My previous ‘outfit of the day’ post featured floral lace and this one is no different. I was in Forever 21 the other day and the first thing I spotted when I went to the plus size section was this mustard dress and like many of my impulse buys, I just had to have it.IMG_4151 (2)

The sizes in Forever 21+ range from 0x to 3x. Although I am plus-size, I am considered to be on the smaller side so this dress is in a size 0x. The dress is currently available in stores but not online so head on over to your nearest store.

The back has criss-cross straps that are adjustable for a comfortable fit.

The cut out detail is low enough and small enough not to expose too much such as bra straps and what not.

I love showing off my legs but not too much! This length is just right because I need to be comfortable and maintain some type of modesty as I go about my day. All my accessories are tan, I just wanted to keep it low key. The bag is from Primark but a similar one from Forever 21 can be found here. The metallic faux leather sandals are also from Forever 21 and you can get them here.

As always, I can never leave the house without sunglasses and this pair went perfect with the dress. They are from Ruchiru Collections, currently sold out on their site but you can also get a similar pair here.

I had so much fun shooting this and I was absolutely delighted when I saw these flowers that matched my dress! I am so glad the sun is out in Ireland and I am trying to enjoy it while it lasts (because we know how rare the sun can be!).

Peace and Love.
