Chubby Flesh and Sunshiny Saturdays: Outfit

It’s far too hot to be covered up. 

I’ve decided that I don’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks anymore and I will bare my chubby upper arms, my fat, dimply knees and squidgy back fat, I don’t care anymore. What I have come to realise over the past few weeks during this intense, freak heat wave whilst I’ve been bravely getting down to less and less layers is that no one else seems to give a fuck either!

Over the years it’s mainly been my arms that I’ve had massive issues with, in the past it could have been 30 degrees and I’d still have put a cardigan on in fear that someone may stare at my chubtastic limbs, but I think I’ve finally abolished that fear and I’m now regularly sporting the arms without a care. 

Today however was a new test. I couldn’t find any clean leggings so when I got dressed I had to go bare legged! My legs are pretty much always covered, mainly because leggings are just so comfy and help stop dreaded chub rub but also because like my arms I’ve always been quite conscious of my chubby, dimply knees, why? God knows, I couldn’t tell you other then I suppose it’s another one of those inherent fat girl fears, but I threw on my fave Chubby Cartwheels lace sundress, my new Evans bird print shrug and H&M sandals and off I went, bare legs and not giving a fuck, just like this…

Bird Print Cover Up – Evans
Sandals – H&M
Necklace – Dorothy Perkins

Oh and then I sat in the garden and got the only taste of an outdoor pool I’m gonna be getting anytime soon….

Get that flesh out ladies!

    You look awesome! I love the dress it's so fresh and summery! I bought that jacket last weekend, thinking it would be so good for covering up in with and it's been so hot I haven't worn it yet! Good on you for not baking yourself with shrugs and leggings!

    Bloody good for you! The dress is so pretty and you look lovely in it!

    I've had to say fuck it with the arms thing as it's too hot to be wearing a shrug or anything else over sleeveless tops.

    I won't bare my legs however cos they're too damn white!!!

    Your legs look great to me 🙂
    I've just been out and bought a sleeveless top from Evans, thinking 'you know, I'm 45, and I don't give a **** what people think, so the world is not going to stop if I expose the top of my arms'!!! I went to lunch at a friend's house last week, right in the middle of the hot-hot weather and one of my plus size friends turned up in a long sleeved top and trousers….sweating away… why?? There were four of us, two overweight, two normal weight (both who have struggled), why bother covering yourself in shame? Granted I wasn't going to sit there in a bikini top like one friend did but there is a middle ground!!!!
