Introducing: Polly Grace's Tee-shirt challenge

I was recently contacted by plus size brand Polly Grace who set me the challenge of putting together a look featuring a top or tunic from their current range.

 I like a challenge (I would totally be on the Crystal Maze if it was still around and if I wasn't almost certain it would kill me...) so I chose the Catalina* tunic top, partly because Catalina is the name of my smallest and most irritating cat and partly because I was taken by the bold floral print.
Catalina Tunic Top* - Polly Grace
Ripped Joni Jeans - Topshop
Block heeled sandals - Primark (Available up to a 9) 
I styled the tunic with my old favourite Joni jeans from Topshop which are still going strong (despite me extending the rips on numerous occasions because I have flippers for feet and am not cool enough to wear yoof clothes without sabotaging myself and demonstrating how middle aged I am) and my bargain £7 block heel sandals from Primark, which I have picked up and put down three years running before finally giving myself a talking to.

I wore the outfit for Sunday lunch with family and other than a few comments around me "falling of my bike" (Ripped jeans are beyond my family's comprehension...) it was a winning look: Comfortable, fun and stylish.
All items as above
As always, my opinion is generally "f**k flattering", however, if flattering is your style then I have to say that the dipped hem at the front and back is exactly what you need in your life. I was concerned that the double layer and cut would be a bit too busy for me but it's actually a really simple way to add a bit of interest to an outfit.

It is also ideal for all ages and body shapes - For example, my Mother in Law tried this on, she is  5ft 4, tanned, a slim size 14 with narrow hips (Basically: NOT ME) and she also looked utterly ravishing - In fact, she's going to borrow it for her holiday to wear around the pool with a pair of shorts.
All items as above
I went for a 16 in the top and it fits very true to size on me. The only thing I would say to take into consideration is that the arm holes are on the smaller side. I personally like this with the Catalina tunic as I don't like when an arm hole hangs lower than the side of my bra on looser tops. However, I know for a lot of women this can be pretty frustrating - so maybe size up.
All items as above
Polly Grace have a huge range of plus size clothing, with many items going from a 16 - 32, as well as accessories and jewellery, such as the gorgeous Tula necklace below:

In fact, I also have a pair of Polly Grace's black leggings which are fab so expect to see them featuring on here very shortly!
