Outfit post - Boohoo Plus


T-shirt: Boohoo Plus - Boots: Primark - Skirt: ASOS - Bracelet: Alexander McQueen

I haven't posted an outfit for around 6 weeks, I'm going to have to rename this blog Fat Travels or Fat Cooks a lot. It's always too dark or raining to take nice photos in the UK at the moment so no whimsical photos in a field sorry, you get photos in my bedroom where the camera is balanced on a pile of books. I've been wearing this outfit a lot on weekends recently. I tend to stick to the librarian who wears a lot of Joules look in work but try to be a bit more casual on weekends. I can't recommend this skirt enough, it's super heavy and the perfect length. All skater skirts are indecently short at the moment (maybe I'm just getting old?) so I treated myself to this more demure ASOS midi.


I don't wear this bracelet enough, it was a impulse sale purchase a few years ago and I'm trying to get the cost per wear down a little. Pairing it with my new favourite outfit means it's getting out of its box more frequently.


Trying to find cheap boots that fit my wide feet is a yearly nightmare for me. Wide fit shoes tend to be ugly and aimed at a 50yr old + market so I snapped these wide fit Primark beauties up as son as I saw them. 


I've got my arms out! I never get my arms out. I'm learning to embrace my bingo wings.


I've been posting loads of photos over on instagram recently so if you like photos of cake and other calorific food head over there to take a look. Instagram tends to get all the moments that aren't big enough to get a blog post. Leave your instagram name below if you use it, I'm always looking for new people to follow.


I've got posts about my trip to Bath and a day out in Cathays Park, Cardiff coming up later this week so keep en eye out for those.

  2. I like the boots. I have a wide feet too, so I totally understand the problem with finding a nice pair of shoes which actually fit, are comfortable and look good - all at the same time.

  5. I find that keeping my jewellery in it's boxes makes me forget what i have and then less likely to wear it. I started keeping my rings on a plate and it's sort of easier to see what's going on and find something to go with an outfit when I'm about to leave the house.

    1. Definitely true, I've still got a jewellery box at my mums too. So easy to forget what you have.

  11. I love this skirt! Never brave enough to wear a midi skirt - I know what you mean about skater skirts being short though. Sort of defeats the point if you can't move in them for risk of flashing your pants!

  12. Mmmm those cakes look yummy! I don't know who they think wears wide fit shoes, but yes, they are definitely all frumpy looking, low heeled, clompy things! I'm seeing more and more BooHoo Plus stuff that I like, definitely need to place an order and try them for myself.
