Style: Away days and hand picked outfits

So you might remember last week I wrote about my experience with the new Evans Shape Stylist service. Today I’ve got a couple of pieces to show you from the recommendations my stylist made. When I used the service I spoke about our planned weekend away and how I’d like some pieces for that, this is what my stylist came up with.

This grey marl swing dress is perfect for dressing up or down, it’s fine knit texture means you can layer it up which is great whilst the weather is still so changeable. I teamed mine with a leopard print scarf, ponte treggings and ankle boots. 

In my infinite wisdom, I sized down to a 20 as I sometimes find when Evans goes into its dual sizing (grrr) the 22/24 can be too big, on this occasion I think I should have stuck to my own size as the 20 is a little snug, but it’s fine, I think I got away with it! 

I also picked up this grey check collarless coat, which I’d seen on Em a while back and fell in love with. It goes perfectly with the swing dress and will be great to throw over most things this winter. I like it because it’s really versatile, it’s going to look just as good with jeans as it is with a more dressy outfit. 

I’m wearing the 22 which I found true to size. It does zip up, I have no idea why I don’t have it zipped up? Haha! It’s a soft, fluffy texture and the zip is concealed so it looks really clean and tailored when on.  

I’ve got a couple more pieces to share with you through the week, including an awesome bronze shell top that’s pretty special.

    Thanks honey, I bought this top today and 20% off – bargain. I went for the 20, I'm usually a 22 but I know what your mean about the sizing. Keep up the good work for all us big, sexy babes x
