ONE DRESS THREE LOOKS: LOOK THREE

 

So here's the 3rd and final post from this 3 part series. For those of you that have already checked out look one, two or both?! Welcome back! If you have only just dropped by and would like to get up to date with the previous looks then please Click Here:
 
Here I've just layered the dress with a black blazer and nude accessories for a day to night kind of look where I'd probably switch the heels for converse or gladiators.
 
This look is by far my favourite look of the three, I think its the blazer, I just feel so confident when I'm wearing it. I love perching my jackets on my shoulders like a true fashionista. It's so versatile and would definitely be on that list of "things you couldn't live with out if you were stranded on an island".
 
 
 What's on your list of what you couldn't live with out? I would love to hear your comments on which was you preferred look and how you would style a denim dress?

ONE DRESS THREE LOOKS: LOOK TWO

ONE DRESS THREE LOOKS: LOOK ONE

 
Today I'm welcoming back the 3 look series, where basically I style 1 piece 3 different ways. Obviously I wear all my wardrobe in different ways but some pieces stand out more and I have lots of ideas how I will wear it.  

Today is The Denim Dress. Now if you already have a denim dress or even playsuit this will still work for you.
I picked up this gorgeous denim dress from the Primark in Selfridges a few weeks ago for £12, bargain right?! (I spotted a Gucci dress at Bicester Village not so long ago that was practically identical) I love the lace up detail against the denim. I've been really looking forward to wearing it but we have had rain every day since so it’s remained in the bag.
Here I've gone for a super casual sporty kind of vibe, teaming it with a bomber jacket and baseball cap.
What do you guys think of this look?

BOOHOO - Body Confidence


I’m so excited and a little nervous to share this post with you as it’s a quite a personal one.

The lovely guys from BooHoo contacted me asking me to collaborate with them on their Body Confident Swimwear campaign which has been created to encourage girls to feel happy and comfortable in their own skin. Obviously I say yes!

I think this is a fantastic campaign and very important. As an online influencer I see so much stuff being thrown around on social media, diet teas, waist trainers and contour(and NOT just on the face but the body too) in my opinion this crap is recipe for confidence demolishment and it needs to stop.
"The Beach Body" is thrown around so much at this time of the year and 6 months prior girls are trying to create this “Perfect” body for what?! A week’s holiday where you are meant to relax and have fun with your girls (or guys).

I’m not saying fitness/exercise isn’t important, but it shouldn’t be focused on just because you want to create a body that we are all forced to believe is ideal. The mental benefits and a healthier lifestyle, so you feel happy about YOU is what’s important.

I myself have recently gotten into fitness, I’ve always been a size 8 so it was never about losing weight or looking good to other people, I wanted to feel better healthier for myself. From this I have definitely found a new confidence, knowing I’m being healthier and treating my body right.
I’ve always felt quite insecure about scars on my legs from shaving accidents and being an over active kid, definitely a bit of a tomboy. Not only that I’ve always felt that my body was a little out of proportion as I have massive calf’s with arms like pencils. I also have a bit sticky out belly button and once upon a time I wouldn’t have gone anywhere near a bikini. At one point I would have done anything to change all these things and believe me there is more, I probably have a list as long as my pencil arms (just kidding) but nowadays I’m really not too bothered.

I mean what would you rather be doing picking fault with yourself or getting your bits out in Santorini? I know which one I’d be choosing.
My body…On a beach…..now that would be “PERFECT”!

 Would love to hear your body confidence stories and what makes you feel beautiful.

THE ODD ONES OUT

 

If you are anything like me, you might have a wardrobe full of odd bits that you bought with no idea what you’re going to where them with?!  
I don't know why I do it, don't get me wrong I don't like to waste money on clothes and I will eventually get round to wearing them.

The shoes and the shorts are some of those bits. 
These gorgeous knee high snakeskin gladiators I recently picked up in the ASOS sale for a fraction of the price. I wasn't sure how I was going to style them as they are a bit of a Marmite shoe and could quite easily make an outfit look a little trashy.
Here I've teamed them with a simple off the shoulder top and these white shorts with lace detail which again have sat in my wardrobe with no outfit to call their own. I bought these off eBay (search lace shorts and you should find loads) about 2 summers ago and they have never seen the light of day.
I think this is going to be one of my go to summer outfits, perfect for a day to night look, I’d probably switch the shoes for converse or sliders for a more casual day look.
