I think the Spring is one of my favorite times of year. It's the season of hope, especially this year after what has felt like a very long and dark winter because of the relentlessness of the global pandemic.
Now that vaccinations are well underway and states are opening up again, we can finally start planning outfits we've been dying to wear all winter!
Loungewear is comfy and perfect for relaxing at home, but what gets us really excited is a beautifully put together outfit that we can show off our style and feel gorgeous in!
Now if you've put on weight during lockdown and are feeling self-conscious, you are not alone. We've heard many of our Instagram community describe feeling low in confidence because of weight gain.
Please don't be hard on yourself! We've been through a once in a generation pandemic, a traumatic global event that has shaken so many of us to the core.
The most important thing you can do right now is to be kind to yourself. Whether you're accepting your bigger curves or you want to lose some weight, the first step to happiness is thinking kind thoughts about your body.
The second step to happiness is treating yourself to some new spring outfits. Maybe in a larger size than before, but so what!
Size is just a number and if you've gone up a dress size, don't think "i don't deserve these new clothes because I've put on weight." - this is literally the time when you need new clothes.
Wearing clothes that fit you properly will make you feel much better and more confident than clothes that are too small, and that's a fact.
So we've turned to three of our favorite plus size influencers, @maya.esthetic , @diana.dares and @kaylaloganblog to show us how they're styling their Dani Marie dresses with a beautiful smile and a big dash of self-confidence.
