Fall is SO LATE in coming to Chicago! It’s like the 5th straight day of 90 degree temps and I wouldn’t be sad about that except I have a closet full of fall clothes calling my name! Happily, one of those outfits was a perfect transitional outfit for this temperamental weather! Today’s plus size OOTD features this Ellos Side Knot Dress. It’s light and comfortable, but still has that fall flavor I’m craving!
Memorial Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means…SUMMER IS HERE! Plus size summer style is all about great dresses in adorable prints. And you know I’m a sucker for polka dots…this blue and white polka dot shirtdress from Ellos on Fullbeauty.com is everything that is right about summer style.

This cotton shirtdress is my favorite! No really — I loved it so much in the red stripe (see the post here) that I had to have it in the polka dot too! The full gathered skirt with the nipped in waist and buttons all down the front is so retro–and not to mention flattering! It’s such an easy, chic dress that is appropriate for just about any occasion this summer! Wear it with flats or with a fabulous pair of heels like these Steve Madden red fringe sandals that I found at Macy’s a few months ago!
Perfect for twirling!!!

I put this Ellos Striped Shirtdress on for a quick photo shoot, and no less than 3 people stopped and told me how much they loved it! And this was only about a 5 minute shoot. I loved it when I bought it, but after that reaction, this dress is going into my staple rotation this spring and summer! And why wouldn’t it? It’s adorable! This Ellos Striped Shirtdress from Fullbeauty.com is so classic and feminine and the full skirt is lovely and twirl-tastic!
I usually shy away from chunky knit sweaters…something about them has always had me feeling frumpy whenever I tried one on. However, I’ve been trying to go for more simple, stream-lined outfits lately and thought I’d work with a fashion staple like this one. This Ellos Black Chunky Knit Sweater is from Fullbeauty.com, and I was so surprised when I put it on! It wasn’t frumpy at all. In fact, I felt oh-so-chic! So here are 2 ways that I came up with to wear a chunky knit sweater–one is more classic and the other is funky and fun!
First up… a classic and chic black and white look.
Next, I wanted something a little funky and fun…so I added a sequin skirt, a cat hat and a funky bag!

But if quirky accessories aren’t your thing, this outfit looks good by itself too!
