So, I was planning a super awesome blogging comeback, bought a snazzy new theme from Pipdig, got all motivated… Then I didn’t blog for nearly a month. TYPICAL EMILY.

Hi, I’m still alive. I started an intercollegiate MA at King’s College and UCL, it’s been manic. This is literally my first actual day off in a month, because I’m at work whenever I’m not at uni, but today’s class got cancelled, yay! I’ve got 5-7 hours worth of Greek homework to do by Friday, but for once I’m going to spend some time blogging… Priorities.

I am by no means a ‘fashion blogger’, mainly because I’m not photogenic at all, and I get really embarrassed whenever someone takes photos of me. HOWEVER, today I’m sharing some cute as hell jackets from Simply Be, who were kind enough to let me pick out a couple to wear this Autumn. I didn’t think I’d find anything to fit me, because Simply Be are a plus-sized brand, but to my surprise, a lot of their clothes are available in sizes 8-10 too!

Firstly, I picked out a black denim jacket with embroidered roses on the sleeves (£49), which I’ve been living in for the past month. More on that in my next outfit post, because this one is all about the duster coat I picked, in a lovely, muted-rose shade (also £49). I wasn’t 100% sure about this when I tried it on, because these styles usually look best on long-legged, super slim bodies, and I’m a 5 ft 2″ curvy gal, but it does look nice over jeans, or a smart outfit.


I have several thick winter coats, so it’s nice to have a thinner jacket on those typical London Autumn days of both rain and sun. I can also bring this back out in Spring; the pastel shade is perfect.


Outfit Details

  • Striped top from H&M, £7
  • Ripped girlfriend jeans from H&M £29.99
  • Shearling heeled boots from New Look (about 5 years ago)
  • Tweed handbag from Joules last year, £69.99




Whether you’re plus-sized or not, check out Simply Be for some lovely autumnal coats and jackets. They also do free next day delivery, which is pretty cool!
