So I have a bone to pick with all of my plus size homies! You guys didn’t want to share the gems that you could find at Sears?! I mean…
I can’t lie though. When I first walked into the Sears (the one in Brooklyn on Beverley Rd) I was a little discouraged. It was an hour before closing and you know what that means…everyone is rushing to go home to watch their fave reality TV shows, including myself. But I was on a mission to find this Summer’s hottest trends–stripes and floral prints! A classic yet all-American look that any girl can pull off.
Luckily as soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with shoes and clothes. Best idea ever! I stepped over a few fallen pieces and made my way to the “Missy” section. I really think that they should rename this the “50 and over” section. Everything has a big elastic band or long drawstrings around the waist. But I didn’t let that discourage me.
My eyes were immediately drawn to a colorful rack of skirts. Short, long, mini–for the average girly girl you’d be in Heaven.
In case you’re one of the very few people who don’t stalk celebrity style (or perhaps you have not scrolled down your Instagram timeline lately), you might not know that floral prints are a Spring trend that has definitely spilled over to this Summer. I am so here for it. This floral skirt can be intimidating since it’s filled with vibrant colors and enormous flowers. The trick with floral print is letting it be the stand out piece. Pair it with a chambray shirt (and you should have at least three of them) for a clean sophisticated look.
And then there was entire section dedicated to JUST dresses. Formal, semi-formal and my absolutely fave–maxi dresses!
The new to-do with your wardrobe is to pair prints together. I took the easy route and choose a garment that did all the work for me. Don’t judge me! Seriously beauties, if Sears isn’t on your list I urge you to evaluate your priorities.
Q: So tell me what new stuff you’ve purchased…so we can be twinsies! XO.
