Mr and Mrs Mookie Doing Yours Clothing His And Her Shoot.

Hello everyone.

Today I have the pleasure of introducing my lovely husband reviewing some clothes on my blog. Yours Clothing has recently introduced their first men's plus size clothing range which is amazing news as plus size men doesn't have many places to shop either. Maybe men aren't as interested in fashion and shopping as us women, I still think that most men like to look their best. And if you are a plus size man, there isn't too much of a choice, so I want to give Yours Clothing's mens range a big warm welcome.

I was asked by the lovely people at Yours Clothing if Mike and I wanted to do a his and hers shoot with some of the clothes from the men's range and some from the new spring collection for women. We got pretty excited when we were asked as we thought it would be so much fun doing this together.

And we were right, it turned out to be such a fun experience and I have to admit I think the photos turned out really really well too (apart from when you use self timer and tripod there is no one to tell me that my shrug had ridden up, but it adds a bit of fun and the photos are so real and spontanious).

Don't we look good? We have done two different styles to show a bit of versatility in the clothes so I hope you enjoy this review.

First Mike's review.

When Mookie mentioned it to me about the possibility to do a shoot I was thrilled to be asked. I normally stay on the other side of the camera so it was nice a brand new experience for me, but a fun one.

I had picked this Green, White And Black Plaid Shirt With Patch Pocket* and a MIGHTY Grey 5-pocket Classic fit Trousers* as I liked the style of the shirt and I thought they went really well with the jean style trousers. I didn't want anything too formal as I feel more comfortable with a relaxed look.

The shirt is really good quality material and soft to the touch. Looks really well made and think it will last me for years. I like the colours in this shirt which complemented the grey colour from the trousers. However the sizing of this shirt is very big. I first ordered 2XL as this size normally fits me best, but it was really big when it arrived so I exchanged it for an XL size. This was also a bit on the big side, but it wasn't too big and I was happy the way it looked on me. I can see myself wearing this shirt open with a plain t-shirt under too. It is such a comfortable shirt to wear and I'm sure I will be wearing it many more times to come.

The trousers which I would call jeans as they are a 5 pocket style and flat fronted fitted perfectly in my normal waist size 38" so no oversize here. As they fitted so well they are very comfortable and had a bit of stretch in them, but not so much that they lose their shape. Great dark grey colour and they have a stripy texture which becomes more apparent the closer you look.

I finished the look off with some black leather slip on shoes from Padders that I have had for some time.

Mookie's review: 

It's not a secret that I'm a girly girl and love my dresses so I couldn't resist this beautiful Black And Coral Orchid Floral Print Skater Dress With V Neck*. Isn't it stunning? I am in two minds whether I like florals or not, but this orchid print is just stunning. And the colours speak to me as well so I couldn't resist it. It's a lovely stretchy dress in a scuba material, but it is not too thick as some scuba material can be. It gives a lovely fit and the length is perfect for my liking. Just above the knees. The design of the dress is in favour of my big boobs as it doesn't have the line going under the bust which again means that it will look right when wearing it. I love the flared skirt and I can even see myself wearing it with a short petticoat under. I know that black not be the first colour you reach for when it is spring and summer, but the colours of the flowers in this dress makes it a great choice for the seasons to come. I'm going to wear this dress to a lunch my sister in law is hosting the day after my niece's wedding. And with a blazer and tights it makes a great office look. 

For these photos I wore it with this Black Slub Knit Shrug With Tie* which is such a bargain. For £16 you get a versatile shrug that you can use to so many different outfits and not just dresses, but over t-shirts with jeans or shorts or with a some lovely Palazzo trousers with a body under. This shrug is stretchy and you can wear it tied as I have done or open for a more casual style.

I teamed it up with some shoe boots from Evans that I have had for a some time, but rarely worn. Also wore a pink stretch bracelet and a vintage handbag.  

For Mike's second look he just wanted to show the outfit with a casual jacket. 

He is wearing his DKNY jacket that was a bargain from TK Maxx a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I think he looks rather handsome in these clothes. :) 

Back to Mike again for a summary of his experience.

It turned out to be a very fun afternoon as I'm not that keen on having my photo taken. I found posing on my own a bit awkward, but it was really good fun to set up the tripod and have the photos taken with Mookie. She helped me relax more and I think you can tell from the photos that we both really enjoyed it. A big thank you from me to Yours Clothing supplying the clothes I highly recommend their menswear range. 

P.S. So now I'm thinking of giving up my job in insurance and going into modelling full time so please contact my agent, Mookie for all your booking enqueries ;) ;) ;) ;) 

Mookie's second look: 

I love this look so much that I know it will be a go to look in the spring. I adore this dress with a denim jacket. It goes so well and I can't wait for wearing this again. When I saw the photos I said to Mike that it was one of my favourite looks. It's so me. Cute and comfy. 
I'm wearing a pair of black flats and it's is such a cute look for a Saturday lunch out with a friend. 

It was such a fun experience to do photos with Mike and we had so much fun. :) I have loads of outtakes from this shoot and I will make some of them into a gif cause they are funny, so I will post it on social media sometime. Thanks to Yours Clothing for letting us do this his and hers review and thanks to Mike for being a perfect model! :)
