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!

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!

Jord Watches.

Leave a Comment



Converse: Kurt Geiger. Sunglasses: Prescription from Specspost.
 Ely Watch: c/o Wood watches by Jord.

Back when it was still really summer (which in the reality of things wasn't all that long ago!) the fabulous people from Jord Watches offered me the opportunity to review one of their pieces and however generally speaking I'm not normally a watch wearer when I saw this Ely watch in Red Sandalwood  it was love at first sight! These watches are so well made and not at all uncomfortable to wear, they don't catch and pull my baby hairs on my arms or cut in. I feel like a proper grown up with this on (which is a rarity for me!) 

I wore this a lot while on my family holiday in Suffolk and these photos were snapped on our last full day where we went to the beach and flew a kite and not any old kite but one that resembled an aeroplane to the huge excitement of the toddler sitting nearby us, lets just ignore that I'm 22 and my brother is 25.... I'm hoping to include this in more outfit shots in the winter months as I think it will look simply stunning against a knitted jumper sleeve and layered with some of my vintage bangles, which I only tend to wear in the winter as wearing lots of jewellery annoys me when it's hot! Also there is now full outfit shot as it was so windy that on any of them I'm pulling really weird facial expressions. Some would say they're excitement but to be honest I just think I look a little crazy! 
I've found that this Jord Watch really compliments the vintage aesthetic I like to go for in day to day life as it's still looks classic but with a modern edge. 

These are not only for women but they also have the most stunning Wooden Watches Men

Lipstick Loving with Lovedrobe.

Leave a Comment





Tunic: c/o Lovedrobe. Jeggings: Matalan. Clutch: Birthday present.  Flatforms: Next. Glasses: Max&Co at Specsavers. Belt: Asos Curve.


Before I type anything else I just want to say I LOVE THIS TOP/TUNIC
the print is my ultimate dream, I'm sure you're all aware by now that I'm more than a little addicted to lipstick and any print related to it and this is to die for. So when Lovedrobe asked if I'd like to review something from their site I knew it HAD to be this Lipstick print chiffon tunic. With it being chiffon I was worried that I'd get too warm in it as I'm just a really hot blooded person and always boiling but surprisingly for me this was fine! I decided to order a 22/24 as I wasn't sure on sizing and in the past I've usually had to wear a UK22 with Lovedrobe but I think I'd have gotten away with the 20 in this. However I do like it being more oversized so I can belt it and wear it with leggings. The sleeves are elasticated at the bottom with means you can roll them up like I have here or have them sitting on your lower arm. 

Here I've dressed it up more but I've also worn it with a scruffy pair of converse when I've been running errands so it's really versatile. I'm hoping to go out for drinks in Manchester soon with one of my old friends and I think this top would work perfectly with some wedges and a (p)leather jacket. If you can't tell I'm totally smitten with this and I will definitely be keeping an eye out on Lovedrobes website to see if they bring anymore super cute prints out! This look is also over on my YouTube channel and you can check it out now here!

Fatkini.

3 comments



Bikini: c/o Swimsuitsforall. Kimono: c/o Yours Clothing (old) Sunglasses: Red or Dead at Specsavers. Shoes: Evans.

This is my last of swimwear posts in collaboration with Swimsuitsforall unfortunately I've been a little slow with this one and the two piece has since sold out, however this little number is the same cut and style. I've said in pretty much every post I've done on these guys at how much I've genuinely loved each piece and that I've felt surprisingly comfortable in them and baring my chubby self and this Bikini or "Fatkini" is no different. I feel confident and comfortable and really wish the weather was still good enough to go to the beach!  I'm wearing either a US 18 or 20 here and they fit really well. Again I love the high waisted bottoms as they go over my belly button as the lower part of my stomach I don't exactly wish to show off as it's probably my least confident area. The top is comfortable and more supportive than a more basic bikini as it has underwires, it doesn't however give a good cleavage which is a pro or con depending on what you're looking for in swimwear!

I kept the accessories to a minimum but decided to opt for a cover up as it was colder than it looks on these photos and also because I thought this kimono from Yours would look really cute with the bikini! My sunglasses are pretty old from Supersavers but I love the chatty shape and the two tone colour! I've also filmed a YouTube video along with this which you can see here. (my hairs down in it as I thought it looked better, way prefer the bun though!)

Getting Curvety.

2 comments




Dress: c/o Curvety. Necklace: Topshop. Shoes: Amazon. Sunglasses: Specspost. Hair Flower: Dorothy Perkins.

I took these photos only a few days ago yet it feels forever since it was sunny, I suppose we should get used to it now summer is fading! Anyway I digress when the fabulous team over at Curvety got in touch with me to ask if I'd like to review something from them I just couldn't refuse! Lately I've been wondering at my wardrobe whether I should include some more grown up and timeless items into it and I knew this Igigi Angie Dress would be a perfect addition. It still has an interesting print which you must know by now I'm always fond of but it's a little more classy and well timeless, the tie sleeve details also add some extra cuteness without being OTT. But what really won it for me was the fitted v-neck and the overall cut of the dress itself. It's fully lined and extremely well made but as it's not the cheapest dress on earth I'd certainly expect nothing less. My only slight negative is that the dress is pretty snug and though I'm perfectly comfortable wearing the UK20 here I think if anyone is more insecure about lumps and bumps being on show I'd recommend sizing up. 

I decided to keep it classy with the rest of the styling and had my hair in loose 1940esque waves with a little hair flower to complete the ribbon in my chain necklace. I thought this dress deserved some form of heel so I added some of my favourite wedges which I also have in black! You can also see the full look on my YouTube Channel where I've began posting OOTD videos etc!
