My New Obsession: Plus Size Skirts with Pockets

March 24 2014 | CeCe Olisa

My goal of breaking my cardigan addiction continues this week.

I bought this full skirt and it came just in time for the first day of spring last Thursday. This skirt definitely has a vintage feel to it, so my instinct was to pair it with a pink cardigan (which I’ll still do, at some point) but for my first time wearing it, I decided to create a crop top feel with a cable knit sweater.

I was so happy to be in my colorful spring outfit and then I walked into a fashion show and every single person was wearing head to toe black… awkward!

I’ve been scooping up quite a few skirts like this in different colors and patterns, hopefully I’m not replacing my cardigan addiction with an addiction to plus size skirts with pockets!

    Love the outfit! I already added the skirt to my Amazon wish list, can’t wait to get it. Just wondering though, where did you get your boots from, or do you have any suggestions of stores that have similar styles? Recently, I have had a real struggle finding boots that are TRULY wide-calf. I ordered a pair from Forever21+ that were advertised as wide-calf, but when I put them on my bare calf barely fit into them, let alone trying to squeeze a skinny jean or something in it as well. As always, another awesome addition to the blog!

      Hi Shanee! Because the season changed, I’m not seeing too many wide calf boots online right now but when next season rolls around, start with Avenue. They have good boots for truly wide calves and they’re cheap enough to get a few pair! xoxo

    Fantastic!!!!! I always suggest color, because in a sea of black, you stand out. Everyone’s always in black, even a ninety pound gal is in black.
    You look great!!!! In fact I’m going to try to emulate this look.
    Thank you for sharing!!
