Plus Size Workwear Challenge and Capesthorne Hall.


Cardigan/Tee: Dorothy Perkins. Skirt: Topshop. Brooch: Vintage, Thrifted. Patent Brogues: c/o Clarks.

Okay so technically this isn't a work wear outfit as I'm stood in a lovely garden which is part of an even more lovely house (well Hall, it's hugggeee and grand) but I was there to pick up a few flyer's and check it out for work. I went to the Wedding Fayre at Capesthorne Hall today and saw a little catwalk from a wedding dress boutique lets just say I think I fell in love with one of their models she was utterly stunning about a size 16 very classic make up and face every single dress she modelled looked amazing on her!

Half of this outfit is new half is very old and almost forgotten! I'd gone off this cardigan as I'd bought it in a size 20 and now much prefer my cardigan's very fitted but the adorable scalloped neckline made me want to pull it out again today and start wearing it again! It also helps that this weeks challenge was "Pop Yo Colour" and as I tend to shy away from really bright colour this burnt orange works really well. I've just started knotting things up on my waist and I'm really loving wearing basically everything this way, crop tops are my next step! A year or so back I had a bit of an obsession with a denim skirt I basically wore to death and I felt it was time to rekindle this love with a reincarnation in the form of this skirt, which is a size 16 from Topshop. I was lucky enough to be sent these Brogues by Clark's which are perfect for work wear and well all the time, they are also SO COMFORTABLE I'm just a little bit in love with them and I've only worn them for a day!

I finished it all with my make up done remotely nicely for a change and a slick of Topshops Infared lipstick. You may of noticed that I've also had my hair cut, its the shortest I've had it for a long time but I felt like it needed a really good cutting and I still have some ombre left so it's all good. I have to admit its taken me over a week to get used to it but I'm beginning to really like my hair now it's settled a little more.
