*AD-gifted clothes samples
We love the outdoors. Here in Cornwall, we have cold wet Autumn and Winter seasons so you need to dress accordingly. As a plus-size woman, I sometimes struggle to get comfy outdoor wear that is good quality and will last. I was offered the chance to browse online at Regatta Great Outdoors to see what I could find useful for this Winter. Here are my women’s comfy Winter outdoor clothing ideas.
I’m not a natural model by any means, and I lack confidence so you don’t see me in a lot of photos, but you get the idea of what I’m trying to get across in these below!
With a large top half, I struggle to find jackets that I can zip up if I have a bulky jumper underneath. This one is a generous size. It’s a gorgeous rubberised waterproof raincoat jacket in a transparent ceramic mint colour. It’s perfect for the school run as it repels water, has large pockets for the keys, and has a peaked hood! I’ve discovered it’s vitally important to have a decent waterproof jacket for the school walk every day, twice a day. My old one leaked!
I love a good old woolly hat. It’s needed for the coastal walks by the sea and the countryside rambles when the wind is blowing a hooley!
I always feel the cold, so a gilet like this black blackcurrant fleece one is perfect for keeping my core warm. It’s ideal to wear under a jacket when the temperature drops, or over a hoodie or lighter top/jumper.
My favourite things to wear are hoodies. Easy to pop on and they go with jeans – my choice of casual wear. I particularly like this shade of khaki, which is great for Autumn and a redhead like me! It’s super soft, lightweight yet warm and comfy. I don’t normally put up the hood unless I’m caught out in a shower, but this one is really nice with the wraparound hood design with a tonal drawcord adjuster.
It was totally coming out of my comfort zone to pose for these photos, but I did it. Now imprinted on my blog forever!! I need to get Mr B trained in photography – he’s very tall and takes the photos from his view, hence the looking down at my position! Oh, and if you love my brown boots, as much as I do they are from Hotter – last year’s Autumn/Winter range. There are so comfy and perfect for wider calves.
