My Life in the Fat Lane – Wearing an LL Bean Sweater made for Men
Inspiration for the title: Marideth Sisco & Blackberry Winter – Fair and Tender Ladies
Just about the time you think Spring has finally arrived, Mother Nature fools you. Down here in the South, we call this cold snap a Blackberry Winter. What that means basically is that it got around freezing just when the blackberries are blooming. I am kind of glad. It gave The Dane and me one more cozy weekend to share together before a lot of upcoming events – a prom, a festival and a wedding – just to name a few.
During the colder months, The Dane and I often go to the bookstore. We went a few months back and I browsed the magazine section for some light reading. I looked around and saw nothing about plus-size fashion on the racks. We went a few days ago and I looked again. Surprise! Ashley Graham is on no less than three covers (here). I bought a copy of Glamour for the first time since…well, maybe it’s the first one I ever bought. I was surprised by the articles. All were up-beat, positive and full of tips for us plus-size gals. I’m hoping that our local bookstore starts carrying more magazine geared to us. If they do, I might go there more in the summer months.
Because of the chill, I shopped a little in The Dane’s closet. I love this cozy sweater. One of these days, I’m going to have to find one of my own, but for now, I’ll just borrow his. Sweater – LL Bean, Rockstar jeans – Old Navy, and boots from Guess (similar here).
