Picnic in Style with ASOS


Sunnies: HERE| Dress: c/o HERE,plus size + misses,HERE | Wood bead necklace: TJMAXX
Wood watch: c/o HERE| Straw Bag: Vintage picnic basket| Shoes: Similar HERE

I was so excited when the team at ASOS reached out to me to select a few of my summer favorites from their CURVE line!!! I’ll be the first to admit- initially- I almost lost my mind- THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT OPTIONS! 😍 Finally, I simmered down, contained my excitement, and selected my top picks… 
Next I resumed a session with the waiting game. I boiled over in anticipation for my new ASOS Curve pieces, I felt like I was a child who knew that a special outing was planned for me but I didn’t know on what day it would be-LOL!!!! To put the icing on the cake, the team had me feeling like a total MVP when my selections arrived in-person by human courier versus a traditional courier like USPS, UPS, FedEX, etc.,.
Now let’s dive into my 1st selection: A vibrant print tent dress - simply perfect for an afternoon picnic!
Let's face it, scorching summer days are on the way, ready or not. Staying cool outdoors in what feels like a perpetual sauna can be a challenge to say the least. We want to be comfortable, cool, and cute 😁😁😁 An easy breezy tent dress is just what the doctor ordered! This dress is 100% cotton, flows like a dream, plus packs a killer print! Note: The curve sizing is generous, if you'd like a closer fit by all means size down.
I styled it with an equally standout wooden necklace, natural colored sandals, and a straw bag. My straw bag is actually a vintage picnic basket that I scored as a home décor piece years ago. Having fun with fashion means thinking outside of the box! Rather than spend $100+ on acquiring a new straw purse this size/shape, I opted to make the best of what I already had 😏 I’m ready for a picnic Babes, who's with me?!
Until next time,
XO

    1. Excellent observation!!! Do you know that I didn't even notice the print was solely leaves b/c of the colors?! When I see pinks and oranges I immediately think of flowers!
      Thank you very much!
