Fashion really isn’t something that I follow at the moment. Being a lot bigger than I have been before, with plans to change that, I don’t see the point in investing loads of money on pretty clothes that won’t fit me in a few months time. Unfortunately that doesn’t help when the weather in the UK decides to heat right up, and the only summer clothes I seem to be able to find in my wardrobe that fit, are ridiculously short. JD Williams kindly offered to sort me out with a new outfit so I chose the most flattering maxi dress I could find, and sandals that wouldn’t break my feet. It is actually a harder feat than you would think.
With temperatures reaching 30 degrees here last week, I was determined to find something floaty, light and summery that would help keep me cool, and this Ivory Tie Front Dress fit the bill perfectly. It is a true size, and being between sizes it was slightly big on me, but not in a way that is unflattering. Its loose and floaty design means I can totally get away with it being a little bigger. It is also a great length and I regularly struggle with long dresses in bigger sizes. Just because I am bigger doesn’t mean I am also taller!
The lace detail around the bottom is not only pretty, it also allows a bit of air to circulate keeping me cooler for longer. It is currently on sale and just £36.
I haven’t worn Clarks shoes since school but, as I get older, I am more and more sold by their wider fit and comfier soles than ever before. These pretty tan leather wedges have a t bar, helping them stay on my feet without slipping off, and a grooved sole making them much more stable when walking. They have a cushioned sole for added comfort yet still look pretty with the patterned wedge and heel. They are beautifully made and well worth the £57 they cost. I will definitely be investing in some more, if only for the comfort factor. They will style up so well in Thailand and will go with most of the summer wardrobe I own.
Do you have any recommendations for ‘in between’ size fashion?
