Necklace: F21 | Cardigan, Cat Print Shirt: Old Navy | Dress: OU | Tights: Target | Belt: Thrifted | Flats: Land’s End Canvas

Only a quick little OOTD day. A more appropriate title for this one would be “Donald Duck Style” because really. Definitely channeling some nautical duck vibes from the skirt down.

I was so excited when Kate shared that she was wearing these tights from Target. I see them all the time and always pass by wistfully. Surely the $5 juniors’ tights could never fit me! I’m so used to having tights stretch translucently across my thighs and squeeze my stomach like a sausage–the worst, right? But I thought “Hey, Kate is pretty close to my size! If she can fit comfortably into them, maybe I can, too!” Aaaand an addiction is born. They come in all the best colors! I’m working on the collection now. Just got these white ones last week!

That is what I love about fashion/style bloggers. I can see clothes modeled on a variety of people with different body types and figure out what to get for myself and how to style it! No matter what body type you are, your outfit blog can fill a valuable void for someone else and inspire them.
