Right to "Bare" Arms


Hey y'all!  The summer season is fast approaching, and what better way to embrace it than wearing easy breezy clothing?  I have to be honest.  Although, I'm sharing this awesome peacock printed dress with you today, I haven't always had the confidence to wear my arms out as you see in the photos.  I know, I know, you may say, but it's hoooot outside!  Yes, you're right it is!  And ya know what?  I wore this (with the sleeveless denim shirt....baby steps here, mmmmkay...lol) and no one stopped to gawk.  The world didn't end.  In fact everything was just peachy.  So I will be baring my arms all summer, cause a girl can NOT do this humidity.  I encourage all my plus size fashionistas to follow suit.  Embrace your chubby arms, relax, let go and just breathe.  Have an awesome week!

  3. Hi! I'm Brittney and I'm stopping by from the Mingle Monday link up! I go through that same thing with my arms; I am really not fond of them, but Summer just kicks my butt with the heat. Seeing you take the steps, makes me feel like I'm really not alone. Thank you for that, lovely. You look great!

  11. Such a pretty print on the dress, I love the colors, the aqua and pink on the peacock print. Great top and the way you gathered to accentuate the waist.
