I won't lie to you, I am not the biggest fan of winterwear at all. In fact if you looked in my wardrobe you would notice a significant lack of anything remotely sensible to wear when the weather is colder - which is probably why I am not a fan of the winter months in general.
I know that there are lots of people who get excited about layering and wearing snuggable clothing, but that doesn't float my boat at all - I want to be able to throw a dress and leggings on and leave the house without having to worry.
You would think that July is the perfect time of year to do this - we should be in the full throws of summer by now, but we're really not! Now I am throwing on a dress and leggings and then wondering what the weather will do for the rest of the day before I leave the house.
I noticed this jacket on the Topsy Curvy Facebook page and thought it was lovely. I was even more excited when they announced that it went up to a size 32!
The jacket was in my hands a few days later and I fell in love. I'm not exaggerating when I say I take this jacket out with me nearly every day - it's perfect! It's nice and lightweight when means on a warm day it's not too much, but if I get caught in a rainstorm on the way home from work it offers a little protection!
Size wise it's brilliant! I really admire Topsy Curvy who are without a doubt one of my favourite smaller independent brands. I know that they are keen to introduce bigger sizes to their range and are always pushing their suppliers to do more - which this jacket is proof of!
They have loads of different jackets to choose from too!
Both dresses will feature in future blog posts - one is from Simply Be and one is from CowCow
