B-day party outfit!

full plus size outfit by Simply Be and wide fit heels by New Look


Two weeks ago, we celebrated my nieces’ birthday. They turned 6 and 8. I wanted to wear something dressed-up but comfortable, so I could play around with the birthday girls.

When I went shopping in Liverpool mid-September, I visited Simply Be. I absolutely love this store. It has a wide range of hip and trendy plus size clothing. And they also sell wide fit shoes up to a european size 43 (size 9 UK). Unfortunately, Simply Be is not available in Belgium. But, if you happen to be in the UK, I suggest you stop there for a visit. You can find them in most UK cities.

I saw these black coated jeans at Simply Be. They have a little stretch and are so comfortable. I absolutely love these jeans! Plus, the coating gives it an extra edge, not like denim, not like leather but something rather special. They are just fabulous! The petrol blue wrap blouse, by Simply Be, is also a great piece. It looks so good on these plus size coated jeans. Exactly what I wanted, dressed-up and easy going at the same time. All that is missing are some great heels. I spotted these navy heels in the sale selection at New Look for only 10 euro. What a steal and such a perfect match for this outfit.

In pants I have a European size 48 (size 20 UK). When I fitted a European size 48 with Simply Be they were to small, I needed a European size 50 (size 22 UK). I believe Simply Be comes out to small in sizing. These pants are stretchy and are super comfortable.

In Belgium you can’t order from Simply Be, so I’ve found these great plus size alternatives:

  • At Paprika, this is available in stores in Belgium or online for 60 euro, also available in dark grey and blue. Find it here.

The tops at Simply Be are small to size. I’ve chosen a size 16 (European size 44) it’s a bit small around the sleeves but a size 18 (Europeans size 46) was too loose around my waist.

Not available for Belgium, but I’ve looked up some plus size alternatives at Zalando. I think that almost all colors complement black, so you can chose a wide range of blouses to go with the pants.

Take a look at the plus szie alternative tops:

  • By Evans via Zalando for 32 euro, also available in cream, white and black. Find it here.

Navy wide fit heels by New Look.

These are wide fit European size 40 (size 7 UK) heels by New Look. Personally I find that a wide fit in heels is more comfortable. Regular fits tend to be too narrow or become uncomfortable when I wear them all day. If only a regular fit is available, I would choose a Europeans size 42 (size 8 UK).

I am a European size 41, according to their size guide that’s in between a size 7 UK and 8 UK. I’ve ordered at New Look in the past and know that a size 7 UK fit me just fine.
TIP: go fit some shoos at New Look stores, remember what sizes fit you well in heels, flats and trainers so you know what to order online.

Unfortunately these shoes are sold out! Check out these great wide fit alternatives:

  •   At New Look online for 14 euro, also available in black and gray. Find it here.
