Outfut August A Look Back

So August is officially over (where do the months go?!!) so that means that Outfit August has now drawn to a close. I thought I would do a quick re-cap on the outfits that I managed to blog during the month, sadly I only managed twelve outfits in the end.

Looking back at the outfits, I seem to have two very distinct styles which are either pretty dresses or skinny jeans and an oversized top!!

So without much further ado here is my outfit august retrospective!!

Also I think I may just love my Converse seeing how many times they featured last month!!!  

I just want to say a final thank you to the awesome Leah from Just Me Leah for organizing this again this year and for letting me take part as I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I wore during the month!!

PS I should also say that today 1st September marks my 3rd Wedding Anniversary so I just want to say Happy Anniversary to my fabulous husband aka Mr S- I love you to the moon and back xxx

See you all very soon..

Curvissa Autumn Boot Review*

Now I know we are only just getting to the end of August but if you are anything like me then your thoughts may well be turning to autumn/winter, so when the lovely people at Curvissa asked if I would like to join four other  bloggers in reviewing a pair of boots I was very excited to see what they had to offer.

Due to my everyday journey to work being part public transport and part hiking through the city centre when it comes to the colder months I need something to keep my feet warm and me upright (I have tendency to always find the icy patches!!) so with this in mind I made my choice.

I went with these lovely Extra Wide Fitting Boots* which come in two different calf sizes, XL and XXL. I decided to try the XXL and to be fair I could have gotten away with the XL but the extra room means I will be able to comfortably tuck my jeans into them and pop a good pair of boots socks inside if I want to. They have a lovely stretchy panel at the back which means they don't pinch your legs and have lots of give. The soles are sturdy and have lots of grip which is perfect for me as hopefully I shall stay upright all through the winter!!I should also point out that these are Extra Wide (EE) in the foot.

They are a lovely soft leather and don't feel like they need breaking in (there is nothing worse than sore heels from new shoes) so for me these get five stars!

I chose to style them with my Curvissa denim dress as I am rather looking forward to wearing this again when the weather is cooler. I would happily wear them with jeans for a casual weekend look or with a dress for work.

Don't forget voting is still open for the British Plus Size Awards and Curvissa have been nominated for best footwear retailer and they would love your support so please head over and cast your vote!

Outfit August Day Twenty Eight

I know I know I have totally slacked on the blogging front this week as I have been back at work after two weeks off, and I also had a 24 hour bug!! The rain has also been my nemesis this week and everytime I thought  I might do some outfit photos it rained!!

Anyway I finished work a bit earlier today and would you believe the sun put his hat on so I got some photos done!!!

Yours clothing oversized top size 20

Lucky for me we do dress down Friday at my work place so I headed off today in one of my favourite oversized tops and a pair of jeans. I am trying to keep my summer vibes going so I chucked on my old Ipanema flip flops to keep my feet cool.

I think by know must of you know I love a good oversized top and this one from Yours Clothing has been a firm favourite since I bought it last year. They have had some different ones this year which I didn't get round to trying but I feel they are the best retailer when it comes to good jersey oversized tops as they really are properly oversized.

My jeans are my trusty Simply Be Acid wash skinnies which I love as they are super high waisted, I think I really need to buy some more in different colours! The flip flops are really old from New Look and the necklace was a sale purchase from New Look last year!
