OOTD: Pink leopard, rainbows, and hearts

This is what I wore for my second day at Disney. I spent half the day in the pool, which was wonderful, and when I finally dragged myself out of the water, I had another colorful and comfortable outfit planned out.

OOTD: Rocking my giant bow at Disney

plus size outfit with black star print dress and hot pink giant bow

I picked this giant bow for my trip to Disney both because I will take any opportunity to wear huge things on my head, and because it was the closest thing to the Disney aesthetic I could think of while staying true to my own style. The dress I picked because it’s comfortable, fun, and perfect for hot weather.

OOTD: Letting my inner child out at the Boston Grown-Ups Museum

Have I ever mentioned that I love Boston? Seriously, this town is pretty awesome. We have stuff like the Boston Grown-Ups Museum, where the Children’s Museum opens up for an adult-only night. I was so excited when I heard about it–I would finally get the chance to climb the three-story rope structure!

It turned out that the structure was full of small spaces that I could barely fit through (almost as if it were designed for kids or something). Between that and the large number of people trying to fit through it at once, I started feeling claustrophobic and had to get out pretty quickly–but at least I went in it, which is still pretty awesome.

It’s time for Fatshion February again!

How did it get to be February already?

That means it’s Fatshion February time, which means daily (or as close to daily as I can get myself to do) outfit posts. I still haven’t decided whether I’ll post my outfits here first, then cross-post them to my Tumblr, or vice versa…but one or the other, they will eventually end up in both places. If you want to see my Fatshion February pictures from last year, you can find them here.

I still have a bunch of recent outfit posts to catch up on, so I’ll try to post some of those as well. (And posts about the two awesome clothing swaps I went to last weekend, and Arisia, and all sorts of other stuff….I have like 25 million things I want to write about, and I just need to sit myself down and do it.)

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s outfits!

Cider-making, giant veggies, and a tiny horse!

Here are a few pictures of the adventures I had while wearing my new giant bow. Steve, my brother, and one of our friends went to a small-town harvest fair, where saw, among other things, a giant zucchini.

I also met an incredibly sweet 12-year old golden retriever therapy dog.

OOTD: The biggest bow ever

So, I’ve been known to wear giant bows now and again.

But the bow I recently bought myself as a birthday present could eat those other bows for breakfast. It’s the biggest, baddest, shiniest bow there is.

Bow: The Velvet Village, tank top: Lane Bryant, skirt: ASOS Curve, shoes: Clarke’s, earrings: gift from my aunt, necklace: eximious_jewelry168 on eBay, rainbow bangle: So Good, other bangles: Deb and Torrid, rings: ancient

I wore it for a wonderful day of adventures, which I’ll post about separately. It was the perfect early fall New England day, complete with apple cider making and pony-petting.
