I can’t count how many times I have been told that Plus sized gals don’t belong in shorts.  It’s the summer ya’all… and it’s way too hot so I’ll wear it if I have it.  The fact is, I live in shorts if I can find a pair that suits the rest of my outfit and as many know who follow this blog – I’m a casual and laid back soul who loves to dress according to what makes me feel comfortable, not what others think I should wear.  Before I became “plus sized” I actually wore a lot of shorts or lived most of my teenage life in a bikini, because I like to be cool and this is Hawaii, where most people are lightly clothed, lol.  So, while my thighs are thick, I like them to be free and cool, so summer means either shorts or dresses.  Today, I remind you all that plus size girls can wear shorts too… with a quick summer plus size casual outfit.

Earlier in the month I got a really cute ribbon crusher hat in white from Scala Pronto and thought that my casual, but functional look for the day would be the perfect marriage.  Since the boys and I were out and about playing tourist on our island, I thought – why not strut my stuff in a fun hat with a comfy outfit to pair with it.

The #LC511 Hat is a wide brim hat that is lightweight.  It includes a sewn-ribbon design and also provides SPF 50 protection which makes it perfect to pair with your summer outfits or year round.  It has a pretty tie at the back with an interior swear band for all-day comfort while wearing and includes colors in white, black, turquoise, poppy and fuchsia.  This is the ideal accessory for the pool and beach as well as a casual (like I’m wearing) or dress up style.

Now, I know what you’re thinking… “But, Honey – isn’t that a workout or active wear shirt?”  Well, Yes and that is the whole reason I wore it today, hence the word “active wear”.  Don’t you know that running after three kids is major cardio?  Hahaha!  I needed something I could move in because keeping up with the boys while they are on Summer break means I have to be ready in an instant and constantly on my toes… but, don’t worry about me, I digress!  It’s cool and comfy but loose enough to allow me to really be active and have some fun with my littles.  And, I happen to like the saying on it, who doesn’t like a cute graphic tank anyway?

Growing up in Hawaii, being a surfer girl and tomboy for most of my life has really allowed me to embrace the casual island living.  I’m not gonna lie, you will catch me in a tank and shorts or a dress most of the year if I’m not rocking out a pair of jeans.  I love it and I love that I can be comfortable and get down and dirty with my sons if the time calls for me to do so.  While I’m not a size 7 like I used to be, I still use shorts and I think plus size gals like myself shouldn’t be ashamed to use shorts too.  It’s comfortable and don’t we deserve to be comfy, especially during the summer?

“Forever & Always!”

Oh Fall… where are you?  Maui is super hot and humid and man I would love some cool chilled air my way, but it just hasn’t been so lately.  It was so warm today that a tank and shorts was on my outfit list… less is better, right? (did I just say that? lol)  So here is my Plus Sized Outfit of the Day…

OOTD Old Navy

You know in Hawaii we rock out flip flops like they are about to be discontinued, lol.  So here is my super quick outfit for going out and tackling Costco with my three sons.  Overall I have to say it was a fun day… we picked up my lil sis and spent a few hours with her while we tackled some errands… overall, I consider it a WIN.

  • Top – Love is Forever Graphic Tank from Old Navy
  • Bottoms – Denim Bermudas/Cut offs from Torrid
  • Flip flops – Guess
  • Watch – Invicta
  • Sunglasses – Maui Jim
  • Necklace – And I always get a lot of questions about my Teddy Bear Necklace.  Sadly I don’t know where it is from, my husband bought me this pendant before we had children, over 10 years ago.  I have heard that some jewelers carry it – but I have not seen it at local stores.

For my makeup today… I really was aiming to bring Fall into my life, even if it meant I had to do my makeup like Fall was in full swing. lol I also have had my Tamanna palette now for a couple of weeks and each opportunity I have I try to play with new shade combinations and had a few in mind I wanted to pair today. Since I only really wear makeup once a week, I was sure gonna make sure to get some makeup lovin’ in.

FOTD Tamanna Palette

I’ve been working on a review for the Tamanna palette, and hope to have it up soon since I see that it is still available.  It drives me nuts when things are limited edition and I have to run out and get them because I just have to have it, but that also means that by the time I have had it long enough for me to actually state my thoughts on the product… I don’t get around to it.  Ooh – and on another note… have you seen my hair?  I know these pictures don’t show it well, but I went dark again… I’m actually really diggin’ it.

This plus sized girl was all about comfort and cool today.  I have been loving the Old Navy Tees and Tanks that they have been releasing lately and I’m all about a graphic tee if it means I can be comfortable.  I love those types of shirts for underneath my slouchy sweaters especially… now if Fall can just make its way here so I can start using them. lol  Wishing you all a wonderful Aloha Friday and a kick ass weekend.

Smooches.

Summer time has got me running around spending quality time with my family so I haven’t had the opportunity to post any Plus Sized Fashion and Style looks for quite a while.  I am hoping I can kick it in high gear and get it together because I know that I’ve been slacking in that department.
Summer Happiness Plus Size OOTD

I can’t believe my eldest son goes back to school in less than a month and the twins start preschool on the same day.  This summer is flying by – I swear I need to get into a time machine and go back in time so I can live in the past for a little while. lol  But nonetheless, my family and I are enjoying the time we have.  The outfit I’m wearing in this week’s Fashion post is simple and I’m bummed to say that I forgot my good camera and only had my cell phone to take pictures – sorry about that.  I hope you enjoy the outfit and the video is just 30 seconds or so long – so you can check that out too.  Have a wonderful week!

What I’m using:

Striped High Low Maxi Dress: Forever 21 Plus
Denim Vest: Old Navy
Watch: Invicta
Flip flops – flats: Guess

Makeup of the Day:
