Inspired by Budgetnista : Straight to Plus

surfing the net last night .. as I do.. and reading some of my daily fashion reads.. and thinking.. "what am I going to wear to work tomorrow" .. i noticed that Kimberly used Fashion du jour as one of the September Inspiration Calendar looks.. well then I read some of Fashion du jour's posts (She ROCKS!!! .. I looove her style.. I will definitely be doing a few "inspired by" looks of hers too)... and then I found Budgetnista. Her style is so chic and effortless. AND THE SHOOEEESSS.. hoooooneeeeyyy!! whew! she is not playing on her "shoe game"! its serious! See, this is why I love the fashion blogs. There are so many great ideas out there. [ha haaaa.. that was a seriously long ramble.. oh well, njoy!]
This look is "inspired by (copycat)" from Budgetnista (here). I thought her look was so comfy and cute. I had to copy. I have been wondering when or how I was going to wear this shirt. I actually took it to Cancun (dont forget to enter the giveaway).. but I never wore it. (That sounds like the story of my life, "i never even got the chance to wear it") , sad.. what does that say about me.. I buy to much junk OR I pack to much stuff.. maybe both,lol.
I know that several "plus" bloggers will translate a "straight size outfit" into a "plus size outfit" and i am always inspired to see how I can get some of the looks that you see in the magazines.. Well, here is my translation for the day. What do ya think? Is it close?
top -JCPenny
jeans - Ashley Stewart
shoes - Avenue
bracelets - Cancun.... I bought my own, but these are some of the same ones from my giveaway
crown necklace - gift from Hubby
and I totally forgot my earrings today.. aaarrrggg!
what are your plans for the holiday weekend? going any place special or interesting?

I think you nailed it. The concept and idea is the same, but you made it work for you, which is what fashion is all about, no matter what your body type. *applause* :)
