Fashion Friday Plus Sized – the delayed edition



If I’m honest I’m really struggling with clothes at the moment. I never know what to wear. During the Summer holidays at work, I go for comfort so wear my jeans, a t-shirt and hoody for when it’s cooler teamed with a pair of pumps. When the schools are back, I have to wear smart, office clothes so will wear black trousers, a nice top or shirt and either my suit jacket or a cardigan. I would love to wear more formal dresses for work but I’ve yet to find a new plus size dress that is suitable.

For weekends, when we’re out and about shopping, seeing friends and family, I like to make more of an effort so will wear a nice top and a nice pair of jeans or trousers with a nice pair of (flat) shoes.

This is what I wore on Monday as we went shopping to find new kitchen appliances and accessories.

Vest from Asda (years old)
Black bootcut jeans from Next
Jellies from Sun Jellies

I ordered this swing shirt in a size smaller than I would normally and I was really pleased that it fit me. It will fit me even better once I’ve lost a little bit of bingo wing but it’ll be good to see the difference in a couple of weeks or so. These jeans are ones that I bought when Little Mr was born. I was too big for my old (size 18 jeans) but was fed up of wearing maternity jeans and over the last 18 months I have put too much weight on and couldn’t fit in them at all. I was so pleased when I found these out at the weekend and they did up! Roll on the time when they’re too big.

I’m linking up with Kara’s Fashion Friday Plus Sized post, albeit a little late. You can check out Kara’s gorgeous outfit here.
