#ootd - Sunshine On a Rainy Day

Hey Kittens,

Still going string on the 30 X 30 challenge and this time I want to talk about coordinates. I have been loving all the great coordinates springing up in the plus size fashion world. I have to say that Missguided are really leading this ball game though, If like me at first you sat and marvelled at how pretty they were but were scared of the crop tops, I urge you to push your fears aside and give it a try. I waited so long I missed out on the paint effect set until the amazing Toodaloo Katie had hers up for sale and I just knew I had to give it at least a try.


The crop top isn't too short and meets up with a beautiful full skirt. The material is scuba effect so falls just right and is so warm and comfortable even in this blustery weather. I love rocking bold colours on a cold day to bring a ray of sunshine to Birmingham streets. I also teamed it with my new cardigan which I featured earlier last week in this post. As the crop top started to rise I didn't care. Yes my flesh was on show and you know what? The world didn't fall apart and I never had any negative comments, I pushed myself out of that comfort zone and it felt amazing and I actually felt pretty damn powerful,


Later in the month I wore the skirt separately with a plain vest top and a little cardigan for a more demure. Keep an eye out to see how I restyled the crop top too,


 Do not be afraid to rock bright colours in the rain or push your own boundaries, I will definitely be snapping up some more crop tops and coordinates when I see them,

Have you pushed yourself out of your comfort zone lately?

  3. I love scuba effect fabric, more clothes should be made out of it. You look gorgeous in the dark florals. Especially like them with the fur x

  4. Very cute! it looks good all three ways - I think I like the 'demure' restyle best.

    I'm wearing jeans now with tops from mint velvet. I'm in my 50s and thought it was a look that just wouldn't work for me, but I think it is quite rejuvenating (if that makes sense)

  6. Love that it is 2 separate items, you can get so much more wear out of it. Big bonus with scuba material is that is doesn't need ironing :) x

  8. That co-ord set is so cute! Missguided have some great bits but I always forget about them until it's too late then they sell out on the things I like. Love how you've styled them individually too X

  9. Oh wow, your style is really adorable! I'm really loving that skirt.
    I've been into crop tops lately as well -- it's the first time I've ever felt comfortable enough with my body to wear them. That's probably as far as I've gone lately as far as going outside of my comfort zone :)

    1. I think it is important to push ourselves a little sometimes. Worst that could happen is you hate it but least you try right? x

  10. What a lovely outfit - the great thing about sets like that is that you can mix and match to create a good few outfits :) Looking lovely, my dear!

  11. This is such a gorgeous pattern! I like how dark the material itself is in contrast too, as it stops both being too bright and in your face. I've actually never tried a scuba skirt but always love how they look on people :)
