Blue and White Stripe Delight

There is an awful lot of tosh us plus size ladies have to put up with, but one of my greatest banes is the list of things we're constantly told we shouldn't wear. I will never understand others need to try and police how we dress our bodies, so I was more than happy to put together an outfit that checks off so many from the "do not wear..." list:

Dress: ASOS (Limited sizes available)
Cardigan: H&M (Grey currently not available online, but should be in store)
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins^
Bag: Gifted
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market

Horizontal stripes? Check

Exposing the belly? Check
Light colours? Check 
Happy and confident? Check!!!!

I love this outfit and it was inspired by Girl with Curves who recently blogged in this dress herself. I fell in love with the colours and the cut-out along the belly, and screams of an outfit for jumping in a rowing boat with a big hat and a glass of something fizzy. Although I didn't have the boat, hat or bubbly, I did have a lovely afternoon with my friend, Hanna. The sun was out and there was a complimentary breeze that assisted in making the dress of dreams look even more dreamy. 

The bag was a gift from Dani and I just had to finish the outfit off with this red bowed wonder. I felt so happy in this outfit and after lunch with Hanna, I headed to central London for dinner with my dear friend, Jags. I always post pictures of my meals on Instagram and I just had to share my dinner, which was absolutely delicious:

A glorious outfit and a day spent with great friends - not a bad day I'd say. :)

'til next time! 

Love and hugs,

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
