Page 19 | Plus size chat / what are you wearing today sort of thread 2!(583 Posts)
Following on from our previous thread, here is a shiny new one to see us through Spring / Summer and maybe beyond!
Feel free to join. We are very friendly and size inclusive.
HI. The Fitflops looked narrow but amazingly fitted my wide feet. They are very comfy. I have them in navy suede with red inner lining.
Wearing a pink and navy print Joules top (pack of two) plus my M&S 'MOM' jeans which are waaaaay too big on the thighs but at least they are comfy!!!!
JimmyJabs I too will miss your pictures.
So I'm back in the office but I'm in a different room. My old room was toasty warm but the new room is bloody freezing! So I'm wearing a cosy jumper dress from Sainsbury's today and hopefully I'll actually be able to get some work done today. Yesterday was a nightmare getting setting up etc and now I'm really behind
Love that @StCharlotte. Very cosy.
I'm cold today. Nobody else is in my 'office' (house). We are off for a walk in a bit. Hopefully that will warm me up a bit.
Deathraystare thanks for the information, I've just had another look, I like the Pilar ones...
We have deep snow on the ground here again, its quite depressing now...
I've got to take DD to an emergency orthodontist appointment (brace trouble) then I have late+ night shift. Wearing my second pair of Levi 501s (love the light blue ones I bough afew months ago and wear them whenever they aren't in the wash, so bought a dark grey pair too) and a white stuff jersey shirt (also was wearing the one I had frequently but its fairly distinctive pattern so bought 3 more in similar styles but different colours/ patterns to wear for work). Not that different to the last picture I posted so not really worth a photo.
Lovely dress @StCharlotte - and I am jealous of all your trips out and about....
I've been lurking (and admiring) but not posting, I've mostly worn M&S jeggings and cosy jumpers on rotation recently. Today I'm wearing new Poetry linen tapered trousers. They were expensive but are excellent quality heavy linen with a waist that actually fits me as well as fitting my hips and bum... it's so hard for me to find trousers that fit properly - I'm very happy to find these. I'll be saving for another pair!! Wearing them with a Toast jumper and birkies ( but in reality I'm wearing woolly socks and slippers.)
@StCharlotte, there's a lot to be said for wearing similar items most days...not that I do that...ahem.
Great trousers @alphaechokiwi!
Here I am in Tu, girlfriend jeans
again, with a navy, cotton v neck from M&S.
Not a lot going on here. We are having a quiet day at home, which means more decluttering for me ! Hope everyone else is having a nice day. Nearly weekend!!
Wearing a ribbed pale wine top from Simply Be and a pair of animal print trousers from Sainsburys (TU). They ae a little long so I must not wear them in the rain!
alphaechokiwi That outfit looks very cool indeed (although the thought of bare feet at the moment makes me shiver!).
I like the navy and grey combo @ParisJeTAime.
@jimmyjabs I respect your decision, but just wanted to say I wish you could see what we do. You look great. Very in proportion, lovely shape. It makes me sad and I hope you stick around to read at least. I can empathise with you, I really can. Sending much love.
Here's my last outfit, this was smear chic 😂 The nurse told me she loved my dress.
I went back the next week for blood tests with the same nurse. She didn't seem to remember me but again commented how my outfit had cheered her up so that was kind. I think I was wearing a batman t shirt, Burgundy tights, horizontal stripe cheapy ebay skirt and jack skellington hoody.
Pic - hellBunny dress, snag woolies and the obligatory DM boots. Marks thermagen glitter long sleeves
A bit late to the party, hope you don’t mind me sneaking in to the chat, waves...
Stuck in a leggings and slippers rut which I’m hoping to shake out of when the weather warms up enough to start using my spring/summer clothes!
Hi @hangryeyes! Welcome
Leggings lovers are welcome here
I'm in the same thing I had on yesterday, so no pic today. Might go wild and wear a dress tomorrow .
@Myshitisreal, I love your style! I can absolutely believe you cheered up the nurse with your outfit.
PS: I have tried on a few different styles lately and I really think straight cut is 'my' jeans shape.
They definitely are @ParisJeTAime - you look great in all your jeans!
On Friday morning I was having a few moments (!) on MN before getting ready for work but I'd completely forgotten to allow an extra half hour to actually go to the office instead of 10 seconds to get to my desk upstairs No navy dresses for me that day - just threw on some leggings and a top and ran out of the door. Thank goodness for the casual dress code that"s currently in place
No outings over the weekend so minimal dressing effort made.
Oh no @StCharlotte! I'm sure you looked absolutely fine. I bet it is really tricky getting back into the going OUT to work mindset. When dh goes back to the office, I think it will feel really weird.
Here I am, in Alice Temperley Somerset dress, (size 18). Wearing with merino thermals underneath and woolly socks and not goth boots. Also another merino layer on top! Determined to wear a dress but...brrrr.
Looks gorgeous, Paris. Has your Dh accepted the notgoth boots yet?
Thanks! It's a lovely dress in person I think. And really versatile. Could be worn pretty much anywhere I reckon. Ok, maybe not an office.
DH hasn't mentioned the not goth boots again! But I wear them a lot, so I assume he has got used to them
ParisJeTAime depends on the office, Im sure it'd meet business-casual dress code
requirements, certainly a nice dress.
I've just spent the morning bagging up everything I don't love/ which doesn't fot in my wardrobe and taken 8 bags to the donation/ recycling containers in town! That was rather impulsive, but I feel very free! I just randomly remembered 6 years ago rushing to hospital with dc1 expecting to go home with her once seen, and being there for a week - DH had to bring me clothes and brought some too small things without knowing. Obviously clothes are unimportant when DC is really poorly, but it just made me think Id like to only have things which fit and which I really like, so that whoever packed my bags they couldn't get it wrong (unless weather or occasion inappropriate obviously).
I have no idea why I suddenly felt able to do that today!
My quest for properly fitting bras isn't going so well - I ordered one bra to try from Bravissimo on 16th March and it took until today to come, and I got charged 17.50€ import duty, and its only ok, meh,not a perfect fit at all - I'm most pissed off to be honest... Oh well... I may have to resign myself to going to "the city" when shops reopen again, or seeing whether I can make an appointment at a specialist bra shop...
I'd never thought of it like that @UntilYourNextHairBra
Sorry about the bra! A perfect fit bra is probably worth a trip to the city for. Annoying though.
Very happily wearing Sophia Girlfriend Jeans from Monsoon. Also a pumpkin colour top from TU. A button down t shirt. Not sure pumpkin is my colour as I think I am a 'Spring' not an 'Autumn'.
Oh yes! I am in jeans and a wool jumper, plus merino thermals underneath AND a long sleeve tshirt. It was properly showing this morning! We had really thick snow here. Then, by afternoon it was all gone and quite warm . Anyway, I'm still not too warm and have just put the heat on, so there you are.
@Deathraystare, I think I'm also a spring, technically...but not sure. I wear teal and navy most days. I think it looks nice and it's practical. I also love nude and cream type colours, but they just aren't practical for me. It's all very well people saying you have to wear pastels, but when you have small children and do nothing other than muddy walks, it doesn't really work!
