In any case! If you're new to the blog, here's the idea behind Marvelous Monday:
"Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!"
There are currently 5 of us participating in the challenges, so make sure to check out the other ladies' looks! I've posted links at the bottom of this entry for your perusal.
This week's theme was "breaking a fashion rule." I think as plus-size bloggers we are certainly bogged down with more "rules" than most. I'm happy to say that, in my opinion, the girls involved with this concept are not afraid to challenge the notion that we're only "allowed" to wear things that make us appear to be thinner. You wear the clothes, not the other way around! Wear what makes you happy, or comfortable, or confident. Or don't! But whatever you do I hope it's because you've made that decision, and not because you've felt forced into it by some silly rules.
I broke two rules with this look-- combining prints and wearing horizontal stripes. :)
floral skinnies, belk. cream striped top and nude flats, old navy.
