I’ve said it before, I will say it again, I LOVE the plus size blogging community! There are so many reasons, the support network, the amazing people, and let’s not forget getting fashion and outfit inspiration from ladies of a similar size and shape!
I have been following Becky and Claire’s blogs for some time now, and I thought their monthly challenge based around an outfit from Pinterest that they try and recreate from their own wardrobe was fab! When I saw their second instalment (found here and here) I was really surprised at how much I liked the look! For those that know me pretty well, I am a bit of a colour and pattern coordination freak, when I was pregnant and accidently went to a hospital appointment in my super comfy pink crocs and wearing red I almost had a meltdown in the car park, so to mix up florals and stripes for me is a major fashion faux pas, but now having joined the Kimono Klub (Becky’s words), and the fact I am constantly looking at ways to wear it (every day if poss) I thought I would give it a go…. So here is my take on the look….
Sorry to post about the kimono again so soon after my post on Monday, I couldn’t help myself 🙁
I really like it, and I didn’t start hyper-ventilating when I looked in the mirror when I saw the clash, it got a bit thumbs up for me when I saw the girl’s in it and I think I will be wearing this look again! Thanks ladies, and looking forward to your next “Pinspiration”!
Do you ever break the fashion rules?
