I first spotted this skirt (and statement necklace) on the Primark website when they released a Q&A session with the gorgeous Victoria from InTheFrow.com – it wasn’t available in stores but Victoria had chosen it to showcase some of the new Autumn/Winter range and I was desperate to get my hands on the floaty organza number. I ended up visiting a couple of different Primark stores multiple times, when one evening I finally spotted it and had to get my hands on it! When I got it home I didn’t have a clue how to accessorise it. I stumbled across a couple of looks that worked really well with clothes that I already had in my wardrobe when I suddenly had a brainwave… What about my underbust corset!?
Sometimes it’s nice to just stick on a pair of jeans rather than prance around in pretty dresses and today was one of those days! I’ve had a lot of problem with jeans recently, in that I have bought 3 pairs from Select Fashion and the zip has broken on every single pair. When I was younger my go to place for jeans was Dorothy Perkins, but since I had some vouchers from Evans leftover, I thought why not give them a try. I am so glad that I did!
When Curvissa got in contact with me to see if I wanted to be involved in a 5-way review of the Ostrich Textured Clutch Bag*, I knew immediately what I wanted to style it for! Valentines Day is approaching this weekend and although my husband and I don’t really celebrate it, we are going out for a meal at Nandos (my choice) during the next few days. I’m a firm believer that you should show your significant other that you love them every single day, not just February 14th!
As soon as I lifted my spending ban, I felt completely relieved. I also felt like I had suffered withdrawal symptoms (yes I know, this is bad!) and after 23 days of not spending, I gave up. This quickly followed with a shopping trip to my nearest Primark and just to wind me up even more, I couldn’t find anything I loved enough to buy! I wandered around the shops, feeling a little glum and had nearly run out of places to visit when I suddenly thought, what about Asda? I needed to get some food anyway and sometimes you can pick up some lovely clothes.
I think I might have a bit of an obsession – floral dresses! Recently I’ve tried to change things around a bit with my style and wear more suitable clothing for the weather but no matter how many times I dig my jumpers out of the wardrobe, I always seem to get back to a floral dress. I even find ways to make them winter proof, like adding a warm cardigan or smart coat. I purchased this floral dress a few months ago from Select as it was a style I had previously worn in a mint green colour and I knew the colours would be perfect to wear during the Autumn.
Primark has become one of my favourite places to check out, mainly because of the products changing so quickly but also the price. You just can’t go wrong! Primark was never a place that I could shop in easily due to the sizing being all over the place but it’s become my new guilty pleasure as you’ll have noticed on my Instagram if you follow me!
It’s taken me a while to get decent photos of this outfit, but I think it was worth the wait. With all of the dismal weather we have been having, a floral dress is the last thing I’ve wanted to put on but yesterday we had a spell of sunshine and it so happens that I was also going to see one of my friends (who is an awesome photographer) – perfect timing! I have lusted after this Pink Floral Print Chiffon Dress ever since it was launched by Yours Clothing. Part of the Hayley Hasselhoff Loves range, Yours really shined with this collection and there were a number of pieces I was coveting. I knew it would be the kind of dress that could be worn to posh events with a smart jacket or faux fur coat for winter, or dressed down with a denim jacket / cardigan. I figured that the denim jacket was a safer option with the interchangable weather and I think this look works really well.
