Pyjamas for Christmas

Christmas pyjamas

New pyjamas at Christmas is pretty much the best Christmas Eve tradition. I ordered my new PJs ages ago but when they arrived they were way too short so now I’m on a last minute mission to find the perfect pyjamas for this Christmas Eve. Christmas morning is always a casual affair for us, having breakfast and opening presents in your PJs is completely acceptable. But what pyjamas to get? Here’s a few that I’ve found – let me know which ones you like! Continue reading


Plus Size Christmas Jumpers and Tees

Plus size Christmas jumpers and tees

Every year I put together a selection of my favourite plus size Christmas jumpers, and this year is no exception. Added to the mix are a few Christmas tees, because it’s summer here in New Zealand and that means it’s way too warm to wear a big fluffy jumper. I bought my first Christmas tee last year and I love it. Continue reading


Party outfits for festive season

Plus size festive season party outfits

This time of year things start to get busy with Christmas parties, end of year work dos, New Years Eve and general festive season madness. My friend was messaging me earlier this week asking for help trying to find a last minute dress for an important occasion and I realised that as a plus size woman it can be hard to pick up the perfect dress at the last minute. So, I’ve done the hard yards and found some gorgeous outfits to help you get your glam look ahead of time. Continue reading


Style Beyond 22 Lookbook

22+ style cover

I think that size diversity in fashion is really important – when you’re a size 22 (or bigger), it’s hard to imagine what a piece of clothing is going to look like on you when a brand is showing a size 16 dress on a size 12 model. That’s one of the reasons I started blogging – because I wanted to see bodies like mine and I wanted to know what clothes would look like on someone like me. 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


Pretty shoes for plus size feet

Staavias - pretty shoes for plus size feet

Gustavia Lui is a total #girlboss – she’s not even 30 and already she has spotted a problem in the fashion industry and come up with a solution. She’s the managing director of Staavias, a New Zealand based brand making pretty shoes for plus size feet.

Plus size activewear picks

There seems to be a lot of assumption that plus size women aren’t or don’t want to be active. At least, that’s what you’d think given that finding really great plus size activewear has in the past been very difficult. That’s not the case anymore, there are some brands doing great things and I wanted to share a few of my fave picks of what is around at the moment. Continue reading


Autumn style picks

As I’m sure you all know by know, autumn is my favourite season for fashion – lots of layering, a darkening colour palette, snuggly knits and any excuse for getting cosy with a big scarf. I’m loving denim, merino, checks, stripes… here are a few of my style picks for autumn. Continue reading

As the weather cools down I’m starting to get really excited about my wardrobe for autumn and winter. I love layering and wearing warm snuggly clothes, so this really is my favourite time of year. I’m not one of those people who has “a summer wardrobe” and “a winter wardrobe” though – I try to have things in my wardrobe that I can wear all year round, and this is when a few staples are important to help carry me through from hot weather to chilly temps.
