Which is why I felt complete joy when I saw this picture. I’m going to be as honest as pie here (yum, pie) and tell you… I LOVE this picture of me. And no, it doesn’t make me egotistical to say that. It’s totally OK to love a picture of yourself! I love the smile, the freedom in my face and the naturalness of it all. I love the way the breeze blew my skirt and, even the way my hair ended up in my face. When I see this picture I saw a pretty, confident plus size woman. Someone that I strive to be on more occasions. I see myself feeling good about who I am—and I’ll keep that imagine in my mind on the days I feel off or less than perfect.
I love every single thing about this outfit. So, here’s my usual write up. Enjoy!
The Style: Black Crop Top from Eloquii and Coral, Midi-skirt from Asos Curve
The Scoop: I bought this skirt on super sale last year from Asos. A quick look through my closet and you will quickly see I have an addiction to bright coral clothing. I have no idea why. The color is like my swan song. I had never worn a midi skirt and was unsure of how it would work for my short 5 foot 4 inch, high wasted frame. I finally took it out of the closet a few months ago and, holy cow, do I love it! It is the ultimate in lady like feminine. A bit Grace Kelly. Almost too prim, if you let it be… but than that POP of color keeps it fresh and current!
Earlier this year I started noticing a lot of women wearing plus size crop tops. I’m not one to want to show off my mid-section but, there was a piece of me that thought maybe my super-short torso could carry off a little bit of a crop? When I saw this classic, ballet-inspired plus size crop top pop up at Eloquii I knew I had to have it. And yes, I paid full price for it!!
Asos and Eloquii are two brands I really keep an eye on these days. Asos is a constant source of well-priced current clothes that allow you to play with trends in an accessible way. Eloquii speaks to me. No really. I love so much of what they are doing now.
I’m not a very adventurous or fussy fashionista. I don’t even consider myself a fashionista. More so, a regular gal who likes clothes. I like my outfits simple and minimalist. It felt like a natural fit to pair this basic top with a bright skirt and take it for a whirl!
Fit Notes: As always, Asos Curve house brand runs a bit large. The Eloquii top is true to size and a real crop- not a skimmer.
Paired With: Yet again keeping it very simple here. A single, long necklace, black ankle strap shoes and a wrapped leather bracelet which adds a tiny bit of edge. Just a tiny bit.
