So it's kind of our honeymoon but we will have our 20 month old dd with us. Staying in a static caravan on the south coast so will be doing lots of day trips, a few shopping trips and hopefully lots of beach time.

I am size 16-18 and like to have my arms covered, don't really do heels very often.

I want to look stylish and look back on our photos of our first family hol/honeymoon and feel I looked good an you lovely folk give me a good plan for a capsule "wardrobe" and maybe some inspiration for outfits.

Oh, and I struggle with jeans as if they fit on the legs they are too tight round the waist, and if they fit on the waist I get a saggy baggy bum and legs. So unless anybody has any miraculous Jean recommendation, then jeans to be avoided please smile

Jeans... have you tried Levi curve?!

They have different waist/thighbum ratios so you can get them to fit bum AND waist!

Ooooo I might have to check them out, could be the answer to all my fashion problems. I'm fed up of not being able to wear normal length tops because I need long ones over leggings!

Dresses and leggings are fab! A black cardy will always pull an outfit together (I get mine from H&M, M&S and Debenhams) Go for a fab colourful dress that makes you twirl when you wear it (Sainsbury's do a good selection, as do Wallis)...Fit and Flare/Skater dresses are great as I'm a 16/18 and they're very forgiving. Also, I can't resist a dress with pockets as I'm always carting about daughter's soft toys!

Make sure you have sunglasses and great make up and every photo will look amazing!
