Tartan trend - my choices

I am sure by now you are all aware that tartan is the word when talking about fashion trends this Autumn/Winter.
I am not yet 100% convinced that I will get into it as the pattern and colours are not my favourite choice or combination (maybe because I am Spanish and I kind of feel the tartan is a very British thing?!?).
Anyway, I have put together some choices and the link below should you want to order anything.
I have seen the Pinkclove dress in many bloggers and I have to say is my favourite item from all the ones below.
1. Asos curve tartan leggings
2. Asos curve tartan shorts
3. Pink Clove tartan dress
4. F-troupe tartan lace up ankle boots
5. Skater pull on tartan skirt from Yours Clothing.

Have you surrender to the Tartan trend? Which is your favourite item?

Wide calf winter boots take 2

Hello my lovelies,
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
It is getting chilly and this autumn I was on a mission to get some winter brown leather boots. 
My calves are probably one of the fatter parts of my body, and together with my arms my least favourite part.
I have bought knee high boots from Evans before but when I browsed their Autumn/Winter collection I wasn't very impressed by their variety and also they were more expensive than other retailers like Simply Be.
I see many fellow plus size bloggers buying lots of stuff from Simply Be but for me was only the second time. My first time was only a couple of weeks ago when I also bought a pair of winter boots that didn't fit properly but taught me how Simply Be's sizing work. You can read my previous post here.
This time I went for a different model of boots which zips instead of the pull up ones. 
I went for the riding style and the original price was £80 (but I did have a 10% discount code) but now they are even cheaper reduced to £68 so I am considering getting the black ones.
This time I ordered a size 5 in the Super Curvy calf fit (1 size smaller than the previous ones) and they fit perfect! You can find them here Legroom Riding Boot Super Curvy width EEE fit.
I am so happy with this boots, they are so comfy and the fit and quality are superb.

And you, do you also struggle finding boots that fit your calves?

Black and gold OOTD

Hello ladies and gents,
I don't normally wear all black but I really like how this look turned up when mixing the black with gold bits and accessories. Below are the details from the items and if you scroll down you can see me wearing them!
Black wet look skater skirt from Yours
Longline Lace insert blouse from South

Tights of course are from my online shop Miss Difusa
The blouse is from South from Littlewoods and has now been reduced to £15, available up to size 24! I think the sizing is true to size and in my case I went for size 20, I say size up if you have big boobs.
The skirt from Yours is great, elastic waist so super comfy, also size 20 true to size.
The tights are probably the best ones fitting wise from the whole range. They have an elastic waist so they don't roll down your knees and they are very long so taller girls should also be ok.
The shoes are from last year from Love Label, they look great but they not that comfy unfortunately.
I have to say that I haven't been hanging many pics lately on instagram/facebook but I am still getting use to my new super short hair and I am not sure I like it...
Anyway, have a nice week!
