It's funny how I don't go to school any more but I find ways to appear as though I might. I cant help but be drawn to the whole "Collegiate Chic" thing (or we could just call it layering a sweater on top of a button-front collared shirt), and as much as I love a good "adult appropriate" bag. I do love a good backpack, which believe it or not is hard to find. Trust me they're not all created equal, and finding the right one, that fits who you are and represents you as a person (at least for me) has been next to impossible. Needless to say, finding this one was a God send (additionally) so was finding these amazing moto jeans, because laaaawd knows I've been searching for the perfect pair for what seems like eons. 

As for this cute, hearts as eyes, skull (semi-cropped) sweatshirt....I just die. I came across it during one of those "I'm not gonna buy anything" window shopping trips (**side-eyes myself**). And honestly I wasn't going to buy a damn thing because I truly didn't have the duckets, but at just under $10.....I was willing to potentially miss a meal in the mall's food court. 

To make matters lean more in the favor of "You must get this RIGHT NOW!" (aside from it being in a print I just die for), it was the last one that actually came in an XL...I'll just let that sink in.

plus size bad ass

I got this baby home, threw it on, and did a dance around my kitchen as I contemplated what I was going to pair with it for my next outfit post. I threw open my closet door, dipped it low (while holding the door of course) and hurt myself while doing it (because lord knows how old and dusty I am, and how I swear I can do way more than I actually can...especially these days....due to my spine BS). In any event, while I was struggling to get back up from being dipped low, I made eye contact with my moto jeans and it all became outfit was born.

Before we get into this outfit and how much it rocks my sock, let's touch upon this lippy. Aside from the name of the product that I love (Vindictive, which is a word I find to be supremely relevant for reasons I won't discuss in this post), the color is absolutely fabuloso! 

I may be particular about which "hybrid" types of shades I like to rock on my lips, but rest assured I like my lips to make unexpected statements just as much as anything else I wear.

I love the classics  like reds,  pinks, and plums...but I find certain shades of those more appealing than others. And honestly  the idea of "out of the box colors/tones" like: Grey, Blue, Black, & Emerald (just to name a few) are even better, when done right they can easily become less "out-of-box" and more of a staple. 

This LA Splash Cosmetics Lip Couture Lip Paint in most certainty a staple, this color is the knees of the bees.

(I will be reviewing these lip products soon with all the pros & cons, so stay tuned.)


In light of the warmer weather creeping in ever so slowly I decided to bare a little leg and bring out my tried and true color fav. 

Chartreuse is just one of those colors that will never in a  million years go out of style for me. It's funny because it doesn't exactly compliment skin tones that aren't super tanned (olive)  or dark, but I couldn't really give a damn. I am in love/ lust, head over heels for this color, and have been since forever. It's the ultimate in neutrals even though it is the most evident pop of color, and I am a fan of colors that can do that all at once. 

I paired the top with my faux leather envelope skirt, my life-boots, this most awesome handmade crocheted scarf from my main BISH Amy (BettyBlack.Info), and a pineapple ponytail (which I will be rocking this spring to the point of nauseam).
