Big Red and the Modern MuMu: Short and Tailor #OOTD

I'm a proud Texas girl. So, naturally, I love a good brisket accompanied with the terrible-for-you-but-oh-so-good Texas staple, Big Red (Glass bottle only, please. It just tastes better).

I wasn't always a huge fan of BBQ - the Caribbean gyal in me preferred curry chicken and oxtail over random cuts of cow. BUT, every once in a while I get a hankering. Everyone knows appropriate BBQ road trip attire must be two things: Easy and Breezy. This one fits the bill!

I found this cute, striped, off-the-shoulder dress in the junior's section of Target, and it was perfect for the trip. I called it a "modern mumu" because of its flowy silhoutte, but stylish off-the-shoulder cut and striped pattern. For a limited time, Target has "buy 1 get 1 50% off" select Xhiliration (their Junior's brand) clothing, family swim and women's canvas shoes and flip flops.

You don't need a ton of accessories or to think too far out the box to be stylish. If you are looking to upgrade your style, but you're afraid you can't put together an outfit the way the top stylists do, FEAR NOT! Just grab a few of your favorite things and rock them with confidence. That's stylish enough. 

And if you're a plus-sized beauty like me, don't be afraid to try sizes and brands you normally wouldn't. Partly because of my height and partly because of the cut of the dress, I could get away with a buy from the junior's department. The dress came in other prints, but this one seemed a little more adult while still being fun! 

Tell me what you think of the modern mumu. Would you rock it? And do you love Big Red or do you LOVE Big Red? Where's your favorite place to get BBQ in Texas? Let's talk about it below!
