Double Vision: Jeans & t-shirt

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey lovelies,

After a few week’s break it is Double Vision time again! In this challenge my amazing friend Dani and I are choosing a theme, item, movie character.. whatever we come up with basically, and style those our own way and post at the same time, more about the challenge here. This week’s theme was chosen by me, and I chose ‘Jeans & t-shirt’. Now this is something that Dani wears a lot, but I wear basically never, so it was more of a challenge to me, haha ;).

I wish I could wear jeans more, but I feel uncomfortable sitting all day at work in them. I should start wearing them more on the weekends though, as I really like this look I came up with. (Sorry for the sick and tired looking face..)

The Plus-size Workwear Challenge: Freestyle

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello lovelies,

A few weeks ago the gorgeous Naomi of Diamonds n’ Pearls was asking other plus-size bloggers on Twitter if anyone would be interested in doing a five-week workwear challenge. There was a nice response and now it’s the 10 of us doing this! 2 of us will post each working day, and we have been given themes for each week. Please see this post by Naomi for more information :). First week’s challenge was a blazer, second week’s was pencil skirt or a pussy bow, third was stepping out of our comfort zones, and fourth was all about popping some colour. You can see my previous posts here, here, here and here.

This is the fifth and final week of this challenge, and the theme is Freestyle. I decided to take this as a chance to do a ‘casual Friday’-look with some of my new Primark goodies, and I will totally wear this look to work some day soon!

Trends for S/S 2012: #1 Pretty pastels

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve done some researching and surfing during the past few days, and I wanted to do a post about spring/summer trends and what kind of outfits I’d like to buy. Turns out there are MANY.. and instead of one post I will do a series, and I want to include as many plus-size (or up to size 20/22) retailers as possible. The first one is about pastels, since there is pretty pastel hues everywhere in new collections. I have combined different retailers items to give you 8 looks that I love, hope you’ll love them too!
