Flirty and Fruity in this Rachel Antonoff Gwynnie Bee Top

The Rachel Antonoff x Gwynnie Bee* exclusive plus size collection was a major hit among all my plus size blogger baes...the amazing Dissected Frog Print Dress (see my last post here!) popped up everywhere, and I've seen this adorable Fruit Print top sported by total babes all over the internet. So, of course...I had to try it too!!!

(Also, have you tried Gwynnie Bee? It's a mail order service for plus size clothes. One monthly fee, and you can curate your virtual closet, and they will send you 3 or more items at a time for you to wear and send back or wear and buy. It's AMAZING! Check it out using my affiliate link here!!!!)

 Rachel Antonoff x Gwynnie Bee Rico Top in Tutti Frutti

Bananas, and mangoes, and cantaloupe, and pineapples, and many other fruits I can't even identify! It's a fruit party! What I love about this top, besides the print (obvi) is that it's off the shoulder -- which is totally on trend -- but is bra strap friendly. I HATE strapless bras...especially if I'm going for a cute casual outfit...so the fact that this Rico Top in Tutti Frutti has ties at the shoulder that can cover up your bra straps is a major win! And, the top is a light, floaty cotton, so it's very cool and perfect for the hot summer weather. I felt adorable, flirty and fruity in this outfit!

I paired this top with one of my favorite skirt finds of the summer from Torrid! Add a belt and some colorful slides, and that's all there is to it! I wore this out on a date night with my boyfriend and it felt fresh and cute and perfect!

Plus Size Chambray Ruffle Dress from Perfectly Priscilla Boutique

Chambray is like the lighter, cooler cousin of denim, and it's the only choice for me when the temperatures sore in the summer. And OMG I found the most adorable Chambray Ruffled Dress at Perfectly Priscilla Boutique, an online boutique that has a great assortment of plus size dresses and tops!

Chambray Ruffle Plus Size Dress from Perfectly Priscilla Boutique

This dress is called Paint the Day Away Dress from Perfectly Priscilla Boutique, and it's currently on clearance for only $20. I'm not kidding...you should snag one before they're gone! I got size 20/22, since I thought the 16/18 would be too snug. I love the lightness of the fabric, the super flirty short length, the adorable ruffles at the hem and sleeves. The ruffles were probably my favorite part! They added drama and a sense of fun to this simple little chambray summer dress.

I have worn this dress about 4 times already since I got it, and people could not stop asking about it! I even wore it to the TCF Style Expo in Atlanta recently and it was perfect for the HOTlanta summer heat!

City Chic Blue Plus Size Maxi Dress

Summer is hitting its stride here in Chicago, and we've had weeks and weeks of super hot temps, which has me trying to wear the lightest and least restrictive clothing I can get my hands on. And that led me to another City Chic dress (see my last post about this cheery yellow sundress here)...this time, I went with a silky smokey blue maxi dress with a racerback knot and slits on the side.

 City Chic Plus Size Knot Back Maxi Dress*

I don't usually gravitate towards maxi dresses, since I prefer dresses that show my legs and have more structure. But the color is what convinced me to try this City Chic maxi dress...it's a gorgeous smokey blue and the material is a light, flowy and silky. And I loved it the moment I put it on! The scoop neck is universally flattering, and the racerback knot detail in the back is a nice addition. I also like the tassel tie belt at the waist and the slits -- which allow for maximum air flow!

Pattern Play: Boohoo Plus Blue Floral Co-Ord

There's something about a blue and white floral print that's so fresh and striking! This Boohoo Plus Blue Floral Co-Ord is made up of 2 pieces -- a boxy crop top and a bodycon pencil skirt. Wearing both together creates a blue floral explosion for the eye!

Sadly, I waited to long to post these pictures and now only the pencil skirt is available (link here)! The pencil skirt would look amazing with a crisp white button down, or even a tank top tucked in and topped off with a belt. There are so many ways to wear a pencil skirt with a bold pattern!

The Rachel Antonoff and Gwynnie Bee Plus Size Collection - SQUEEEE!

Quirky prints? Fun silhouettes? Bold patterns? These are the hallmarks of indie designer Rachel Antonoff and she recently collaborated with Gwynnie Bee* on an exclusive plus size collection that I am IN LOVE WITH. I'm sure you've all heard the news, but I absolutely HAD to get these pieces in my Gwynnie Bee closet once I saw them. The Rachel Antonoff and Gwynnie Bee plus size collection had me at the words "Frog Print Dress."

 Rachel Antonoff for Gwynnie Bee Sam Dress in Frog Print

Yes, I said FROG PRINT! And it's not just any frog print...if you look closer, it's a dissected frog print!  


Talk about a quirky print! I've worn it several times and can't resist when someone tells me they love my dress...I would always say..."Thank you, can you tell it's a frog print?!" And then I would end up having long conversations with complete strangers about how twisted and cool the dress was...which led to a discussion about the designer and to Gwynnie Bee -- which I always describe as Netflix for clothes. If you haven't tried a Gwynnie Bee subscription, you SHOULD! I've been with them since nearly the beginning, and I never get tired of having a virtual closet that I can use to add spice and interest to my existing wardrobe.

This Rachel Antonoff Sam Dress in Frog Print is a simple shift dress, but what makes it unique (besides the eccentric print!) is the seaming detail at the hem and diagonally across the bust. It lays perfectly and gives shape, but doesn't cling -- which is awesome. Another nice feature is the material -- it's somewhere between a scuba and a heavier knit fabric with a nice stretch and just enough structure to conceal some bumps and rolls. It hits above the knee, which is nice for those of us who like shorter hemlines.
