Autumn Colours with SimplyBe

High waisted jeans, a berry blouse, brown leather ankle boots and an orange leather purse. Perfect combo.

Hands up if like me you are always feeling your wardrobe is in need of an update. I hate clothes shopping at the moment. I’ve put on quite a bit of weight since having children and just don’t seem to be able to find clothes that suit me. In particular I hate jean shopping. Sizes vary so much. In the average shop I’m a 14 on top and a 16 on the bottom. I’ve currently got a pair of size 14 jeans from one shop, a size 18 from another and most recently the comfiest jeans I’ve owned in a long time from Simply Be. Then there’s shopping with a toddler, I don’t think I need to say any more on that subject, I think most of you have been there!

So I don’t want to go to the shops, that leaves online shopping. My issue with this though is that shopping online predominantly means viewing clothes on tall slim models. Yes, they look amazing and pretty much anything looks good on THEM. But I am not tall and slim. I’m 5ft 4in and a size 14/16. So often I’ve bought clothes that look great online and then when I try it on I am left incredibly deflated and the clothes have been promptly returned.

Then I came across Simply Be, part of the JD Williams group. I can’t say that I’ve ever really taken the time to browse their website until recently. The recent ad campaign #WeAreCurves really made me think about how I view myself. They really celebrate curvy women and show that we can all dress in gorgeous clothes. Even better they have a large collection of accessories and a blog too.

Check this little lot out.

Autumn colours, I love them. So rich and vivid. I think the dark berry colour of this top is just gorgeous.

These jeans are high waisted and stretchy. One problem I always have with trousers are the petit range are focused on women under 5ft 3in and are therefore a tad on the short side. Regular length trousers are too long and I so often end up turning them up or have a length of ugly gathering around my ankles. These jeans were perfect in length and fit like a glove. I love dark denim and these jeans are so comfortable.

This purse I just had to have. Again, with the love of autumnal colours I adore this vivid orange. It’s made from genuine leather and feels so soft.

Please note I was gifted the top, jeans and purse for the purpose of this review. All opinions are honest and my own.


    • It’s so hard to find a pair of well fitting jeans at the right length. I’d love to find some flares or wide leg trousers but never had any success due to length! Maybe I should find someone who can sew to alter them? x

  1. Ooh that’s such a stylish look! I am 5ft 4 too and have the same problem with jeans. I love a high waist after the having of all the babies too! You look fab lovely! Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x
