If it weren’t for our desperate need of rain here in Cape Town, I’d say I wish the weather could always be like this. The skies are sunny and it’s warm enough to be out in a t-shirt, but not so hot that you get all sticky and flustered.
I find dressing for this season a challenge though – my winter staples are all far too warm, but those flimsy summer dresses aren’t quite cutting it either. At the same time, I want to get my last few ‘frock days’ in before I have to reluctantly bid them goodbye until warmer days are back again – let’s just face it, this plus size fashionista is really not a pants person.
On one of my recent perusals of Queenspark (which has REALLY upped its plus size fashion game) I found this satin bomber jacket, and although a little out of my usual style scope, I quickly fell in love. Turns out it’s been the perfect thing for the season – just the thing to go over a t-shirt when the day starts chilling off, or even over a warmer jersey if it’s proper cold. I love that it can be dressed up or down – a really versatile piece.
I had a bit of fun styling it somewhere in between. Check out the images below, and let me know what you think 🙂
