IMG_6452How do you like our little yard? It’s mostly brown because we live in the desert but I decided to take pictures here because the landscaping guys just came in to tidy it up and it looks neat!

One thing though, you have to go in and out quickly or you will burn! Summer in the desert is no joke. I have my minimum of SPF 50 for the body and I also try to cover my arms when it gets too hot because I get all freckly!

What I’m wearing:

Top: Green/White striped task with fabric flower detail from KATE SPADE

Outerwear: Dark grey cardigan from LURVE HANDLES

Accessories: Brown faux-leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Barnswallow Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

Lurvehandles – a Singapore-based Plus Sized Store

Today’s post features my beautiful friend Becky whom I’ve known back in Singapore since our IRC days in the late 1990s. Becky now lives in Georgia with her American husband and we’re still in contact via the Internet. Some time ago, LURVEHANDLES  sent me a few items for review (which I did HERE and HERE) but there was one item that just couldn’t work on me, so I mailed them to my lovely friend Becky (of Subscription Box-oholic) and she did justice to it!

When I first saw the dress I wasn’t sure how to work it. It seemed rather drab and unflattering. However, with some advice from the wonderful Esther, I paired the dress with a green cardigan from Kohls and black heels from Me Too. I matched the outfit with some random bangles and necklace I had laying around and my green Ivanka Trump purse was a perfect match. I’ve never been really comfortable with my body and this really made me step out of my comfort zone.

Even though they operate out of Singapore, LURVEHANDLES accepts overseas orders and does international shipping too!
