Hello Old Friend

Do you see me over here enjoying this lovely California weather? I'm wearing sandals and all!! Today's look is totally California boho and I'm super comfortable in my maxi skirt.  I partnered with Alloy on this post.  I've known about and shopped Alloy for years.  I remember being young (like 24) and plus size and it was one of the very few sites that offered extended sizing to their plus size customers in trendier items. Back then there were only a handful of places that you could buy plus size clothing.  Being a new college graduate, at the time, their pricing was friendly to my budget. Matter of fact, both the top and bottom together total under $50.  Also, being on the larger side of plus in my pants sizes (even then), Alloy goes up to a size 25 (jr's sizes) in their bottoms.  Make sure to check the size chart so you can gage the sizing.  

Can I say that I'm in love with this leopard top. Obviously, I adore the print.  I feel like my wardrobe has been lacking leopard and my absolute favorite print to wear. I've been neglecting my old friend.  I have to do better.   I, also, love the collar.  The collar is perfect for slipping a really cute necklace underneath and can almost serve as a way to add a surprise accessory to your outfit.   

Style Note:  I got my shirt and skirt in Alloy's XXXL.  Since it's juniors plus size I usually just always get the largest size and, for the most part, it works.    The arm room is pretty good on the top as well.  Also not that the top is slightly sheer.  Also, I usually get asked about my shape wear and under this skirt I'm wearing capri shape wear.  It's one of my favorites because it goes back the knee.  You can find a similar one here
