As a plus size women that loves living in casual weekend looks, I’m all about an easy dress with a pair of Nike’s. This past weekend was all about California living from beaches and warm weather to seeing artwork in Malibu at The Getty Villa. It was perfect and this look was cute and comfy for walking through gardens at the museum and having lunch on the terrace over looking the beach.
I’m all for keeping a look casual but adding details to make it pop. Sometimes an easy black dress like this one from Forever21+ can be boring if you don’t add elements to help the dress stand out more. For a dress like this, I personally love keeping the color palette neutral and letting me accessories and shoes do the talking.
Adding the Nike Roshe FlyKnits was a must. The Nike’s are super comfortable and come in a variety of shades. I knew that the Black, White and Gray palette of these would compliment this look. Adding silver accessories and a hat with similar shades as the shoes just about completed the look, but something was missing.
When you’re in California, at a museum and near the beach. Carrying a purse seems like a lot of work unless it’s a cross body, but a small purse wasn’t going to work for me because I knew that I wanted to capture some moments so having my camera was definitely happening. What better way to have everything in one place then a backpack which just so happen to play up the color palette very well. The backpack added to the sporty vibe of the look.
Adding a pair of tennis shoes to a dress is my favorite weekend go-to! What is your weekend uniform that you always reach for?
