Printed Co-Ords for the win.


Sometimes you spot things online/in store and you just fall in love instantly. This is what happened when I saw this printed co-ord. It's in your face, you'll definitely see me coming and you all know that's the sort of thing that makes me tick! Why hide away just because you happen to be fat?

I love buying a two piece like this because there's scope for building multiple outfits with each of the items. I originally tried the bomber on with my fave green maxi skirt, loved it and I've since tried the trousers with a roll neck and I'm also a fan. I'm sure you'll see me wearing these pieces a lot on my various social media platforms.

With regards to size, I bought the 22 in the trousers and a 20 in the bomber and the only grumble I have about this set is that neither the top or bottoms have pockets... wahhhhh why oh why wouldn't you give us pockets?!

A quick note about my lipstick. I have legit become obsessed with Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks and tend to wear the mauve shade 'Baci' everyday. For this look I mixed a dark red called 'Rubino' with the lighter shade and it made this glorious colour which matches my co-ord perfectly in my opinion!


What do you think about printed co-ords like this? Are you fan or will you be giving them a miss?

2017, Let's Go...at your own pace.


Well here we are ladies and gents. It's 2017 and we've all been waiting for it with baited breath. How do we feel... excited? Ready and raring to go? Or are you scared of whats to come and you're still glued to the sofa?

I've had a very slow start and I think it's due to the fact I'm 30 and can't party like I used to haha. A hangover really affects me now a days and seeing as I went for it on NYE; I've been struggling ever since. I'm half ready and raring to go and half scared to venture outside and face real life.

I keep reading all these positive, life affirming blog posts and I've bought the life planners and new stationary for all those lists I should be writing but I'm not quite ready yet. That's ok right? I've got another 350+ days ahead of me and I know once I get my ass into gear; it's on!

If you're feeling like me and you're not quite there yet; it's ok. Take your time and don't beat yourself up about the fact you haven't got your shit together, you're still in the same pants as you were wearing on NYE and that new 'To Do' pad is still empty. We all go through life at a different pace and even if it feels like everyone around you is speeding off and already achieving great things; just know there are others around you *like me* that need a little more time.

We'll get there and it'll be beautiful. Hey, it can't be any worse than 2016!



Here's a cute outfit I shot just before Christmas but true to form; I've only just gotten around to posting it!

Pleated Party Wear


A strong AW16 trend that cannot go unnoticed is the pleated skirt. If you haven't seen them online/instore/on your bestie or all over your Instagram newsfeed; then where the hell have you been?

I find that these skirts are so easy to dress up or down. They are really versatile and if you haven't invested in one, I suggest you give one a go; I don't think you'll be disappointed! The most common way I have seen these skirts styled is with a pair of flats, brogues or even trainers work and worn with a classic, round neck jumper. It's such a simple, chic look and one that I think I will be channeling come Christmas Day!

If you want to vamp up the pleated skirt and wear it to the office during the day and then to the Christmas party in the evening then simply glam up the footwear and accessories! It's as simple as that.
 If you like a heel, go for it but to be honest... if there's a free bar to hand, sometimes flats are better anyway! These skirts suit ankle boots as well and even knee high boots. I told you they were versititle! I glammed this look up by adding a fancy (yet very soft and comfy top), a killer heel, slicking back my hair and adding a slick of red lippy.
Simple yet effective I'd say!

I hope you are all enjoying your festive frolics, let me know on social media what you have been wearing and if you've rocked a pleated skirt this winter.

How to wear an all white outfit this winter


I have a question for you all. 

Would you trade your beloved, all black outfit for an entirely white/cream ensemble? If the answer is yes; I have a look that might help inspire you to do exactly that this winter.

We shouldn't just keep white clothes for those hot, summer days. It is a colour that can look extremely classy no matter the time of year and as a plus size girl; it's about time we embraced this colour.

In my opinion, all white/cream outfits look clean, crisp and they have a sort of luxurious vibe about them. I spoke about my love of monochromatic outfits in a previous post (here) and I am totally here for this really cool, yet casual look. 

How to wear all white

In regards to style tips, it's pretty simple. If you spot a white item you like, buy it. Build the outfit around that one item. I started with my old ASOS Curve coat which I have worn to death since buying it last year. I then bought the bag whilst browsing online. A few weeks later I was gifted the Converse and then whilst doing my weekly daily ASOS trawl I spotted the Jumper Dress

Try a white Wiggle Dress paired with a minimal Coat.
What about a pair of cream Wide Leg Trousers worn with a simple Cream Tee?
You can't beat a crisp, white Shirt worn with a pair of white Culottes.

Don't forget to finish off your look with all white accessories. I love trainers or chunky brogues for the day and ankle boots or platform heels for the night time. White backpacks, clutches and tote bags are every where at the moment and will help you tie your look together..
