WIWT: Plus size fashion for a windy autumn day

Meagan Kerr plus size fashion autumn
I just spent an amazing weekend in Wellington (which is the capital city of New Zealand, for all of my overseas readers who don’t know much about the country I live in), where I got to celebrate plus size fashion, meet some great new people, catch up with old friends, eat delicious food, attend Wellington Fashion Week and photograph some gorgeous women for my Fat Girls Shouldn’t Wear Stripes project. More about that later though – first I wanted to share this outfit with you because I am so in love with this skirt!

I just don’t even know what’s going on right now. So excited I just can’t even…

So, we all know I’m not really friends with patterns, right. But then this skirt happened. It’s the Sweet Ride Print Skirt from their latest collection, and it’s divine! I love the colours, the print, the cut, the fabric … and the fact that it has pockets. That’s right, pockets.

Oh, and I found some ducks.

Oh, and I found some ducks.

It was pretty windy in Wellington (as per its reputation), so multiple layers were required. I left my hotel for breakfast wearing three layers and actually had to go back and put more on… Even though you can’t see most of them, here I’m wearing: a tank top, a tee, a cardigan, a coat, gloves, a scarf, a hat, super thick tights (I will have a post about tights/stockings coming up for you shortly), a skirt, socks and boots. Yep, all about the layers…

    Hi Meagan – you look beautiful, gorgeous skirt! I headed over to 17 Sundays for a nosy (way too dangerous haha) and wondered how you found the sizing compared to ASOS Curve or City Chic? Thanks so much x

      Thanks Carie! I find 17 Sundays to be a bit more generous with some pieces than ASOS Curve or City Chic. x

      Hi Holly! So glad to hear that! A lot of 17 Sundays stuff is quite generous – if you let me know what you’re looking at I can let you know if I’ve tried it on and how it fits! xo
