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?

Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year because it allows things to cool off here in Hawaii and I can wear my cozy and warm fashion favorites that I love so much.  Besides scarves and slouchy sweaters, another favorite for me is hats or beanies.  Let’s face it – anything that will keep my full head of hair in place without sacrificing style is a plus and I’m all about keeping the ears warm as the months get colder.  Today I share with you a simple plus sized outfit featuring a beret from Scala Pronto.  If you love Fall fashion as much as I do, hopefully I can introduce you to some really cool ideas for this season’s wardrobe.

This slouchy beret from Scala Pronto is fashionable, chic and totally flattering.  I have a larger head size than most people and found that this beret fits easy and comfortably as well.  The collection is affordable, retailing for $32 and available in grey or oatmeal (what I’m wearing).  Slouchy hats just scream Fall and Winter and are so fashion forward.  It’s one of those accessories that has literally stood the changes in trend and attire over the years and paired with your favorite Fall outfit, you will be ready to take on your day.

What am I wearing

Beret – Scala Pronto Beret in Oatmeal

Scarf – Plaid Tartan Scarf / Wrap from Amazon

Top – Black Plus Size Scoop Neck Tee from Torrid

Pants – YMI Jeans Plus Luxe Skinny

Footwear – Steve Madden Heaven Leopard Ballet Flats

Sunglasses – Kenneth Cole New York Metal Frame Rectangular Frame Aviators

Watch – Invicta Silver & Gold Divers

I chose to wear my Tartan Scarf like a wrap – but they go wear if wrapped around the neck like an infinity scarf or swooped around once and hanging long.  While I chose to wear flats today (it’s still too warm for boots), my normal choice in footwear would be a pair of boots – it’s a staple for me this time of year.  Pair this look with fun accessories like your favorite bracelets or necklaces and you have a showstopping outfit.  There is nothing wrong with a casual look – this is mine.

When it comes to Fall fashion – I literally live in cozy and comfy.  Let’s face it, I live in Hawaii where the weather is warm year round, so I look forward to the cool, crisp Fall air.  I practically live in Skinny Jeans and slouchy sweaters and I love pairing those key elements in my wardrobe with fun accessories that make a statement.  Slouchy looks are so on trend for Fall and Winter and Scala Pronto has satisfied that with their well made Beret.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the grey one and rock that out too.
