Prints, Stripe & Neon
With warm summer breezes come bright and colourful looks which stir thoughts of jetting off to tropical locales. Join the ladies of Fab Four Fashion as they wax poetic about their colourful warm weather outfits!
This summer season got me super excited for colorful outfits and off the shoulder tops, just like this super cute one with a printed palm tree design. What I love most about this top is that it’s made out of a stretchy material, so when I move my arms around I don’t feel like I’m in a straightjacket!LOL
This outfit wouldn’t be complete without this purple midi skirt that I inherited from my mommy. The skirt and top together are the perfect combination of feminine and flirty, especially when I’m walking around and there is a breath of wind and it catches my top just so (oh yeah baby I be feeling myself:). I’ve been seeing a lot of different styles of off the shoulder tops in stores and online, and I hope this trend is here to stay for this season and the next!
The other important element of this outfit is my latest shoe purchase. I bought my first pair of Chinese Laundry sandals and so far I’m pretty impressed. They are quite colorful. I love the thin braided pink strap that goes across my foot, and the back of the sandal and heel are made out of several colors. In order to keep my feet from sliding forward, I wore one of my trusty insoles and I’m good money.

In order to keep my feet from sliding forward I placed an insole and I’m good money.
This outfit is perfect for a hot summer date or a nice roof top day party with my girls, either way I’m ready to slay. I finished off my look with my favorite silver necklace and bangle. Summer 2016 get ready because here I come.
This season, the name of the game is to stay and look cool. I managed to do that with the cutest top. I actually was exiting the store when I saw it out of the corner of my eye and just snatched it up. Didn’t even try it on. I grabbed it and ran (to the cash, not out of the store.. lol).
I have come to the realization that I have a short torso – yes, my height consists of 90% legs LOL. With that realization, I have come to enjoy tops that I would have previously assumed would be too short for me. This is one of them. I love the eye catching print and the fit is spot on.
The top has adjustable straps to ensure the best fit. It has a cool exposed zipper and despite the fact that it is very fitted at the body, there is enough room at the bust such that my boobs weren’t squashed. It has a sweet sweetheart neckline and is peplum. I wanted to further accentuate my waist so I added a gold belt.
Wanting my top to play center stage, I kept the rest of my fit simple with this fitted midi pencil skirt and some strappy heels.
It would not be summer without a little glamour, so I decided to put a little funkiness into my summer wardrobe. The focus of this outfit, if you haven’t figured it out, is the vest!
This vest absolutely took my breath away when I first laid eyes on it. The colour, style and cool “architecture” of this vest is the type of thing I always look for in my clothing.
It’s that perfect piece for me, as it makes me look more curvy (i.e. fills me out a little:-) and it speaks to that edginess I like to incorporate into my looks.
I wanted the vest to be the focus of my look, but the close runner up are these gorgeous shoes I scooped up at Nine West. I don’t go into this store often enough, but these shoes have convinced me to put Nine West on my regular scouting rotation!LOL Print, colour, and a high heel? Oh, I was in love!
To complete my look, I jumped into this bright white, split front skirt, and threw on my bedazzling jewelry and I was good to go.
Summer time here I come!

With the warm weather comes the chance to wear colour making you feel as though you’re on vacation every day. This gorgeous flutter sleeve bodysuit does just that. In this look, I feel as though I’m exploring the streets of some exotic locale.
As I mentioned earlier, this bodysuit has flutter sleeves so warm summer breezes rustle them and I just love that. The bodysuit is made of viscose and elastance so it has a soft jersey feel against the skin.
I paired the bodysuit with this equally gorgeous horizontal stripe skirt from Eloquii. I’ve sung the praises of Eloquii many times and I will continue to do so. They just design beautiful contemporary plus size clothing and even better, they always have a great sale coming up so you can scoop up that certain item you’ve been eyeing at a discount! This skirt is made of a polyester – spandex mix so it hugs my curves beautifully!
To complete my look I added my trusty nude pumps and a leather gold tipped necklace.
Tah Tah for now,
