Come Through Kaela Kay

Blouse: Kaela Kay // Skirt: Kaela Kay // Shoes: ASOS (old, similar here) //

For my plus size babes, Kaela Kay’s got you covered! Her pieces come in the perfect size you! Use links above!

Kaela Kay and I go way back; like babies and pacifiers type of way back! Ok, I may be exaggerating about the babies & pacifiers, but I’ve been a huge fan of this brand for years now.  I first started stalking, I mean following the brand on Instagram and then began heading out to pop-up shops around Toronto where I knew their pieces would be available for purchase. And man-oh-man have I purchased!LOL Not only are the creations beautiful and unique, the owner/designer Catherine Addai is an amazingly talented and charming woman. Now that she has a permanent store in Toronto and I can have access to her pieces almost any day of the week, I’m lucky I have any money at all!LOL 

Producing fully size inclusive collections, Kaela Kay is one of the few brands where I can shop with all my girls and we always find something we love! With the pandemic still looming over us like a dark cloud, it’s understandable that we are not all ready to run out and buy a whole new wardrobe. That said, now is the time to shop smart and really invest in quality pieces that will last and can mix-and –match with what you are already working with in your closet.

That was the name of the game for me with the Aria top and the Amy tulle skirt. This outfit is actually available as a dress. However,thinking strategically, or should I say “pandemically” I opted to go for the separate top and skirt allowing for endless versatility!

There are countless ways to rock these pieces and I just had to show you a few. Switch out the skirt for a pair of jeans and you’ve got a whole different look and vibe.

Switch out the top for something with a bitta bling and you are movin’ and shakin’ with a whole new look!

Sequin Top: New York & Co (old, similar here) // Plus Size Sequin Top //

As the temperature starts to fall, swap out the top for a blazer and you can rock this skirt right through the fall.

And if I had more time to take photos you would have seen me rocking this skirt with a t-shirt and sneakers, or denim jacket and boots the options are limitless!

Now is the perfect time to be strategic with your spending. Making choices that breathe life into your wardrobe without killing thebottom-line. This blouse and skirt combination is killa, and will offer you beautiful outfit options now, and when we are finally able to return to life as usual.

And that’s the long & short of it!
