Lust List: My Top Picks from Simply Be this Summer

Simply Be was the first plus size brand I was really introduced to in the UK. My mum has always been a fan of catalogue shopping, and when I went to her place I would flick through the Simply Be catalogue bending down the corner of the pages I wanted stuff on. Lots of fantasy shopping back when I was too poor to do any actual real shopping. In the past few years especially I have found that the Simply Be fit has improved loads and every season there is more and more I want to wear. My brother is getting married in the Caribbean in November, and so I am constantly on the trawl for gorgeous summery pieces to take with me, and I was having a little wander through their website this weekend and found some awesome stuff. As I haven't done a lust list in a while I thought I would put some of my fave pieces from Simply Be together for you guys...

Summer is not complete without a beautiful white dress, and this maxi is just dreamy - perfect for the beach, and can be dressed up for the evenings too.

There's denim everywhere at the moment, and I love this take on the denim dress because I am a sucker for a shirt dress. Such a great look - I would put that tie in my hair and add a tan belt instead, and maybe some cowboy boots. Yeeha! 

This is a bit more of street take on the denim trend. I love this casual look, and I have always loved a pinafore dress - totally 90s.

More white cotton dreaminess - again, perfect for a beach holiday. And going into Autumn this would look fab with a jacket and brown leather boots. Dreamy. 

God I love a lace dress. And a plum lace dress is even better. This is such a romantic piece, and another one that will be great to transition between summer and autumn. 

This jumpsuit is wonderful. I love the strelitzia (or birds of paradise flower) print - it reminds me of my home in South Africa as the gardens in Durban were filled with them growing up. And it just looks so cool and casual. Plus my bae Lottie Lamour rocked it earlier this season and look amazing!


I know it's long sleeved, and completely impractical for a beach holiday, but this dress makes my heart sing so I am adding it to my list anyway. I don't need anymore red dresses. But I waaaaaant it! 

Have you been shopping with Simply Be lately? Where do you go for your holiday favourites? Lemme know...


  1. that frill sleeve lace dress is amazing! I can see you rocking so many of these. I love detail that is a bit different :)

    1. Me too. I love it when you can see that a designer is trying something new, and it just works!

  2. The white dresses are delightful - if only there were a beach holiday somewhere tropical on the horizon for me!

    1. Alas mine won't get much wear until November, but then it's gonna be fab! Xxx
