Black & White Floral Frill Wrap Dress Outfit

A Black & White Floral Frill Wrap Dress With Boots Here is the second post in my three part series, styling dresses with Blue Vanilla! If you missed the first one, you can find it here – How to style a smock tunic dress for Autumn – and let me know what you think! My mum and I shot these photos in the same location, but it really gives off a different vibe and feel because the dress is so different to the first orange one. Instead of going for a fun, casual look, I’ve opted for something a little more classy and chic, using this Blue Vanilla Gisela Frill Edge Wrap Dress. I also took this dress in a UK 10 and it fits perfectly. I find they tend to run a little smaller than other brands, and I definitely couldn’t have fitted into a UK 8 at all, so if you’re between sizes, go for your larger size! This dress is really lightweight and floaty, with a wrap style design as it has tie strings at the side. It’s made from a polyester fabric, which allows it to move freely with your body, and I think that’s important since it has frills on the sleeves and the bottom of the dress. You need that movement. The V neckline (because of the wrap style) is incredibly flattering too, I always love a low neckline like that as it slims the figure and can make you look a lot taller. I paired this Gisela dress with my DUO Over The Knee Empress Boots, and finished it off with my Valentino…

How To Style A Smock Tunic Dress For Autumn

The Autumn Smock Dress With Knee High Boots I am really excited to be sharing a three part series of outfit blog posts in collaboration with Blue Vanilla with you! This is the first post and I had so much fun shooting these photos with my mum last week. Isn’t the Autumn backdrop just gorgeous? It was the perfect scenery for this stunning Blue Vanilla Elena Smock Floral Print Tunic Dress! Now I have never really worn this kind of dress before, a smock tunic has never been something that I gravitated towards, but as soon as I saw it on their website, I completely fell in love with it! Not only is the orange shade really vibrant and intense, it has a 70’s vibe that I think is really cool. It’s the perfect design for wearing with boots and accessorising this time of year. There’s a floatiness to it that allows it to hang and move freely with your body, making it incredibly flattering. Sometimes this amount of material without a slim fit can often overwhelm your body, but this dress hangs off the body perfectly. The cropped, bell style sleeves are a great addition to the design too, and the V neckline is incredibly flattering as it slims you down. I don’t think they could have designed this any better! How To Style A Smock Tunic Dress For Autumn For my outfit, I paired the Elena Smock Dress with my DUO Brown Suede Boots, my Louis Vuitton Mini Palm Springs Backpack, and a few pieces of gold jewellery, to set it off. The bold red lip, which is…

Currently Craving Wish List: November 2020

Halloween has come and gone, and usually once we hit November, I know it will soon be Christmas! It’s scary to think how quickly this year has gone by actually, but it doesn’t stop me craving new items all the time! So here is my November Currently Craving Wish List, and there’s so many gorgeous pieces on it… I honestly can’t buy them all, which is such a shame! Allsaints have really hit it hard this season with their new Autumn collection and I literally want 80% of it! Hence why there’s quite a few items by them in the look book below, ha ha! But I’m obsessing over the sweaters layered over dresses look! I genuinely can’t get enough of it! So take a look at the items below and scroll through with the left and right arrows, then click the pieces you want to buy. Happy shopping!     First up from Allsaints is a satin burgundy dress with a burgundy sweater layered over the top. How perfect would that be for this time of year? It’s simply stunning! Now I’ve also included this style dress in various other colour ways, so you will find a gold metallic option, a brown tortoiseshell version, a black combination with a cardigan, and a grey option as well. All of them are stunning! Next we have the sage green Balfern leather jacket by the brand, and I am desperate to own that! I’m visualising it with neutrals like beige, grey, and black! Then there’s a beautiful shirt with peacock feathers on it (which I absolutely need), a red leather Balfern jacket…

My Weight Gain And Weight Loss Story

My Weight Loss Journey So I know a lot of you asked me on Instagram to talk about my weight because I gained a lot and then lost a lot within the last year. Many of you had mentioned about the weight loss in comments or direct messages on my Instagram, but I actually wasn’t going to talk about it as I didn’t think it would be of much interest, until I then asked on my voting poll if it was an article you wanted, and sure enough, it was a 95% vote for yes, so here we are! It’s taken me a little while to put this post together, but it’s finally here and I’m sharing what happened with my journey. Last year, around October 2019, I started to gain weight. I originally weighed around 137 pound (which is 9 stone 7 or 62 kg) and around 135 pound in the summertime, but come the Autumn, things started to change. I’m not exactly 100% sure why I started to gain a few pound, but I can put it down to being quite unhappy at the time (you already know I was going through some relationship problems) and I started to eat more food, and just be less enthusiastic about things. I didn’t notice the weight creeping on at first as it was just a few pounds, but by the time it was March 2020, my weight had shot up to 156 pound (11 stone 1 or just over 70kg). That was like a 19 pound weight gain in the end, and I was really confused. I ended up having…

Happy Halloween! My Costumes!

