|Second Hand Barbour Jacket, Dorothy Perkins - Super Skinny Jeans, |
Next - Western Boots, Essie 'Fiji'
I want to be able to use my blog to share where I find my clothes and inspiration for outfits as I find that a lot of the blogs out there are great, if you're tiny! I'm not. In all of my adult life I've been bigger, having gone from a size 20 down to a size 16, where I am now. People often say that I have good style, but I often don't believe it because I'm busy thinking how much better the outfit would look if I was slim.
I find it so hard a lot of the time to put outfits together because I see things on skinny people and think that I can pull them off!! I must remember to tell myself 'No'. Not in a negative way, as I think it's positive to embrace how you look, but I think it is important to say No and be REALISTIC about your size.
It has taken me a long time to find what suits, and often I don't get it right. But I hope that by sharing what can work on here, those of you out there who are bigger ladies and struggle will feel inspired.
I am loving the chilly weather meaning I can embrace coats, boots and layers. Having just picked up the newest Simple Things, a mug of green tea and rain outside is most certainly making me embrace the autumnal layers.
Super purchase is my early Xmas prezzie from G - my good as new second hand Barbour from Dirty Harry's in Brighton for £100.00!!
