Tickled Pink

July 22, 2018


Still nervous about wearing bright colors this season? Well, let me help you out. One of the reasons that I love blogging is because I get the opportunity to debunk some common myths and misconceptions about what plus size women can and cannot wear. By showcasing these styles on myself, my hope is that you will see that these “rules” have really no basis and are not to be followed. Of course, we all want our clothes to flatter our bodies but that never means that you have be excluded from trends or styles completely.

There are several things that stuck with me for a very long time that I just did not wear. The first is about wearing white denim and really white in general. I’ve always had this notion that white makes you look bigger especially if you are bottom heavy. I wonder where I got that from? (thanks media) So of course, I never wore white jeans really until I started blogging. And I know that like me, many women stay away from certain things such as bright colors, prints and even whole garments like shorts and dresses because of what they’ve been told will not flatter them. I’m here to tell you, not so!

So here I am with my size 18 bottom in a bright pink fitted pencil skirt in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. All I felt was confident, stylish and comfortable in my own skin. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zones and try something that you would not normally wear. I promise you the fear of it is all in your head and that you will realize that there was no reason to stay away from it in the first place. Live this Summer liberated, colorful and free!

    Effortlessly chic. The clutch pops and brings everything together. My fear was wearing shorts. I over came that this summer. FEAR: false evidence appearing real. Thanks Kristine for always showing us body confidence with class.
