Plus Size OOTD – White & Blue Denim

Plus size outfit of the day

Plus size outfit of the day

One of my favorite trends from this spring and summer has got to be the pairing of white and blue denim. Something about it screams cool. It’s the vacation look you can wear for a staycation.

For reference I am wearing either a size 2 or 20 in all the clothing. My measurements are bust: 49″ waist:42″ hips:56″ And I wear a 40DDD bra. I always try to share my personal measurements and sizing because I want to help you better assess what size you need.

The jeans came from Lovesick (Torrid’s Sister Company) before they closed up this past spring. With the exception of them being a little longer than the average Torrid Jegging, I would say the look, fit, and feel are all the same. Just because of the length, the fit is better for me personally with Torrid. So if you want something that is essentially the same, take a look at White Wash Torrid JeggingPlus size White and Blue Denim outfit.

The cami is Torrid’s Foxi Cami in the navy blue color. If they are out of your size or you don’t like the color, they have lots of other colors that would work well with this look, and they are constantly adding new colors each season. And if this style isn’t for you, they also have other styles of camis that you might like better.

The jacket was also from Torrid, however they do not currently have it in stock. It was their Embroidered Gauze Jacket. It’s always possible they would bring it back with enough request, or some of your local stores might still have them in stock.

Here are some alternate options that you might consider to go with this look in place of the jacket:

I wanted to give you some close up looks of the accessories for this look because I feel like they are really what pull this look together.

Denim Blue Livin' Dream Catch Me Sandal

These are Denim Blue Livin’ Dream Catch Me Sandal from Skechers. They are sold out on Skechers’ website. One seller on Amazon still has them in size 10. If that is your size and you want them, you can find those here. However, since 10’s aren’t going to fit everyone, I also found these awesome denim booties from BOBs, Sketchers other line, that would work amazingly with this look. You can find those here.

Denim and white tassel necklace

This is a denim tassel necklace I picked up at TJ Maxx back in the spring. There is no name brand tag on it, so I don’t have a brand or website to steer you towards to get this necklace. I did find a couple of necklaces on Amazon that had a similar look or feel to the. Check out the Boho Layer Tassel Necklace Denim Blues and the Long Tassel Wax Chain Turquoise and Denim Boho Tribal Choker Necklace.

Guess denim barrel bag

Though this wasn’t in the pictures above, this is the handbag that I have to go with this look. It is a Diego Multi-Denim Domed Satchel from Guess. I have had this for a while. The whole line is gone at Guess now, and I couldn’t find this exact purse for you, but I found almost the whole collection for you to check out on Amazon.

Spring trends I love!

Each season I see one or two trends that I love, but this spring/summer is full of things I am stuck on. Once warm weather hits I practically live in dresses. So I thought I would share a couple of my favorites in each trend. And I am hoping that at least one or two of these items end up in my closet.


Bright Bold Colors


I am all about color. I have never been one to have a closet full of neutrals. So the fact that this spring and summers fashions are filled with bright bold colors makes me so happy.


The Avenue’s Abstract Stripe Maxi Dress

I love this abstract print and the addition of the bold colors. You can find it at the Avenue in sizes 14W – 32W.



Simply Be’s Rippled Textured T Shirt Dress

 In one of my favorite colors, I absolutely love this t shirt dress. The design is simplistic enough to let the color be the statement. You can find it at Simply Be in sizes 8 to 28.

Soft Muted Colors


On the almost opposite end of the spectrum this spring is bringing soft muted colors as one of the trends.  While this isn’t my usual taste I have seen some absolutely gorgeous items that I would love to give a try. Unfortunately there isn’t as many choices in plus sizes as there are in misses, but the few choices we do have lovely.


Mod Cloth's White Haute Cocoa Dress

Mod Cloth’s White Haute Cocoa Dress

 I can’t help but love this ultra feminine dress. It makes me dream of days with the girls having tea at our favorite tea house. You can find it at Mod Cloth. It is currently available in sizes 2X – 4X.

Forever 21's Romantic Lace-Trimmed Dress

Forever 21’s Romantic Lace-Trimmed Dress

 Another super feminine dress, and this one won’t break the bank. I love the lace ruffle at the hem. Sometimes it just the small details that make an item. You can find it at Forever 21 in sizes XL – 3X.

Black & White Contrast


It has been in style for the last couple of years. And in my opinion the selection and print choices are just getting better and better. I have to add at least one more piece to my wardrobe.


City Chic's Lace-Up Stripe Sleeveless Dress

City Chic’s Lace-Up Stripe Sleeveless Dress

This is probably one of the most unique pieces I have seen in a black and white print. I love the solid at the waist, and the way its made to look like it almost fades into the stripes. You can find this City Chic dress at Nordstrom in sizes 14W – 24W

So what do you think of my picks for spring and summer’s trends? Did I miss your favorite? I want to hear from you.
