Spring essentials, XL edition

I wish I could start this post with the cliché phrase “spring is here” and all that jazz. But folks, I’m afraid spring was here and it’s already almost past us. You know what that means, right? You’d better hurry up and stock on all you spring & summer essentials!, the plus-size e-shop I was telling you all about the other day, has managed to put together all the spring trends a girl with curves will ever need. Take a look:

Stripes are in every season, but this time they’ve arrived with a blast! Moreover, you shouldn’t limit your choices to tops only. Try a striped cardigan, some stripy accessories, and why not, even a pair of striped pants.

Black & White
This is definitely the spring trend that will be going well into summer. The possibilities are endless: Wear a black top with white bottoms for a simple and chic look, try a cute b&w print like floral or polka dots, or combine two trends at once, by doing monochrome stripes.

My personal favourite, ever since it came into style a few seasons back. Just imagine… Red pants worn with a turquoise blouse, a coral top together with a bright blue skirt, a lime yellow pair of capris and a grey t-shirt. Plus, it’s perfect for accessorizing, since it’s simple at its base.

Which one is your favourite?

Oh, and don't forget. If you haven't "liked" XLcloset on Facebook yet, please do. They run the most amazing competitions all the time, like, this one right now where you can win €300 worth of clothes! And if that didn't convince you, I don't know what will!

Βunnies and stripes

It's been a while since my last outfit post. Consider this the epitome of my spring dressing this year: A blousy top, full skirt, ballet flats, a cardi of some sort and the always-there scarf, with a cutesy detail.

Who's afraid of the big bad Crocs?

Yeah, I'm going there.

A while ago, Crocs gave me this pair of Springy ballet flats.

I'm gonna spare you the blah-blah and cut to the chase:

Those little beady things you see in the insoles? They're like a million little masseuses giving you a foot rub. Constantly.

Plus, all my male friends, when asked, they replied something along the lines of "they're not *that* bad afterall" or "they don't look like Crocs at all". Some design-obsessed ones even sang praises for the quirky-yet-functional design.

So there you go. This summer you might bumb into me wearing Crocs. Be gentle.
