Spring to Summer Style with Ashley Stewart

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.
The dose of Vitamin D we have been riding lately signals one thing - time to update my wardrobe with pretty new things for the Summer season. I seriously love all of the trends right now! The florals, brights, atheleisure, fruit prints I just can't get enough of it! So I am very excited to be partnering with PRIMP to share two looks that I have styled from Ashley Stewart.

Let me state that I am not a fashion blogger. This was REALLY stepping out of my comfort zone. I figured hey, most of us aren't fashion bloggers. We don't own professional cameras or frequent exotic locations, we just want to wear cute clothes in our everyday lives. So why not!

Being "in-between" in sizing I often look to plus size brands over the straight sizes because I find they understand curvy bodies better and not to mention can accommodate busty babes. Ashley Stewart is a Plus-size fashion brand for the fun and confident Diva. Offering a wide assortment of fashion items in sizes 12-32 and testing to include sizes 34 & 36. Now that's some size inclusive body positivity!

Ashley Stewart's website is my preferred way to shop because it's on-trend with the latest and hottest fashion styles. New fashion items are added every day including online exclusives. If you prefer a more hands on shopping experience head in to one of their 89 retail stores across the United States.

Living in the Pacific Northwest our fashion choices often revolve around what our temperamental weather is doing at the present moment. This can mean experiencing three different seasons in one day. It can be a rainy 60 degrees one day and soar to a blazing hot 85 the next. Layering is key. I can see why there are very few fashion bloggers here. The weather! When I had planned to do this it was blindingly bright one day and drizzly humid the next, hello frizzy hair!

Bomber Jackets are still going full force in my closet. I am pretty certain that I have close to 10 now! This Varsity Style Mesh Bomber Jacket features an open mesh knit to keep you cool while being warm enough for Summer nights. You might not think a jacket with a bunch of holes in it could possibly keep you warm, but it actually does! With a tight knit this feels like wearing a lightweight airy jacket. The sheerness of the mesh gives a little hint of skin peeking through without feeling overexposed.

Atheleisurewear is a huge trend right now and this jacket is the definition of it. The striped details are totally sport luxe. You can wear this jacket casually with jeans, over a t-shirt dress, or pair it with a sports bra and leggings for a mega cute gym look. The striped cuffs at the wrists feel exactly like those oldschool athletic wristbands, love it!

Roses are my favorite flower so when I saw this tank I knew it would become mine. Pink and beetroot purple roses bloom brightly in this watercolor Floral Tank letting you carry the floral trend of Spring in to Summer. Best of all the print did not become stretched out or see-through over my chest. That's a sure sign of quality and this tank is super comfy too!

While I have hopped on the trend bandwagon this season, I also looked to Ashley Stewart for fashions that fit my personal style year round. My style is a mix of feminine meets rock & roll. If Courtney Love was a style, that's my goal. Celebrity Skin but forever disheveled.

Adding the rock & roll element to this outfit are these edgy glam Mirrored Lace Up Heels.

Having wide feet I struggle with finding heels that fit me. Ashley Stewart carries all wide width shoes. Hallelujah. The lace up style of these are wonderful for those with wide calves too.

The straps are extra long with rubber thread running throughout to keep them from slipping down.

These heels are super versatile in that they can also be worn tied around the ankles. How awesome is that silver mirrored effect on the heel?

Moto details adorn the hips and knees with zips at the ankles on these Moto Zip Ankle Jeans. Available in colors - medium blue and dark blue. If you are a shorty like me you will love these! They hit spot on at the ankle.

Can we take a moment to admire these pretty in HOT pink wedges? They are like WOW.

 The Lexa Cut Out hot pink wedges are a statement making shoe. Slits and cut outs in all the right places make these wide width wedges a knockout. With a 3.5 inch wedge heel you can walk all day in them. Or run! I had to shoot with my self timer on my phone and was running back and forth. Never tripped once!

I have a major affinity for pineapples. If it has a pineapple on it I want it.

Bringing Island vibes in to my everyday style I am wearing the Tropics Tankini as a top tucked in to the Georgette Black Maxi Skort. Throw a t-shirt on over it and you're ready to go from pool side to Farmers Market.

The moment I saw this Sequin Pineapple Jean Jacket I knew it was going in to my cart. You can't go wrong with a classic denim jacket and the details on this say Hello Summer.

I mean what's more tropical and fun in the sun than wearing a giant sequin pineapple?
Light deconstruction is done ever so thoughtfully on this denim jacket. Little slit cut outs even peek through on the elbows, such a sweet little touch!
It is not all party in the back though, a trendy little cactus patch on the shoulder says "Maybe Never". Which is how we often feel about when Summer will arrive in Seattle.

I am obsessed with this skirt/skort combination of the Georgette Sheer Maxi! A sheer black overlay flows over the attached shorts underneath. There are so many outfit possibilities with this piece. Dress it up with an off the shoulder crop top or wear it as a cover up at the pool. Length wise it was a tad too long for me at 5'4, but with high enough heels it's a keeper.

How awesome are these sunglasses? They turn different colors depending on how the light hits them.

Handbag of Summer '17 right here. The gold pineapple accents on the Dome White Shoulder Bag do a fruit print in a refined way. The pineapples are actually individual laser cut outs brought forth over a metallic background. Details!
Even if you are not plus size don't sleep on Ashley Stewart for accessories.
Sunglasses game is on point!

I had such a wonderful time shopping for the season with Ashley Stewart! I was rather nervous as this was my first fashion post and shooting from my phone wasn't ideal, but it was a lot of fun! My journey to body acceptance is a continuous one, but wearing the bold, vibrant, and fun fashions from Ashley Stewart really helped me to feel confident and comfortable in the size I'm currently in.
