Plus Size Summer Lookbook


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

As a lot of you will have come over from my video to find out where all the clothes are from, I shall start with that. If you have time to read on though, I have talked a bit about body confidence and what I wanted the message of the video to be. 

For now though, enjoy my snazzy screenshot collages!! If things are still in stock, I will link them for you. Excuse non HD-ness, they are video snaps.

ALL ABOVE ITEMS WERE BOUGHT WITH MY OWN MONEY.

It may come as no surprise to a lot of you that I am a fat woman. Let's call a spade a spade. I am plus size, curvy, chubby, cuddly, volumptuous, fat. I use none of these terms in a degrogatory fashion and take non of them as an insult. I am what I am.

I'm not going to shout from the rooftops, 'I'm proud to be chunky!', but nor am I going to hide away and feel ashamed of myself or dirty in some fashion. Reasons people are overweight and what should be done about it are not for this post, nor is any debate as to whether I'm promoting obesity (I've had that one before- I'm not. I want you to be healthy and happy). This post and video is to say- If you are larger, for whatever reason, you can wear nice clothes. If you are unhappy with a part of your body, take comfort in the knowledge that a LOT of other people are too and it's not as big a deal as it feels in your head.

I would consider myself a glamourous person (and modest too haha), but I am fully aware of my flaws. I have a funny blue-ish lump on my inner calf of my left leg from where I was abused as a child, I have cellulite on my thighs from where I have eaten more calories than I burn, I have a wobbly tummy from where I grew an entire human being, I have tiny red dots on my upper arms (I think this may be an allergy thing), I have naturally rosey cheeks that often show through foundation. Saying all that though, I have a cinched in waist, great (in my opinion) boobies, fun hair, both my legs, both my arms and am able to do and dress as I please- a luxury many women are not afforded. 

Let's set aside our body hangups for 5 minutes (literally in your head, put them in a bag and pop that bag outside) and think about what we do like. Now remember it. You're alright. It's only flesh and bones, it's not the end of your life. You are a beautiful woman. 

What do you love to wear? Has this video/blog post been of any use to you? Tell me in the comments if you would like to see more of this kind of thing.

  8. Wonderful post. Made me smile :) I'm a similar shape to you and so what if I've got wobbly thighs and won't go anywhere without something covering my wobbly upper arms, I have a tiny waist and great boobs so accentuate them! Love all your clothes, you look amazing in them all x

  9. The peachy cream Ted Baker dress is gorgeous! It isdefinitely my favorite look. All of the looks are so simple and fancy at the same time. I think your style is.. clever, for lack of a better word. I love that you find things that you love on yourself and embrace it without trying to please everyone else. Clever and admirable. :)

  21. I am an emotional wreck here! You are such an inspiration, Louise. Seeing how you embrace everything that you are is just such an inspirational thing to do. I watched the video with a huge grin plastered on my face because you looked beautiful and it just radiated from every part of you. It wasn't the clothes, (although admittedly these pieces are B-E-A-U-tiful!) it was your personality and your confidence all rolled into one. I look forward to your Autumn look book!! Much love xxx

  22. First time posting! I for one love these kinds of videos! I went through some crappy parts of life and gained 100lbs (not joking) and have been hiding this new body under baggy shirts and cringing at sizes of pants in dressing rooms. Now as I'm struggling slowly to work off what was so easy to pack on, your videos give me a new confidence as to feeling good in my body as it is now. And that I can still feel sexy and cute and feel good in clothes that suit my body. I absolutely love your videos and even though you've never met me, I consider you a good friend!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Louise you are an inspiration to young girls like me who have confidence issues. You and baby Darcy make me smile every time I watch your videos

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love you Louise! You're so great.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Louise, you are such an inspiration! I've not worn a skirt since I was maybe 11 or 12, and today at the age of (almost) 21 I wore a skirt for the first time since!

    I've been a size 18-20 fairly recently and started losing weight in March. Right now I'm a 16 in bottoms and 14 on top, and my slight slimming down along with your inspiration has really helped me to become so much more confident, so thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  26. you are so beautiful louise & i love how happy you always seem & this happiness is just so contagious :) You are FABULOUS <3

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ah this post was so amazing! Louise you are so amazing! I absolutely love your style, always enjoy watching your videos and reading your posts. I've battled with weight issues and eating for a large part of my life and just recently have I started to adapt to a very similar thought process. I just think you put it so wonderfully.

