Happy Autumn everyone, I love this time of year so much. I love the colours and of course there is Halloween and Bonfire night too! James and I were invited to a wedding in the lake district last weekend and being plus size I was really struggling to find something to wear I would feel comfortable in. When I was asked by Navabi if I would like a dress back at the end of September, I knew I had to choose something for the wedding!
Navabi is a plus size clothing company, that stock 10000 styles for sizes 14+. They have an amazing variety of plus size dresses to suit any occasion and budget and I for one was pleasantly surprised by the range they had to offer, from designer brands to their own line there really is something to suit any ones taste. Having never shopped with them before I was in awe looking at all that was on offer on the website and managed to choose a dress I loved fairly easily using the filters you can apply on the site. I will just add here that Navabi don’t just sell dresses, they have everything from coats to knitwear and skirts to trousers so make sure you check them out if you are looking for something new to add to your wardrobe.
I chose to go with this Annalisa V Neck Midi Dress as I already had the perfect shoes to match and when it arrived I was not dissapointed. It is a lovely midi style dress in a light grey, with a full pleated skirt and I just knew it would be great for the wedding so I decided to save it until we attended!
After wearing this all day and night I can now say I love the style of the dress so much, it was incredibly flattering and it suited me perfectly. The sleeves certainly helped in the cold and the length was just right, although I am pretty short. We were day and night guests, so this dress was perfect for both, I could sit comfortably in it during the day and then dance the night away at the evening. It was so comfortable and felt so beautiful!
I chose to wear a pair of block heeled sandals which are old new look, Snag Tights and added a bag from Misguided. Looking at the photos now, I am so glad I pushed myself for something in a lighter colour other than my usual choice of black or navy.
We had such an amazing day, the hotel and grounds were just beautiful and of course congratulations again to Mr and Mrs Trunkfield!
Do you like my choice of dress? What would you choose to wear to an Autumn wedding?
*This dress was kindly gifted by Navabi but all opinions etc are my own. The dress is the only gifted item featured in the post, everything else was purchased with my own money 🙂
