OOTD: Nautical Sunday

Hello my Fab Sista's
Last Sunday I came across Palesa's Outfit on Instagram and instantly fell inlove. I instantly challenged myself to replicate her look. I even left a comment on her IG that I'll give it a go.
On Monday when going to work the weather was cold and raining so I managed to replicate this outfit as I was eager to try it out but could only take pictures inside my office. At the end of the day, I was unsatisfied with the quality of my pictures and the dress I wore was a bit longer - my goal was really not achieved on this day.
I told myself I am not resting until I get this challenge right. Today, I think I got it right even though I am not wearing big blocked striped dress same as hers - for me: this is MISSION ACCOMPLISHED kinda moment :)
The message I am trying to relay on this post is that all of us need to be inspired by each other, NO MATTER THE SIZE. Plus Size ladies need to stop being negative and bitter when seeing a normally sized individual killing it on the streets instead lets be inspired to try things out and see how far we can go challenging ourselves to getting closer to the outfit of inspiration. 
The truth is that we can never look the same as the people who inspire us but can look better FOR US because the challenge is for us, by us and about us #nopressurePLEASE :) We are all beautiful!!! 
Palesa looks amazing on this nautically inspired outfit and OFCOZ, so is myself :) I feel satisfied with what I did for this challenge. I got inspired and I brought in my own flavour :)
What do you think???
