A Sunny Day in Fall

Plus Size Style, Style

I think Seattle forgot that it’s October and we’re supposed to have cooler weather. This weekend was so bright, sunny and warm, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was expecting the weather to turn at any minute, but it stayed sunny! I had to get out and snap a few pics in one of my favorite dresses before the weather changed – so even though we’re back to our regularly scheduled weather pattern, hopefully this dress will brighten up your day!

One of the questions I get asked a lot by my clients is if I’ve always known how to style outfits. In my opinion, style is something that changes and grows with you. I think we can all see the obvious transitions, when someone shifts from wearing band t-shirts and Converse to suits and heels, but sometimes we fail to see the less obvious transitions and how someone’s personal style develops over time. As I put this dress on, I was thinking about how I would have worn it a year ago, and how much I’ve changed since then. Last year, I wore this dress very basic, with yellow and gray accessories. It doesn’t look bad; it’s just a plainer way of styling the dress. However, this year I opted for something more bold: accessorizing with blue!

Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t dressing as amazing as you think you should be right off the bat. Style is always evolving and changing – and you’ll learn to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror trying on different things to see what looks the best!
