We have had such gorgeous weather recently and so it's time to get the summer clothing out. When it comes to summer clothing I tend to struggle with being currently plus size I seem to hate what my body looks like in most of the summer items I own especially around my tummy area.
I like to wear pieces during the summer months that can be mixed and matched so I don't have to make too much effort when it comes to planning an outfit. I was asked by Simply Be to choose a few items that I can mix and match.
After browsing their website I picked out a gorgeous rose print cardigan and some tops from their holiday clothing range and also a pair of jeans from their selection of plus size jeans.
I wear leggings a lot and so when I found a pack of two side split tunic tops I thought they would be ideal for throwing on paired with my usual leggings. They are perfect for the summer as they are lightweight, loose fitting and cover my bum. I like that the tunic tops cover my tummy area well without clinging either which is a must.
The cardigan that I chose is perfect to wear with the tunic tops when the weather is cooler.
The cardigan has a lovely rose jacquard design to the front and back panels which I love as I'm seeing floral patterns around quite a bit this season. I do wish I had gone for the smaller size as I feel that it would have fit me a bit better than my usual size as it's a little baggy so you may want to bear that in mind.
The other top that I chose was this frill sleeve top which is a versatile piece that I will be wearing again and again this summer. Not only is ideal to wear with the Jeans that I chose below but it will great with skirts and shorts this summer too. I love the colour as well as the frill sleeves which also happen to be on trend this summer.
My favourite item that I picked out has to be these high waist button front slim leg jeans. I've wanted to try high waisted jeans for awhile and I'm glad I did as there is no going back now.
They are great at covering my mum tum which is great when your bending down and running around a lot. They are great for dressing down with my pair of converses and up with a pair of heels. High waisted jeans are now a definite must have piece in my wardrobe now and I fully recommended getting yourself a pair or two.
