Outfit- Little Mistress Curve dress from Simply Be!

Back to Monday and back to reality for me after a weekend away in Lincoln to attend a wedding! I knew that this was probably going to be the last chance I would get to really dress up this year, so I wanted to choose something beautiful. In the end I settled on this lovely Little Mistress Curve dress from Simply Be!

Outfit – 90’s Vibes feat Simply Be!

I bloody loved the 90’s and when catching up on my fave blogs, I was inspired after seeing an outfit from the lovely Lottie L’amour – check it out here – the other day to get my 90’s on! so here it is my Outfit – 90’s Vibes feat Simply Be!

I loved the cheesy goodness of the 90’s and I love it even more since I’ve grown up and I can dance around my local nightclub to The Spice Girls at 3am in 90’s night! In all seriousness though, I’ve been searching for the perfect cami dress for a while, so when I saw this Strappy Shift Dress in the sale st Simply Be for £10, I knew I had to give it a try.

I chose to wear it with a plain white t-shirt underneath, this one is from Next, but it really does look great on it’s own too. My Socks are old from Primark (I think) and my shoes are from New Look. I added my leather look choker also from New Look to add even more of a 90’s vibe!

Outfit feat Boohoo Plus!

Happy Monday Guys, today I thought i’d share a little outfit with you all! I’m excited to show you this outfit, featuring a bodysuit from Boohoo Plus!

A few weeks back, the hubby and I went to see The Stone Roses in Manchester! After booking the tickets last November we were really excited that it was finally here! We went over to Manchester in the afternoon and had something to eat before trying to make our way to the Ethiad Stadium for the gig! We wanted to get there pretty early as The Courteeners were supporting, another one of our favourite bands!

I chose to wear this cute bodysuit from the Boohoo Plus range with a black denim a line skirt from New Look Curves. My black velvet mary janes are also from New Look, though sadly not avaliable in wide fit. I added this black bomber jacket from Primark and the choker from New Look gave my outfit a 90’s edge.

The skirt I bought instore, but the Boohoo plus bodysuit I had to buy on ASOS, as it was not avaliable on their website for some reason!

I love Boohoo Plus, I have a few items from their range, more specifically I am in love with their bodysuits! I just wish they had buttons to make going to the bathroom slightly easier!

It was such an amazing evening, seeing a band that I started listening to when I was about 14!! I loved every minute and I’m sure we will cherish the memories forever!

Pretty Floral Skirt from Yours Clothing!

Morning! Today I thought I would share this pretty floral skirt from Yours Clothing which I picked up recently!

The Plus Size of Life Pretty Floral Skirt from Yours Clothing

I bought this skirt a while back on my first ever trip to Yours! I love the print and it stood out for me straight away. The material is lovely to touch it’s so soft. The skater style is so full, It’s super girly and I always get a lot of compliments when I wear it.

Here i’m wearing it with a long sleeved bodysuit from boohoo, this one is an extremely low cut style and I can’t be that daring so I just have a plain black vest on underneath it to take off the edge! This skirt can really be worn for anything and with anything, it’s so versatile!

I have spotted a few other skirts in Yours that I have my eye on at the moment, I think one in particular may make it onto my list for Santa!

Both items are also currently on sale!

Skirt – Yours Clothing

Monochrome – Work Outfit of the day!

Hi everyone, late post for me today. I didn’t have time to take any photos of my outfit before I left for work at 6.20 this morning, but here I am with today’s outfit of the day! So I wore this monochrome look. It’s  so classic, it always looks smart however you wear it and whoever you are!

I love this cute blouse, which has lace detail to the shoulders and a high neckline making it perfect to wear in the office. I paired it with a black, textured A line skirt which has become a staple of mine for work, It’s so easy to wear with anything!

I like to wear something to cover up while I’m sat at my desk because it can get quite cold, so this waterfall blazer works well for that and adds a smart feel to the whole look!

Outfit August! Pop of Colour!

OUTFIT AUGUST 500 WIDE

Hello everyone, I know I haven’t posted for a few days, I got incredibly sun burnt on Saturday which meant I felt ill all day Sunday and I just did not feel like sitting at the computer, but here I am for another Outfit August post.

Today was the last day of my holiday from work, so I decided to head into leeds for a few bits for my little one, she needed some clothes because I seem to seriously underestimate how fast they grow!  It was a grey and rainy day so I wanted to bring some vibrancy to it with my outfit! It did brighten up later on and I was able to go outside and snap some photos.

I wore a really cute grey Pussy Bow blouse from TU at Sainsbury’s. It’s quite old, I bought it for a Job interview last year, but I love it. You can’t really see the pattern from the photos, but it has little white flowers on! I chose to wear this wine coloured skater skirt, to add a pop of colour!

SAM_1103

The skirt is alot brighter in person, for some reason the photos haven’t quite captured it right, plus its a lot redder and I think these photos make it look purple! I do wear this skirt quite a bit. I wear it out but it’s easily dressed down for a day look, the material is so light and floaty. I got it in Primark a few months ago, I think I spotted them in the sale today and they come in a big range of colours.

My shoes I have featured a lot, they are from ASOS, I believe you can’t go wrong with a good patent shoe!

I would love it if you would check out all the other lovely ladies taking part in Outfit August below 🙂

Outfit August! Delightful Denim

OUTFIT AUGUST 500 WIDE

Hello everyone, I hope you’re enjoying your start to the weekend!

I have had such a nice week off work, so today we just relaxed and because it was such a nice afternoon we went for a walk in the woods!

2015-08-07_17.03.08[1]

I wore this delightful denim dress from Simply be, I have had it a while but it is perfect on a sunny day. I wore it with my Primark Gladiator sandals, which I have had for a couple of years now. I very rarely have my legs out, but it was a must on this gorgeous day!

In the Bag! what I wore to my Job Interview!

You may or may not have seen on twitter that I have recently been offered a new Job! It’s safe to say that I am over the moon about it.

But before the Job offer comes the dreaded interview, I am a firm believer that answering the questions is only part of actually succeeding in getting the role and that it important to dress the part as well.

When it comes to choosing an outfit to wear to a job interview, I follow two rules,  keep it smart and keep it simple. By this I mean don’t turn up in an extremely casual look, and go for block colours if you can and avoid any outlandish prints. You don’t want what you’re wearing to distract from what you have to say.

SAM_1001

I went for classic monochrome, wearing this wrap front blouse by George at Asda with a black tube skirt from Primark. I chose to wear flat shoes from ASOS, but small kitten heels would work here just as well.  I chose a simple statement necklace and kept my hair out of my face.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much getting this new job means to me. I’m just so excited because it means that I will be able to share a lot more outfits on the blog because I no longer be restricted to a uniform everyday.

What would you choose to wear to an Interview? Do you think it’s a big part of receiving a Job Offer?
