Navabi A-Line dress for work

This is Meagan Kerr wears Navabi A Line Dress in wine - plus size workwear

As you all know, I don’t work in an office job any more, so I’m pretty much free to wear whatever I like during working hours (hello pyjamas!). Great for me, but not so helpful for those of you who need ideas on what to wear to work! So when Navabi got in touch and invited me to pick something out of their range I wanted to choose something I knew would be an awesome option to wear either to work or out and about (multi-purpose clothes are the best kind!).

Amongst the flowers

Auckland Winter Garden

One of my favourite places to visit is the Auckland Winter Gardens – it’s always beautiful in there (and warm inside the glasshouses) and there are ever changing displays to enjoy as you stroll around the gardens. It’s the perfect spot to visit when the weather is a bit average but you want to get out and takeĀ  walk, because most of it is undercover. Continue reading

Plus size activewear // New Zealand blogger Meagan Kerr wears Active Intent crop top with State of Mind cropped trousers and wrap top

There seems to be a lot of assumption that plus size women aren’t or don’t want to be active.

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

As we all know I don’t have a job that requires me to dress to corporate standards most of the time (let’s be honest, blogging often takes place when I’m in my pyjamas), but I worked in an office environment for at least ten years so I’ve picked up a few tips along the way… Continue reading

Review: Zhenzi Shapewear

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Zhenzi Shapewear Slip from Navabi

Sometimes when I’m wearing a figure hugging dress, I want to be able to smooth out my silhouette a bit so you can’t see my underwear or bra line. My usual reaction to shapewear is “nope, GTFO”, because it’s not necessary and I’m not gonna be uncomfortable just so you can’t see a bit of chub, but I spied this slip from Danish brand Zhenzi on the Navabi website and I’ve never tried shapewear in a slip form so I figured it was worth trying out. Think of me as your fashion guinea pig. Continue reading

Snuggly roll neck sweater
