Obsession Alert: Oversized Neon Sweater

Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta Personal Stylist, Neon Sweater, melodiestewart.com

I am so glad I found this sweater before I went on my shopping hiatus. Although I probably would have found some “logical” reason to buy it regardless.  I absolutely adore this lime colored oversized sweater.  The only down side is that I wish I’d gotten the hot pink version of this sweater as well.

This bright over the top sweater has been a fashion fave of mine ever since it arrived in the mail.  Everything about this sweater speaks to me, from the vibrant color to its bulky size (which hides my muffin top wonderfully well).  Off camera I’ve worn this sweater a number of times, however, check out the other two times I’ve worn this sweater for the blog – this monochrome look and this socks and heels look

For today’s look, I went the athleisure route with these Adidas leggings.  Instead of wearing sneakers, I opted for white booties and finished the ensemble with this distressed denim jacket. Btw, you’ll see this sweater on the blog again real soon. And if you don’t mind, tell me in the comments, which look is your fave.

I'm Still A Fan Of The Athleisure Trend And You Should Be Too!

Melodie Stewart Personal Stylist, Athleisure Trend 2018, Top Atlanta blogger

My style is ever evolving.  Like what I didn't like a year ago, all of a sudden I now have two of.  Yet the one style that has followed me from my younger years to now is my fondness for the sporty look.  

Athletic wear seems to be a staple in almost everyone's closet now-a-days.  Think about it, how many women (and men) do you encounter each day wearing a pair of leggings, a sports bra or some form of work out gear?  As I right this post I'm giggling just a little because I'm thinking about what my husband says whenever he sees a women wearing workout clothes.  "I bet half of the people wearing gym clothes aren't even working out, they're only wearing it for fashion".  In my case he's right.  These Adidas joggers have never seen the inside of a gym.

When I say you need to become a fan of Athleisure, you really should.  Dressing up a pair of joggers or opting for sneakers instead of heels (like I did in this look) is not only cute it's comfortable and easy to style.  For this look I traded the usual t-shirt for this red stripped button down and I choose these black and white block heeled sandals in place of sneakers.  I completed the look with my fave clutch and a long tasseled necklace. 

This trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, besides it's super easy to pull off.  Aside from the leggings and sneakers, try adding other sporty elements like a sports bra, a sweat shirt or pants.  Bascially Athleisure is a mix of casual everyday were and gym wear that works well when you're traveling, date night, girl night out or just because you want to.  

What are your thought of this trend?  Have you worn it before?  If not, you should definitely try it.

Style Collaboration with Michael Anthony of @TheBigFashionGuy

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Thebigfashionguy, Plussize fashion, Atlanta style bloggers, black bloggers, TCFStyle Expo

It's Friday and I'm doing my happy dance.  What about you?  Aside from a Thrifted Brunch hosted by Keren of Thrifting Atlanta this Sunday, my weekend should be pret-ty low key.  

A few weeks ago I attended The Curvy Fashionista's TCFStyle Expo (recap here) and one of my favoritest (made up word) male bloggers / IG'ers was going to be in town for the expo.  And of course a collab was required.  Before I go any further, let me introduce to some and present to other --- drum rollllllll --- Michael-Anthony Spearman of The Big Fashion Guy.

Although Michael says he's my fan, it's really the other way around.  I actually started following him first.  Oh! Wait!! Before I forget.  Please! Please! Please! Make sure you're following his equally fabulous boo-thang, Lissa Mathieu of I Am Plus.

Okay, getting back on track.  Since Michael was going to be in Atlanta, we thought it would be fun to get in front of the same camera lens for a couple looks.  Needless to say we only managed to get in this one look.  The style expo had us both running all over the place.    

And just in case you noticed, my look was taken in two different locations.  The reason why is that we used a photographer that wasn't use to taking street style pics; and truthfully, I didn't like how some of out photos came out.  So I just re-did the look when I shot with my photographer Kaylin.

My look comes in just under $40.  The top and the clutch was thrifted and the Adidas pants were a mother's day gift from my son (really my husband).  The shoes are from Aldo's (old) but I got on sale for about $30.  The glasses are from some mall kiosk.  

Michael-Anthony is sporting Levi's (DIY distressed) jeans with a Perry Ellis vest and Henley shirt from Old Navy.  The hat is a Stacy Adams banded fedora.  And it's only fitting that we walk in style together in a pair of Aldo shoes.

Burgundy Moto + Adidas Joggers

The Style Klazit, Melodie Stewart, athleisure street style, Atlanta style blogger, moto jacket, adidas joggers

Earlier this year I was all the way up in the NYC for a ShoeDazzle meetup and stopped by Forever21 for a little retail therapy.  Not long after arriving my homegirl Kisha Rose comes up to me like OMG, look what I found... she holds up this burgundy moto jacket.  You know I went looking for it and to my dismay, they didn't have another one in my size.  I had forgotten all about the jacket when Kisha call's to let me know they had them online.  I go online to order it and they didn't have my size either.  I called customer service and they told me that a store near me had one in my size.  I called that store to ask them to hold my size and they told me they didn't have them.  I was once again bombed, so I did as I always do when I'm sad... SHOP!  I go to the F21 store that supposedly didn't have them and lo and behold up on the wall was the jacket (several of them.)  It actually came with a faux fur collar (worn here.) I went with these Adidas joggers in lue of dress pants.

White Blazer + Adidas Joggers

Heeeyyyyy!!!  Where have I been?  Chile, I've been out here trying to get my life...  I told y'all that some great things were about to pop off and I'm making sure that I'm in position.  So what have you been up to?  There's so much I want to tell you, but in due time; don't want my haters messing things up for me.  Sooo...

Are you familiar with the athleisure trend?  It's basically a mixture of leisurewear with sportswear.  And the cool thing is, it's a super easy look to pull off.  Instead of wearing a hoodie and sneakers, for my look I opt'd for a blazer and heels.  

Here are a few suggestions that will help you pull off this look successfully.  

DO mix and match.  A blazer, which should be a staple in your wardrobe, screams chic and sophistication.  Finishing off your look with a sneaker would completely be a game changer.  Giving your look edge appeal.  See

DO accessorize.  Just because you're wearing athletic gear doesn't mean you have to look like you're headed straight to the gym.  More than likely you aren't anyways, oops lol!  Accessories are like herbs and spices.  They give zest and zing to an outfit.   

DON'T forget to be creative.  Take one of your fave screen T's, pair it with a cute pencil or fitted skirt and complete your look with the cutest pair of pumps you have.
