Plus Size Outfit – Black and Ruffles

The story of this awesome outfit starts with another blogger – Liz from With Wonder and Whimsy! A few months ago, she did a post that included this adorable top, and I was like MUST HAVE. I asked her where she got it, and she said it was from JC Penney, but it was maybe out of stock. Well the good news is that the one that she had (sweater style, with pearls) was out of stock, but the more t-shirt style one with no pearls was in stock…… and they had it in black!!

It took a while to get here because I am dumb and ordered it around the holidays, but when it finally arrived, I was so happy to find that it was PERFECT. It’s super comfy and the  black ruffle sleeves don’t restrict the arms at all.

I pressed my sister into photographer service, and she did a pretty good job! I should have gotten a better detail shot of the sleeve ruffles, but I’m not that kind of a blogger. I’m terrible at photoshoots; I’m a one and done pic kind of lady!

I’ve worn this black ruffle top a few times now, and I love it more and more every time. It’s perfect t-shirt with a little something special. I’ve been wearing jeans and pants more and more (winter is no time for exposed limbs!) and I love this top just as much with jeans. There will probably a jeans post soon with this top. Different shoes though……

And of course, this top is now on sale and is available in like 4 more colors.

Must…… resist……

I find myself totally disinterested in wearing colors, but I do want to wear bright lipstick. So hopefully it balances out. I actually forgot that I bought this lip color, and considered buying it the last time I was at Ulta, but decided against it. I’m glad I did because I found it in my purse a couple of days later! The Super Cliquey packaging is a little weird, but the formula is great. I think they have one more color I really like, so I’ll probably add one more to my collection. Because, you know, I need more lip colors.

Many thanks to Liz for inspiring me to find this top. It’s definitely a staple piece now! Ruffles have always felt a little to girly for me, but this is the perfect ruffle for me. And let’s be real; anything I know about wearing girly stuff, I’ve learned from Liz!
