Are You REaDy For This Summer Look? 💋

Today's blog will be showcasing my #OOTD and its also apart of #JBLStylishSummer series. #JBLStylishSummer is something I created to showcase my summer looks and give some tips. So, today I wanted to wear a color that really goes with this Alabama heat and that's RED. Red is one of those colors that really bring outs the sexiness for me and I love it! I don't own alot of it, but I'm about to start investing more in red pieces. I love the way it really pops on my melanin. So let's get into this look!


Top💋


The top I'm wearing is from Boohoo Curve. Boohoo is one of my favorite online stores and it's based in London, England. I started wearing Boohoo's clothing about 4 years ago and I can say I really love their clothes. They have great quality clothing. I still have pieces from when I first started shopping there. For reference, this top is called the Plus Bardot Cinced Volume Sleeve Shirt and I only paid $15 dollars. Boohoo is known for their great sales, so I take advantage whenever I can. This top is a size US 18 and that's normally the size I wear. The reason I love this top so much is because it's off the shoulder and I love that it's a button-up shirt with a flare hem. It snatches the waist and gives me a shape. You can't get any better than that.


Jeans💋


As for the jeans, I love a good skinny jean yall. Skinny jeans really balanced out this look and gave it an edge especially since their distressed. My jeans are from the Target brand, Universal Thread, and I can say I really love these jeans. If I had to guess, I have about 20 pair currently. This is like the best jean to wear for us plus ladies and they range from a 0 to 26W so the name speaks for itself. I've had this particular pair for a couple of years now and they feel the same as when I first bought them. They haven't lost their stretch at all and the fit is still there. As for the cost they normally range from $25-$30, but I always purchase them around Christmas time when they are around $20. I highly recommend this brand! Feel free to take a look at my recent blog posts and also IG because I regularly wear them.


Shoes💋


Here's one of my favorites things: shoes! Yall, I really love shopping for shoes and these chunky heels from Target are my fave shoes. They are from the brand, A New Day and guess what? They are wide-width! If you don't know, Target has an extensive wide-width shoe collection from various brands and I can vouch for them. It used to be so hard to find shoes to fit my wide feet and at first I felt discouraged. I would try shoes from reputable plus size brands and they would not fit me properly. Plus Target's shoes are very inexpensive. These shoes only cost $24.99 and come in various colors. I have all of them too lol. The heel is 2.5 inches so it's very comfortable for me to wear for a long period of time. Another note, they also come in regular sizes and a higher heel if your prefer that.


Accessories💋


As for my accessories, I kept it simple as usual. My hexagon earrings are from SHEIN. I can say they have cute and affordable jewelry. Some of my pieces have broken, but you get what you pay for I'd say. Other than that, I will still purchase from them. My bangles are from It's Fashion and I love them because they are big wrist friendly. It's Fashion sells XL bracelets in different styles. So if you have the same issue I do, check them out. My sunglasses are also from It's Fashion. Lastly is my leopard clutch. I could not complete my outfit without a print included. Leopard is my all time favorite print and it adds a fierceness I would say. I've had it for so long so I can't remember where I purchased it from.


Well yall! That's my latest Saturday #OOTD look. Stay tuned for upcoming looks. Also feel free to follow me at just_being_lakedra on Instagram and Facebook. I post there constantly. Plus, let me know any topics you would like for me discuss next. Love yall and God Bless!
