So like everyone else that I know, I went on a date with my hubby to see "Think Like a Man" last night. It was a good movie and I would recommend it! I decided to wear one of my favorite crop tops, with wide leg trousers, and a cute red blazer that I thrifted. You all know that I love crop tops because I tell you all the time, and I wear them a lot. I like to dress pretty conservatively, but there are times when I like to add a little edge to my outfits.
For all my curvy girls, I would recommend wearing cropped type styles with high-waist bottoms if you do not have a completely flat mid-section. I never wear a top like this unless I am wearing a high-waisted bottom. I believe in "keeping it classy" at all times, so I think this look is not too over the top. I hope this tip helps someone who would like to venture into the world of crop tops. If you want to keep in touch with me make sure that we are Facebook friends and follow me on instagram (naturallyfashionable). Thank you so much for reading!

You would be surprised to know that many people are uncomfortable with color blocking and mixing prints. I must admit that I am one of those individuals who is scared of getting it wrong. So why not take baby steps? I decided to pair my bright pink striped shirt with a leopard belt and a turquoise pencil skirt that you have seen here before. I love the notion of mixing prints with accessories because it is an easy way to wear a trend that you may be unsure about. Some people may not consider this a color blocking look, but to me anytime you wear a contrasting color (even if it is subtle) it can be considered color blocking. I am having so much fun with spring trends lately, and I want my style to continue to evolve. I have a lot of new things in store for you guys<3

Jesus, fellowship, family and FOOD is what Easter is all about. I truly enjoyed this Easter holiday in my casual outfit! I hope you all had a great time as well.

|harem pants ~ Dots, blazer ~ Sears, pumps ~ Nine West, sequin tank ~ Lane Bryant|
This weekend I took a stab at wearing the harem pants that I bought last year when this trend was really big. For some reason I never wore them, so I decided it was finally time to pull them out and see what I could do with them. You all know I love an "all black" outfit, so a blazer and a sequin top was the perfect pairing. I am glad that I waited until this trend died down to pull them out because I felt that my look really stood out. I always thought that harem pants make plus size women look bigger (and they probably do), but I love this outfit.
