Happy Valentine’s Day to you Beauties!!

A day late but, better late than never right? So how did you celebrate it? I spent mine in Edinburgh with my son and girlie dinning in a Chinese restaurant. -Finished with my bank account eighty pounds lighter and my belly eighty pounds heavier. Lol! So I just returned from few days holiday in Scotland (Edinburgh to be precise). I’ve been wanting to go on a break but, had no idea where to. Edinburgh has been a place I’ve been wanting to visit as I’ve seen photos of the city and loved how historic it looked. A post about my experience will be up soon but, in short, loved the place.

Another day, another outfit of the day post (#ootd). I don’t know if love at first sight exist but, I sure know that I fell in love with this striped Ruffle Long Sleeve Tee at first sight (cheesy, that’ll make a funny pick-up line. Lol!). Everyone knows that I’ve an unhealthy obsession with stripes.  It’s a classic in my humble opinion.

Rosegal is gradually growing on me as a brand. Aside their things being affordable, they’ve some nice things for plus size women. Every personal purchase and things received from them were of nice quality. With their prices, I can’t really complain. It is what it is! This vibrant striped ruffle tee is of no difference. I love how rich it looks with the red and white stripes. The added ruffle details on the arm surely elevated it to another level. It is a classic piece which can be worn throughout all seasons. Styling-wise, I kept it simply chic as always. There are some items that doesn’t need too much faffing about when styling because they make a statement anyways. -And this tee is one of them. Yes one can be creative when styling but, not too overpowering (unless that is your thing).

What do you think of this tee or outfit?
