Bloggers who Brunch

So I rarely fawn over something in my closet, but take a look at this beauty below (some of you may have seen a sneak peek on Instagram)!

Dress- Forever 21 Plus
Cardigan- Lane Bryant (similar, similar)
Belt- Target (similar)
Wedges- Payless (similar, similar)
Bag- Jo Totes Rose
I am seriously in love with this dress, I've already worn it twice this week, and frankly if I could wear it every day, then I'm pretty sure I would. This is one of the few things I bought for spring. I am really trying to not buy anything at all, but last year I sold all of my spring dresses in my Store Envy shop, so my closet was a little bare.

This one was under $25 at Forever 21, not a store I have much luck with usually, so I snapped it up. I paired it with a turquoise cardigan and mustard shoes and belt, but there are so many colors in it- I know I can do a ton of mixing and matching for spring and summer.



I also have my Jo Totes Rose camera bag with me.I needed a bigger bag because Curtis and I attended a local "Bloggers Who Brunch" event hosted by See Jane Write founder Javacia B. The Rose bag keeps my camera safe but leaves tons of room for my wallet, makeup, a bottle of water, a notebook, etc, etc. Nearly twenty of us met to eat, drink, and discuss legal matters for bloggers. It was so fun to connect with other bloggers in my community. And the food was delicious!

What's your favorite spring purchase so far? And don't be surprised if I go buy it too!

Wow that dress is really pretty! Wow! I love the way you styled it!! That is a camera bag? What? OK, I want that! I hate lugging my camera bag around with me,plus my handbag because nothing else fits into it!

Katie, you are killing me! I have been looking at this dress for two weeks and especially after you tweeted it over the weekend. You look so so so pretty in it!! I need it too.

Love it Katie...its the perfect dress and cardi to usher in spring!

So cute! Providing me with lots of inspiration for spring!


My favorite purchase so far is a floral dress from Target. It's got a dark blue background and I absolutely love it. I'm thinking of wearing it on my anniversary date in a few weeks if it's warm enough. Spring weather where I live is so schizo! Summer warm one day, below freezing and snowing the next!

OMG...a legal discussion of blogging?!?! I've been wanting to pull together an article like this for awhile. I love all the colors in this dress. I can't wait to see you mix it up this summer. And now I have the idea to belt my cardigan with my floral dress.

Amazing dress - the exuberant print and colors are so much fun. I'm also jealous that you've belted a cardigan over it ... somehow I can never pull that off!

Stunning!

I haven't bought anything yet! I am eyeing some of the wide striped dresses at eShakti though. This dress is beautiful on you! I love the myriad of colors. It will be so easy to remix!

Great punchy combo - the print on that dress is gorge!

I love that dress! The colours are fabulous. So much possibility. Those shoes are ridiculously cute too. I'm so jealous that it's warm and sunny enough to wear this. My favourite spring purchase so far has probably been my mint skimmer jeans. I got them from Gap and I pretty much want to wear them every day.

You look absolutely RADIANT! Floral prints really suit you. So for my favorite Spring purchase is a white long sleeve blazer that I had altered to fit me perfectly. I cant wait to wear it!

Marissa said...

You look absolutely adorable bliend!! :)

Charlene Ross said...

I am seriously in love with that dress. SWOON! Oh Katie, if only I had your fabulous style. I have not bought anything new this spring. (Actually that's a lie - I got a pair of Isaac Mizrahi $295 dark red pumps at a yard sale - never worn for $25. The best $25 ever spent! But they are not exactly springy.) That dress makes me want to go shopping NOW!

I love this dress! With your pixie cut and girlish dress/ cardigan you're channeling some serious Michelle Williams energy here. She's one of my celebrity style faves, so of course I think you look fantastic! I think last week was the first time I went into a F21 with plus sizes and didn't buy a single thing (except some sunnies). That dress is a great find:)

i saw the dress and passed it right by, but after seeing how fabulous you made it look, i went right back and bought it!! thank you!!!

Katie Frost said...

WOW so superb! I am loving it. Plus size fashion is very adorable! <3 Cute selection!
Cheers!
