Dc2 is now 10 months old. I'm going out for a colleagues leaving do on Friday, this is the first time I've been "out" since having her.
We're going to a nice but quite posh restaurant and then onto some pubs.
It's my first month back at work so I've not got much money and in really stressy.
I have a nice blue pair of shoes I could quite like either a dress or something to go with black jeggings. A fitted dress would look awful.
I have a big belly, I'm conscious of the top of my arms and my boobs are quite big.
Please can someone help with an idea?

What size are you and what is the budget?

Oh I'm a size 22. I was a 24/26 so feel a bit more confident

Comes in under budget, looks good on bigger lasses and is comfortable.

These are very similar to my shoes.
I do like that dress but wrap or even mock wrap ones don't suit me.

I love yours clothing for going out wear! I've got some great things from there. They stock Scarlett and Jo too and they are amazing x
