H&M Scarf

Whilst out browsing for a new purse the other week, I popped into H&M to see what I could find. To be honest, it's not a shop I usually go in due to their size range, but have been in there with my daughter and cousin (skinny girls lol) before. So I had a quick look and they didn't really have anything I liked in regards to purses, but then a certain scarf bought my eye. I had planned on getting myself a nice infinity scarf this autumn to keep warm, and I really liked the look of this one.

 It's a knitted scarf with black and white wool, which gives it an overall grey look. I thought this would go with most outfits, which I am please to say it does! It is a great length, even for me, as I have found infinity scarves in the past to not be long enough for my large neck. This is a great length as standard, and I can wrap it round twice for that snuggly cold day.

I have been wearing this scarf most days of late as the weather has turned nasty and cold, but I don't mind as I love it. So soft and warm, and I think a great buy at £12.99. I think I'll definitely be popping into H&M more often to see what other accessories I can get hold of.

DP Curve

I was flicking through a magazine at work earlier this week and saw a big spread on the new Dorothy Perkins line.... and to my shock is was a plus size range! I used to shop in DP when I was younger, and a bit smaller, but haven't been in there, let alone bought anything in maybe 10 years. So I decided to have a peek, and I was pleasantly surprised. There is a nice range of bottom, tops and dresses, from size 18 to 28, and I have chosen my favourite few pieces to share with you.
First up is this grey and white 2 in 1 top. I have always liked this look, with a long shirt underneath a jumper, and I love the grey jumper. I would love to team this with some black skinny jeans and comfy shoes, and maybe a good colourful statement necklace as a focal point.
Next thing that caught my eye was this dip backed top in a light grey. I have been looking for some oversized tops to wear this autumn and this looks like it would be really comfortable. I like the 3/4 length sleeves and the scooped neckline and think it would go well with some leggings for a casual look.
Now i'm not sure if these would suit me, but I love the look of these treggings with a wet look. I think they are a lot more dressy than 'matt' leggings and could jazz up any top. Hopefully they have a bit of stretch to them!
Last but not least, there is this cute little black dress. I love the cure lace trim detail around the arms and bottom of the dress. This is a really sweet dress that you could dress up for a Christmas party, or make it more casual for an evening out with friends.
There is currently an offer for 25% off on orders made before midnight tonight, so hurry and take a look..... I think I'll be making a cheeky order this evening!
