OOTD // Denim & Gingham with Yours Clothing

We've already established that I pretty much wear dresses, or at least skirts, every single day of my life. I think I own one pair of trousers, one pair of dungarees and that's it in terms of two-legged garments. But sometimes I think maybe it would be nice to experiment a bit more. When Yours Clothing got in touch and asked if I'd like to try out an outfit from their new collection, I saw this as the perfect opportunity. 

Yours Clothing Plus Size Outfit

Shirt: Yours Clothing
Jeans: Yours Clothing
Shoes: Primark (similar here)

I think the last time I wore a pair of jeans was 2013, so it was quite a bold step for me to go for these grey skinny jeans. It probably sounds odd to say jeans intimidated me, but when you've gone 5 years without having your legs clamped in denim, it does seem a little scary. Would they be uncomfortable? Would the waistband dig into my waist? Would I even be able to get them over my thighs? Thankfully, the answers to those questions are no, no, and yes! 

Casual Plus Size Outfit
The denim is fairly soft and quite stretchy, so I had no problem wiggling my legs into them, but they still fit closely for that streamlined silhouette. I was glad to have a roomy waistband as I was going out for a meal after taking these photos! The waistband is much higher than I expected, and I'm not sure if this is just my denim naivety or if it's part of the design. Where I was worried about the waistband digging into my stomach when I sat down, I actually found I had a small amount of loose fabric right on my waist. However, this isn't enough to look silly, and it means I can comfortably tuck in my tops without getting bulky lines showing through. The other consideration is that the legs are quite long, so I tucked up the hems for a cute casual look.

When it came to my gingham shirt, I thought I'd take another risk. I tend to avoid button-up tops because my bust does not allow it, but this looked loose-fitting. I sized up to be on the safe side, and crossed my fingers. When it arrived, I couldn't believe I was finally wearing a shirt completely buttoned up without my bra on show! The shirt is very, very long so I left a few buttons at the bottom undone and tied it up into a knot for this cute casual finish.

This outfit is so different to what I usually wear, but I absolutely love it! While taking these photos, two separate women came up to me to tell me how lovely I looked. That never happens, so I'm letting Yours Clothing take all the credit there!
