Plus Size OOTD | Beach Chic



Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Well, I can't quite believe the response last week's Plus Size OOTD post received! I'm sure every blogger feels this way but I really truly think Sprinkle of Glitter readers are the very best. In case you missed it, you can see it HERE. To date 276 of you have left amazing comments and tens of thousands of you have read it, so, WOW. THANK YOU.

Since I had my camera/husband-man with me this weekend, I thought I would share another OOTD with you. I would love to make this a weekly feature but my most frequent companion is only 2 years old and not too great with a camera yet. We'll see how we go!

Plus Size OOTD | Beach Chic

Plus Size OOTD | Beach Chic

Plus Size OOTD | Beach Chic

Outfit Round-Up

White 50's sunglasses :: River Island
Oversized navy tee :: ASOS Curve
Nude and rose gold jacket :: New Look
Long necklace :: Accessorize
Pink and lime scarf  :: Accessorize 
Supersoft skinny jeans :: Dorothy Perkins
Bow and crystal sandals :: Miss Selfridge

I had worn this outfit all day. That included walking all round Liverpool city centre shops, looking round a kiddie museum, lugging a pushchair up three flights of stairs (yay for broken lifts, not), in 2 restaurants (it was a good day haha) and then for a baby free stroll along the beach when Darcy was with her grandparents. This outfit is DURABLE!

I would have liked to have taken up close shots of the sandals but just now my feet are not 'summer ready' so I have provided you a link (in the outfit round-up) and urge you to check them out. They are dreamy! I think £49.99 is pretty expensive for a pair of sandals but these are just so pretty and so, so, so comfortable that I don't mind at all. I feel like they add a lot to an outfit and make you feel extra glamorous. Perfect for when your outfit needs a little boost.

The scarf and necklace were naughty impulse purchases this weekend from Accessorize but I think they make the outfit really fun and I always feel more confident with a scarf to draw attention away from lumps and bumps I'm not keen on.

The oversized tee is a recent purchase from ASOS. I bought it in a size 20 so that it would be kind of tunic-like on me and when I take the jacket off it gives a one-shoulder top effect which I think looks comfy-slouchy-sexy (good description there). Also, if you are bigger like I am, a top that skims your bum and tum is always going to be a winner.

Overall I am in love with this outfit. Not great in too much heat but perfect for the British summer, where layering is key and perfect for gals on the go, where comfort is key!

Do you have any favourite pieces from this look? Is there anything you would add or change? I'd love to hear your thoughts. 




Toodlepip!

  75. Fabulous outfit! It's so great you like your body the way it is and show it. I know so many people who aren't super skinny and just don't dare to wear anything beautiful in case someone might notice them and judge them. You truly are a role model :)

    Your shoes are not my cup of tea, though ;) I'd like them if the bow wasn't there, but I'm not a bow-person anyways. I wondered do they sometimes tickle while walking?

  95. You dress so well! Love it. Xx

    ReplyDelete
  96. I just had to leave comment to let you know that I absolutely LOVE these posts! You're such an inspiration, with how confident you are. I think too much of the time, with being a teenage girl, we're only exposed to pictures of women that are size 00, and we begin to think that the only way to be pretty is to be just like them, until we read posts like this that teach us no matter what size you are you should be confident. So thank you for always being a breath of fresh air, and teaching us that people come in all shapes and sizes, but nonetheless we're all beautiful in our own way.

    As for my favorite part on the outfit I'm gonna have to say the sandals, which is odd seeing as I'm not usually a sandals fan, but those are just too cute!

    You are looking hawt momma sprinkle! The sandles are gorgeous, I love adding a wee bit of sparkle in to an outfit, just enough but not over doing it. I have been investing in "pieces" to really make an outfit recently!

  102. Your little 'telling off/polite request' from last week's post did make me chuckle! I find that my comments are becoming increasingly more responsive to the text than the pictures - I think there are only so many times I can write 'Love those shoes <3 xxx' no matter how true it is!
    Little detour aside, your shoes really are lovely - adds sparkle and pretty details to any outfit x

Just commented on your other post but I thought I'd leave and equally worthy comment here to say I really love these sorts of posts and I know you are busy but I hope you continue to do posts like these. Being big boned or chubby isn't really accepted in the beauty world so coming on your blog and seeing this really helps me feel like there is a space for us all!

  117. I am loving these outfit of the day blogs. I love having a nosey at what people are wearing and how they style pieces. Unfortunately quite a number of fashion blogs feature people who are small enough to look fabulous in a bin bag, I still read them but I know I will never be able to wear any of the items that they wear. Why do some brands classify a size 14 as large?
    Anyway, I think you are fab and you have certainly inspired me to start doing my own outfit of the day posts!

I would abslutely love you to check it out as you have inspired me <3
