Now before I get down to the business of the outfit I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my blog, Twitter and Facebook from my last update. It really helped as I was in quite a dark place when I wrote that post and although I am feeling more chipper I still have a way to go, but all the comments meant the world to me so thank you.
Anyway back to the post in hand, I had the chance to do a sneaky bit of child free shopping at Merry Hill last week and decided to pop into H&M. I went in looking for a striped top but couldn't find one so had a general mooch. Whilst wandering round I accidentally stumbled across the plus size section- I say accidentally as it was hidden in a dark corner under the escalators! Also section is being a bit generous it was actually just three racks jammed full of random clothes! I did grab a few things to try on but none fitted right in fact the sizing was bizarre in that the bigger size of one trousers was smaller than the smaller size!!! It was disappointing especially given the overall size of the store and I really felt like it was their dirty secret section!!
In the end I actually bought a lovely top from the straight size main range as it was oversized and rather generous, I then wore it work on Monday to discover that one of my co-workers had bought the same top!!
Here it is........
I really do this love this top it is quite lightweight and generous enough that I can pop a vest on underneath for an extra layer. It is lovely and soft and will take me through to the warmer weather. I picked this up in a size Large but it does go up to an XL so despite being from the main range it is quite option for us plus size ladies.
I decided top pop on my Sugar and Vice Alien necklace in homage to the wonderful Leonard Nimoy who sadly passed away yesterday-Live long and prosper.
Necklace Sugar and Vice Via Jane as part of my Joyful June gift last year.
