When I travel, whether it’s on the transport to get there (ESPECIALLY in that case) or once I reach my final destination and wander around, I like to be constantly dressed in soft and comfortable fabric and clothes.

We hardly ever associate summer heat and ponchos, which are traditionally thick and warm (to be confirmed next September in Peru, haha!). But since last spring, it seems that the light version of this garment is one of the biggest trends for 2016 ! With a more relaxed cut than a traditional button shirt, yet more stylish than the polo or t-shirt, the poncho adds a little Bohemian touch to most outfits, without making it too sporty, but allowing full comfort and ease of movement. The Ashlynn Chiffon Poncho is SWAK Designs’ answer to this year’s trend. READ MORE…Read more

Are you tired of automatically having to wear leggings of bike shorts every time you wear a skirt or a dress, even in the scorching summer heat? Is inner thigh chafing (a.k.a. “kissing thighs”) your worst nightmare? Because it’s definitely one of mine, especially when it comes to travel, as I’m usually very active and I walk around a lot to get the maximum out of every trip abroad! READ MORE…Read more
Montreal recently held it’s very first plus-size fashion week under the name Montreal + Fashion Week (a.k.a. MTLplusFW) during the May 20-22 weekend.
Though fashion is a topic I hardly mention on this blog, I have to command the very inclusive nature of the event, and not necessarily because I was a guest speaker at the event (click here to find out more about “Pack Small-Think Big!”), but because the event also explored not only plus-size fashion and different aspects of well-being for plus-size women.
