Welcome back, peeps! I hope you had a wonderful first week of the year and an awesome weekend. Today, I decided to create another casual outfit.  Yes, the colors are similar to my other casual post, but I just love the colors so much I couldn’t quite help myself.  This time instead of Christmas details, I was inspired by this plus size red scalloped blouse that I found on eBay that immediately made me think of the petal of a red rose.  And then I knew that I had a theme for this post,

Next, to pair the red blouse I decided to choose a plus size black wrap jacket that has a slightly sheer lace effect in the center of the jacket. What really drew me to this item was that it is a wrap jacket (which is perfect for plus size women) and the flowers details on the lace part.

Then, I picked a pair of comfy looking plus size blue jean jeggings from Target. I know that jeggings get a bad rap sometimes, but I still love them. It really gives you the appearance of skinny jeans without the hassle of squeezing into them.  And then instead of adding a pair of pumps like the product photo suggests, I decided to choose a pair of these flat suede knee length boots.  These boots look so comfy and perfect if you want to do a lot of walking around.

Next, I picked out this gorgeous black and white color block handbag. The moment I saw it, I instantly knew that I just had to include it in this outfit post.  I especially love the quilted texture and the gold chains on the front of the handbag. Finally, I chose a simple sterling silver necklace to match the steel buckles on the boots.  I usually don’t mix gold and silver accents but again I just couldn’t resist adding this beautiful pendant.

And this is my complete outfit, perfect for running around on the weekend or meeting someone for coffee. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know down in the comments!
