The Last of The Summer Swimwear!

Swimsuit: c/o Boohoo Plus. Necklace: Charity Shop. Scarf: H&M (old). Shoes: Primark. Sunglasses: Specspost.

I'm back with one last swimwear post for you! I'm genuinely really gutted that summer has basically gone now as I'll have to pack away all the fabulous swimwear I've gotten this summer! Normally I'm not a big fan of summer because I'm naturally a warm bodied person and summer just makes me uncomfortable but now I've embraced my body etc I've much more comfortable this time round! 

When Boohoo got in touch with me back in September asking if I'd like to take part in a little stunt with them involving their plus size swimwear I basically jumped at the chance! Unfortunately it had to be cancelled but they were nice enough to still sent out the pieces for us to keep and put up on our blogs. I decided on this swimsuit which unfortunately has since sold out on the site but they do still have some really cute ones available including the Miley Tie Detail Bikini and the Plus Leila Detail Crop Bikini which you can see below.

This suit is really cute and comfortable to wear. Like I so often do with Boohoo I sized up to a UK22 but it seems for the swimwear range it seems that I really didn't have to as this suit is actually a little too big for me on the bum and back. I've also done a YouTube video with this which you can hear more of my thoughts on this suit there. This also has no padding at all which for some of you I'm sure isn't a problem but I prefer it, luckily I'm a dab hand with a sewing machine and can pop some swimwear cups in. I'm wearing a bra under this for the photos as I didn't want and accidental flash and so not to terrify any of you! 

Overall I'm looking forward to what Boohoo Plus will bring to the table for next summer and I'll remember that it runs true to size, I've also got a really cute OOTD coming soon featuring Boohoo.

Flourish of Summer with New Look.

Playsuit: c/o New Look Inspire. Bag: (old) Primark. Necklace: Online. Shoes: New Look. Sunglasses: c/o Specspost.

I genuinely do feel this may be the last flourish of summer but what an outfit to have the last gasps of potential sunshine in?! I was lucky enough to receive a bag full of goodies from the Inspire range at New Look and this fabulous playsuit was one of the items. I really love playsuits but so often they don't really love me (#shortarseproblems) This one however fit's me surprisingly well! The waistband isn't riding up and the short style bottoms aren't too long or too short! Another plus to this is that it's super comfortable and easy to get on and off, I'm sure lots of you reading this will know the struggle of wearing a playsuit and needing to pee, sometimes they're so fiddly that you basically end up half naked in the cubicle! 

This Playsuit isn't currently available on the site but if you'd like a bargain I think it'll be in the sale in-store and it's definitely worth the rummage through! Here I'm wearing a UK20 and I'd definitely say it runs true to size as it doesn't cling to any of my lumps and bumps which is always good. I styled it up with my Primark gold satchel which I unearthed from the back of my wardrobe and bargain shoes I picked up myself from New Look earlier in the year for the price of £3.00 I love these so much that I bought 2 pairs! My hair is loose waves racked over my head to produce more volume my hair because I'm having a phase where it just not really doing anything and driving me mad! You can check out my film of this look on my YouTube Channel here! 

Have you checked out the latest pieces from New Look Inspire? I'm currently lusting over this Skater Dress as it would be perfect for work as it looks really comfortable and I just love the tie detail at the back!

Love Is Love.

Tee: Dom&Ink for Rock on Ruby. Leggings: Matalan. Sunglasses: Claireabella's Closet. Bag: Primark. Trainers: Converse.

This is just a quick post to show you what I wore while I was away on Holiday (I know it seems like forever ago now!) I was bit of a bad blogger while I was away and hardly took any photos of my outfits at all, even though I had my trusty photographer (older brother!) with us for the week! These were very quickly taken when we were visiting Woodbridge in Suffolk. We always try to go at least once while we're away as it has some brilliant charity shops and it's a pretty nice place to just wander around. 

As soon as I saw the Dom and Ink Collection at Rock on Ruby I knew I had to get at least one top from the collection and this one just spoke to me! I've known about Dom's illustrations for awhile and   I just adore them so when I saw there was a chance I could wear them emblazoned across my chest I had to snap at the chance! Here I'm wearing a XXL but it's actually much more generous than I expected it to be so I think I could even just get away with a L depending on how relaxed a fit you wanted, but I just love it so I don't care anyway! Dom also has a seriously awesome book out called Map My Style which is currently on offer and you can get it here! 

I'm currently also lusting over this "Lets Make Out" top and think it may JUST have to be my next purchase!
