Casual Holiday Outfit from Target

A few days ago on Insta-story, I asked for some plus-size clothing store recommendations and Target was mentioned! I honestly didn't think Target had any fashionable clothes, probably because I never went to the clothing section. Wow, I was definitely wrong and I'm so happy that there are so many plus-size options!

As you guys know, I lost 59 lbs and recently gained most of it back. You can read about it here. I was feeling ugly and I slipped back into thinking that I needed to be thinner to enjoy fashion. I honestly thought that everything I tried on looked horrible and I felt embarrassed for even trying. But I NEED to snap out of this mentality because I know there are other girls out there who are struggling with their body image, and I would never want them to think the way I do. I want everyone to wear whatever the f they want and feel great! So I'm working really hard on looking in the mirror, at these photos of myself, and being okay with what I see.

Okay, back to Target...

I was on a mission to find something casual and cute to wear to a Christmas dinner. I usually never wear red or orange, but I found this sweater (Here) and fell in love with the sleeves. So then I had to find pants to wear with this sweater and I wanted to find something that wasn't black - because I ALWAYS wear black. My biggest struggle right now are finding pants. My stomach is disproportionately larger than my legs so pants are almost impossible to find. But then I came across these plaid/checkered LEGGINGS (Here)... which I totally thought were pants until I felt how stretchy and soft they were. The material is thicker than your traditional leggings and they're incredibly comfortable - I'm in love.

My next search is going to be finding something dressy to wear for New Years Eve - Wish me luck!
