I was kind of depressed last week when I surfed through the What I Wore Wednesday linky at The Pleated Poppy. I’ve had a newfound interest in looking decent. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m FINALLY not pregnant and don’t have any intentions to be anytime soon (or maybe ever). Maybe it’s just the need to feel put together in some area of my life. Or maybe I just want to make sure my husband is proud of me and finds me attractive.
But when I perused the linky for ideas, there were NO plus-sized bloggers to be found. What is up with that? Just because I am plus-sized doesn’t mean (a) I don’t want to look nice; (b) I can’t share pictures of myself; or (c) I am not cute. Because I am! (Or at least my husband says so.)
When I asked on the Facebook page, there was a resounding affirmative to me sharing pictures here for What I Wore Wednesday. Because there’s a lot of plus-size gals out there who want to dress nicely and need ideas.
So here we go …
Wore this Saturday for hanging around at home and going out to dinner with my grandparents. LOVE this t-shirt that I got from Gwynnie Bee.
I got this shirt from Gwynnie Bee to try out. I ADORE it, and I went out and found it at Dillard’s today so I could have it for my very own. (Gwynnie Bee is a plus-sized clothes rental sort of thing. I’ll have to explain it in another post.) It’s great to discover a brand that fits well and I really like.
These are my “pregnancy shoes” from this past pregnancy. Comfy, slip-on, yet kind of cute at least. They feel like tennis shoes but look more like flats.
I entertained some family at our apartment, and then went out to dinner with my family and my grandparents again!
top: Faded Glory from Goodwill. pants: INC via Ross a few years ago. tank: Christopher and Banks (similar – love their tanks!). sandals: Nine West. earrings: Lane Bryant, I think.
Libbie’s adorable dress is Hanna Andersson, found at a consignment sale. She is nutso about it.
This looks nicer in the picture than it felt on. I like sparkles and was therefore drawn to this shirt at Goodwill last year. The pants are too small now, though, and really need to take their own trip to Goodwill. They’re just much nicer than any other black pants I have that fit.
I wore this to church and then came home and threw on the yoga pants.

This is my favorite outfit of the week. I have this ruffled tank in black and aqua and I’ve been wearing the heck out of them. The red pants are new … my first colored denim. And I am crazy in love with them. I bought a size up like the reviewers recommended and they are perfect.
I ran a zillion errands this day.
dress: Belk. cami: Bass. shoes: Payless a million years ago.
I felt better in this dress than I think it looks. Maybe just needs some shapewear. Or maybe not meant for nursing chest …
At some point in the day, I was wearing a
Lisa Leonard – ((together)) Necklace too, but this pic was toward the end of the afternoon. I dropped off and picked up kids at VBS and went shopping with my sister.
So … what do you think?
