Hey everyone! Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!
I resisted nude for the past couple of days but couldn't help myself today! I found this skirt at the back of my closet and never had any intentions on wearing it before, infact the tags were still on until today! Horizontal stripes, bad fitting, makes me look even bigger than I am, etc. I wore it anyways and honestly it wasn't that bad. It did make my bottom half look a lot bigger than it is.. maybe I should care, but I don't.
I also wore this jacket which was also abandoned until today. It was definitely not made for a bigger girl, but I couldn't resist it in store because the nude and black worked so perfectly together.
I have a really bad habit of buying things because they're cute but don't flatter my figure. I do try to wear flattering clothes as often as possible but sometimes there's just that one thing that is too cute to pass up even though it makes you look ridiculous!

Excuse my ridiculous poses! I always feel so awkward in front of the camera. I'm so used to being behind it and telling other people what to do, yet i'm useless when it comes to taking my own pictures!
This outfit is proof that plus sized girls can shop in straight sized stores. You just need to spend time trying things on and know what material and cuts will fit you. The top is a size UK 14, the jacket and skirt are both size UK 16, i'm a UK 18! Don't completely rule out shopping at "regular" stores!
Ps. I made a formspring.me account incase any of you want to ask me questions anonymously. It's rather silly because you are all welcome to ask me questions using your name and I wouldn't mind, but anyhow! I was beginning to feel like one of the only bloggers who hadn't signed up there. Click here for my formspring page to ask a question!
Pps. I'll announce the winner of my giveaway soon! Thanks to everyone who entered! As promised I will have another little giveaway when I reach 200 followers to give something back to my readers. It means so much that you all enjoy my blog!
