In my recent #PlusSizePromise post, I pledged to wear white more. It’s summery, elegant and sophisticated – yet I scarcely wear it for fear of dropping coffee down myself. I’ve also been conditioned into thinking that fat girls can’t wear white – cue throwbacks to the barbed ‘Thunder-thighs’ comment when first braving white jeans.
Well, here I am wearing white – and not a thunder thigh in sight!
I bought this skirt from ASOS in the sales at the end of last summer. It then sat in my wardrobe for months – partially because it was a wee bit tight on my waist as it’s only a size 16, and partly because I was nervous of wearing such an overtly white skirt out in public!
I’ve since lost a wee bit of waist and got over the fact that my legs are bottle white (and frequently reacting badly to the chlorine of the pool). And I’m so glad that I did get over that fact cause, looking at these photos, I’m more than wee bit smitten!
