On my blog and on social media in general, it’s very easy to hide behind a false front of “perfection.” Being a blogger doesn’t always consist of fancy dresses in front of picturesque cityscapes, or luxury afternoon tea at the cutest local bakehouse. Bloggers aren’t always ON, you know? Sometimes we’re off-duty. Sometimes (read: most of the time) it includes sitting at home in comfy clothes with a cup of coffee and a laptop. For me, it also includes breaks to play Tetris on my phone, haha! I’m big into Tetris, you guys! 


If you follow me on Twitter you’ve probably seen me moaning about anti-cold shoulder I am. 99% of the time, that’s how I feel. For SOME reason though, this cold shoulder jumper won me over. The colour is my absolute jam, and it’s so comfy. I sized up so it would be on the baggy side, and I’m super pleased with the fit. I appreciate that it has nice thick straps where my bra sits as well. 


I’ve never worn leggings from Yours before, so I wasn’t sure how these would fit. The mesh lining in the high waist helps keep them from rolling or sliding down, which is fab! I’m on the short side (5’4”) and these are a bit long on me. They do the thing where they gather a bit at my knees and ankles, but since I’ll mostly be wearing them around the house or under boots it’s no biggie!


Yours DO offer leggings in 28”, 30”, and 32”, but not in the style I was looking for. I’ve also worn these to the gym (with the cross back top from Black, Like My Coffee) and they didn’t roll down while on the elliptical. I’d say that’s indicative of a pretty good fit! 


I dunno about you but I’m SO looking forward to the next day I get to spend reading in bed. I’m back to uni in about a month, so I’m trying to do all the recreational reading I can before I have to do educational reading every night. Ah well, gotta get that degree!
