Plus Size Fashion Lookbook: Marbella 2015

As my blog is predominantly beauty based I thought it might be fun to change up the content a little bit. I've done a few outfit related posts before just to test the waters and they seemed to be well received, so I figured my holiday to Marbella would be a nice place to start. The key factors I look for in an outfit are comfort (most importantly), they should flatter my ever changing figure and make me feel more confident (and if not just fake it). For me though an outfit is all about the accessories, I think that's why I love handbags so much, there isn't a number in the back that dictates how you should feel about yourself!

Obviously this isn't a fashion blog so the image quality will not be up to fashion magazine standards and I'm definitely not a size six trend setter, but hey I'm human and this is what decided I wear!

I have quite a few pairs of these shorts, they're super comfortable and come in lots of cute prints. Lets face it, not everyone can wear tiny booty shorts so this is a nice alternative for us girls who are a bit self-conscious of their thighs.

My two new current obsessions are these gorgeous reflective sunglasses from H&M (so inexpensive) and this purple fringe duffel bag which I found in the Boohoo sale. I normally go for more neutral toned bags in either black or tan, so this one was a little different and added a lovely pop of colour (not that I really needed it haha) Plus it only cost a tenner!

I'll be honest, this picture isn't doing this jumpsuit any justice accompanied by my lovely bitch face haha, but it's so comfy (check) and can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories.

This stripy dress has been in my wardrobe for ages, it's always one I pull out for holidays as it's versatile and again really comfy. I've also been loving delicate gold jewelery, like this double chain hexagon necklace, it's so pretty when it catches the light.

Let me know if you would like me to continue doing these kind of posts, I'm always interested to know what you guys think. I also have a post coming up featuring all my holiday beauty essentials, so stay tuned for that.

P.S Sorry again for my bitch face in some of the pictures haha, I still find posing quite a challenge, if you can't tell!

XOXO Claire
