On the way home from Rockhampton today we stopped quickly in Bundaberg for a quick stopover to see Hubby’s Mum. I jumped out of the car, slapped on my new hat and we grabbed some photos for stripes week. I mean, it’s practically a week made just for me. I couldn’t miss it. To have gotten to Monday night and not had a post live yet, well that’s just not cricket!

I have a thing for stripes.

A big fat thing. It’s a love affair. A total love affair. Me and stripes go way back. A week is not complete if I haven’t worn a stripe outfit. Lots or a little. It’s something that draws the most criticism for me on this blog. Big girls, fat girls, curvy girls, chubby girls ARE NOT supposed to wear horizontal stripes. No way, it’s a no no. I hear it over and over again. I ignore it most times. If people are particularly rude sharing their opinion I tell them to butt the heck out, I look fabulous. Pfffft.

I encourage you to do the same.

    The first photo – you remind me of a Cabbage Patch Doll. I think it’s your cheeks and eyes.

    I still have my Cabbage Patch Doll (Emma Angelica) and her birth certificate!!

    Great skirt -love the orange, and with white you look so summery.

    • Haha. I can see that actually. And I agree. It’s the cheeks/eye combo. Maybe the hat too. 😉

      Thank you. I just picked up the shorts in this print I love it so much. Perfect for summer.

  • That skirt is fabulous!! Love the color combination.
