Need a pub outfit - for tomorrow!

Basically due to me putting on loads of weight and not having the oomph to do anything about it, none of my nicer jeans / tops fit.

I'm still struggling with depression but have started to say yes to going out a bit more. Nothing posh, just few drinks after work - with 20 something beautiful people.

Now I'm pushing 50, a good size 16 (as nothing fits) with a huge belly.

Please would someone be able to dress me for a night out after work, a Saturday lunch date. Just anything that I would feel a bit nice in. Somewhere that will deliver tomorrow! Next?

I'm not an adventurous dresser. No frills, big patterns. Just a nice plain top and jeans will do. Hate my fat arms so no short sleeves.

I know the answer is to lose the weight but I don't know howsad
Thank you

Spanx leather trousers.. honestly they are amazing and I’m similar to you age and size. Asos will deliver tomorrow. They’re expensive but so worth it. I actually feel nice in them.

Slouchy jumper with them for lunch. Nice top for evening

Disclaimer.. they’re comfy and stretchy not actual leather 😃

Baukjen top or Phase Eight - both do a lot of flattering plain long sleeve ‘going out’ tops. Plus high rise jeans or trousers & ankle boots? If you can have a blow dry & add some chunky silver jewellery you’ll be good to go!

I have got this top in 2 different colours - very flattering and nice with black jeans

And this jumpsuit...

Both are super flattering and can be dressed up or down.

I'm 5ft2 and a size 16.

Thank you, I do love those silk fred clothes, have ordered the jumpsuit thank you.

Have also ordered this and a black Camisole for the weekend. To wear with black jeans?

I'm so not good at this. I have some lovely stuff in my wardrobe so why cant I get myself to lose the weight and feel nice again😥

Absolutely love that kimono OP! Might order it myself.

It will be perfect with black jeans and a camisole - you'll look amazing!

I hope you have a great weekend smile

Will I look a bit daft in it at my age though?!

No, not at all, it’s perfect for your age and the outing. Now relax and have fun 😊

You'll look amazing!

Try not to worry and enjoy yourself smile

Well I don't look amazing but i feel kind of less scared. I've had a gin gin and maybe I no longer care!
Thank you everyone flowers