Happy Halloween everyone! Since 2020 has been a crazy year so far, parties are still banned, Trick or Treating is off the table, Halloween feels much like it’s cancelled. I know that I always do an annual costume as it’s tradition, but this year I haven’t got one. I thought it might be nice instead to look at the costumes that I have worn for Halloween since 2013! I would love to know which one is your favourite! 2013 This was my first proper Cat Woman outfit, and I remember being really embarrassed shooting these photos in case anyone was going to see, ha ha. I liked how it turned out though and it was really simple to put together! Cat Woman is probably the easiest costume to put together. 2014 Tinkerbell! One of my personal favourite characters that I love from Disney! This was also probably one of my favourite costumes to wear as I had so much fun in it, especially with the wings! 2015 As you can tell, I do have a love for dressing up as a super hero! Wonder Woman was another fun one to do, however I remember being in the back of a car park at Lidl, shooting these, so it was pretty eventful with people looking, ha ha. 2016 I don’t know if this one is my personal favourite or not, but being Miss Captain America was the best! Cap is my favourite super hero and this costume was just incredible! I had so much fun doing action shots in this one, it holds a lot of good memories! I also turned…

Tajpur Shirt & Leather Skirt

Hey everyone! I found another set of photos that I never shared with you! These were taken in July and even though I posted them to my Instagram, I somehow didn’t share them with you here on the blog, which is totally unacceptable! Ha ha. I just wanted to update you on the fact that I finally got my new camera this week! So I’m waiting for it to stop raining (if that’s possible) so I can go out and do some shoots with my mum. I can’t wait to be honest, I’m really excited! It will be nice to get some normality back to my life, as everything has been so messed up because of Covid (as it has for everyone), and photoshoots are one thing that I missed a lot as that was a massive part of my life for years. So we will see what the pics turn out like next week! Anyway, for this outfit, I was wearing my Allsaints Tajpur Shirt that I got a few months ago and fell in love with. Isn’t the print just gorgeous? I always love Allsaints for their funky designs on their shirts! I styled it with my Topshop Faux Black Leather Skirt as I love this piece and regularly wear it. Then for the shoes, which you can only see briefly, I had my Celine Biker Boots! Then for the accessories, I had a heart necklace by Shashi, a Daniel Wellington watch, and my Azendi earrings. It’s weird now when I look back on my older pictures from a few months ago, as I look a lot different…

Photo Updates & A Look At My New Hair!

I love this first picture above! It’s my first Autumn photo that I have been able to get and I’m cherishing it! I’ve not been out of the house a huge amount at all, I’m probably going out 1-2 times per week, as I’m still cautious and there’s not much to do, so getting regular Autumn photos hasn’t been a big thing this year. It’s kind of sad actually as I always love this time of year, especially at the parks, so hopefully I can get some more content soon! Anyway, here are some photos that I’ve taken this month! Some of them have been shared to my Instagram already, and some haven’t! Plus, you also get a look now at my new haircut and blonde babylights/balayage that I had! If you’re not a follower of mine on social media, please tell me what you think of it! I’m in love! The long hair was just too much. I asked my mum to snap this photo of me when we went out to lunch a few days ago. I was wearing a look that I was so excited to put together! I love nothing more than a casual Autumn combination, and this is the perfect one! These are my new Saint Laurent West Harness Boots in Nut, and I couldn’t wait to wear them! Seriously! I ended up getting the last pair in 39.5 in the UK, as they’re being discontinued. I’m obsessed with them though! Do you like the outfit? I had my L’AGENCE jeans on with these and my LV Mini Palm Springs Backpack. This is a new…

Currently Craving Wish List: October 2020

No way are we almost mid way through October already? Seriously, where is the time going?! It’s flying by way too fast, and I can’t keep up! But I do have some great posts that I will be sharing with you soon! One of them is about my weight loss (as so many of you on my Instagram wanted a blog post on it) and the other one is about my new hairstyle, and then a new update on some recent looks and things! So, I do have some great content planned, stay tuned this month! First up though, it’s my Currently Craving Wish List series for the month, and an amazing sale from Shopbop, which I took major advantage of! First up in the look book below (of pieces I’m wanting) is a pair of L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Coated Black. Now I just got these and I absolutely love them! They’re stunning! They are now my new favourite pair of coated jeans – I seriously recommend them. I also just picked up an array of Abercrombie & Fitch Flannel Shirts, which are in the list, and they’re the softest shirts that I own. I have burgundy, navy, and coral, plus I’m eyeing the men’s cream version! Then there’s two pairs of faux fur lined Dr. Martens, one in black, and one in brown, and those I have just ordered in the sale too! I cannot wait to wear these for Winter as apparently they don’t need breaking in! I also ordered a pair for my mum for Christmas, so hopefully she’s not reading this! Ha ha. Next…
