One of my biggest dilemmas every summer is trying to come up with office-friendly clothing to wear when it’s almost 100 degrees outside. Although I work in a very casual office environment, I don’t want to look like I’m on my way to the beach in my Monday morning meetings. Personally, pieces that I can wear to work or play that are easy to wear and go are my jam. One item that meets these requirements are midi skirts.
Midi skirts are clutch, because they can easily be styled for any occasion. I already a classic black midi skirt and feel like I wear it at least once a week, because it’s so comfy and so easy to wear. Therefore, I feel I need to add at least one or 30 more to my life and hopefully you do, too. I have found us some options to step our midi skirt game up for the summer.
I’ve been some form of “plus-size” all my life. However, a few years ago, I finally learned to move more. I even had a trainer for awhile. Although I still don’t workout as much as I should, but I’ve worked out more in the past few years more than I did in the previous 30. Sad. What’s even sadder than that were the plus size workout clothes. They were usually boring, unexciting, and ill fitting. Pretty much dull sweat suits and black spandex pants. Boring. Thankfully, times have changed and now you can actually cute plus size athletic wear.
When the weather starts getting a little warmer and inviting, my desire to get out and get moving increases. Although I wish I had this desire all the time, it’s been intense this year. So, I’ve shopping for new athletic gear that I can wear comfortable and look cute while I attempt to melt some weight off. During this process, I’ve discovered some brands that make some pretty stylish and accessible workout clothing in plus sizes. When I say “stylish”, I mean really stylish!
Since it has been cold, I’ve been living in oversize graphic sweatshirts. The comfier, the better. At this point, I have so many that I 3 I could wear for each day of the week. On chilly day, I opted for a oversized sweatshirt instead of a hoodie. For me, hoodies seem a little too casual. Whereas, with the right sweatshirt, you can style to fit any vibe you want.
Although I have more than enough graphic sweatshirts, I might be able to squeeze in a few more. Here are the current ones that I’m crushing on. 🙂

Let’s chat about pleated midi skirts for a minute to day, because they are probably the one thing that your closet is missing (mine, too). They are flirty due to the desire to twirl in them all day, but sophisticated thanks to the below the knee and timeless silhouette. However, I’m obsessed with the look of metallic pleated midi skirts. Metallic pleated midi skirts add an unexpected vibe to your wardrobe. Plus, they would make a great alternative to your favorite LBD during any upcoming holiday gatherings or parties. Just putting it out there.
