Sunshine After The Rain - Keeping It Cute with Yours Clothing

The end of January and start of spring are both finally within reach, and it feels like the grey, gloom filled days are finally starting to give way to something more cheerful. Of course here in the UK that still means wet, rainbow filled skies interspersed with rain, but a mixture of sunny blue skies and torrential down pours is still preferable to the long dark nights and icy wind storms of late. As such, the humble rain mac is an essential item for anyone wanting to keep their hair free from precipitation induced frizz, and Yours Clothing have released the cutest one possible - one which I am so in love with, I've taken to building some of my outfits around it!

This Red Coated Mac With Striped Lined Hood is just the right side of cute. Available up to a UK size 32, the bright red fabric is coated for fast drying, and features a lovely nautical stripped lining giving it a whimsical edge. I felt a little like a Wes Anderson character the second I tried it on, and was all ready to pack up my record player, kitten and compass to run away to the woods.

I paired this dress with the coat because the striped design reminded me off it's cute nautical lining. Plus anyone who regularly reads my blog knows that I am a total sucker for pockets, and it treads the line between feeling both casual and chic. I sized down as I often find Yours dresses to be on the generous size, but probably should have stuck with my usual size on this one as it's a little tight on the bust. But not enough that it'll stop me from wearing it, as it's the perfect spring dress in a sturdy jersey material.

This skirt and top combo give the coat a completely different feel, and I adore the almost rockabilly feel the movement in the skirt brings! Cut in a skater shape from a textured fabric, the elasticated waistband gives the illusion of an hour glass shape and paired with some cute ankle boots is the perfect date night outfit.

I purchased these boots just before Christmas and have pretty much been living in them ever since. They are available up to a size 10EEE, didn't need time to be broken in, and the classic Chelsea boot style flits between smart and casual with ease. The tights are also from Yours, and sit just under the bust line offering a smoother silhouette as well as keeping my body warm! And as if the hosiery gods have granted some sort of plus size tights miracle, they sit where they are meant to, and actually stay up!

I feel that with this mac, I am now completely ready for the spring showers. I'm definitely ready for the longer days and rays of sunshine, that's for sure! Let the countdown to spring officially start!

Until next time,
