I was not blessed with the tall gene – I’m only 5ft 3! I tend to drown in maxi dresses. Combine that with being a size 16, I sometimes find it hard to find the right style of clothes that suit my figure.
I tend to live in jeans and leggings (when I can get away with it) but we’ve been trying to eat healthier recently and so I’ve managed to lose a few pounds.
As we are gearing up to head into Autumn, I’ve been having a look at buying some new clothes to add to my wardrobe.
Here are some of my picks from Simply Be.
As I mentioned above, I drown in long dresses so I tend to stick to mid-length ones. I love the look of the Scarlett & Jo ones above. I think they would all work well for work or going out in.
I’m a big fan of tops that cover my mum-tum and can hide my arms too. I really like the look of the ones above as they would go perfectly with jeans or leggings.
For me, Autumn is when I can start wearing boots. I LOVE a nice pair of comfy boots. Whether you’re wearing a skirt, dress or jeans – they literally go with anything! I really like the fact that you can select your calf width for the Sole Diva Chloe Boots because it is something I struggle with when buying boots! The ankle boots would be good for wearing to work and I had to throw a pair of patent pumps for going out in too!
