Another year, another Autumn has come around and thank god for that. I say this every year in a blog post, so forgive me for repeating myself but I love Autumn and I love Autumn style. I can’t deal with shopping for summer outfits, I still think plus size really struggles with the concept of summer, it’s the same array of tees, knee length denim shorts and kimono’s year in, year out so even though I love the sunshine, I’m happy to see it go and the Autumn trends start dropping.
Cardigans, darker tones, layering, coats, tights and boots, bring it all on, I’m here for it and yesterday I felt like I finally got to dress for Autumn (even though it was 18 degrees and pure sunshine).
It’s also that time of year where us girls chunky calved girls start the endless search for a pair of boots that will actually fit our shapely legs. Over the years I have discovered a number of places that create wide calf boots to fit my 20inch calves and have luckily acquired a number of pairs that sit in my wardrobe eagerly anticipating September to come back around. This pair from Wide Calf Boot Store shall also now join them all and become a firm favourite in my closet. They have a range of wide calf boots in UK sizes 3.5 to 9.5 and going right up to a 24 inch calf. In these pictures I am wearing the JJ Footwear ‘Galena’ in Brown in a UK size 6, in a ‘XXL’ calf fitting.
Oh and I’m also dead pleased that I finally got myself a new hat after I left my last beloved one on a train and never got it back! I do love me a statement hat!
