So before we talk about the fact that I am wearing polka dots, yet again, let's discuss Best Friend Friday. My best friend Kristen takes a lot of my pictures for this blog so I decided to turn the camera back on her sometimes to show off her style too as a bonus look of sorts.

We are both plus size but have different body shapes and personal styles so I am hoping this can be a way to showcase additional styles on #StareStyle that may differ from my own. Plus, she's a total babe! 

Kristen usually wears jeans while I wear skirts so this day for us was a total swap. I felt like I was channeling her in my jeans and she was sporting total stare style in this maxi skirt. 
Speaking of friends, I saw this ASOS sheer polka dot top first on my virtual blogger bud Stephanie of Nerd About Town. Sheer AND polka dots with an oversized gender neutral feel is like my dream shirt combination. I knew it was time to bite the bullet and order something from ASOS like every other fat girl who shops online. After I ordered, I also saw it on Sarah from StyleIt (another fave fellow blogger) and I was totally in good company. I love that we all wore the same top and styled it completely different. 
I ordered the size 22 in the top and since it's an oversized cut, I can't really tell if it's too big or too small but I love it either way. Also, I am wearing jeans. I haven't worn jeans in maybe three years. These plus size jeans are Rue21 and they are actually available in an ankle length so I can wear them with flats if I didn't want to roll them up.
