Yours clothing - summer picks

Lately I've been coming to terms with the fact that I can no longer wear jeans and jumpers. Despite the fact that summer doesn't really happen here in the UK, the weather has been quite humid lately and the bbq's are starting to happen. Given that we are due for a week of sunshine and a mini heat wave this coming week - I thought it appropriate to compile a list of my fashion picks for the 'summer' from one of my favourite plus size clothing retailers - Yours Clothing (size 14-32). Unlike many of the other online plus size retailers, I find yours clothing to be affordable and basically the same as high street prices - if not cheaper! Here are a few of my favourite things that I've added to my basket ready for some upcoming bbq's, garden parties and get-togethers.

Dress wise, I think a maxi dress is a summer essential, and although I tend to wear them on holiday mainly - I feel like I would be comfortable wearing this navy and coral maxi to a BBQ of some kind as it's not too in your face & I love the fact that it isn't strapless. I also adore this pretty ivory patterned dress with lattice detailing on the neckline, this would look lovely with a tan and is ideal for a get together with the girls. If like me, you are a little self-conscious of your arms then that's okay - as I've spotted a couple of lovely dainty cover ups like this white one which will basically go with anything & isn't going to add any warmth! Of course, I can't last through the summer months without my trusty linen trousers - I actually already have these, but I'm going to buy another pair as I've had mine quite a while now and they've started to bobble slightly. I couldn't resist the ombre dip hem shirt - it's a beautiful colour (also comes in coral) and just screams summer - I seriously love a bit om ombre, how cliche. For bag's and shoes I tend to go for comfort and ease, so I usually take a small over the shoulder bag just to throw in my phone, keys and lippy (bbq essential haha). I'm definitely a flats/pumps girl when it comes to shoes, so I fell in love with these white studded sandals which have a teenie tiny wedge! 



  1. Nice pick ;)
    I would like to invite you to join my giveaway and win a pair of glasses from Visit me soon! :)

  2. Oohh....How did I not know these existed? I love so many high street shops but I just don't fit in anything. Due to this I practically own zilsch clothes, 0, nadder, nothing!

    I may have to wait until payday but thank you for enlightening me here!
