I have a vision in my mind of what I want to look like. A memory even.
A floaty creamy white top perhaps with some embroidery, a clog style wedge, a long necklace and boot cut jeans. The jeans would be tight on the thighs, not too tight on the tummy and have a noticeable flare at the ankle.
I once had this outfit but children and eBay have parted us (no, I’m no longer a size 6)
I have the shoes. I won’t know which ones are perfect until I can try them both (one pair of them are currently MIA) but either my Swedish Hasbeens or higher Sam Edelman Warners will be right I’m sure.
I bought this top in Zara a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the jeans to wear it again. I also tried a white shirt on in New Look yesterday which might work. It’s so rare that I find a shirt that does up I was quite excited and for £12 I couldn’t resist. (I am still looking for something creamy and more smock like though)
The Beths are far softer than the Evas. I made a mistake again – Hudson sizing is crazy! I wear a 27 in them when in real life I’m a 12 / Zara L. I forgot and ordered a 29 which were gaping at the back already. They are a more relaxed fit than the Evas and would be forgiving on larger thighs I’d think. They’re also longer. More of a relaxed flip flop jean perhaps.
The Oasis Evas are over half the price of the Beths (even though I got the Beths with 50% off from House of Fraser) They are more structured, a higher rise though still not high rise but more mid rise which is flattering but comfortable on a big belly like mine. They don’t have the back pocket details like the Beths (which is a good thing for me) and have a crease down the front which I love.
I’ve taken crap photos. There is no proper natural light (it’s so grey today), I have a cold and four new cold sores to add to my extensive collection. I am not in the mood for trying on clothes. I promise to take better photos in days to come.

These photos really are dire, I’m sorry. If you’re considering either and have any questions please do ask.
