Curvy Girl's OOTD- Casual Office

Aloha Bloggerinos,

After all the super duper positive feedback on my BBQ OOTD, I have done an Office BBQ for your (hopefully) enjoyment.

My office is pretty restrictive on colours- you can only wear black, white, cream, red or blue and it has to be smart, so this was probably stretching it a bit smart-wise. Oh well.


So lets go from top to toe.
Navy Cardigan- Newlook Menswear (yes, I stole it off Mattmoo-naughty me)
Black Vest- F+F at Tesco. Size 16.
Cream Zip/Pocket Skirt- River Island. Size 18 (but wish I'd bought a 16 because it is TRES stretchy!)
Light Gold Ruffle Pumps- Primark. Size 7

Here is a close up of the skirt because I feel this was the "feature" of today's outfit.



It had an elasticated waist band, cutsie pockets deep enough for hands and a pretty lacey overlay. I usually just stick to tops and accessories in River Island because I am bottom heavy, but they have a lot of stretchy skirts in there at the moment which I am slowly but surely stocking up on!

I like this skirt because although it sits on my hips which is my widest part, it flares out a bit to hide any thigh wobble (urgh) and creates a girlie summery look.

The boy cardi balances it all out a tad and the navy against the black (yes I know you aren't meant to do that but you aren't meant to have prawn crackers for dinner and I just did that too!) adds a bit of interest and a softer look from lots of black.

I promised one of you (I think Bella Sugar) that I would try and do 'intersting poses' so here is my action shot. Good grief.


So there you are Bloggerinos, size 16-18 and wearing cream on the bottom half, clashing black with navy and wizzing a frisby. Maybe not groundbreaking, but enough for one day.

More curvy girl OOTD's to come.

Toodlepip!

  13. Bloody gorgeous!! (said in my best yorkshire accent!) Lou you look fantastic. As someone who has gone from a size 22 to an 18 and is still shrinking I think I might have to have a look in river island :)
