Last week was full of events and meetings and one very special photo shoot – I was just too tired (and lazy, to be honest…) to do my Monday outfit post. That’s why it’s coming today – I hope you don’t mind. ;)

At least, the outfit is something new and unusual – me wearing a skirt and sneakers! How did this happen? :D To be honest, I originally wanted to wear this look with yellow ballerinas and it looks cool too, but then I realized that it was time to do something different again. That’s why I went for my super old adidas sneakers (unfortunately, I don’t even remember the model name) and I love the casual style of this look.

P.S.: That’s my new hair – the next “more blonde” appointment is at the end of May. ;)

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! ♥

It’s Christmas week! :) Today and on Friday, I’ll show you my last two looks for Christmas and hopefully inspire you to find your own style for the holidays!

Today’s outfit is all about that vintage flair – with an actual vintage piece I got from my mother – it’s the beaded collar! Instead of wearing a necklace or other statement jewelry, I decided to go for something completely different and I must say that this is the best idea I’ve ever had because the whole look is so special – just because of this detail! Of course, this dress is already an absolute stunner for all festive occasions and actually doesn’t need any accessories (just have a look at the → dress in the online store – and if you order today, with a little bit of luck you can still get the dress or another S&J piece in time for Christmas [but no guarantee from my side]! And P.S.: next Monday, I’ll show you the perfect dress for New Year’s Eve! ;)).

As it is pretty cold outside, I wanted to add a second collar. You’ve already seen this fake fur collar a few times up here and I always find a different way to wear it (you can see the other styles at the end of this post!) – this time, it looks like an open bolero jacket. :) It also rounds up that glamorous touch of the whole look.

By the way (and you’ll definitely notice it when you’re watching the video ;)): → these shoes are too large for my little feet, but they are so great ’cause they have the same color as the dress (well, almost, 99%!), so I wore them for this shoot but I just can’t walk in them properly, so I was thinking about giving them to someone who’ll be able to wear them. They’re a EU37 but they fit more like a 38 or even 39 (and I’m usually a 37.5). So if you fell in love with them, please leave a comment (and don’t forget to type in your e-mail address in the corresponding field or comment with your actual FB account so I can write you) – first come, first serve, and you’ll only have to pay for your preferred shipping. :)

So, you’ve already seen what I wore on my way to the beach – this is the bikini I wore underneath. ;) I really love the dot combo and the different possibilities to wear them – there are also detachable straps for the bra and you can wear the bottom high-waisted or not, showing more of the bigger dots or not.
Fun fact: I’ve always been a fan of strapless bikinis, since I was a small kid at the beach in Brazil – I always wanted to wear everything strapless. :) And it hasn’t changed.

I know there should always be a little message in every #BeachBodyNotSorry post, but to be honest, I don’t really know what to say since I already said it all → last year. But today, I really want to point out again how important it is to not let other people’s possible (!) thoughts and reactions stop you from going to the beach or pool in summer. I mean – it’s been super hot these days (and pretty rainy, too) and I just can’t think of a summer hidden behind lots of clothes just to hide my body, and neither should you. Even if there’s something you don’t really like about yourself and your own body, there’s absolutely no need to wrap yourself in loads of long-sleeved shirts and pants, because, seriously, you’re going to melt and this is an even worse feeling than other people’s stupid looks. They’ll stare anyway (because we all do it, it’s natural!), so why not ignore it and wear whatever you feel like. And the beach is so much more fun when you’re wearing swimwear! Just don’t forget your sunscreen! ;)
