Long Tall Sally Autumn/Winter Collection

by Bex

As I mentioned in my recent post, I picked three fabulous items from the new Autumn/Winter range at Long Tall Sally.  Unfortunately since they've arrived, it' been rather lovely warm weather most of the time and not at all autumnal!  I've struggled to get out in all the layers to get some decent photos but my lovely father in law obliged on a chillier, sunny morning this week!  The babies also got in on the act for added cuteness ;)

The High Rise Flare Jeans are my favourite.  I only have one pair of pre-pregnancy jeans that fit me at the moment but they end up making a shelf for my belly which is highly unflattering along with general muffin top issues limiting what I can wear with them as it has to be very long and very baggy!

Also, Priya's just learned to kiss (with her mouth wide open)!

These new flares are high waisted so they are much more comfortable as well as being very flattering, holding in my tum.  They have a really good stretch in the denim so I bought size 16 which is still a little snug so they'll hopefully still fit if/when I finally manage to shift a bit of this belly!  Of course, the best bit is the length!  I have their shortest length at 34" which is perfect for me as I can't wear very high heels anyway but the 36" would be ideal for me with platform heels and they even do 38" for super tall ladies.  The next time I need a pair of jeans, I'll definitely be heading to Long Tall Sally, in fact I've actually ordered a pair of their skinny jeans which are super soft and stretchy (I tried them on in store but wanted a different colour).

I also love the Crochet Insert Smock which is the perfect long length (for wearing with those other jeans while these are in the wash!) and super soft.  The sleeves are perfect for dealing with babies as they are elasticated at the wrist so there are no dangly cuffs to get accidentally dipped in anything nasty!  Like the coatigan, it adds a little something to an otherwise basic outfit with the pretty crochet detail.  It's also long enough to wear with leggings but is flowy enough to wear with a maxi without looking entirely shapeless.

I always find the sizing generous in Long Tall Sally (I've recently been a size 20 for patterned trousers in Primark and BHS) so I would size down if ordering from the website.  I was surprised that the smock fitted me in size small (especially with my larger than normal breast-feeding boobs!) and the Coatigan in medium (the small fitted but was tight on the arms and I prefer coats and cardigans to be a bit looser).  All of the items feel well made with luxuriously soft fabrics - I can't stand itchy cardigans.

I actually had trouble deciding which items to add to my wish list, I was tempted by the suede brogue boots, the soft legging jeans in Khaki and these comfy trainers.  If I still had my old waist, I would have definitely chosen this green kimono dress!

I've also ordered myself a couple of other items from the website which I just couldn't resist now I'm starting to feel a bit more like my normal self after these last few months of new twin mummy mania!  These grey wedge ankle boots are pretty gorgeous and very comfy for when I just want to look a bit smarter now I can no longer live in sandals and flip flops.  I always struggle to find comfy boots which I can walk all day in.

*Disclaimer: I received the three items above from Long Tall Sally to review but my opinion is honest and entirely my own.  I have been a fan of Long Tall Sally for a number of years and genuinely love their clothing.

You look awesome, I love those jeans! If you're looking for jeggings, I have the £35 ones in claret and I've barely taken them off since I got them, the fit is perfect. Now I need all the colours of course ;)
