There are so many ridiculous "rules" us plus size ladies are told. We can't wear this and we can't wear that, but guess what? We can wear whatever we like! Amongst those farcical "rules" is the caution of wearing white or cream. It's true, they are not forgiving shades and will show everything you've got and more, but there's nothing wrong with that. The only thing that matters is how you feel in the outfit you've got on, and I felt great in this cream and black beaut.

These pictures were taken on a not so glorious day, but the dress is so perfect for spring. Dark colours attract the sun and as someone who hates to feel overheated, having as many lighter shade items as I can get, is a must. I also find that lighter shades work so well on those with a darker complexion and my skin tone seems to magically balance itself out when I'm wearing brighter colours - a win on all fronts.
Lace can be tricky to work with, but I think the double panel at the bottom and on the cuff of the sleeves finish off this dress beautifully and instantly makes it a dress that can be worn for almost any occasion. Because of the weather, I teamed the dress with my favourite bulky ankle boots and my gorgeous mermaid necklace from Tatty Devine. For warmer temperatures I will be swapping my boots for cute flat sandals or kitten heels for a dressier look, and with a cute dark tone lipstick I really will be ready for dinner with friends or a trip to the museum.
Can't wear cream? I beg to differ.
'til next time.
Love and hugs,
