May Favourites

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears 17 Sundays envy Feather Knit Sweater

Oh holy moly, it really has been a while since I last did a favourites video! I’ve decided to bring back my monthly favourites (and feel free to chase me if I slack off!) because there are loads of things that I really love but I don’t have time to post about individually on the blog.

Fat Studies Conference + Giveaway

Fat Studies: Identity, Agency and Embodiment

As a plus size woman in a culture that promotes only one kind of body and only one kind of lifestyle as acceptable, I am very aware of how fat bodies are viewed in our culture. On a daily basis I encounter anti-fat attitudes, experience or witness bullying of people based solely on their size and am well aware of the different ways in which fat people face discrimination in various settings (from education to employment to healthcare). You only have to look at the comments section on a positive article about a fat person within the mainstream media to see these anti-fat attitudes in practice. Continue reading

Winter layers

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wrapped up in winter layers

As much as I’ve complained about the cold lately, even I have to admit that winter has been pretty mild so far. To be having 17ºC most days in winter is really unusual, it’s more autumnal than wintery, so I’ve been piling on the winter layers but still trying to look cute. Continue reading

An attitude of gratitude

Having an attitude of gratitude

At the end of every day, before I go to sleep, I like to lie there and think about the things that I am grateful for. This act of practising gratitude is one that has helped me to change my outlook on life – it’s made me more positive, it’s helped me cope better when times are tough (and trust me, some times have been really tough lately!) and changed the way that I deal with everything from my business to my relationships.

Winter Queen

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison top from The Warehouse; Chocolat Dreamy Wrap; Premium Tutu from Society Plus; Jemma Hi Top Sneakers from Rubi Shoes

It’s Queen’s Birthday weekend and I thought that this was a great reason to break out my tutu and fur capelet (like I even need an excuse!). It’s gotten really cold over the last week, with the winter weather arriving promptly on the first of June. Continue reading

Plus Size Winter Coats

Plus size winter coats

The first day of winter arrived and true to form I was in my coat. I really feel the cold, so having a good coat to keep me warm is really important – I also like a bit of variety (the perfect coat for every occasion, if you will), so at last count I have at least seven winter coats. Plus I might have ordered another one while writing this post. Continue reading

Relaxing in Rotorua

Relaxing things to do in Rotorua: take the Skyline Gondola up Mt Ngongotaha

Whenever people talk about Rotorua, I’m used to hearing about what an amazing place it is for adventure – you can go zorbing, rafting, mountain biking, you name it. However, when I’m on holiday relaxation is the name of the game, so when we went down to Rotorua last month I was on a mission to find some things to do that were more my speed. Continue reading

Print princess

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison black and white print pants from The Warehouse, Yourself merino top from Farmers, Black Dahlia duster from Empress Eleven, Dotty scarf from K&K, Ezibuy gloves

Monochrome prints will always be my favourite – now that my wardrobe has returned to a darker palette, I find that basic black and white prints go with all of my basics, as well as any coloured accessories I might be rocking. If you’re new to the world of prints and patterns then black and white is a great place to start. Continue reading
