Sunshine & Parrots

My new found love for these black skinny jeans from New Look has meant venturing into the world of suitable up-top-wear. I've been all about dresses for so long that I had no idea what style of top would suit me now. As much as I like saying up yours to the restricting, shaming plus size rules I don't feel comfortable in tight top with my tummy on show. I went out with my husband the other day in a really pretty camisole top that was slightly tighter than I normally wear and as silly as it sounds, the fact that I didn't feel comfortable in it really put a downer on my body image that day. It's nice to push the boundaries and venture out of your comfort zone sometimes but only if it makes you feel good, not just for the sake of it.

This cute parrot top ticks all my comfort boxes. The swing style means it's roomy around the hips so doesn't cling and the cross back detail makes it just a bit more interesting. I got my usual size 24 and found the arms quite big and I had some excess material round my boobs so it may be worth sizing down. With the parrot print it felt appropriate to pop in a hair flower!

No eyeliner, argh!

  1. This is super cute on you! I'm enjoying your foray into trouser territory! xx

  2. Your top matches your hair, it looks nice. Xx

  3. You look fab! Love the coordinated shoes and bag. xx

  4. Love it! I recently bought some black skinny jeans and have really struggled with tops as well, the only trousers I've worn in the last few years have been pj's! This top is cute though, will have to have a look at New Look! xx

  5. Lovely! I'm wearing jeans and jeggings a lot recently and I'm always conscious of tops that don't cover my tum no matter what, it just makes me uncomfortable. I've found the longline vests Evans do are good. I wish I could get in this parrot top! So pretty! Beaut as always <3
