Get used to seeing stripes because I may be sporting different kinds of stripes in my next couple of blog posts! Yes, I have been obsessed with florals lately, but I am ready to branch out and try some more patterns that I may have neglected in the past. This summer, I have really turned up my approach to fashion quite a few notches. I'm pushing my own boundaries—and the ones people place around curvy women. And this Cabin Cruiser Striped set from Fashion Nova REALLY challenged me.


Not only did the set include a bralet as a top, but the pants have the widest leg I have ever seen. These styles are two things I would usually avoid at all costs before I made a little commitment to myself to try EVERYTHING. I put on the outfit, and to be honest, I wasn't in love at first sight. In fact, I had to wear the outfit a couple of times around the house until I felt comfortable enough to wear it out. This outfit was a huge risk for me, however, I loved the way I felt in it when I finally wore it. Sure, the pants may make my thighs look bigger than they are, but I still felt sexy in all of the extra fabric! The slit down the middle of the wide leg definitely highlighted my legs and thighs even in the loose-fitted pants. Good call Fashion Nova!

What are your thoughts on stripes? Do you rock them or avoid them?

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 3X in this Cabin Cruiser Striped set, which is one size larger than my usual size. The top was pretty tight, and I only wear a 40C. The pants were really big and I could have probably ordered a 1X or 2X, but then the top would have been far too small. Oh well, this is still a great look, in my opinion!
