What I Wore - Plus Size Fashion Post #Lauralaura

Guys it’s here. My first ever fashion / what i’m wearing / outfit post. I’m a bit nervous and extremely excited to share it with you all.

What I Wore - Plus Size Fashion Post #Lauralaura

I never knew what I wanted my first one to be, apart from that I wanted it to showcase what I really do wear on a daily basis. I was then approached by Kmart about their jeans range and how their jeans are affordable and have an amazing range of sizes. I was so excited because the perfect opportunity for my first fashion post had just landed in my lap!

Kmart has a fantastic range of denim styles heading into the cooler months – with a colour, a style and a fit for everyone! So, after the Easter weekend I went along to my local Kmart and had a look at their huge new range of jeans – all of them for under $25!
Talk about great.
I chose this pair of Lift and Shape jeans in Navy (they also had these in Black) to take home with me. They’re so comfortable and were super affordable.

I hadn’t ever really wanted to do fashion type posts until I stumbled across Baby Rebel Blog a long time ago. I have since then met Georgina and we’ve grown into good friends and shes slowly but surely helped me build up to this post today.

I exclaimed on twitter that I was super nervous about doing a post like this, I’m not hugely proud of my body or the shape that it’s currently in, but i’m making slow steps to get it to a healthier and fitter position before I focus on how it looks.

I would love to hear your honest thoughts on LauraLaura having posts like this in the future, as a web developer my wardrobe is a little bit limited but it is what it is, and thats me!

This post was made possible by Kmart, which means the voucher I received for the Jeans is for: my time, writing, researching, and editing. Not my opinion. All opinions are and always will be, my own.

  • You look so cute! I badly need some jeans, think I’ll head to Kmart this weekend (and try to get out without spending $100, I love that shop!)

    • It’s really really hard to not spend up a storm in there! FYI they have a kitchen section that has utensils and stuff all for $2 šŸ˜‰

      • ehrmagerd!!!

      • Okay, so I went to Kmart today and bought some jeans/jegging-y type things – they look like jeans but have an elastic waist band. I also got some work pants, two t shirts and three pairs of undies for under $70! How good is that šŸ™‚

  • Kate Tovey

    You look super HAWT! Love it and please keep posting more! <3

  • I love this post! And that it’s affordable clothing as well – Kmart is one of my fav go-to shops for clothing :).

  • LOVE this post Laura! You look great and kmart is amazing, I can never leave there empty handed!

  • I’m such a Kmart addict, they have some great (and so affordable) pieces. I am totally putting my hand up to say more WIWT posts, because I love seeing what other people are wearing šŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much for your comment Meagan, you are a total inspiration to me with your fashion blog and to have you say ‘more please’ is a huge blessing! x

  • Christel Hansen

    BEAUTIFUL!!! Love this post, and love your outfit. I’m all for comfy and affordable – my motto is life is too short to wear ill-fitting, uncomfortable clothes. šŸ˜›
    Kmart is pretty much the best thing ever and is the only shop I think I’ll miss when I move up north! NEEDS MORE WIWT POSTS oxoxo

      I’ll definitely be doing some more, it was actually lots of fun! You guys should totally do them x

  • Abigail Rose-Marie

    I love this. So often these posts are super high-end, which is also beautiful, but not so easy to replicate all the time. This is great.

    • Thanks Abigail! It’s true, a lot of the time I look at fashion posts and then go WHOA at the price tag – I can understand one piece here and there or for a special occasion, but not every day wear. Well, especially not at the moment anyway! Maybe if I won lotto x

  • Helllloooooooo hot stuff <3 I absolutely love this post. I'm like a proud mother duck watching her duckling fly for the first time. All the emotions. You look absolutely beautiful!

  • Cute outfit it looks comfortable and stylish, I love outfit posts!! Can’t wait to see some more from you. xo

  • You look great!! Good on you for taking the leap and doing an outfit post. I’ve been thinking of doing it for ages, but I feel like all I wear is jeans and t-shirts, and not feeling 100% confident about my body. But this inspires me and I’m considering it again. Thank you <3

    • Thanks so much Tallulah.
      You definitely definitely should do one – while I was nervous, it was super fun doing the photos and seeing how they came out! x I really hope you do!

  • You look great honey – stylish outfit, loving, I repeat loving, the price tag too! Thanks for doing this and do more of them. By the way your makeup looks smoking hot too x

  • No one can tell if those jeans are expensive or not. The finish of the jeans and fit look great. Kmart is my obsession. They have such amazing things I’m there almost every weekend. I’m mainly obsessed with their homewares but I have bought clothes and ridiculous amount of socks from them for awesome prices.

  • I love this Laura, you are lovely inside and out x I am a bit of a babyrebel fangirl too!! shes so styley!

  • Laura, you are stunning! I always really like style posts. It would terrify me to do my own atm, but I’m so glad you’ve taken the leap! It was a great decision!

  • I really enjoyed this outfit post! You are gorgeous and I love your writing. As cheesy as it sounds, your beautiful personality really does shine through in it. I neeeeeeeeeed that cape & the jeans look super comfy! xx

  • Kate Tovey

    If the 32 COMMENTS aren’t enough – you need to post another one of these asap!

  • You babe! Love the lippy!
