I’ve written about this before but it’s on my mind again. I’ve never been super skinny but always happy ish with how I looked and was quite confident in my body. Since having the ankle biters I’ve lost all confidence and hide away in my comfort zone of the same clothes all the time.
Yes I grew two beautiful humans , I’m a mum and I shouldn’t be body shaming myself but I also think I am entitled to say I’m not happy with how I look. I don’t have to be proud of my body just because it housed and grew two babies as I’m proud of that fact for many other reasons. I want to be fit and healthier for them.
I have tried dieting many times and do really well then life just gets in the way. I’ve had a bad day with the ankle biters so I’ll reach for the choc , meeting up with a friend child free so we will have the biggest slice of cake and a naughty coffee. When I’m winding down after a busy day I’ll reach for the wine then when the weekend has come I want a break from cooking let’s have a Chinese you know that kind of thing.
There are little things that make me feel better about myself though I was recently gifted a gorgeous coat and boots from Yours Clothing which are a plus size fashion store that start from size 16 and go up to a size 36. Their clothes have definitely made me fall in love with fashion all over again and I have a huge wish list now Christmas.
I chose the burgundy cotton parka with faux fur trim hood this is so good with the weather getting so cold at the moment. I wanted something comfy but till on trend for the school run and those mountain walks we love. The coat has such a comfy and warm shearing lining. I love the fur on the hood which is also removable and I’ve had so many comments on how lovely the colour is. I’m in love with this piece.
I also chose the black ankle boots with tassels which are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned they are like slippers and they go with everything. I really like the little tassel on the side as it adds a little edge to them. They come in a wide fitting too.
I will definitely be ordering some more from Yours as they have really given me the confidence post I needed.
*I was sent the coat and boots in return for an honest review , all thoughts and opinions are my own.
