WhatLauraWore: Prints, Missguided & Lulu Guinness

Plus Size Printed Trousers from Yours Clothing

NEWS FLASH: My favourite Missguided boots have gone into the sale for only £12 and I've just found out that they're available in two other colours too!




I know I've talked about these boots a few times since I got them this winter but today I just had to share with you this outfit post that features them and to show you some additional up close shots of my fave footwear.


Plus Size Printed Trousers from Yours Clothing

Lets start off with the outfit which was very much centred around the Purple Floral Print Woven Harem Trousers from Yours Clothing that I picked up for an absolute bargain price in their sale.  I was attracted to them immediately because of their gorgeous deep reddy purple colour with the beautiful grey, black and pink floral print on them.

Last summer I loved wearing printed harems but they were the jersey or cotton style whereas these are woven so there isn't any stretch in them.  The woven material makes them look a lot more dressy and perfect for an evening out whether they're paired with heels or boots like I have done here.

Since they are woven, I needed to size up in order to accommodate my stomach and I'm pleased that I did as while they do have a drawstring waist and the back part of the waistband is elasticated, they don't have that much give in them.  This ultimately meant that the legs were a little large on me and that the elasticated cuffs didn't fit as they should but I don't feel as though this detracts from how gorgeous these trousers are.  Harem trousers have more of a casual look about them and these ones are effortlessly gorgeous.

Since the trousers are such a statement piece, I wanted to keep the upper part of my outfit plain and simple.  I pulled on my ASOS Curve Exclusive Swing Vest which I've had for the last couple of years and its still going strong, although it does tend to photograph a little see through!

My jacket is a new one from Yours Clothing.  The Black Edge To Edge Waterfall Crepe Jacket is one of those fabulous pieces that instantly pulls together an outfit.  Brilliant fit, the material doesn't crease and it always looks smart.  This has to be one of my best fashion buys in months.  It is made of a lightweight crepe fabric and features panelling detailing, non offensive shoulder pads that really help the jacket to maintain its semi-structured shape and 3/4 length sleeves that look effortlessly chic.

I love the waterfall front of this jacket the most because it is really flattering and easy to wear.  I don't like wearing jackets that I have to button up all that much because I find them more restricting whereas this one is so comfortable regardless of whether I'm sitting, standing or walking around.

When I ordered these trousers, I thought that my burgundy floppy hat would be compliment the outfit well.  I've worn this ensemble a few times now, some times with the hat and sometimes without and I must admit that I usually make my mind up based on what the weather is like and whether my hair is freshly washed or not!

Keeping the black theme running through the top of the outfit, I took my Lulu Guinness black clutch out with me as it is plain in colour but the shiny perspex and the lips shape add something a little quirky to the outfit.  I ordered mine from Luisaviaroma with their free express shipping.  I couldn't believe how quickly it took to arrive.


Grey Nubuck Rose Buckle Ankle Boots from Missguided

Now onto my favourite part, the shoes.

These are the Rose Buckle Ankle Boots from Missguided.  I have them in the Grey Nubuck colour which is so beautiful and stylish.

These are the first pair of ankle boots that I've owned with a cut out detailing and I was really surprised to like this feature as much as I do.  I love the buckle that secures them at the ankle too which helps them to feel even more secure on my feet.

It was love at first wear with these boots as they didn't take any wearing in at all and have been so incredibly comfortable from the word go!


Grey Nubuck Rose Buckle Ankle Boots from Missguided

The shape of the boots themselves is excellent because they slope down gradually and your foot is fully supported, particularly at the heel, rather than focusing all of your weight on the balls of your feet.  This helps to make these the most comfortable pair of heeled boots that I've ever owned.

I think that's also down to the thick chunky heel and the comfortable sole.  At 3.3" high, these boots give me a good bit of additional height without being painfully high and the sole is very substantial meaning that they don't cause me any pain in the balls of my feet when walking around all day in them.  Sometimes I find that when the soles of shoes are too thin, I can feel every bump in the ground which can really hurt after a while but not with these.
