Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week and I wish you guys an awesome one weekend. For this week and next week I will be showing my take and then my mother’s take on a black and white plus size outfit.  I think this will be a fun way for me to show you guys how my mother and I differ in our style.

With this outfit,  I wanted to do something that was both comfortable but cute. I have had this black and white poncho for years. I wear it every year when the weather dips below 50 degrees down here.   It’s just so warm, and I love the fringe at the end. I’m a huge fan of the sort of Artec print.  It really makes it the centerpiece of this outfit.

Underneath the shawl, I went with a simple plus size black turtle kneck I bought at Target.  Next, I paired it with just one of the many pairs of black leggings I own.  Then, I put on my old black knee-length Classique boots from Blair that I bought ten years ago. The thing about those boots is that they are wide calf and they have latest so long in my wardrobe when other boots I have bought have basically broken down in less than a year.

Anyway, The thing about wearing all black, it really gives me a streamlined silhouette and really makes me look a bit thinner which I absolutely love. It makes me feel sexy even though I’m covered from head to toe.

Finally, I decided to add some pop of color with my scarlet short bob wig.  It’s the same wig my mom will wear in Part II of this series and then the very last item is this very cute leather maroon handbag that I bought second hand at the thrift store.


This is my plus size black and white outfit. Stay tuned next week when I show my mother’s take on this outfit. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know down in the comments!
