A few months ago our very own Yours clothing store arrived in Taunton, and although I’ve popped in a few times, I was yet to make any purchases, until a couple of weeks ago.
I’d been online and seen a jumper, a longline snuggly jumper, with cut out sleeves and a bit of a cold shoulder look about it which I’m really loving this Autumn. As I’ve never tried Yours before I wasn’t too sure what the sizing would be like. So I decided to check in store, and they had it in navy. I’d been lusting over the orange one but unfortunately this was an online exclusive, so I tried the navy on, and I loved it. Although a little long I decided to go for it, as it would be perfect as a jumper dress with a pair of tights and ankle boots. Such an easy piece to throw on when I’m in a rush on the nursery run, and just perfect for day to day.
I don’t know if anyone else has found it, but I decided to try a few other pieces and for this 5ft 6 momma they all seemed a bit oversized, and a tad long, considering in most high street stores I’m a size 16/18. I do however think Yours is perfect for the taller lady, with so much variety and maybe if I was a couple of inches taller they would fit perfectly. I bought this jumper in a 16 and was £23.99 and it’s really is lovely, you can’t beat a chunky knit! It certainly hasn’t put me off, but I think I will be trying before I buy, always.
I also picked up the most lovely oversized scarf, with a navy and red check, it matched the jumper so well and also looked so snuggly. It was just £12.99 and for an everyday accessory I thought was a bargain! I’m all about the cosy life ladies! I pair the scarf with so many other pieces in my wardrobe too.
So for any of my plus size ladies I would definitely recommend popping into your local Yours clothing store to see what key Autumn/Winter pieces you can find. And as always I’ve linked the key pieces below, if you want to check them out for yourselves!
