I like to lurk in here but could do with some help if you would be so kind.
I wear jeans ALL the time, they are easy comfortable and practical for having a disabled 3 year old. Now things have started to settle down, i want to start experimenting with clothes and getting my own style back.
I have brought some lovely boots and some funky tights, but i just seem to stall when i put it all together and look in the mirror.
I don't know why it is such a problem, i think i look too frumpy. I'm a 12/14 (depending on shop) on the bottom and a 12 on top. I would say i'm pear shaped but am willing to be corrected on this. Have a terrible muffin top/belly area which im working on.
Any ideas on how to get over this and just wear it? I can post photos if needed but i am quite selfconcious so would prefer not too.
If you usually wear jeans, why not wear a denim skirt? I know whenever I wear a skirt I feel just that little bit more dressed up and I suppose that can make you self-conscious. But a denim skirt can be a good "transition" iyswim.
Wear with a longish tunic or shirt that's not clingy then you won't worry about your muffin top.
Enjoy spending your birthday money Monsoon used to be a safe bet although havent seen anything online that really wows but bound to be more in store. Next & H&M have some good cord skirts if you don't want to go to whitestuff and Boden prices.
