OMCZ #23


Happy New Year! The first day of 2014 starts off with a OMCZ challenge post.

This week was the turn of Betty from BigFatBetty, this is what she choose as her theme:

Challenge: 'Pretty Pencils'

Pretty Pencils': I absolutely love pencil skirts but I've never had the confidence to wear them, what with the VBO and all that jazz. However, I've just ordered a beauty and I could really do with that push in order to wear it...let me see all you lovely ladies rocking your pencil skirts, get those pins out and share your style tips (as I also have no idea what to wear with the damn thing)!

I don't actually own a proper pencil skirt so at first I was a bit unsure of what to wear. I then remembered my trusty old black jersey pencil skirt. I bought this about 6 maybe even more, years ago from the plus size range, Grace at Sainsbury's.

Top - Pinkclove
Skirt - Sainsburys

The skirt sat in my wardrobe for at least a year before I had the confidence to wear it. I love that the material is thick, that its stretchy and the right length. I think its safe to say that this is definitely a staple item in my wardrobe!
Don't forget to have a look at the other lovely ladies taking part!


  1. I love that peplum top on you Nat. I might have to indulge in one of Pink Clove's peplums. Unlike many others they are long enough to cover up a tum. x x

    1. Thank you. This one is definitely my favourite as it fits well and goes with a lot items! Perfect!xx

  2. You're looking beautiful:) I think pencil skirts are so nice on plus sized women. :) Love your peplum too. xx

  3. Lovely from Simplicity to the Casual classic.

  4. Stunning! That top is brilliant and goes perfectly with the skirt, great outfit. I've seen a couple of ladies now with plain black pencil skirts and I really want one x

    1. Thanks! There are quite a lot of nice black ones around, I have my eye on a few! x

  5. You can't beat a good wardrobe staple. you look fab and I wouldn't have though about wearing a peplum top.


    1. I know, it's always good to go back to something that I feel comfortable in x
