As a young adult, I wasn’t much into wearing skirts and dresses. And to be honest, even now I’m still a jeans and tank top kind of girl, but I do have an array of dresses and skirts in my wardrobe that I like to pull out from time to time.
My skirt and dress collection is growing much more rapidly now than anything else in my closet. I feel feminine and pretty when wearing a skirt or dress, and what woman doesn’t want to feel those things?
Yesterday was no different as I pranced around in my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt from Society+. I have to admit after I put my outfit together, I felt a bit like a 1950’s housewife, with the flowy skirt placed higher on my waist and the bulky yellow necklace, but I had a “pretty in polka dots” vibe going on and nothing was going to ruin it.
My son had soccer practice yesterday and typically I wear my usual yoga pants and tank top of some sort, or in other words, my mom-wear. I needed a change, even if just for the day, and as we walked from the car to the pier where his practice takes place, I noticed I was getting many more stares than I ever noticed before. I realized I wasn’t blending in anymore, but rather, I was standing out and in a good way.
To all of my plus size ladies who are reading this – you do not have to hide. Get out of those dark, black clothes and let yourself shine. Whether you stand out with polka dots or want to flaunt your curves in a bright pink skirt, or even a tutu (all of which Society+ has), don’t be afraid to be you. This just so happens to be one of the things I love about Society+.
Society+ offers the young, fun, and vibrant clothing women want, but that plus size women can never find in a regular store. And not only that, but the company is devoted to diversity, in size and everything else.
When you shop Society+ you will only find real plus size women, modeling real plus size clothes. Not an average woman modeling the same piece that’s supposed to work on a plus size woman. Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m not average. I am above average and have always strived to be in everything I do. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!
As for this Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt, I love that I can wrangle my kids and look good doing it. The little one made a run for it across the grass at the pier, but there are no steps at the end. In fear that she’d run clear off the edge onto the walkway, I had to chase her and snatch her up before she had that chance. As you can see both kids thought it was pretty funny. There’s something fun about wearing a flowy, non-restricting, and twirl-worthy skirt to play with your kids.
The only thing I dislike about the skirt is that it’s a little large, but that’s no fault of Society+. I am a size 18/20 in literally every other brand and I measured myself before ordering. But after getting my new skirt I think it’s safe to say I can comfortably size down to a 14/16 and that’s what I should have done with this skirt. It has an elastic waistband, which is comfortable in itself, but as I walked around it inched its way down a little bit and I found myself adjusting it quite often.
Other than that, my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Dress is a great addition to my wardrobe and I can’t wait to style it a different way!
