It’s All Yours! A Yours Clothing Review

Hey everyone, today’s post is a little different to my usual outfit reviews. Hanna and I were contacted by Yours Clothing and was offered the chance to do a collaborative post. Blogging can be quite a solitary thing to do and when I first started out I was doing pretty much everything on my own, my mum was taking my outfit pictures and I didn’t know that many bloggers closely. Hanna and I had met a couple of times, but it was at an event that we realised that we are neighbours! We have since been taking each other’s outfit pictures and have become really close friends. I have to say it’s so much fun having a close friend and fellow blogger just around the corner. She was a huge inspiration to me before we met so getting to know her so well over the past year has been a lot of fun and such a pleasure, I love this girl!

When it comes to style our weekly photo sessions have become a lot of fun and we usually finish up over a coffee and loads of laughs. It’s always fortunate when a good friend of yours is around the corner, you never know when you might wanna have a quick natter and as we are really similar in dress size we’ve been able to borrow the odd item of clothing from each other here and there. For me I’ve never had the luxury before, seeing as I’m the only plus size girl out of my old friends.

We quickly became familiar with each others sense of style, angles and poses and she is one of the few people I 100% trust when it comes to my style. Some of you may have seen some previous posts I have written where I have worn outfits she has styled on me. This time around we were posing together with the help of Hanna’s tripod and I really love how the pics came out. When it came to selecting our outfits I wanted something that would show off my personal style. My aim was to select something a little different that would also compliment Hanna’s chosen outfit. We both ended up with acid wash jeans and sandals but my look is a little more dressy in it’s overall style.

As some of you know I have a thing for Monochrome outfits and that’s exactly what I was going for here. Even though we’re now in the spring, there are some really great options out there for people who maybe want to keep things simple and add a splash of colour. In my case I wanted to add a little sassiness whilst keeping the shaded colours as the main focus. I selected the black and white sleeveless top with aysemtric hem, size 22-24. I have to say the cut and fit of this top is amazing and provides loads of room for boobs and your stomach area.

The dark grey acid wash super stretch skinny jeans were a must for me. In truth I had never tried a pair of acid wash jeans before and these were great for my first pair. I’m wearing these in a 26 but a 24 would have been fine also. I always like to wear my jeans slightly too big so that I have plenty of room for my extra lumps and bumps. I find that if you wear jeans a little larger they are more flattering to your shape.


Even though the sun is starting to shine brightly at the moment I still like that additional coverage to combat the chill that hangs in the air. I developed a love of longline cardigans a while ago. This black knitted cardigan with ladder stitch and fringing is so nice to wear. Despite the style it is really warm and adds a little to a style of clothing that would otherwise be very simple. Even though I have reams of confidence I, like many other women have those areas that I am not exactly in love with! The 3 quarter length sleeves cover the tops of my arms nicely which for me has ALWAYS been my problem area. I’m wearing this one in a size 22-24.

I like my footwear to be simple and stylish and these gladiator sling back sandals caught my eye as soon as I saw them. Unfortunately the fit of them wasn’t great on me and my feet kept sliding in them. The good news is after Hanna and I finished taking these pictures we of course tried on each other’s outfits and we ended up swapping sandals. For more detail on Hanna’s chosen outfit, be sure to head over to her blog for links.


When it came to my choice of accessories I wanted to bring a little of my music taste into the mix. I’m sure those of you who read my blog from time to time will be aware that I am a huge Michael Jackson fan! It’s not often that I can incorporate elements on his style into my own but when I get the chance I take it! I have had my white Fedora hat since I was 21! I don’t wear it often as there’s not many outfits I can include it with. I wanted that “Smooth Criminal” edge so in keeping with my usual style I added a black and white bandana underneath. Top this off with my MJ pendant and signature hoop earrings and my look was complete.

You know what I always say, have fun with your look play around and wear what makes you feel amazing! I had a lot of fun putting this look together and working on this post with Hanna and I hope we get the chance to collaborate this way again in the future. It’s always fun playing dress up with your friends and for me this was most definitely one of those times!

    You both look stunning. Your smiles brighten my day!!! I love your top!! I might go and buy it before I go to Mexico as it would go so well with my shorts. :) I love the fringed cardigan too, but I fear I would end up hating it every time I got in and out of the car. I had a shorter fringed kimono last year that I loved the look of but it had frings and they constantly annoyed me!!! :) It's lovely to see you and Hanna together. :) Hope to catch you soon lovely. xx

    Hey honey how are you? You should totally get it it's really suit you. You know what the cardigan isn't annoying at all, I thought it would be awkward when I first got it but I actually really like it, the hard part is getting it on without getting your fingers caught in the laddered fringe lol. Sounds like an amazing holiday you have booked Hun x
