Wardrobe advice for girls week away

Right ,this is a tricky one for you beauteous and stylish ones.

I have a week away with friends planned.It is mainly just a get together with no kids break(yes we are lucky) .No nights out except to local bistro/pub things .

I am probably the fattest (18) definitely the dumpiest and nearly the oldest of the group.I dont dress very well as I really cant be bothered with all that shopping,trying stuff on etc . So I pick up bits from superstores and charity shops mainly -with brief forays to the wild territory of -ooh -- Matalan for example .

Okay ,I know Im not stylish but heres the thing. Several of the group are very stylish ,slim and well groomed.Although the week is meant to be fun I am slightly dreading it as I have nothing that looks really 'nice'. Everything I own has a well used air to it.

What can I do? I dont have lots of cash to throw away but I need some clothes to help give me some confidence.

The accommodation will be woodland lodges (so walks in the leafy lanes) and we will be sharing -so theres the nightmare about what to wear lounging before bed/early(ish) mornings etc. I usually wear nighties but will probably buy some pyjamas for decency sake.But all the ones I have seen have horrid tight fitting cotton bottoms.Who can be comfortable in those?

Okay .I'll stop now.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

For pyjamas something like this?

How would you feel in skinny jeans? Maybe these?

I would then get a couple of well fitting tops, long cardigan, maybe some scarfs to dress it up.

How about




thicker knit

thanks ThatsNotMyBabyBelly
Apart from the skinny jeans (shudder,I wouldnt put the world through that amount of suffering) the rest of the links do look like something I could go with. I hadnt thought of Dotty Ps for some reason.Theres one in our small town but I rarely go in.
I will get myself in there on Saturday and try to come out with at least a couple of lovely items .
