WhatLauraWore: Ann Harvey at Bon Marche

Ann Harvey at Bon Marche Plus Size Blogger Review

Earlier this month, Mr WLL and I headed to the Manchester Arena to see Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live.  I managed to bag us front row tickets which I thought would make the perfect birthday gift for him as he loved the show when it was on and we’re both big fans of Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness.

The show was fabulous show, except for the fact that I was picked out as part of one of the acts and out up on the big screens in front of 14,000 people, how embarrassing!  I was already anxious to begin with as it was so busy but after that, I was absolutely mortified. Haha trust me!!  E I’m laughing about it now but at the time I wanted the ground to swallow me up.  That’s the last time I sit on the front row!

We were travelling down from Newcastle and I knew that I wouldn’t have time to get changed before heading out to the show so I wanted to wear an outfit that was comfortable but still smart for the show.

This was what I picked:

I opted for a simple all black outfit which seems to be a staple for me right now and then I popped on this gorgeous Mosaic Floral Cover Up by Ann Harvey.  They’ve just relaunched their collection in its new home, Bon Marche, and it is beautiful.  What I like the most about it is that there are lots of coordinating pieces and items in complimentry colour palettes so you can really mix and match pieces to create a multitude of different looks.

The brand is aimed at the slightly more mature customer and the pieces that are in the collection are so fitting because theres such a wide range of styles and patterns within these colour palettes that you can create a capsule wardrobe from.  A lot of women are looking for high quality pieces that are worth spending their money on because they’ll last for years to come and that is the quality that you’re going to get when shopping from the Ann Harvey collection.  I’d really recommend it.

This cover up is ideal for throwing on over a maxi dress or top and trousers combo.  It is light weight but excellent quality.  There isn’t anything flimsy about it and it washes really well.  I love the the print and the mix of colours and the waterfall shape is really flattering, particularly if you have a large tummy like I do!

I paired it with my favourite black clutch and silver jewellery.

    I really love this outfit, from the beautiful kimono to the shoes that I would never wear because they have a heel but still cute. You look beautiful with long hair

      Thanks Filipa. These shoes are surprisingly comfortable because they have a platform and a thick heel. All heels tend to hurt me though! xxxx

    I love the coverup. It really pulls the outfit together. I'm pregnant ATM and find it hard to shop for maternity clothes as there's not much choice. This kind of coverup is something I could wear now as its baggy and you don't have to do it up. http://www.delaldesigns.blogspot.com

      I absolutely agree honey, there's so many cover ups and kimonos available and they're usually oversized so you could get them now and still wear them after baby is born. Congratulations on your pregnancy and I wish you all the best for the birth xxx

      Thanks Nicol. I would have totally thought you'd suit florals! Perhaps try florals on your bottom half like a skirt or hareem pants, see if that would work xxx
