It may have been the wave of a new semester that inspired this ensemble as I visited my parents. I wanted to feel more professional- better kept. With school pulling everyone back, I was thinking a lot about academics and future careers. So I put these plus size pieces together, and we wandered to the coast to make a day of it.
Whenever you are in an old harbor town, or any “retirement” based community- look for thrift stores! The shops set up in these senior towns means lots of bargains and great vintage pieces.
I felt so free in this outfit. The material of my top allowed for some ocean breeze to fly through my skin. I wanted to stand above the sand in my bare stockings and become part of the water that lulls the beach through the night. If only I could I purchase a sailboat for as cheap as I got this outfit….
Blue Bow-Tie Top- $2
Octagon Belt- $1
Wool Skirt- $4
Navy Tights- $2
Leather Shoulder Bag- $5
Red Sweater (on bag)- $1
Grey Flats- $3
Plus size outfit= $18 total!
This is probably the least expensive plus size outfit ever! This doesn’t always play out like this, but if you’re patient you’ll get lucky at your local shops. Do you have a favorite plus size outfit that was a total steal? What is it and where did you pick it up?
