Country girl

Country girl // New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr in western wear inspired outfit

I am a city girl now, but when I was a kid we moved to the country. We had a small farm with cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and bees; I went to a very very small school (there were less than 30 people in my whole school); there were no footpaths anywhere near our place, or public transport. Actually, in the nearest town, public transport didn’t exist either. Welcome to the back of beyond. Continue reading

Island Hopper

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Hope & Harvest Island Hopper Dress in black

As you will have noticed, I wear a lot of black. It used to be that I wore black because there weren’t colourful options in plus size clothing, then I started wearing a colour as more and more choices became available. About a year ago I decided to reclaim my fashion voice and define my style, and that has meant going back to blacks, to neutrals, to stripes … back to basics. Continue reading

Rule Breakers Club

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger This is Meagan Kerr wears Yours Clothing grey striped turtleneck swing dress

You know how much I enjoy breaking so called fashion rules, right? I centred my entire final year exhibition around it when I was at uni and I have shared countless pictures of myself and other awesome women breaking fashion rules . I’m unapologetic about my love for stripes, bodycon and wearing clothes that make me feel awesome. Continue reading

Kate Madison Jeans

This is Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison Jeans - skinny leg and straight leg jeans

You have probably noticed that I’ve been wearing jeans a lot over the last few months (well, if you’re following me on Instagram you will have noticed), and that’s because it’s cold and jeans are easy. I know I’m not the only one who rocks the jeans and tee look on the regular! Continue reading

You would be prettier if you smiled

Meagan Kerr wears Dreammaker Sweater Dress from Harlow

I’m one of those people who has resting bitch face. No, I’m not in a bad mood, I’m not mad at you (trust me, you’d know if I was), I’m not scowling, that’s just my face. The amount of times I’ve heard things like “You would be prettier if you smiled” and “cheer up love, it can’t be that bad” must number in the hundreds (if not thousands) by now. Here’s the thing though – my face is fine just as it is. Some days I don’t feel like plastering on a smile just to make myself more pleasing to someone else, and I shouldn’t have to. Except sometimes I feel like I do… Continue reading

Wine time

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears wine beanie, top and tote

If there is one colour that has made it’s way into my wardrobe this winter, it is wine (or marsala, maroon or burgundy, depending on what store you are shopping at). It’s a warm cosy colour that is perfect for the cooler months and if you are a fan of a darker palette for your wardrobe (hello, me), it works really well with your black, grey, camel and navy neutrals! Continue reading

Sweet Like Candy

Pantone Colour of the Year - Rose Quartz and Serenity

The Pantone Colours of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity – a warm rose tone and a cool tranquil blue. This means that we are now seeing a lot of pastel/candy colours cropping up everywhere from homeware to fashion and I for one am loving it. I thought that with Easter just around the corner I’d share a few sweet treats that have been catching my eye…

Slouchy summer

Meagan Kerr wears Yours Maxi Dress and 17 Sundays Slouch Kimono

I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve worn this maxi dress so much this summer that I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve worn it. I’ve worn it over my bathing suit, out to BBQs, mooching about the house… it’s been my go to dress because it’s soft, comfortable and it doesn’t wrinkle. Continue reading

Stripes and animal print

NZ Style Curvettes Pattern Clash: Meagan Kerr wears 17 Sundays Stripe Batwing Tee and Autograph Animal Print Joggers

Is there anything that sums up my style more than 17 Sundays, stripes and monochrome? This tee was absolutely made for me, so when it showed up in a parcel of goodies from 17 Sundays recently, I was smitten! I’ve been wearing it a lot with black shorts, but couldn’t resist pairing these stripes with my animal print pants for a bit of a pattern clash. Continue reading
