We’re patiently… Err… Impatiently waiting for Spring to act like spring here in a Montreal. It snowed over Easter weekend, and again yesterday, but the sun has been coming out to play here and there, so there’s still hope, I hope…?
Over the course of the next couple of weeks I’ll be taking advantage of this long lost sunshine (when it chooses show itself) to bring you some refreshing Spring looks from SexyPlus Clothing, a Mississauga, Ontario based business, run by the fabulous Stefanie Auguteijn, who is just an absolute dollface!!!
And while springtime is all about sprouting flowers, baby bunnies & (awww, baby bunniiiiiiieees!!!) & such, here in the land of Easter snow, one of the surest signs of Spring is when we finally (ugh, and I mean fi-na-lyyy) ditch our winter coats in lieu of a cozy hoodie.
Like, I’m totally obsessed. I’ve been wearing it all week!!! A great hoodie is the most underrated piece that just about everyone owns, but rarely celebrates; but I’m telling y’all, there is just so much to be excited about as a plus size woman, wearing her body positivity on her sleeve (literally) and flaunting her sexy, self-confidence with pride!
I paired it with my fave Parasuco jeans, and since I was kinda feeling myself that day (ok, like a lot feeling myself), I decided to rock some serious bling!
How cute do my chain anklets from Ready to Stare look with my Coach, canvas slip ons?
So get into spring, loves! Whether it’s actually sprung in your corner of the world, or still a little confused, like in mine. This is the season to get your sexy on, and where better to start, than at SexyPlus!!!

I have very fair, pinkish, freckled skin and reddish brown eyes; and red can be a tricky color for me to wear. I tend to look better in more orangey (somehow that word doesn’t look right) toned reds rather than blue toned reds. The warmth of the orange warms up my skin tone and balances its natural cool undertones. The reality is though, there is so much conflicting information out there on skin tone do’s and don’ts, that it just comes down to what you feel works on you; and I really think this red compliments my complexion, whether it is “supposed to” or not. Ha!
The peasant style of this blouse from Addition Elle is so much fun. I just love the color and the way it drapes on my body. I’ve put my hair in a simple, messy side braid and paired the look with a great pair of jeans by Buffalo, cute tan flats and some amazing wood and metal jewelry for a relaxed, stylish look that packs a bright red punch!
