Style: At number 66

Well I wondered why my mum was whining saying she couldn't fit my feet in the picture. Well it turns out my photos where on the square setting. Ah well, makes a change doesn't it? So anyway, how are you lot? 

I wore some clothes today and I had someone to takes pictures of me doing such a wondrous thing. Hooray I hear you say! 

I'm wearing a delightful little lightweight pinafore from ASOS, the t-shirt is from the H&M main range (they're XL is about a 22 depending on cut and fabric) and the shoes are my old clogs, which you can pick up similar from Lotta from Stockholm Clogs, who have the most amazing range. And that my friends is all I have to say about that really! I am completely shattered from work but my oh my are things wonderful. 

Oh god I almost forgot!!! I'm also wearing my banging awesome Miu Miu sunglasses from the Sunglasses Shop via the amazing peeps at Navabi! They are my most treasured possession after my child. No jokes. 

Have a great weekend gang, speak soon.

Style: Shoe Shoe be Doo.

Hey hey! I've had a very busy but fab week. I hope yours has been great too!

I got these snaps a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post them. The outfit is a couple of pieces I picked up in the ASOS sale and the shoes were very kindly gifted to me by Yours Clothing

I seem to have built up a rather extensive collection of dungarees in all their different guises, I just seem to gravitate towards them for some reason! I even have posh pinafore dresses for work now too!  I just love to pop them on and feel instantly put together (I feel like I say this about all my clothes, but that's the point, I try and chose pieces that are easy to wear, but look great). 

So onto the shoes, I love a clog and these are beauties, they are super lightweight and really comfortable. A word of warning though, size up. They do come up very small. They are not very wide fit either, despite the description on the website, but they are gorgeous.

**The shoes were sent to me for the purposes of review which is bloody lovely. I do however write all my own word and have full control of all my opinions haha!!**

Style: Navabi Style Perfection.

I have a confession... I have had this gorgeous Zizzi Black Label top from Navabi literally for months and I have worn it to death, but you know what I didn't do? I didn't blog it! I was so busy wearing it, I plain forgot!  

I have honestly worn this so much, I can just throw it on for work with cigarette pants or a tube skirt and I feel instantly chic. And the quality? Oh my god the quality. There is no denying at just shy of £100 this isn't within everyone's budget, but oh my goodness it is worth every single penny, should you be a position to invest in something a bit more luxe. 

The sizing is spot on, but if you're in doubt, every single item on the Navabi website has individual sizing information regarding fit, measurements and fabric. It is so helpful, majorly so.

Event: Yours Clothing Sunderland Store Opening!

Well lookey here! It's been an inordinate amount time since I last blogged but I'm sure you'll all be pleased to know (or at least I hope you are) that I've finished my degree!!! It was mega tough towards the end, but it's done, and I'm exceptionally proud! So, what better way to celebrate then spend some time with my favourite person, Em, from Terrible Tumbles where we got to spend the day at the opening of the Sunderland Yours Clothing store! 

Look at how gorgeous all these ladies are?!! The team was amazing and welcomed Em and I so warmly! The day itself was wonderful and so many customers were thrilled to see the store, which had previously closed, open again. 

While there I got to play dress up in a couple of pieces from the in-store collection. 

So the outfit I had planned for the day sadly didn't work out, but thankfully I had a beauty of a dress from Yours Clothing I hadn't got round to blogging so I wore that for the day! 

When your best mate makes you laugh when you're trying to be serious...

I love this dress, it's just so wearable! It is comfortable, but a little bit sexy, but completely office worthy too. Add some heels and jewellery and it's good to go for a night out! 

I'm wearing the 22, it's true to size. It is fitted, and to be honest I wouldn't recommend sizing up because it's a body con, it is what it is. If you want a loser fit, I'd try a different style if I'm honest. The length is just on the knee on me (I'm 5'7").

It's good to be back gang!

Style: #MyBoohooStyle

Hey everyone! Hope you're well? 

Great news! Boohoo Plus are extending their range! There's going to be lots more pieces hitting the website over the next few months, so I was very kindly given the chance to style my own Boohoo outfit. 

I'm wearing: Grey Biker Jacket// Wrap Dress// Lace Up Shoes

For fast fashion, plus size style, Boohoo are right up there for me. I love the sheer breath of style and the very affordable price point. 

And for those of you thinking Boohoo is for the under 30's only you'd be wrong, there's fashion to suit all tastes and ages. I've gone for a particularly classic style dress here, with a minimalist twist in the dove grey jacket, then finished it off with some on trend lace up shoes.

In terms of fit, I'm wearing the 24 in everything, I tend to size up in boohoo, but I might have got away with my usual 22 in these pieces to be fair. 

I'll be sharing #MyBoohooStyle across social media, and don't forget if you've got some boohoo pieces to show off, do the same! I love trawling hashtags from brands for inspiration.

Style: Hoody Love.

As promised, here's the second of my Lagenluxe pieces for you today! And this my friends is amazing. If you're looking for the ultimate in throw it on, laid back style then this is the one for you. 

If I said the words "poncho hoody" to you, you'd probably think I'd turned a bit daft, but it really works. I just bloody love it! I've been searching for a big comfy hoody for ages but just couldn't find the right one, this really ticks all my boxes. Roomy, grey marl, pocket to the front, just bloomin' great. 

Imagine how great this is going to be for travelling? Just bang it on in the car or snuggling up on the plane. It's just so snuggly! As you can see from the pics, there is bags of room in this and I'd say it would easily fit up to a 26/28 depending on your boobs and belly, but definitely worth a try I'd say! 

Right it's back to the grindstone for me, I've still got a few last bits to tie up for uni and a big party for a certain little girl to sort out! Have a great weekend guys!

Style: Easy Weekend Style with Lagenluxe.

Hey! I hope most of you are getting the chance to enjoy the long weekend. If not, you have my comiserations, I will be prepping a presentation and working on my script tomorrow, so it's not all R&R round here either, but, today we did pop out for a mooch round town and a cheeky burger. 

My gorgeous gals at Lagenluxe sent me a couple of items from the new spring/summer range, so I road tested one of the pieces today. 

It was bloody glorious today, something I'm so grateful for, I moan about it year on year but I really do not like winter, the short days affect my mood and mental health chronically. So to get some sunshine and real warmth was a complete tonic!

I'm wearing the Beki tee in stripe. You might remember I have this in a gorgeous forest green too. The tshirt itself is cut into panels and has a poncho feel about it, but is infinitely more stylish. I love these drapey styles especially when the weather starts warming up. 

The top is free size, I usually take a 22/24 and this has bags of room, but it does come up quite high in the front and back, so personally I prefer to wear bottoms with a bit more coverage like a high waisted peg leg, jeans or ponte leggings like I'm wearing here. And on a  side note, I own loads of stuff from Lagenluxe and it washes SO well, I mean I worn them to death and they still come up looking new. 

I've got another piece form Lagenluxe to share with you and it is SO cool, trust me! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and to those of you who celebrate, a very happy easter.
