AndSoWeWore// Fashion Round Up

This year has seen me finally get into my groove when it comes to feeling comfortable in my choice of clothes.

I have worn:

Paperbag trousers
And heaven forbid…..leggings!

If you know me in real life, I have a problem with wearing leggings as an actual clothing item for the bottom half. Even more so if your top does not cover your bottom.
I digress

As someone who is classed as plus sized, I have finally discovered (mostly through the joys of Instagram) that I can wear whatever makes me happy.

So with that in mind, I thought I’d share some of my finds.

Fast Fashion is easy to get sucked into and so I am making far more considered purchases these days. Striving to buy smarter and my wardrobe is a mixture of budget and investment pieces and all are only purchased when older clothes have been passed on to a new owner.

Monki – The cut of dreams along with fabulous sales to boot. This brand has helped me embrace my love of colour again.

PinkClove – A brand new to me*; budget-friendly and focusing in plus size clothing, I had high expectations on the cuts and was not disappointed.  For the first time in a long time I have been able to wear a wrap dress that covers my top half with no need for extra safety pins or vest tops to save some modesty.

Asos – With their Klarna payment options I have been able to pick some items that I wouldn’t have tried in the past which led me back to the joys of wide legged trousers

People – To be able to know the people behind the business that make your clothes is epic. Christian makes clothes that fit and flatter for every shape and size. And Allison is a tour de force in all things Style (the capital S is deliberate). Even better, 99% of all the designs come with those all-important pockets! Their pieces are investments and are staples in my wardrobe 

Never a fashion blogger I shall be, but I am always happy to share new finds and things that make me happy in my skin.

What are your go-to brands?

Any independents I need to check out?

*PinkClove were very generous and gifted me the featured pieces in exchange for an honest review. If I didn't like them, I would have sent them back!
