Yay! My favorite time of the week is here!!! It is Wednesday, so that means that the week is half over, and the weekend will soon be here. AND, it also means that it is time for my Hit or Miss post. I am showing an outfit each Wednesday and asking for your input. Is the outfit a HIT, or is it a MISS? Plus, would you wear the outfit or parts of the outfit?

With all outfits, there will be items that you love and parts that are only okay. Maybe the proportions are off, the colors do not go well with your skin tone, or the style is too trendy or matronly. Today, I’m challenging you by wearing an orange wrap maxi dress and a colorful ruana. It will be fun to see who loves this look, who would wear it, and who says they can’t wear orange, or that the dress would be too figure-hugging.

This color is high on my radar this year. It seems like I’m grabbing it more and more every time I order something. I especially love the style of this maxi dress since the wrap help to camouflage the stomach area, and that is where I hold most of my weight. Plus, the way the dress drapes and ties to one side helps to create curves which I desperately need since I’m built like a ruler. The bad news is, this orange color is completely sold out in every size, but a light blue and gray version is available. I’m ordered the gray version too since I love this one so much and since it is under $40! I’m wearing a size large.

I love the dress worn by itself, but this Aqua Print Ruana from Chicos makes the dress!!! The Ruana makes a statement, and I’ll be styling it again for you tomorrow to show you another look. It is versatile, and I plan on using it as a bathing suit coverup also. Plus, it covers your arms and creates curves by making your eyes guess how wide your body is. I am always looking for ways to create curves! I’m wearing the S/M Ruana.

Here is a look at the Ruana from the back so that you can gauge the length. It will even be perfect for wearing with shorts since your shorts will still show and not make you look like your naked under the Ruana. Lol!

I once saw a vintage coral bib necklace that I didn’t purchase, and it has haunted me ever since. This Faux-Coral Bib Necklace isn’t the same, but it eased the pain of me not buying the vintage necklace. I love all of the different colored beads and the added charms with the beach theme. This necklace is perfect for a beach vacation, or anytime that you want to add color to your outfit. I’m also wearing the matching Chandelier Earrings, and I’ll link to some other items that will match the necklace below.

It was great to see the sun shining, so I added the Ray-Ban Sunglasses that I bought last year. I’m wearing the Dark Rubber Tortoise/Brown Gradient version, but there are a lot of variations you can pick. These sunglasses have a UV Protection Coating coating, and they are a great medium size, 54 millimeters by 39 millimeters.

Finally, I’m wearing a jute-wrapped wedge heel platform sandal in tan. These wedge sandals are great for wearing with anything all spring and summer, but I’ll try to find some other choices for those who don’t want to wear a high heel. These run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9.

OK, I know we’ve talked about Rodan And Fields before…. Well, right now our preferred customer perks otherwise known as PC perks, are FREE to join …what that means is 10% off and free shipping… And gifts, And special offers… So why not take the plunge while it’s FREE?!?! Between all that and the 60-day money-back guarantee…. It’s like there’s no way you can lose! PLUS, I will be sending you a FREE Foaming Sunless Tanner OR a FREE SPF 50 Sunscreen. Since Spring and Summer are almost here, these two items will surely come in handy.
I always recommend starting with a regimen because it’s the most bang for your buck (extra 20%off). But if you’re still not sure, start small. To start the PC Perks you’ll want to place an $80 order, (so you can grab the PC perks for free!) ~ I would start with moisturizer and eye cream, OR a serum and eye cream, or a moisturizer and face wash (something along those lines) and just add to it slowly.

Here is how you order:
