Plus Size Casual Fashion: As you know I love to wear skirts all summer. They make me feel girly and skirts are airy in the heat. The idea of an outfit being dressy and casual at the same time is the best way to enjoy a day. Putting together basics clothing that can be worn from your closet, then pair them with great jewelry. That is exactly what I did for this week’s What I Wore Wednesday post. The silk sweater is from my closet Liz Claiborne. I have the sweater for sometime, now that I am smaller then I was few years ago it fits again.
My skirt is my own creation. I had an older knit skirt that was a favorite and I love the fit. Using old skirt’s silhouette I copied on to paper to make a pattern, with quick sew, voila a knit skirt that comfortable and goes with most basic tops. The best part about having a pattern ready made, if I see fabric I love, I purchase a yard, and make a skirt. TIP: Hang on to those older perfect skirts you can always take hem to a seamstress and have the the perfect skirt rise again.
Plus Size Casual Fashion: Just adding a few extra accessories, can really take a casual outfit and elevate it something fashionable. The scarf is a Lands End it is a thin cotton knit striped scarf that I picked up at a thrift store. The belt to was also from a thrift store. Why pay $20 for a belt when you can find one for $2. Never underestimate thriftying if you can’t find plus clothes be sure to check out scarves or other accessories. There is always a jem that was someones trash, that can be your treasure.

You would expect it to be metal but no it is make from real wood. The natural grain of the wood is so unexpected in a watch. The face is in wood trimmed in metal and the features are delicate but on trend with fall fashion magazines. I loved pairing the watch with my existing bracelets and stacking them. The silver accents in the watch worked well with my bracelets but also my wedding rings. Pretty Right?
