I promised you more pants on the blog – here we are again with some new jeans! Even though you already know these ones in gray from → this post. I love these jeans so much and I’m happy that I received the blue version too (this time normal length because the petite length wasn’t available and EU size 46 because it’s super elastic and my gray one is already pretty loose!) so I can wear jeans more often. ;)

Good news for one lucky girl: I’m giving away a denim package with sheego, including three pairs of jeans of the winner’s choice!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is answer the following question in the comments by February 28 (terms and conditions at the end of this blog post):

“How do you like to wear your jeans?”

Here’s my answer: as you’ve probably noticed, jeans are still not that typical for me, even though I do wear them more often for running errands – but not as an actual outfit. Anyways, I prefer the casual version or some kind of mix like this one here. And shhh – the next outfit on the blog will also be a jeans look, even more casual than this one. ;) And with my new hair cut!

I think this look is kind of unusual for me – not because of the whole style but because of the shirt. I usually don’t wear shirts with messages on them, but this time I couldn’t resist buying this tee because it says what I always tell you:

“you are your own beautiful”

I’ve already had this topic in → one of my “Private” posts, talking about “perfect” and how we can only define it for ourselves. It’s important that we understand that “beautiful” isn’t set in stone, it’s something that lies in the eye of the beholder, and we can only define it for ourselves because of our very own taste. Plus: “beautiful” isn’t only an adjective for the outer shell. A character can be so incredibly beautiful when it comes from a loving soul. Being beautiful doesn’t only mean pretty – you can be even more beautiful when you treat others with respect, tolerance and love.

Of course, this outfit is still a bit unusual for me because of the casual look. But still, the skirt is super sparkling – too bad the lighting outside swallowed all that colorful glitter (the skirt looks purple but the glitter is blue, golden and pink) which makes it all special enough for my taste. :)

When I put this outfit together, it instantly reminded me of Carrie Heffernan (raise your hands, “King of Queens” fans!). I can’t say in which episode, but I somehow had the feeling I’d seen something quite similar on the show. So this is kind of a 90s look (and yes, I’m not that happy to say that because I’m a 90s kid and I know about all those horrible trends like Buffalo sneakers and tattoo chokers – and even though these trends keep coming back against my will, I must say that some of them are pretty cool) but I really love it! :)

Another thing about this outfit – and I can’t point it out often enough because we finally need to understand that it isn’t bad: #visiblebellyoutline – I have to say that it looks even more visible in the pictures than in real life, but hey, so what? You can see my belly! If you feel shocked or even disgusted, please know and finally understand that a belly isn’t something gross. Bellies are part of our bodies and seeing them shouldn’t make us feel bad and especially not make others puke. We need to stop focusing on that “I need to hide my ‘problem areas’” feeling! Our bodies aren’t problems! And fashion is not supposed to be a “hiding assistant”. ;) #nuffsaid

Here we go – time for the first “real” outfit of the new year! I’ve saved this dress for a special post because it’s so amazing! When the Kenzo x H&M collection was launched, I was pretty sad that there were only the usual “small” sizes available – but there were a few oversized pieces which could definitely been bought and worn by plus-sized women. Like this dress! This is a EU size 40 and still huge enough for me to wear it like it’s supposed to be worn – oversized. It’s also my favorite print of the collection and I love the combination with black.

While I usually love wearing figure-hugging clothes or add a belt to make them look like it, this time, I felt like wearing a belt would ruin the whole look (even though it’s kind of cool too), so I went for the original style and yes, I love it. I feel like as a plus-sized woman people will keep saying that wearing something oversized isn’t flattering, while they’ll also scream when you can see my body (happens all the time…). So there’s no way to please everyone – and it shouldn’t be your primary mission when dressing. So here’s a resolution for the new year: if you like it – wear it. Nothing new on this blog, but I feel like I can’t say it often enough – and I want you all to promise me that you’ll stick to this resolution! Stop wearing stuff recommended by people who don’t even know you (uh, magazines – forget them!) just to please them. Stop wearing stuff that you think will make people stop thinking badly of you when you don’t even like the clothes. If you feel like wearing something that draws attention to you – wear it! If you feel like wearing something oversized that will make you look huge – wear it! If you feel like wearing something that will show every little chubby part of your body – wear it! It’s your choice – never forget this! ♥