  29. I love all the outfits you have paired together and I especially love the green pendant in the 3rd pic, it is may favourite sea green colour and I would have bought it if it wasn't sold out. i do really think the ted baker dress in the last pic suits and compliments you very well!

  30. Thank you for writing about body image in such a fresh way. It is possible to just focus on enjoying the clothes and loving yourself while also accepting all of yourself. I am a plus sized girl myself and my body image and lack of self esteem has taken away all enjoyment of "fashion" or even pretty clothes and how to feel good in them. Posts like these are so important because I'm not seeing enough of positive messages embracing all body types or even enough plus sized women in the blogosphere. Everytime I look at these lookbooks on youtubes or these posts it makes me feel better and hopeful. Thank you so much for that :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I always love the things that you wear, you know how to dress for yourself and always look stunning! xxx

  35. You look amazing Louise and I think every woman should feel great regardless of their size or figure! You're an absolute inspiration to all females out there that you shouldn't be ashamed about what you look like :-) I've struggles with eating disorders for ages now and, even though I will never change my mind about how 'fat' I am, your words and confidence do make me feel better! xx

  36. Every time I feel like crap I turn to your blog and YouTube page because it honestly makes me feel a thousand times better. You have helped me through many a dark day and I cannot thank you enough for that. Louise, you are fantastic mum and an even better person.

  44. I am weeping buckets right now Louise. You are so inspiring to me. People around me don't always make me feel comfortable with the way I am but I always turn to you and your videos and you make me feel happy again. From watching your videos I know you've had such a tough life and yet you still manage to have such a positive outlook on life. I find you utterly astounding! Reading what you wrote in your description box on your video about Zoe also made me cry. You're both so lucky to have each other, you have such a perfect friendship, which I am so happy you have. You deserve all kinds of happiness plus millions more. I love you so much Louise xxxx

  50. I've always had people make little comments about my weight, and it is so refreshing the way you talk about your weight Louise and how you don't let it bother you, you completely own it and look beautiful doing so! I'm going to take a leap out of your book or blog should i say, and own my weight as long as I am happy that is all that matters! xx

  53. I love your attitude towards body image. None of this "thigh gap" nonsense, I wish the girls who aim for such things would take a moment to read this and change their attitude. I also love both of your dresses and they look really flattering on you. I love the floral skirt too, the length looks great on you, Louise!

  59. Louise, you are beautiful. You have amazing style & have inspired me to not care what people think. I usually hide in my clothes as I am a curvier woman & I got bullied quite a lot about my size in school but you only live once & I want to feel beautiful while wearing fun summer dresses or chuck on a skirt & not have to put on a pair of tights to cover up. This is such an amazing post & I absolutely adore the denim skirt (:

  68. First off, I think you look amazing and I am so happy to see a curvy woman who is confident in herself. You do an amazing job at pairing clothes together (I am piss poor at this, lol). Secondly, I noticed that you wear a lot of skirts and I was wondering if you ever have issues with chafing? If so how do you deal with them? I am a plus sized girl and I love wearing skirts but I always have chafing issues :(

    ReplyDelete
  69. Louise seeing you smile makes me smile :D Love you girl for bringing happiness to o life ♥ Kisses honey!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I just LOVE how as a bigger woman you wear skirts and dresses! No woman should ever hide only behind pants because they either don't like their legs or don't feel confident wearing skirts because of their weight. It makes you look so feminine and gorgeous! I've been trying to get my mom into more colors, prints and even some skirts and dresses and she's still a bit iffy about it. But I won't give up! You Louise are a true inspiration, women really CAN wear whatever their heart pleases and should never get caged into a certain type of clothing. You are amazing, Louise!

  72. I love all these looks and I think you have such a great attitude towards your body. Its so healthy and really such a great role model for any younger girls out there watching or reading. Anyone and everyone has body hang-ups but its about being confident and loving yourself for your good parts and for who you are on the inside not the out. After all, I'd rather have fantastic friends and be truly happy than lonely, dull and miserable with a bangin' bod. Life's too short to be hung up on the way you look, we should be having fun!

Keep on going, you're so inspirational (easy cheesy). xxxx

  105. Hooray, Louise! Such great style, and such a great post! Adore the pink skirt, the floral skirt, and the floral dress! I'm afraid you've made the floral skirt go out of stock, and I'm keeping my eye on the floral dress should it drop in price...though I'm worried you'll make that sell out too! :)

  112. You're beautiful Louise :) And I love the body confidence you have, and how you see things. I know people will agree with me when I say this, but it rubs off on some of us and makes us think a little more like you do ♥

  116. You are so beautiful Louise, looks and personality! I think it's a shame that so many plus sized women that could look so pretty literally degrade themselves by not caring about themselves and dressing in the most unfavourable clothes. They really should look up to you!

