Under Cover In Spain Wearing Boohoo

Just before I left for my stay in Spain I was lucky enough to be invited to Boohoo's press day where we were shown some really nice pieces from their current and upcoming collections. I love Boohoo cause they have very affordable fashion for plus size women. Their sizes goes up to 24, but some up to 26 and their sizing is in many cases very generous so it can cater for sizes above the 26 mark.

The day before I left I received one of the pieces we had seen at the press day. This Dina Camo cropped bomber jacket* that I think most of us who was there fell in love with. What did it for me was when the beautiful and funny Olivia Campbell wore it and told us it was cropped cause I love cropped jackets!!! Cropped jackets works so well on girls with big boobs. I remember when I was younger and lived in Norway, whenever I read an article or saw some fashion advice for bigger girls it told me to avoid cropped jackets at all cost as they would just make your boobs look bigger and more bulk up top. Biggest non sense I've ever heard!!! Cropped jackets are perfect as they nip you in just under the boobs, which in most cases also is the narrowest of your upper body so it means it looks super flattering and gives you a really nice shape.

 This jacket is no exception! I love it!!! I love the colours, I love the shape of it, I love that it is collarless and the fabric is really nice too.
 I'm wearing a size 24 which is perfect for me. I don't find it too small or too tight. I think Boohoo is very good in most cases with their sizing so I was very confident choosing this jacket despite it not going higher in size than a 24.
I chose to style it with a cropped top and a leather skirt as I wanted to keep it edgy. I always prefer to pull the sleeves up as I always get too hot and here in Spain at the moment it is way to warm for jackets during daytime, but I can see myself wearing this exactly like this going out in the evenings for a drink. I also like the look the pulled up sleeves give.

Silly as I am I forgot to put shoes on before I did these photos, but I think a pair of Converse would be a good look. Same with block heels sandals.
The only thing I don't like about this jacket is the pockets as they are way too big!!! They kind of hang out of the jacket which is not a very nice look. It's easily fixed with a couple of stitches though so that is what I will be doing.
The colours of this jacket is pretty and quite neutral. I can myself using this jacket with white, pinkish colours, neutrals and grey as well, so in the autumn I think it would look great with a polo neck jumper, jeans and sneakers.

I love the skirt I'm wearing as well. It's from New Look and you can find it HERE in both black as I'm wearing and in Burgundy. It's a-line and it has pockets!!! Nothing is better than pockets, so this skirt will be one of my autumnal favourites. I'm wearing a size 24 and it's true to size.


  1. Looking FAB-U-LOUS, m'dear! I love how you styled it. My post is up now too. :) xx
