The Plus-size Workwear Challenge: How to ‘werk’ the blazer
Hey my lovelies,
A few weeks ago the gorgeous Naomi of Diamonds n’ Pearls was asking other plus-size bloggers on Twitter if anyone would be interested in doing a five-week workwear challenge. There was a nice response and now it’s the 10 of us doing this! 2 of us will post each working day, and we have been given themes for each week. Please see this post by Naomi for more information :).
The first week’s theme is ‘How to ‘werk’ the blazer’. I love this theme as I have found my love for blazers just recently. I didn’t use to like them at all, but now I’m practically obsessed :D. My amazing friend Dani sent me this Forever 21+ blazer in a care package a few weeks ago, and I was excited to wear it for this post. But since I work in an office where we can wear practically anything, I didn’t want to look TOO professional ;). So I teamed the blazer up with a sheer shirt from New Look Inspire, my trusty Old Navy skirt and these fabulous glitter shoes from Target – also from Dani’s care package!
Blazer: 2X, Forever 21+ – gift from Dani (similar at Macy’s, other lovely light coloured blazers: Macy’s, Simply Be, New Look Inspire) | Shirt: 24, New Look Inspire (similar at George at ASDA: 1, 2, similar at Forever 21+) | Skirt: XL, Old Navy – shortened (similar at ASOS Curve) | Belt: New Look Inspire (similar at Simply Be: 1, 2, similar at New Look) | Tights: E, We Love Colors | Shoes: Target – gift from Dani (similar at Daniel Footwear, similar at 6pm, similar at Karmaloop) | Glasses*: Four Eyes | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Cranberry – available in Boots (similar by MAC)
That was my take on the blazer, new theme coming next week (and next week I will post on Wednesday). And please don’t forget to enter my anniversary giveaways: styling session at Evans and £100 outfit, £100 to spend on Scarlett&Jo at Evans, and a pair of Minnetonka suede moccasins!
