Fierce Outfit of the Day: Playing in the Sand

Plus size fashion

One of the things that I absolutely love about living in Florida is being so close to the beach.  Growing up in NYC we only went to the beach 3 months out of the year and it was an event!  We lived about 2 hours or so away from the sandy shores. We would get up super early, cook a whole bunch of food, and load up in my Grandfather’s van.  There were always at least ten of us going and we would stay at the beach until the sun went down, not leaving until I had my vanilla ice cream cone from my favorite shop on the boardwalk.  Now, I’m only a 15 minute drive from the coast and have plenty of beaches and boardwalks to choose from.  When I feel stressed and overwhelmed, I take a drive and hit the sand not even needing to get the water.  All I need is to listen to the ocean and breath in the salty air.  After a few moments, all is right with the world.

Polka Dot Top

I wore this outfit to an Art Fair in Juno Beach a few weekends ago. I didn’t want to wear my normal beach bum attire but I didn’t want to be too bundled up either.  So I dug up this polka dot blouse I bought at Goodwill over a year ago.  The sheer material is perfect for beach weather and layering it over a white cami brightened up enough for the daytime.  I went with my normal dark wash jeans and sandals just in case I wanted to dip my toes in the sand afterwards.

Plus Size Fashion

To stay with the neutral theme I had going on with the outfit, I went with my brown earrings.  They always make me feel so earthy. LOL.  The necklace gave me a pop of color which, as you guys know by now, I have to have with whatever I’m wearing.

When was the last time you played in the sand?
