Woah, an OOTD (in case you aren’t with the times, that stands for outfit of the day) from Ali? I know, I know… I’ve never really been super into fashion or what I’m wearing. Being a curvy girl all my life, I’ve always just wore what I felt comfortable or “smaller” in. Well, enough of that! Though I’m actually at my heaviest weight ever right now (but I’m working on that, too… that’s a story for another day), I am ready to experiment more with my clothing. I’ve recently really got into beauty and fashion guru videos on YouTube and one particular girl that I adore is Louise of Sprinkleofglitter. I found some of her seasonal look book’s for curvy girls really inspiring and I decided to try out some of them!
I didn’t think I’d be this satisfied with the way I felt in something I wouldn’t usually wear, but I did, and I knew I had to share it with you. Not because I want to show off my cool clothes (I mean, these things have been aging in my closet for years), but because I want other curvy girls to get the message that you can get creative with your fashion and try new things. Just because you’ve got hips and a stomach doesn’t mean you should hide it in baggy t-shirts.
Unfortunately, all these pieces of clothing (except the shoes) have been purchased more than a year ago, so I don’t think they can be found in the stores anymore… but I’ll still let you know where I got everything and also link you to some similar styles that I’m currently eying. 😉
The floral skirt with elastic waste band is from Old Navy; the blush pink cardigan is from H&M; the tan, suede wedges are from Amazon; the basic black tank… well, you could find one of those just about anywhere! 😛 Now for a few similar pieces that I’ve been eying:
- ASOS Curve Exclusive Midi Skater Skirt in Check Print | $32.04
- ModCloth Roll the Clip Skirt | $57.99
- ModCloth Ikebana for All Skirt | $69.99
- Old Navy Zip-Front Boyfriend Cardi | $39.94
I hope you ladies enjoyed this post! Let me know if you’d like to see more OOTD posts from me. Just comment below! 🙂
