This outfit may be the only thing that has me wishing for summer. Y'all know just how much I dread summer. The chub rub, the hot temps, and shorts are the biggest pain in the ass—literally and figuratively. I could go on and on about why I strongly dislike summer, in fact, it was today that both of my best friends were saying, "Oh my god, I can't wait until summer is here!" I rolled my eyes and let out a big sigh. But despite my disdain for the season, I'm plotting summer looks in my head. And this gorgeous blush-colored ensemble is definitely on the list.

This Knot Waiting For You Mini Dress in Mauve is the sexiest little thing, but I also wanted to give it a practical touch with this walnut-colored Business Casual Coat. Both of these garments are from Fashion Nova Curve, which explains why they go so well together although they are at the complete opposite end of the style spectrum. But I'm realizing you could totally take a sexy club or girl's night out piece and pair it with something like a trench coat for an acceptable outfit to wear anywhere. Aside from the versatility of these two pieces, I really love the off center tie waist on the mini dress. It accentuates my curves, but also covers my tummy, which I can be insecure about at times. And can we talk about this color scheme? I love mauves and the occasional blush-colored piece. They feel so feminine and pretty to me, which can be a breath of fresh air to my usual all-black wardrobe.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the Knot Waiting For You Mini Dress in Mauve, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly. The dress is naturally form-fitting and since it is a mini dress, it is very short. If you like a looser dress with a little more length, I would advise sizing up. I am wearing a size 2X in the Business Casual Coat, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly, but the arms are a little tight. I would suggest sizing up one size if you have thicker arms, like me!
