Another day in the life of a housewife living in the Mojave desert. I wore this to go pick up pizza and do errands at the Dollar Store!

Anyway, to beat the summer heat – more t-shirts and more shorts! I got these Old Navy shorts recently when they went on sale at $8 (originally $22.94) and like my cuffed denim shorts, they are a LIFE SAVER! I think the cuffs actually make them more “polished” if I can use that word to describe it. More, you know… dressy and less sloppy? What do you think?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey TENNIS band tee

Accessories: Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN; Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARK, Black bow headband with skull & crossbones from FOREVER21

Bottom: Barnswallow (That’s a COLOUR??) Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Tan Bow-Tie Ballet Flats from OLD NAVY

To market, to market… to buy a fat pig… Except not. I’m vegetarian. I’m pig-friendly these days. But yes, this is what I typically wear when I do my grocery runs. Either shorts or leggings – depending on the weather. And either a t-shirt or a tank-top. I typically go to the supermarket about once every 7 to 10 days ALONE because T says his feet aches when he walks for too long on flat ground (as opposed to undulating terrain like when we’re hiking). Just as well, because I like to take my time and go round the aisles twice in case I miss out on a good deal. So yeah, this is my Housewife of Las Vegas ensemble. HAHAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey TENNIS band t-shirt

Outerwear: Dark grey cardigan from LURVE HANDLES

Accessories: Natural bamboo weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP; Pink Skipping Girl brooch from ETSY; Brown slim ribbon belt from LURVE HANDLES

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Brown heeled clogs from OLD NAVY

Oh BTW, check out LURVE HANDLES, a new PLUS SIZE Online Store based in Singapore – don’t worry, they ship internationally too. They stock sizes from UK14-20 and prices range from S$12.50 for basics to S$45 maximum for dresses – that’s really decent right?

The grey cardigan fits really well across my shoulders (17″ across) even though the sleeves are a little long for me (because I have short limbs in general). My shoulders are actually a lot broader than my hips and I’m an inverted triangle so the length of the cardigan is great for hiding my weird proportions. The belt however was too big for me. It’s a little over 53″ long and the first hole is at 44.5″ so if you’re a UK16 like me, you’d probably need to add more holes to get it to fit right.
