Off Duty Cool


As I previously mentioned, I am allllll about the comfort at the moment. Fashion is ever changing and it's fun to tap in and out of but let's be real, we all love our classic wardrobe staples and my wardrobe is over flowing with them at the moment. 

I wanted to show you todays outfit and show you that a lot of what I wear isn't ground breaking, it wouldn't turn any heads and it could be considered as quite basic?

Now, basic is in no way a bad thing. I love my casual, every day looks and it's easy to glam them up by adding a few accessories and a slick of lippy. During the week I tend to wear trainers as I'm running around London, going to lots of meetings and standing on my feet a fair bit. Come the weekend, I tend to bring out the chunky heels as I know that I'll probably be sitting a fair bit (god I love to sit), eating brunch and travelling via Ubers everywhere - no rushing around anywhere!

This look is my typical off-duty look and I hope you like it! 





Really digging my new Embroidered Parka by newly launched brand, AND/OR which you can buy exclusively at John Lewis. This brand isn't a plus size brand but as you can see, I've taken their XL jacket and made it work for my figure. There's plenty of room in this jacket, it's light and airy and I just love the embroidered details.

Why being comfortable is so important for me at the moment.



It is no secret that I have a chronic illness called Fibromyalgia, but at the moment that is topped off with some pretty severe gastro issues (due to complications with routine surgery last year). Quite honestly, I am not feeling good at the moment...If we're being real, I feel like shit. These stomach issues are making life very difficult for me and it's all just very tiring, very disheartening and it's making day to day life really hard.

I recently signed with a management company which I AM SO EXCITED about but I just wish I was in better health as I'm currently not feeling at my best and I really want to feel better so I can throw myself into lots of work and projects. I've been spending a lot of time at home recently as I've been too uncomfortable to be out and about and I've also not been making plans as all I seem to do at the moment is cancel them.

Cancelling on your friends/family constantly is draining for all those involved. I have to try and listen to my body and pace myself and if looking after my health means missing Drake gigs and birthday dinners; then so be it. I hate having to constantly let my friends down but at the end of the day; your health is more important sometimes most of the time!

I have learnt to mask my Fibromyalgia pain, put a front on things and get on with the task/job at hand but this stomach problem is next level and it's making simple things like dressing pretty hard. Everything tight hurts me as it digs into my tummy, tights hurt, jeans are a no-go as well. It's making things hard for me as it's really limiting my outfit choices. I'm wearing leggings today and even they are putting excess pressure on my tummy...it's all so sexy isn't it?!

The key for me at the moment is to dress as comfortably as possible so this means loose, oversized, flowing garments. I need to feel like I've simply swaddled myself in my bed sheet and that nothing is digging in! I managed to shoot some outfits last week and this is literally the perfect outfit for those who want to slay whilst being comfortable all day! The skirt is loose and doesn't hurt at all and can we talk about that beautiful colour please? I love the tie detail on the jumper, it gives it a point of difference from your standard jumper and you can hitch it up to any height you like.

The #EverywearChallenge Part IV - Styling a Trench Jacket


For the final instalment of my collaboration with Marks & Spencer, I'm going to show you how I decided to style this Trench Jacket. Check my previous posts where as part of the #TheEverywearchallenge; I've styled up four basic wardrobe staples. 

This lil throw-on jacket is perfect for this time of year as it's got a whole load of fancy fabric tech going on with it and it's also perfect for layering. When it warms up in London, I hate dragging round a big bulky coat! This lightweight jacket is perfect as you can throw it on over your shoulders, ram it in your bag when you don't need it or layer it under a longer coat like I did in these outfit pics.

The #EveryWearChallenge Part III - Styling the Ultimate Jean


In my previous posts, I introduced my latest collaboration with Marks and Spencer's and showed you all how I decided to style the ultimate white shirt and classic summer mules. In this third instalment I want to show you how I styled The Ultimate Jeans.


The thing I love most about a pair of jeans is the fact they are a bit of a blank canvas for you to do what ever you like with. I know jeans can also be a statement piece in your look but with a classic skinny; the world is your oyster! 

M&S have a whole host of denim pieces available and these particular jeans are available in NINE colours - how good is that? I am wearing jeans from their main range (which go up to a UK22) but I will also link to their plus size options below.

I'm obsessed with the unique, tiered sleeve bardot shirt I decided to style the jeans with and I fell in love with this style of sling back shoe when I saw them in stores like Celine. I am sooooo thankful that M&S have made these flats - they are so chic don't you think?

ps... I promise I ironed the shirt in the morning!

#TheEverywearChallenge Part II - Styling The Block Mule


As part of an ongoing collaboration with M&S, I want to show you how I decided to style their classic Block Heel Mule

If you're anything like me, comfort is key when it comes to shoes and a block heel is like the godsend of heel heights in my opinion. A mule is one of those classic shoe types that will see you through every season as well as being exceptionally versatile. 

Have a look here on the M&S website to see how the 4 other bloggers in this campaign, styled their mules and go ahead and pick your fave colour!
