On Top of the World

I was fortunate to get a shot or two in this look, between appointments, at one of my favorite parks. I’ve read that full figured women should steer clear of stripes because they have the propensity to make you look bigger. While that may be true, I don’t buy into that notion. My sole purpose in getting dressed is not to give the illusion that I am small. Rather it is to feel good in my clothes. Stripes make me feel good so I wear them, as often as I like. This look has become a favorite go to, with horizontal and vertical stripes in full rage =)

  1. I definitely believe you should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and happy, and I like stripes too and that's why I wear them. But I wasn't always comfortable wearing them because when I was growing up my mom would tell me that I couldn't wear stripes, but now I don't really care. I love the horizontal and vertical stripes in the outfit, you look amazing! :)

    1. I discovered a personal connection with stripes within the last 5-8 years. I honestly didn't know that I "shouldn't" wear stripes until I read an article advising that plus-size women should steer clear of them! LOL! Thanks Nina!!!
