today i suit up in spots and a splash of neon for a some summer sizzle.
i’m a sucker for a summer suit, so when i found this printed peplum and the matching shorts, i had to suit up!
see the brightness south of my ankles? these coach pumps are my new go to shoe.
I can’t usually do a pointed toe (my feet are too fat, so they just aren’t comfortable!) but these nala pumps
work for me and i can wear them all day! I fell in love with the color, but will stay for the style, so much so that i am thinking of investing in a few other colors in the near future! oh, and did i mention they’re on sale

waffles && and i are embracing the season in today’s post where we strut our stuff in a plaid pairing
at this time of the year, it’s a shame not to wear a little bit of plaid && flannel! so waffles && i paired our plaids with a bit of polka dot before stepping out on this crisp day.
if you are shaped like me, you may know a shift dress (or shirt) is not your friend. I am curvy with a small waist so a shift dress usually does nothing for me! so to make this look work, i cinched my top at the waist with a bold contrasting belt && slimmed my center with a tailored tux vest.
everyone has a flannel shirt somewhere in their closet (i like mine cause the ruffles make it more courtney-esque) so next time you dust it off try pairing it with polka dot denim, a scarf or even a bag for that fun touch of pattern mixing.
