Everyday Bombshell- Lunch Date

topics: plus size fashion, talbots, sealed with a kiss, new shoes

I had lunch yesterday with an old work friend, someone I've not seen in over a year.  You have friends like that, don't you?  Whom you see sporadically but it's always like picking up where you left off once you get together?  That's what this particular lunch was all about.  I met up with Alicia at one of my favorite restaurants - Salut.  Over brie and fries with bernaise sauce, we caught up on one another's lives.

Alicia is working for a very cool boutique here in the Twin Cities- it's called Corset Boutique & Personal Styling Services.  After hearing her tell me all about what they do, I'm excited to partner with them on some fun things in the coming months.  More to come on that!  In the meantime, here's what I wore to lunch.


How many times have you seen this blue Essential Short Skirt, almost always worn as a tube dress?  Sooo many times.  In the time that I've owned it, this piece has become a warm-weather go-to.  So much so that it's time to officially retire it from my wardrobe.  For its last outing, I paired it with a pale blue cardigan from Talbots.  



A chocolate pearl necklace and new leopard print flats round out the look.  Perfect for a casual afternoon of lunching and window shopping.

The Outfit:
Blue Essential Short Skirt- c/o Sealed with a Kiss Designs
Light blue cardi - Talbots
Jewel-buckle belt - Gap Outlet
Chocolate pearl necklace- Arthur's Jewelers
Flats- Tesori (via Nordstrom Rack)

  1. Hi! I love your blog! I love the versatility of a solid color maxi skirt. Great idea especially to transition into fall with the cardigan. =)
