Fat and Fit: Does Exercise Have a Place in the Plus Size/Body Positive Community?

Fat and Fit: Does Exercise Have a Place in the Plus Size/Body Positive Community?

Can you be fat AND fit? The answer is hell yes. One of the biggest misconceptions about plus size women is that we do not work out or stay active. I mean, if you’re fat, that means you just sit on the sofa all day eating chips and ice cream, right? In my experience, this is ridiculously far from the truth.

Sunday Funday in this Avenue Plus Size Sweatshirt

Sunday Funday in this Avenue Plus Size Sweatshirt

Happy Sunday! It’s been a dark and stormy mess in Chicago all weekend, which made me stay in and snuggle into soft knits! But the clouds finally lifted and I was able to venture out onto my porch for my favorite Sunday ritual: Coffee and Magazines! Y’all don’t see me in my casual wear very often, but here’s a glimpse of a favorite plus size sweatshirt from Avenue: the Sunday Funday sweatshirt.

Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

I have a love affair with books, but I’ve been neglecting them lately in favor of podcasts and magazines and TV, of course. But as soon as I stepped foot in the new Eloquii store at The Shops at Northbridge (the Nordstrom Building in downtown Chicag0), and put this look together, I knew I had to get back in the library as quick as possible! I mean, this Conversational Blouse in Mushroom Print and pink Flounce Pencil Skirt gave me all of the librarian style and book lover vibes that I’ve been missing since so many of the bookstores closed years ago!

    Years ago, I tried the Valentina Lace Dress and loved the way it showed off my curves. So when I found out Kiyonna was creating a version of that dress out of VELVET, I knew I had to have it. The Kiyonna Hourglass Lace Dress* with velvet and lace is even more divine and curve-friendly than the original!
