This outfit may be the only thing that has me wishing for summer. Y’all know just how much I dread summer. The chub rub, the hot temps, and shorts are the biggest pain in the ass—literally and figuratively. I could go on and on about why I strongly dislike summer, in fact, it was today that both of my best friends were saying, “Oh my god, I can’t wait until summer is here!” I rolled my eyes and let out a big sigh. But despite my disdain for the season, I’m plotting summer looks in my head. And this gorgeous blush-colored ensemble is definitely on the list.
This Knot Waiting For You Mini Dress in Mauve
is the sexiest little thing, but I also wanted to give it a practical touch with this walnut-colored Business Casual Coat
. Both of these garments are from Fashion Nova Curve
, which explains why they go so well together although they are at the complete opposite end of the style spectrum. But I’m realizing you could totally take a sexy club or girl’s night out piece and pair it with something like a trench coat for an acceptable outfit to wear anywhere. Aside from the versatility of these two pieces, I really love the off center tie waist on the mini dress. It accentuates my curves, but also covers my tummy, which I can be insecure about at times. And can we talk about this color scheme? I love mauves
and the occasional blush-colored piece
. They feel so feminine and pretty to me, which can be a breath of fresh air to my usual all-black wardrobe.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the Knot Waiting For You Mini Dress in Mauve, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly. The dress is naturally form-fitting and since it is a mini dress, it is very short. If you like a looser dress with a little more length, I would advise sizing up. I am wearing a size 2X in the Business Casual Coat, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly, but the arms are a little tight. I would suggest sizing up one size if you have thicker arms, like me!
