There are two things that happen this time of year; the holidays and stressing about the holidays. This is when most of our greatest fears – college finals, winter concerts, your aunt Geraldine questioning your marital status – come to a head. Don’t get me wrong, there are some awesome things that happen this time of year as well, like eating, and wearing pretty clothes!
Enter Simply Be, like Mrs. Claus carrying her granny purse full of “latest plus size fashion clothing available in sizes 8- 28.” Scouring the site for a dress to finally shut Aunt Geraldine up, I found this adorable Check Lace Smock Dress (which also comes in berry!). The check pattern is always a fall trend and I love the lace detail on the shoulder. It’s a fun play on the cold shoulder style while adding a deconstructed element. Also, the shape of the dress allows me to indulge in all the Thanksgiving dining without having to worry about unzipping my pants while crying into a bowl of dessert watching TMC Holiday classics.
Whether you’re meeting your partners family for the first time, out-shining the moms at your kids recital, or promised your dad you wouldn’t wear pajamas AGAIN this year, run to Simply Be!
