That Kind of Beautiful

It's Wednesday, my favorite day of the week in the blogging world!  I started  'Beautiful Just The Way I Am' a few weeks ago to create a place for all the plus size/curvy/little more to love gals to show their cute clothes and their confidence.

Well, I thought of a better name.  Sorry to confuse those who have participated the last two weeks, but I absolutely have to change that darn name.  This weekly celebration of body acceptance and fashion will now be known as

That Kind Of Beautiful.

Next week, I'll have a banner and a button to grab.  Yep, I'm getting all fancy.

Are you a curvy girl wanting to show off an outfit or a picture that shows that you are beautiful just the way you are? Maybe you're not plus size, but you believe that beauty comes in all sorts of packages and you would like to show your support.  Well,  link up with me at the bottom of this post and let's spread the love around. Did that sound dirty?

It has been so hot around here lately!  I think most of these pictures feature a good amount of my sweat, which is what I get for being full of myself and dragging my husband around to take pictures in hopefully interesting places. 

Be gentle with me, it's still hard for me to be brave and try to do something different. Gulp.

All I can think is, "Armpit!"  Now you're all thinking the same, aren't you?

Blouse- Ross
Shorts- Old Navy Plus
Belt- Forever 21 Plus
Necklace- Target
Wedges-Old Navy

I told you it was hot! Ha-ha.  Please don't laugh!

Top, Denim Skirt and Belt- Target
Sandals, Necklace and Bracelet- Forever 21

Now that you've seen my pictures, you know that I'm not afraid to put myself out there. You shouldn't be, either!  What I Wore Wednesdays at the Pleated Poppy have been such a positive force in my life, and I would love to see other women changed by accepting and celebrating their beauty (and their cute clothes), whatever their shape and size.

Link up to a picture of your favorite outfit or whatever makes you feel beautiful.  Please include a link back to thatkindofmom.com on your post.


  1. I love the outfits. I can't wait to be making a trip across the border to do some shopping because my choices up in Toronto are limited. I love the ruffled top you're wearing.

  2. Hi Laura - I just stumbled upon your blog from The Pleated Poppy. I'll be linking up with you next week for your That Kind of Beautiful post. I'm fairly new to this fashion blogging so I'm usually a day late and a dollar short but I'm catching up! I love your outfits, especially the second one - pink is your color, and I love the ruffles!

    I'm not brave enough to take outside pics though - TOO HOT! It kind of gives your that sultry look though!

  3. Thanks, ladies!! It's not always easy to put myself out there, but it's so great to get positive feedback about my outfits!

    Shayla- I would love for you to link up next week, thanks so much! And I'm new to the fashion blogging thing, too. Just kinda learning as I'm going!


Comments make me happy.

Thank you.
