Pops of Pink

This contrast collar blouse is another great piece from my Dia&Co. box. I wore it for a day filled with meetings in Downtown Fresno and the Tower District. For the last few months, I have lived in the same uniform: tee + leggings/jeans, chambray + leggings, or dress + sneakers. Wearing this top was a nice change of pace.

The non-stretch material fit well across my upper body, especially around my stomach and upper arms. The true-to-size blouse is tunic length so I wore it over cropped leggings. It could easily be tucked into a skirt or jeans for a dressy-casual look. I love the bright pink collar, too! It inspired me to pair the top with my pink flats. The two are a match made in fashion heaven.

Dia&Co. Giveaway

Hi loves! I'm so excited to host this Dia&Co. giveaway. It's happening on Instagram, but I wanted to share here in case you miss the post—thanks, new IG algorithm. :| So what's the prize? It's a free Dia box styled just for you!

Dia&Co. is a personal styling service for plus sizes 14 and up. It's seriously one of the most effortless ways to shop. Take a style quiz, receive a box at your door filled with hand-selected pieces from a stylist, buy the items you love and send the rest back.  Easy peasy.

This is the second time I have received a box. Just like the first time, my stylist gets me! She sent this stripe tee for fall that I paired with a denim jacket and red lipstick. The more I play with fashion, the more I realize my style is definitely more classic Americana. I felt so in my element in this outfit. You know that feeling? When you're wearing something that makes you feel so good, so you. There is a confidence and happiness that radiates from within. It's a powerful, exhilarating feeling.

I hope you like this look and enter the giveaway. Head over to my Instagram (@amanda_allison) for all the deets. Good luck! <3

Hello, Hello Kitty!

Can you believe this is my first time wearing something with Hello Kitty? As iconic as she is, I've never been into her as much as my friends. Growing up, I was a fan of Sanrio's Keroppi the frog. I still remember wearing my mini green Keroppi backpack to a Six Flags field trip in grade school. Good times!

Ok, back to Hello Kitty. This tulle skirt is adorable! There are two layers with a Hello Kitty floral print. The underlay is a cozy black knit and the overlay is tulle. Add to that a stretchy waistband for fit and comfort, and you have a cute as a button, whimsical skirt.

As soon as I received the skirt, I knew an off the shoulder top would be the perfect compliment to it. Unfortunately the one I ordered from Modcloth hadn't arrived in time, so I improvised! I tucked a ruffled off shoulder dress, also from Torrid, into the skirt to get a similar look. I'm so glad it worked out! I love the romantic vibes of both pieces put together.

Pieces from the Torrid Hello Kitty limited edition collection are still available. Grab them while you can if you're a big HK fan!
