These Wide-Leg Cropped Jeans Didn't Flatter My Figure At All!

melodiestewart.com, Top Atlanta Blogger, Atlanta personal stylist, Atlanta street fashion

Have you ever scrolled down IG or Facebook or thumbed through a fashion magazine and saw THE cutest outfit? The model or person wearing the outfit looks amazing and it’s at that moment that you know you need that shirt, dress, pair of pants or shoe in your life.

That’s the case with these wide-leg cropped pants. I’d seen a few style influencers on the gram styling and profiling in wide-leg pants looking effortless and chic. So in my mind, I would look just as dope. Guys not so much. These high-waisted cropped jeans did absolutely nothing for my short frame.

For starters, high-waist pants and my mom gut don’t mix. Secondly, the pants are an awkward fit, especially around my butt. Not only did my butt try to eat the pants, it gave it a funny shape (which I can’t have that). Over all the look wasn’t bad, I just can’t get down with these pants anymore. I think the blazer saved this look.

Have you ever bought something that you thought you were going to rock in it, but ended up being a complete disappointment? Tell me about it below.

Vintage Mix Prints + Faux Fur Vest

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta Fashion Stylist, Atlanta Style Blogger

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!! I'm so ready for all the bombtastic opportunities this year will bring.  Last year was full of learning moments that will definitely propel me into to my goals this year and beyond.  I hope that this will be one of the best years of your life from this point forward.

I love blending old and new school fashion from time to time, so today's outfit post is doing just that.  Grandma's floral blouse and pleated floral skirt is not so appealing by itself, so I added the fuzzy fur vest and wine oxfords.  And since the skirt was a wee bit too big I cinched it with a skinny belt.  The key to this looking coming together was that I paired two types of the same print and shared the same color scheme.  What do you think about mixing prints?

Vintage Floral Dress + Pink Blazer

Atlanta Style Blogger, Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Summer to Fall Fashion

*Disclaimer: the wind was being real disrespectful to my hair, so excuse the messy hair...

By now most of us, at least us southerners, are starting to feel this Fall weather sliding in on us.  And although I'm super excited about wearing some of the fall pieces I've acquired over the summer; I'm still trying to hold on to as much of the summer as possible.  One way I'm bringing summer fashion into fall is by adding a blazer to this tubed summer dress (later I'll show you another way I tricked out this vintage dress).  Layering is key! A blazer or a button-down or even a sweater can all be pieces to transition your summer dresses into the fall.  What other way would you have styled this dress?

Happy Thursday people!  It's almost the weekend and I'm ready to grab it by the horns.  Speaking of horns, this is Taurus season (doing a little dance).  Can you guess why I'm so happy?

My birthday is next month - Cinco de Mayo or the 5th of May.  I don't plan on doing much because it's not really a milestone year, plus I'm not that big on shindigs.  May is also my blogs 3rd birthday.  I really can't believe how far I've come to have had no clue about what I was doing in the beginning.  Can't wait to see what's to come.  

Would you guess that I was a tomboy growing up?  All the way up to my first year in college.  When one day while sitting in class, I just decided that I wanted a change; I was going to tap into my feminine side.  But every now an then, I like to revert back to my tomboyish looks.  I just know now how to add some girlpower magic to the style.  What do you think, have you ever thought about menswear inspired fashion?

Burgundy Moto + Army Fatigue

Atlanta style blogger, style blogger, Atlanta blogger, natural girls killing it, street style, Moto Jacket, Fatigue Pants

I feel like we just got into January and now we're almost at the end.  Maybe it's due to the fact that I celebrated Christmas, New Years and my wedding anniversary all within a 20 day span.  A girl could get use to this...

 Now that we're into the new month, I have already hit the ground running.  My husband has already given me the green light regarding my exit plan from my 9 to 5.  Even before the new year hit, I was already busy planning the ways that I can create multiple streams of income.  Although I know what I wanted to do, I really didn't know how to execute it.  But that all changed when I got wind of the live streaming app - Pericsope

(download the app and follow me @thestyleklazit).  

I started following a number of #ladybosses who weren't afraid to share the knowledge that got them to where they are now.  Just wait guys, I've got some good things coming this year that will help you in all your styling needs.

Bodacious In Bordeaux

Happy New Year!  This is the first post of the year!  Noticed anything different?

I've updated the blog.  What do you think?  I've only been blogging for less than 2 years but I'm proud of the progress that I've made and there's more changes to come.  If you haven't subscribed, you can 

here

.

One thing I'm most proud of is that I've really started to like myself.  Although I'm not perfect, I can look at myself in the mirror and built myself up instead of picking out my flaws.  I didn't make any new year resolutions because I had already started making resolutions in 2015.  My goal for 2016 is to really put my best foot forward and stop being afraid of shoulda, woulda, coulda's.  I plan to be very intentional in

EVERYTHING

I do.  Don't believe me just watch!

So a couple of weeks ago I share a post of my

ShoeDazzle

 holiday wishlist (

here

).  One of the items on the list was this "cozy turtleneck tunic

sweater 

.  I liked both the color and the style of this sweater.  Would you try a monochromatic look?

Weekend of Fashion & Fun - The Jumper / pt. 3

Hey Stylenista's!  

Finally part 3 of my fun filled fashion weekend....  Click here for part 1 and part 2.

The conclusion of my weekend ended at a Trunk Show hosted by fellow fashion blogger Nikka Shae of Oh! Nikka.  Style ambassador Perrie Tucker gave us a sneak peak into the newest Lifestyle Brand collection by British Designer India Hicks.  The collection has quick a few pieces that I would have loved to have brought home with me, however, father's day is fast approaching and I have big plans for my boo that requires $$$.  

Anywho, on to the most important piece; my outfit!  Since I had been in heels all day the day before I opted for flats.  How cute are the pink and white oxfords?  Well since I had the shoe selection for the day, the next step was building the look.  After shopping my closet in my mind and one minor suggestion from my husband.... I give you: The Jumper!

Outfit Details
Top, Jumper & handbag - Thrifted
Bowtie - Canary48
Socks - Target
