Workwear II: Office Florals

Continuing with the workwear theme I've decided to dedicate my blog to this summer, I've put together this outfit for those of you that love floral prints (such as myself). I love florals - in all seasons- because they're great to dress up or dress down, depending on what you wear them with and how you accessorize. They're a fun way to add print to any outfit, without being overwhelming, and especially in the workplace, they remain conservative while being a fun way to perk up an outfit.

Workwear I: The Two-Tone Blazer

Since the start of my blog, one of the main questions I get are related to office/business clothes - how to style them, where to purchase them, and how to make them work for plus sizes. I realize the struggle that is finding business and business casual outfits for plus sizes - traditional business cuts are just not at all what I'm comfortable in or feel I look good in. Since starting law school, I've really upped my search in finding affordable, comfortable and work-appropriate wear.

This summer I have my first full-time, full-fledged, real law job. Luckily, its a business-casual as opposed to strict business attire environment, but finding different ways to wear different outfits 5-days a week over and over has been a challenge.  As such, I've decided to dedicate my outfit posts this summer to workwear.

Stay Tuned!

Spring Postponed

So, who knew winter would last a solid 6 months this year? Don't get me wrong - I'll take winter over summer any day - but not at the expense of my beloved fall and spring! But just because the weather says one thing, doesn't mean I can't adorn myself in pending spring fashions, right?

Also, for those of you nearing the end of the semester - good luck on your exams!

Fa[t]shion February

Its crazy to think I've been on the Fatshion February train for 3 years now. I feel like the initiative is a great way to celebrate plus size fashion in a moreso cohesive manner, and gives those who do not typically do outfit posts a chance to showcase their style through a community of supportive participants.

I highly recommend you get on the bandwagon by either following trending Fatshion February hashtags, or alternatively following/submitting to the official tumblr:

I hope this winter is treating you well! Its been quite warm here as of late, but that is soon to change so I'm relishing this pleasant weather and constant sun as much as I can!

Also, if you live in the Ottawa area, the Forever 21 at the Rideau Centre is due to add a plus size section in their store this month! SUPER EXCITE!
