The 50s were all about cardigans, full skirts and coordinated looks. I absolutely HAD TO HAVE this Sailor Cardigan, which is sadly already sold out. Isn't it adorable?

I know...I'm such a tease showing you an outfit that's either out of stock or from the back of my closet. But have no fear...there are so many other adorable plus size cardigan options at Voodoo Vixen!

Plus Size Vintage Shirt Dress in Minty Floral

You know I'm obsessed with flirty vintage retro dresses, and I get ridiculously happy when I discover a new source for plus size options! Voodoo Vixen is a British brand with hundreds of amazing vintage dresses, cardigans and skirts in fun, kitschy floral, fruity and flirty prints. And many of them come in plus sizes! I was in heaven to say the least, and I just had to try the Tilly Shirt Dress which comes in a fabulous minty pink floral print!

SO CUTE!!!! The print, the shape, the covered buttons...I felt so flirty and fabulous! I have nothing negative to say...just be sure to order a size up if you are chesty like me. I ordered a 3X and I was nearly busting out!

Plus Size Surfer Girl Essentials from Juno Active

Surfing???? ME????? Really? Yep, I did it. I hauled this bountiful body up onto a surfboard and spent a few hours riding the waves off Waikiki beach in Hawaii this summer. Well...if by "riding" you mean "getting knocked off of the surfboard repeatedly" by waves, then yeah, I totally caught some waves. But you know what? I TOTALLY ROCKED IT and thanks to Juno Active, I looked fierce doing it!


When you're a big girl contemplating an intense water sport like surfing, you need two things: Support and Coverage. I found both of these things in the Juno Active AquaSport Crossback Tank Swimsuit and the AquaSport Mock Neck Rashguard.




The swimsuit has a high neck and fit tightly so that my chest was supported and not all over the place when I was paddling and trying to pop up on the board. The rashguard is essential to protect you from the sun and the horrible rash that can develop when rubbing your skin over the surfboard when you're paddling into the water. And of course, I chose both in the Safari print because I wanted to look and feel fierce out there in the water!


I had an absolute blast even though I couldn't manage to stand up all the way on the surfboard. I'm pretty sure I invented a new sport called "Surf Yoga," since I managed to do some impressive Downward Facing Dogs while out there. I spent most of the time screaming my head off while heading directly for other surfers. But I loved every minute of it!!

If you are considering trying surfing, here are a few Plus Size Surfer Girl Essentials!
