denim-and-justfab-button-downTGIF everyone!

Here’s to another week-days-end; and I’m grateful and happy for currently spending much needed fun time with my best friend and the celebrating of her birthday coming tomorrow. Our “us-time” started yesterday without the kids and our husbands. If you follow me on instagram , (I think you should 🙂 ) you can see some of our pampering moments on my insta-stories. What are you guys up to?

Today’s look is a simple, casual and relax “ballade au park” look, for a summer evening. The jacket is lightweight and I already see it on repeat especially in the Fall. 

Off I go to more fun! 🙂 

I love how the sun rays are playing on my legs… 😀

There was a time where you couldn’t have paid me to wear an oversized or baggy dress to go out!

Universal-standard-Geneva-dress

They just weren’t my style and I didn’t think of them as really flattering or polished.

Dress: c/o Universal Standard | Heels: Also seen here: Love these and these | Purse : Similar | Necklace Similar | Sunglasses: Similar | Belt: Similar 

The rare times you would see me in baggy clothes would be when I’m lounging in the comfort of my own home or in my night gowns. 🙂

However, lately I’m surprisedly seeing myself, considering oversized or really loose-fit dresses or tops when I’m shopping.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dressI would like to think it’s because I’m being more open to the idea of playing around different styles and fits, taking some risks and stepping more often out of my comfort zone while remaining true to myself.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

Well, ladies I think those days when I hated really loose-fit dresses are officially over!

Oversized-yellow-dressI haven’t only found the most beautiful and comfortable oversized dress to date, but I found it in yellow… with Universal Standard

Asymmetric-Geneva-yellow-dressAnd If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you probably know that, over the years, yellow has become one my favorite colors, especially in the Summer. (Check out this yellow dress I sported here

Choosing a piece from Universal Standard website was a tough call… In a good way of course!

Universal-standard-Geneva-dress They have clean, define, and minimal styles. If you don’t know, Universal Standard is a modern and elevated essentials clothing brand for women sizes 10-28.

Still undecided and/or uncomfortable with selecting your (plus) size? No worries! They do an amazing job helping with sizing on their website.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

The company prides itself in setting the standard in a way that women do not have to limit their style and choices anymore because of their body size.

Universal-stanfard-plus-size

Inaguarbly, Universal Standard has to be one of the few clothing companies who consistently cater to women sizes 10 to 28.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

For me, it was the perfect timing discovering and trying out this company. I’m at this point in my life where I needed to venture a little more in brands that offers pieces that are not only comfortable and stylish, but pieces that also fit all my curves in the right places. 🙂 

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

Well, thanks to Universal Standard, this experience was possible and It was love at first sight when my package was delivered to me!

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

I first fell in love with the white, neat and minimalist packaging and then I couldn’t resist the delicate and soft feel of the clothes I picked.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

Undeniably high quality garments without compromising size or style.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dressFor someone who usually or always  would stay away from oversized or baggy clothes, I was pleasantly surprised seeing myself falling in love with this dress.

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

The color is just perfect and the material is so soft and comfortable and has just the right amount of stretch to it!

The overall feel to touch is amazing and for the first time ever, I really did fall in love with such a loose-fit dress. 

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

For this occasion, (brunch after church with the family) I styled my new asymmetric yellow crew neck dress with a black belt to cinch my waist for a more define and dressier look.

I opted for these striped sandals to elevate the whole look a notch without taking away the free-spirit vibe that I got from the dress. 

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

I can’t tell you how many times I was complimented and had to jot down where I got the dress, but what I can tell you is that I felt very beautiful, confident and magical in this dress; so much that I had to wear it to a barbecue later on in the same day.

Ever wore a dress and felt so good and fabulous you don’t want to take it off? Yep, that exact feeling! And I bet it’s no surprise to you that I’m already contemplating getting the Geneva dress in all colors!

Oversized-asymmetric-yellow-dress

… And when I do, rest assure that I will share with you guys how I style them; but in the meantime, I want you all to stay tuned, because I have one more piece from Universal Standard that I can’t wait to share with you! 

Geneva-yellow-asymmetric-dress

So, what do you think? is this a yes or a no for you? And if you’d like me to share with you how I styled this same dress in the same day for a casual outing, comment below and I will do just that. As always thank you for visiting me and have a great start to the new week! 

Love and light, 

Edwige

 Would you, beautiful people agree that it has been a minute since our last giveaway here on the blog? Well, today might be your lucky day! I’ve teamed up with the watches genies at JORD to give one of my awesome and faithful readers a $100 gift card to use towards any watch on their website. How awesome is that! Christmas in July, right? But that’s not it! Everyone else who entered this giveaway but did not win will receive a consolation price: a $25 OFF gift code! In my book, that’s still pretty awesome once you see what they have to offer. Take a look at this! … And the packaging? Gorgeous! 

Jord-wood-watch-giveawayI’ll tell you right now that you will have a hard time selecting the watch you want from their site. I’m speaking from experience! JORD makes incredible watches out of various species of wood and create timeless pieces meant for a modern lifestyle, yet using the highest quality crystal, wood, and movements.

Jord-wood-watch-giveaway

To be honest with you, even though I’ve seen and read the raved reviews of the watches by a few other fellow bloggers, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I mean, they’re made out of wood… that’s a first for me! There were a few watches that were unisex, and look cute; not too manly nor too feminine, and I thought I would go that route. I chose Conway Series Kosso and Midnight Blue.The ultimate goal was to be able to give the watch to hubby in case I was not going to keep it for myself. Plus it was around Father’s day; and I know he wouldn’t mind an extra gift. Well, guess what? He loves it! He has a soft spot for luxury watches and prides himself on his collection, but thought this one was an absolute trophy piece! He named it “Uniqueness”! Don’t ask… 🙂

And it was a no brainer that we had to inverse roles here: I needed to be behind the camera and capture him being the hot model of the day. Lol Check him out! 🙂

As I mentioned above, many of JORD watches are unisex. Yes, they are! And Conway Series Kosso Midnight Blues (which I chose) was one of them. The design is very versatile and the color combination goes well with everything. Now, Hubby and I can both wear this watch. If he agrees to share, that is! 🙂 This one was custom-made for him, so slightly bigger, but because sometimes, I love wearing my watches loose-fit, I had no problem sporting it on a casual chic outfit. It truly is a timeless piece! Needless to say I’m confident they will make the perfect gifts! 😉
