Tuesday Plus Size OOTD

I love being comfortable but stylish! These cropped jeans from Maurices in a size 18 are cute and comfortable! My sweatshirt from Aerie is SO soft! I love the camouflage print! It’s a size L. Earrings are from AE.

Be Pretty, Plus and Proud and have fun with fashion no matter what size you are!

BODY POSITIVE QUOTES

Smile! It’s the beginning of a fabulous new day and you are BEAUTIFUL!

I’ve been looking at Pinterest for some time now and have been saving up some inspiring body positive quotes. Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorites just to remind all you plus size beauties how truly remarkable and special you are, right now, in this moment, without changing a thing!

Read and enjoy and as always, now and forever, Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!

  • Looking into a mirror is not a reminder to bash your wonderful body!
  • Your body is not wrong, society is!
  • Confidence will make you happier than any diet ever will (so embrace your body!)
  • I do not need anyone else’s permission to feel glorious!
  • Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you’ve already got!
  • Life is way to short to spend another day at war with yourself!
  • Confidence is Beautiful, no matter your size, no matter your weight. Be confident in who you are and you’ll be BEAUTIFUL!

Do you have any favorite body positive quotes you’d like to share? Did you add to your list of body positive affirmations we started in yesterday’s post? 

I Am!

Far too often we as plus size women describe ourselves so negatively!

Today my beauties that’s going to change! 

I suggest you type out or copy the text below and every day look at it and pick a word to describe yourself for that day. Add other positive words of your choosing to help your list of positivity grow! Tape your lists to bathroom mirrors, bedroom mirrors, the fridge, any place you look at often so you are always reminded of the wonderful things you are!

So which one are you today?

I AM:

Extraordinary, Strong, Wise, Confident, Valuable, Talented, Blessed, Accepted, Fearless, At Peace, Healthy, Young, Determined, Smart, Beautiful, Graceful, Am Leader, Successful, Head and Not Tail, Healer, Respectful, Light, Loved, Humble, Victorious, Optimist, Patient, Kind Loving…..

What would you add to the list? (Remember only positive thoughts!)

P.S. My sweater choice from Forever 21 was the pink one. Did you guess right?

Fasion Show – Forever 21

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

As I hinted on Friday, today’s post is a mini fashion show in the change room at Forever 21! Fashion, love it!

I drove to Forever 21 to check out what was new in their plus size section. I like Forever 21 because their prices are affordable, their plus size section is fairly large so there are a lot of options, and their styles are on trend for all you fashionistas out there. I went out looking for tops and jeans. Unfortunately, the jeans I saw online were not available in store. While that was disappointing, I did find several tops to try on. I wanted to buy them all but alas I didn’t win the lottery so I had to choose.

Personally I like a lot of different styles, which you can tell by the photos. (I apologize for the poor photo quality… I need more practice and possibly a new phone with a better camera). I like feminine, flirty, trendy and edgy. If I put something on and immediately feel comfortable, confident and beautiful, I know I’ve found a winner. My daughter says I’m too old to wear some of the stuff I like but I say fashion has no age limit just like style has no size boundaries. Wear what you like and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

What’s your style? Don’t know yet or still figuring it out? No problem! Get to your favorite store and start trying on different things. You might end up liking something you never would have expected. Buy it and Be Pretty, Plus and Proud in that stunning new outfit!
