It’s Fourth of July weekend here in the US, and I am in my element. Sunshine, lakes, and BBQ are always going to make me feel at home. The Summer months are hot, and humid, and everyone’s attitude around what we “should” wear seems to relax a bit. I can wear my swimsuit next to everyone else in the 100 degree heat and nobody questions why I would want my midriff exposed. It’s hot as hell, everyone wants as little clothes on as possible.

No matter how you’re celebrating (or not celebrating) this weekend, there are lots of cute and casual plus size Summer outfits. Keep reading to see the outfits I put together for the holiday, and don’t forget your sunscreen!

If you’re anything like me, your goal at any BBQ is to eat as much as possible, and run around with little kids. That’s all I want… food and baby time. When I’m headed to any event where I’ll be participating in activities, or picnic-ing and sitting on the ground, I’m always sure to wear jeans. I love my dresses, but I cannot have my legs eaten alive while trying to have a good time. The two just don’t go hand in hand for me. And all that BBQ I’m planning on eating? Well, I’m not going to have any problems being constricted in this crop top. Loose, flowy, and able to stretch. That’s what I’m going for!

As soon as the sun goes down, I’m ready to get a little more glam. I don’t go all out when it’s this hot outside, so a great dress from Gwynnie Bee is perfect. Again, the emphasis is on comfort and being able to have the best time possible with the littlest thought into whether or not my outfit is going to hold me back. A big tote bag to carry bottles of water, and closed toed booties for running as fast as possible away from anything I happen to be lighting on fire, is essential.

My perfect all-day outfit is a mid length dress, with a hat. No sleeves, no shoes, and the dress is long enough that I can get up and down and run around without baring the booty (unless I choose to of course). Adding a red lip to this simple look can help make any plus size outfit stand out. I love the casual look of a ball cap, and you don’t have to worry about how sweaty or frizzy your hair gets. Just throw it under the hat, and you’re good to go!

What are your plans for the weekend? Are you celebrating the Fourth of July by lighting fireworks, or are you staying inside where it’s nice and cool and quiet? What’s your go-to plus size Summer outfit?

    Happy 4th 🙂 I had a little beach time this morning, I kept it short as it’s my first time out in the sun this year. And now I’m home in the ac to catch up on some work…then will head out later with the dog for a little sunset walk.

    I love LOVE fireworks but around here it’s such a hassle to get to them, traffic and parking and walking and crowds…I’m just not feeling up to that alone.

    I just have to say to you, hopefully without sounding too fan girlish (ha, I’m old enough to be your mother. and then some) or creepish (ha), but I hope you know how truly beautiful you are. I watch your YT vlogs more than I visit your website, but when I end up coming here and see still photos of you, they really capture your beauty. And with the red lipstick? Like an effing MOVIE STAR.

    Okay, I just crossed the creepster line, ha. But seriously. Just wanted to say that.

    I love all the looks but I especially love that striped dress… So cute on you!

    Soooo… There is a Rainbow five minutes from my work, and I haven’t ever gone inside, but I had like an hour to kill today and when I drove past it I thought “hey that’s the store Corissa is always raving about” so I figured I’d go inside, and I came out with a pair of pants, a top, and a romper for eighteen dollars. EIGHTEEN DOLLARS!! And, even though I’m a straight sized girl myself, I was so happy when I walked in and I saw that literally HALF of the store was dedicated to plus sizes, and they had a ton of stuff on sale in both straight and plus sizes… I think I’ve found my new favorite store!!! 🙂 🙂

    Red dress was great. If you’re ever up in Canada (West Coast), you might want to check out Bodacious. I don’t work there, but have long been a fan. Very body-positive, with stores in Vancouver and Victoria.
