When summer comes I want loose, breezy, and preferably natural fibers.  I took a risk with this Michael Stars top as their Large is supposedly an 8/10 and their ‘Samba'  color looked like a brick red.  I was psyched to find this 100% cotton top is not only plenty big for my size 14 busty self but the color is a vibrant orange-red color!  Unlike the off the shoulder top in this post, this neckline is elasticized and can be off the shoulder, off one shoulder, or worn up.  Here I'm wearing it with a pair of girlfriend jeans, but this weekend I also wore the top with a pair of old beat up denim cutoffs.  It's not a top for figure flattery, but in the dog days of summer, comfort and coolness trumps a whittled waist!

Lately, my everyday lipcolor is Revlon's Rich Girl Red, a sheer warm red that is glossy and goes on more like a tinted balm.  I found putting higher pigment bold lipsticks over it helps make the color less intense but they stay on longer than when putting over a balm.  Adding Bobbi Brown's Lady Ruba over it gave me a stronger pop for this look, but it doesn't feel heavy or cakey.

    This is one of my fav outfits on you! I think the loose fit is flattering and the colour is magic on you! Super cute 🙂

    I can see why you make tomato red your signature colour – you look gorgeous in it. The difference between comfy, well chosen, flattering clothes and the stuff you reviewed from Everlane is huge. Goes to show why it’s worth taking time and effort to find the right things.

    You look terrific in this outfit! Happy, healthy and relaxed.
    That blouse is tempting me.

    But I do think this is flattering–maybe not showing off your figure per se, but the color is beautiful and the style is so young & hip that you look tres chic!!
    ps The smile is fab too!

    LOVE this outfit on you! So fun! I’m dying to try one of the off the shoulder tops but I’m a coward.

      Oh you should! It’s a great way to stay cool and look on trend without having a ton of skin on display. I feel very fancy when I wear them. Gotta say having a well-fitting strapless bra makes all the difference!