  122. Louise you look stunning in all those outfits! I wish I had the confidence (and money!) to wear skirts and dresses more often. I am very pale though so I get scared to show off my skin. But reading posts like these and so many others, I am slowly learning to embrace it and i realise its rare and some people consider it beautiful. Thank you Louise for helping so many people build up their own confidence and you are right, we are all beautiful :) you are an inspiration to us all!

  123. For a while now I've felt really bad about my body and your video/post really helped. I feel much more comfortable about my body now and i can't wait to go find some cute summer outfits myself :) Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Love the outfits in the video, so perfect for summer. This post is brilliant, I love your attitude to body image. A few years ago I put on a lot of weight thanks to a thyroid issue, having been a dancer as a kid this sudden change in body shape took a lot out of me, not helped by some people in my life constantly commenting. Your videos and posts over the last few years really helped me realise that I could buy new clothes and be happy with my new body. I have lost some of the weight now but more importantly I discovered the things I love about my body, and they're the bits I focus on when choosing my outfits. Thanks Louise, you're an inspiration!

  125. I used to have these red bumps on my hands too, it's not an allergly, it's a thing that comes inside, umh i can't put it in english but it's not allergy. For me very well helped that you , when you shower then you rub this spot on your hands with a hard sponge or something and then later you put on baby oil or lotion, hope it was helpful <3 xx

  145. Adore your fashion sense Louise and your thoughts on body confidence were lovely to read :) I've always thought that bodies are just a case for what's inside; it's the personality and mind that truly count. Doesn't mean we shouldn't spend our time dressing up though, that's the fun bit!

  148. You're such an inspiration Louise :) I wish more people had your way of thinking.
    I loved this post and the video you done too.. It's so refreshing to see videos/posts of people the same kind of size/shape as me showing you CAN wear really nice clothes. There's nothing worse than wearing frumpy, hide-away kind of clothes that actually make you look bigger than you are and show off you're worst bits!
    I'd love to see more posts like this in the future :) xxx

  160. Wow- I watch a lot of youtube videos and read a lot of blogs but I don't normally post comments. However this video and post has just inspired me to go on to asos and pick out clothes I would normally shy away from because I feel I am too fat to be wearing dresses skirts etc. Louise you are beautiful and you have really changed my perspective on my own body! Thank you so much xxx

  161. Louise your confidence is contageous! I've had many a body issue in my 22 years mainly because of scarring. After reading this it's just made me re-evaluate. I like cake, I don't like treadmills, and so what?! So thanks. I'm now going to go on holiday and rock my bikini and not care what other people may think (hopefully).
    I also just started a blog after following you and Zoe for a very long time. Also alot of love for that last dress! xo

  164. It's so refreshing to see Louise, whenever I read any of your posts I can't help but smile. Your attitude to life is genuinely contagious and everyone should have a Louise in their life!

    I get the same thing on my upper arms, never been able to diagnose what it is. The sun makes it better though so it's always worse in the winter. Glad i'm not the only one!

  167. You are SO inspirational Louise, people like you should be on TV and go into schools to promote that you don't have to be a size zero to look good and it's not always the way. Baby Glitter is very lucky to have you as her mummy, you are so lovely and genuine and I hope (and am very sure) that she grows up as great and lovely as you! Keep doing what you do best, always enjoy reading your posts :')

  168. You look gorgeous, Louise! I see that some people even said you should consider modeling, I'm with them on that one. You look so photogenic in all of these! I'm also chubby, and I've always had a self image problem. I think as I grow older I get better, especially with someone as lovely as my boyfriend by my side that tells me every single day that I am beautiful and he loves me. Surrounding yourself with loving and warm people like that really helps.

  172. Oh Lou, we love you :) I like wearing dresses but whenever I do my thighs rub together and come out in a rash (even if I'm wearing tights). Does anyone know where I can get little shorts to wear under my dresses to stop this? But not shapewear, its sooo uncomfy.

  174. love this post and would love to see more of these / more videos! you're quite the inspiration, ya know ;) I also have many things about my body that I'm insecure about, but I'm also coming to the point where I just don't give a flipping **** and am gonna wear whatever the heck I want :) we focus on some things way too much and sometimes they go completely unnoticed by the outside world - what a waste of time for us to fret over these insecurities or imperfections. keep the inspiration coming, louise! :) xoxo!
