What I Wore | Chilly Spring Day

With Spring officially here, I suppose I should come out of hibernation. Everything has been great over the past few months, but things have been busy and I was sick for what seemed 3 months! I've recently started College again as well as working, so I haven't had much time if I'm honest. I know I sound like a broken record dipping in and out when it, but life just gets in the way. Mandy's Heaven kindly sent me a package a little while ago, and I've been raving about them since. It's great when an online boutique caters for both straight sizes and plus sizes. The boutique is here and based in the U.K. What I love is all different women model the clothes. There's a range of ages and shapes and sizes which is a nice personal touch - exactly what a boutique is meant to be like. I opted for these gorgeous PoloNeck*. As a size 14/16, I chose the 16-20 and it's so nice and cozy.
I'm sick of consistently wearing my leather jacket, which has probably seen better days so I opted for a blanket scarf and tied it with a belt. I was as snug, as a bug in a rug. This Winter I've really embraced polo neck jumpers. With big boobs, I used to shy away, but I find for me, wearing it either with a belt, or tucked into a high waist skirt, but boobs don't take centre stage! I picked it up in Penney's earlier in the Winter and can't believe I haven't worn it that much! It was perfect over the poloneck which is too light to wear on its own. It's incredibly soft and doesn't itch the skin at all. The asymmetrical hem is a lovely touch, and gives it a very designer feel. Priced at £38 it's also really reasonable for the quality you get. 
For accessories, I kept things pretty simple. I went for a black and gold chained bag, a Fedora and a belt. I dropped the jewelery as I didn't want too much fuss, especially with my blanket scarf! The Fedora is a cool way to keep your head warm if you're not a beanie kind of babe! For footwear I chose my very much loved over the knee boots, which I picked up in Penneys in October and have worn them to absolutely death! For under €30 I think it's safe to call them the bargain of the season. The talking point however, is definitely the jumper. Like I mentioned, it's super soft and is the perfect layering piece, especially for Spring. It's not too bulky and is just perfect for under Jackets, but when it gets a little warmer, it will be lovely on it's own with leggings and pumps!
