Hey you all amazing people!
I hope you all are doing well this summer! I know right, this year the summer seems unable to beat but I guess we’ll do really fine. And it’s been 2 weeks since I’ve written my last blog. Well, as I know you guys have read it, and you know it was a fashion blog about my last autumn; today I’m here, with you all to write about my summer styling.
And as you all can see in my title today, I’ve mentioned “endeavour plus size”, with which I really wanted to put out front my efforts to be a plus size fashion blogger, my goal to achieve, I endeavour to make every person realise that plus size fashion, and all plus size fashion bloggers really take a lot on themselves to write about their styling. And everybody wants appreciation for their works, good works. It’s a struggle people should respect I feel, and if they can’t, least they shouldn’t undermine their efforts and break their confidences. That’s what the struggle with my healthy self is. Yes I’m a plus size and I’m proud. Nobody can bring me lower, ’cause I’d stare at them and show them their place!
Getting ready in the summer seems at least marginally easier than getting ready for winters though, as simply you don’t have to futz with layers or beanies or scarves and covering yourself from the chills! But here’s one thing we probably forgot to notice that, toeing the fine line between staying cool and fashionable in summers and staying well and fit, isn’t always that easy when it’s tremendously hot outside!
Whether you’re getting off to somewhere exotic or going out casually in summer afternoons, under the sun; dressing for the hot weather should remain both effortless and fabulous. Summer is the best time of the year to experiment with your style, as I feel so.
Though my personal favourite season happens to be the springtime, but, there is something about the warm summer months that make me want to dress more feminine and romantic than usual. I’d love to dress up wearing a pretty pastel coloured cotton outfit, be it a dress, a kurti, or a jumpsuit, which can be easily put down in an instant. Or a casual off shoulder top with my favourite pair of Palazzo to style with, and the most comfortable block heels, we can all be ready for any summer adventure.
My ideal summer outfit can be a solid or printed cotton kurti, long or short, which will be light and breathable, ofcourse in a bright vibrant colour to go with the summer sun. I genuinely love floral prints for summer or a bohemian touch, and all feminine hues that show off a summer tan.
When a woman says, ‘I have nothing to wear!’, what she really means is, ‘There’s nothing here for who I’m supposed to be today.” The famous quote from the British writer Caitlin Moran is a feeling most women can relate to, I guess, be they plus size or not. And if your body doesn’t tend to fit clothes manufactured by mainstream brands, well, that feeling can become all too familiar.
I am a fat and healthy woman, who loves fashion and obviously now that, I am a blogger myself, I’m much more enthusiastic about plus size fashion than I was ever before. I care passionately about plus-size fashion. I buy a lot of clothes and try a lot of different looks, but more often than not, my fashion life is spent craving things I can’t have! And why can’t I have it? Because plus size fashion retailers think we plus size people don’t have the right to wear it, or we don’t deserve it. There had been really tough days that I’d spent looking for clothes that’d fit me properly.
You can be fat, you can be a plus size woman, and we too deserve to do fashion as much as others do! There’re no boundaries or so-called stereotypes that we need to break through to prove ourselves and fit into society. People should just accept us the way we are! But we all need to focus on one simple thing. Shout out to all plus size women, never try to outcast yourself. You can do fashion but be sure to do that under some limit. There always remain a few restrictions for us to think about before we step out bold.
So today I’m wearing my most favourite outfit that I’ve styled so far this summer! This amazingly vibrant orange coloured A-line front slit kurti, which I’ve bought from MYNTRA.COM and though black is not really a summer colour, I strictly forbid all my fellow fashionistas to never style yourselves with anything black, as it will suck all energy out of you, unless your favourite colour is black ofcourse! A good laugh on that, ladies!
Yes so I’m wearing a black jeggings to match with the orange and also that my kurti itself is lined with black borders, because of which I thought black was a better contrast for me. I love carrying my backpack absolutely anywhere I go, and I style it with everything! To my amaze, the brilliant tan colour goes with every hue, on fleek! So I added my backpack too as we all need to carry summer essentials when we go out during this burning summer!
- Orange A-line cotton crepe front slit, quarter sleeved, v-neck kurti, from Myntra.
- Black Jeggings, from fbb.
- Black two part block heels, from Club factory.
- Tan bucket backpack, from Amazon.
- Classic black strap watch, from Titan sonata.

I kept the makeover really simple, as it is very troublesome to wear heavy makeup. However we all know there are products which are really light weight, but if you are having oily skin, like I do, then never opt for a heavy makeup during summers. I wore my regular foundation, a bit of contouring and eyeliners. Lipstick is something we wear even if we go out for 2minutes, and so in that context, I never leave a natural nude lip. Today I wore my Kylie velvet lip collection shade, named 22. And I love to leave my hairs on loose because it’s elegant and as I have less hairs, I look better if I leave it open. So that’s about the makeover and beauty.
And the best thing that we all should carry this summer, is our never-ending laughing face, which I can guarantee, will save you from this scorching summer heat! I loved wearing this beautiful kurti and had this amazing blogshoot, by one of my favourite photographer, NILANJAN BASU. He made me look so gorgeous! This colour is definitely mesmerizing itself and I cherished styling myself with a breathable cotton fabric and had an absolutely wonderful time shooting for my blog. Cheers to us, all the plus size fashionistas out there, and a shoutout to all the lovely ladies who are going to keep their cool this summer and style their best!
Here I’ll be ending my blog today. I enjoyed writing for you all once again. And I’ll be back after a few weeks maybe with another dazzling summer statement. I will never forget to mention again and yet again that how much you people love my work and I’m so grateful to you all for all your appreciation and love! So take care you all beautiful people, keep styling, and till then CIAO!
I’ll be leaving some more photos for you all! Here you go.
