What I Wore: Celebrating Life

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Back in February, I wore this bright, fun outfit to a memorial for a dear friend who passed away suddenly.  We decided to meet up at our favorite Drunch (Drunken+Brunch) place that our friend loved to celebrate his life and how he touched all of our lives.  Even though we have all been devastated by the loss of such a happy and loving person, we all chose to put smiles on and have a party he would have been honored to attend.

I decided to wear some all-new pieces that I bought recently.  The purple shrug is from SWAK Designs.  The color is such a gorgeous, vibrant purple made of soft jersey fabric.  I bought a 22/24 because I wanted it to be more fitted.  Typically, I have trouble with larger-sized shrugs because they stretch out and look too baggy.  This fabric has not stretched out.  In more recent outfit pictures, I was able to take a photo of the back of the shrug as well.  It has a great little gathered part at the back, which I love.  It adds some fun and a nice silhouette to the back.

This floral tank and the jeans are both from Torrid.  While this tank is no longer online (this style sells FAST), do a search for "Twist Tees" on Torrid.com to see some of the other patterns still available.  I own about five of this style of tank.  I love them!  They have a cute ruffle at the top, adjustable straps, and are just super comfy. Additionally, as a tank with an empire silhouette, I don't feel that it makes me look pregnant, which is always a plus.

I never, ever thought I would own a jegging, but these jeans are the Sophia jeggings from Torrid.  I bought them in a 26, even though a 28 fit comfortably.  These will stretch out on you, so I chose the smaller size.  They are tight. No lie, I had to do some shimmying to get them on. But within a few hours, they were pretty comfy.  I've worn them about 3 times now without washing and they haven't stretched out very much yet.  Ideally, I would like them to stretch a little bit more to be more comfortable. I still feel sassy in them though.

This great necklace is one I picked up from Lane Bryant in January.  I was so excited to find a bright pink one! It is so vibrant and cheery.  I love it!
