I'm stuck in a style rut, and need to make more of an effort with my outfits. At the moment I feel dull and scruffy and frumpy.
I have a night out, just a pub crawl so nothing too fancy, coming up with dh soon and want something nice to wear. I am getting my hair cut into a long bob (I had a thread about that) on the same day so want a new outfit to set it off perfectly and to begin to get out of this rut!
I'm a size 18, big boobs and belly and I like to have my upper arms covered. Nothing too fancy, maybe heels although I would prefer flats I think. I like to dress a bit vintagey, or a bit boho but with class. I rarely wear jeans as they never seem to fit me right!
How about some cullottes and a funky top? Can be worn with a long sleeve top. Or fitted black trousers a plain top and a kimono style jacket, perhaps better with heels but could also be with funky flats? Are you on Pinterest, have a play around searching for ideas and then look on the high street?
I won't have the time or money to order lots from Asos, even if I'm sending some back!
I love some of those Asos items, but just can't see them working on me without looking a bit messy and frumpy. Play suits and shorts are a big no no! I love the boho jumpsuit but would need something covering my arms and then I think it would lose the effect and look messy!
