Summer Pants

Wearing: Dorothy Perkins top & Pants, ASOS shoes, FTF necklace 

It's officially August, which means that this year's temperatures are at an all-time high. For those of us living in hot and humid places like NYC, it can be hard to find fashionable, weather-appropriate outfit options.
If shorts aren't exactly part of your office dress code, let the lightweight trouser be your hot-weather go-to. When splashed with a bold print, these breezy pants let you stand out from the crowd while still staying cool. Whether you prefer yours tapered or with a wider leg, the 12 lightweightplus-size pants above are all definitely worth checking out.

July Instagram Rundown

This has been quite a month so far and for those of you who don't follow me yet on instagram (@margieplus) here is a rundown of some of my fave #ootd and #selfie posts. From hanging out with the beautiful @claireculmers from @fashionbombdaily to Kat Graham @katgrahampics and the stunning Clementine @bounjourclem and my super talented boo @yusefhairnyc. Excitingly enough I have started a new project and have been recording music with @supervillainmusic ! ( more on that to come soon). With all that said I will definitely be posting a lot more outfit posts in the coming weeks I promise! 

Since summer is in full effect I have been on the lookout for the perfect bootie that has a low heel for adventures in the city and a cute open toe… Below is what I have found !

ModCloth Anniversary $100 Instagram Giveaway !

I can't believe it has been a year since ModCloth launched their plus size collection ! I had the chance last year to fly down to LA and shoot a video previewing the awesome launch. ModCloth is known for their vintage inspired duds and works perfect with my style. Needless to say the brand is definitely one of my favorites. 

88% of plus size women agree “I would buy more clothing if more trendy options were available in my size".

That statistic alone shows how much us plus fashionistas are craving daring and figure flattering pieces. What is great about the ModCloth plus collection is that the brand really takes into consideration how a garment should fit and feel while following some key trends. 

In celebration of the anniversary, I am giving away a $100 gift card for ModCloth via an Instagram contest….

Entering the Instagram contest for the ModCloth $100 gift card is easy, all you have to do is :

A Pop Of White

Wearing: Vintage top, Fashion to Figure skirt & necklace, Forever 21 shoes (similar

I instantly fell in love with with this Fashion to Figure mesh overlay skirt when I first laid eyes on it. It is super comfortable and easily dressed up or down. I have recently been experementing with  how to style it. The first time I wore the skirt was paired with an all white ensemble for the FFFW all white cruise last week. I loved it so much I already wore it again, but this time paired with a vintage orange pop of color jersey that I picked up at a thrift store when I was back home in Washington state. Have fun with your style and don't be afraid to mix some trends !

Clashing Summer Florals

Wearing: Simply Be jacket & skirt, ASOS top (old), Random shoes (similar), BB necklace (similar

I love a great floral ..especially during the spring and summer seasons. While on the lookout for my next floral print purchases I stumbled across these two amazing pieces from Simply Be. The bold bomber jacket is lightweight and perfect for the hot weather while the stretch from the scuba material of the mini allows for extra comfort. I obviously love mixing clashing prints and this outfit is no exception!

Neon Hat Nights

 Wearing: Forever 21 jacket, Sam Edelman shoes, Forever 21 skirt, American Apparel beanie, Primark shirt

Summer nights in the West Village like I have said before can feel utterly magical. Its that time of year where the humidity has not yet kicked in but temperatures are approaching the 80s. Like most I am obsessed with a light bomber jacket that can easily tied around the waist to accessorize your outfit before the chill of the night sets in. This I got from forever 21 and is a favorite on my blog lately since its super comfortable and instantly makes a somewhat "plain" outfit more interesting.
