A Perfect Travel Companion From Yours and A Great Day Out With Blogger Babes

When I was a young teenager and then again when I was in my mid 20s, which seems like a long long long time ago (maybe because it is, being over 25 years ago since I was 15) , checked shirts were so in fashion and everyone wore them. They are really versatile and can be worn with most things so when I saw this lovely black and white one at Yours Clothing I had to have it. 

Don't know what Mike did or said, but a great shot! So happy.... 

Also knowing I was going travelling soon I knew that this shirt would be perfect to travel in as it's comfortable and made of a very nice and cool viscose fabric that would go well in the transition from colder England to hot Spain. You know when you see an item of clothing and you can plan it with so many different things? This shirt is such a thing. I bought it in size 26 for an oversized style, but I could easily have chosen my normal 24 and still been oversized.

 I love this blue handbag which Leah gave me for my 40th birthday in July. It is the smaller bag out of two in a travel set. I love the simplicity of it and the bright pink edges sets the blue colour perfectly off.

I didn't like the belt that came with the skirt much so I swapped it for a think gold coloured one instead. And as you can see it gives me a good shape.

Brightening up the outfit with these lovely shoes from Evans. 

And like I said earlier, I knew I would get use for this shirt when I'm out travelling. Here I am in Alicante on the way home from holiday wearing it. Very comfy and practical with a red pair of leggings and sandals. And the same bag, which is super convenient on travels as handluggage!! 

Leah and I wearing the same shirt in different colours. This shirt comes in six different colours by now, so if you don't like the ones that we are wearing take a look at the website as you might like the other colours. You can find them HERE. 

 A week before I went on holiday I went to the UK Plus Size Fashion Week where I met so many of the lovely blogger babes. Under you can see a lot of selfies and group photos that was taken on the day. It was so much fun to see everyone again as I hadn't seen some of them since Plus North last year!! And where ever there is bloggers, there is selfies!!!

Don't we all look great? It was my first outing for ages so it was amazing meeting everyone again and everyone was so nice to me and said how much they've missed me. It's nice to hear when you're not feeling 100%. It's like a huge vitamin burst of happiness just in seeing these girls. They make me smile so much. Love you all. 

I was offered the chance to model again at the event which was a blast from the past to last years events at Plus North and Style XL. I modelled some lovely clothes from Evans and here are the official photo. 

I look forward to more events next year and I have two holidays booked for next year already, and none of them conflicts with events!! So I hope to see more of you at events next year! :) 


  1. Yay, this post makes me happy! You look great in the shirt and it made me smile to see all those lovely smiling faces from UKPSFW again. :)
