Some say plus size ladies should not wear white. But me? I say plus size ladies should wear whatever they want. There is so much nonsense in fashion rules. Especially if they are related to body shaming and beauty standards. Truth is, you don’t need to please anyone but yourself. And here that’s exactly what I am doing. Besides, who doesn’t love a white dress in the summer?
The Norwegian national day – 17th of may – is approaching and I can already see all the frenesi that surrounds Norwegians by this time of the year. Everybody wants to celebrate the constitution day in style, with friends and family. It is a whole day celebration, starting with the kid parade – which is the main highlight of the day – following by adults party where you drink, eat amazing food and mingle all day long. All you want is to have a beautiful dressed up outfit that allows you plenty of comfort and style.
For a Brazilian living in Oslo, this is an emotional day since we don’t see this patriotism on such a large scale in my country. It is really touching to see people waving the Norwegian flag with so much pride and love.
To make my outfit special and still affordable, I went to Lindex and picked two dresses that may inspire you, yes you, that are still in doubt on what to wear. Thankfully they have larger sizes at Lindex and cute dresses available. Here are my two choices:
This dress is amazingly beautiful, delicate and elegant. You can get it here:
I heard several times some people say they don’t wear white cause the colour make us look bigger. I mean, this is so not true. First of all, what makes us look bigger is the food we eat. Secondly, white is a great colour, especially for a daytime party dress. I love white and gold with some colourful small details.
This bright red will light up the day. The dress has a plissè skirt that makes the flow light and sweet. Is fits all body types and looks good with a small detail like a metalic belt.
What about you? What would you wear in a day like this?

This patched army green dress is one of the most trendy yet classic pieces of the season. You can wear it in so many ways. It is one gem to keep in the closet. Fabric, fit, design, I love all about it. Check it out and get the look here!
I have a real love for versatile clothes. The ones you can dress up and dress down, that you can create several styles with and mostly, fit all body types. And a tunic dress delivers! I got a new one and there are already some plans for it. Let me tell you.
Zizzi’s summer collection is available in stores and online now and I must say; it will be hard to pick just a few styles.
The pieces I have seen so far are more colorful than usual, with cool prints and good fit. I’ve been to one of Zizzi shops in Oslo and picked the styles I liked better and were available in my size. Yes, people are going for the coolest pieces so, girl, you better run!
