Once upon a time, the arrival of Spring and Summer filled me with dread as I would make ready to get out my cardigans, jumpers and baggy jeans. I’ve always hated the heat; not just because of the scorching sun making me feel uber uncomfortable, but because I could never find, or feel comfortable enough to wear fitted clothing or clothing that showed my arms and legs.
Since I’ve started reading more body positive and plus size fashion blogs however, I’ve been feeling more confident in what I wear and now it’s reached a point where I can’t wait for the sun to come out so I can actually feel like a person again and not some gross cretin that lives in a hole somewhere whenever the sun shows its’ face lol!
After years of being a tomboy and living in slogan T-shirts, jeans and flats/trainers, I’ve finally branched out and am trying to develop my own style; at the moment I have a fondness for midi skirts, tea dresses and bright, graphic designs as well as chelsea boots and minimal accessories, a simple feminine, casual look.
I’m so pleased with the amount of items available for plus sized ladies at the moment and so I’ve picked a few items that I would love to be rocking this Summer; items that I feel represent me. 🙂
