Mellow N’ Yellow…

Hi Loves! I just wanted to come post really quickly before the hectic weekend that consists of swimming and thrifting with J and all the studying I have to do, engulfs me! I have been loving the effortless yet chic style of maxi skirts and dresses this year as you can tell from a bunch of my previous posts. So this dress is no different, except for the fact I attempted to conquer a fear of mine in wearing this strapless halter dress. I know you’re thinking to yourself, “well why did you buy it?” lol! Well I wanted to get rid of this huge insecurity I’ve always had with baring my arms when I first bought this nautical maxi dress in Chicago. But that was over three months ago, and I am just now daring to wear it!! I stare at it in my closet all the time, and find a reason to pass it up for something else. Well I’m over it and I figure at this point, they’re my arms, and they’re not going anywhere so you all get to see them in all their glory lol! I paired my new yellow bubble necklace (I know, I know, I’m the first blogger you’ve seen with it on! Just humor me! :P), my vintage clutch, and nude sandals to finish the look! 
PS. I did a slight blow out on my hair to try something new and for a trim so that’s why it’s longer, more wavy, and less curly!
Style Tip: Try and let go of whatever your insecurities may be when it comes to wearing certain clothing items, because chances are, you’re the only one who notices them…And you’ll be missing out on some great options! :o)

    Great outfit Chioma. You always look great no matter what..And your comment about body insecurities resonates with me – I have fat arms so I try to hide them all the time and that limits my options during summer. Would try and be brave this summer. xoxo
