Spots & Buns OOTD

Another Saturday, another outfit! I am absolutely loving the new found chill in the air and this is the time of year in which I can crack out all my favourite pieces!



Dress - Charity Shop (originally Sainsburys however), Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Shoes - eBay, Jacket - Beth Ditto for Evans (her first collection).

This dress is one of my favourite casual pieces. So soft, so comfortable but I still feel fabulous and sexy in it. I don't normally like wrap dresses, as being an ample chested lady, I struggle with them being too revealing however this one is stitched inside so doesn't gape at all! It's brilliant! It hugs all my curves in the right places and I love it.

I was sent these shoes by mistake in the place of another item I ordered on eBay which initially I was annoyed about haha but when I tried the shoes on and they fitted, I was pretty stoked! They're a gorgeous colour and a really soft, comfy faux suede (not so great for rainy days though).


I love this nail varnish! It's Sinful Colours Pistache and only cost me £1.99 in Boots! It goes on well, dries smoothly and lasts really well with a good topcoat. 

Finally, having recently discovered the power of my £1 Primark bun ring - this will, no doubt, be my chosen hairstyle for the foreseeable future! 


I am going through somewhat of a hair crisis at the moment so any style I can find that makes my mop feel a little less like a scruffy mess, I will be fully embracing. I am seriously thinking about the above crop, but I am still considering my options haha! 

Lots Of Love,

The Autumn Chill

I cannot express how happy I am about the return of the cold Autumn weather! It is glorious! I've never been one for the Summer - the fashions don't inspire me because frankly during those months I'm just too sweaty to care about anything! 

We are currently looking after our friends adorable little Jack Russell, Fred. So yesterday we got home from work and needed to take the little guy for a walk - this is what I wore;


Cardigan - Urban Outfitters Renewal, Dress - ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Shoes - River Island.

I love this dress. It's a knitted jersey so unbelievably comfortable but also lovely and warm! Living on an Island means it's constantly windy so I added the cardigan just to be safe! The dress sits perfectly at my waist, providing a super flattering hour glass illusion. 


I am currently having a hair trauma, so I apologise for the lazy up-do I've got going on in this post. I'm in an absolutely quandary as to whether I should keep growing it or do a Miley and crop it! I currently hate it as I feel it looks so scruffy and has no shape or style and is just a mop of nothingness! But everyone keeps telling me to keep growing it which almost makes me want to cut it off even more!


She might be a crazy bitch but that's a seriously fabulous pixie crop!

Anyway! 

I am seriously loving looking after Fred because anyone that knows me will tell you I am obsessed with dogs. All I want is a dog of my very own but at the moment we aren't really at home enough to have one! But look at how gorgeous he is;


And another bonus of walking him daily is that I get to see this incredible view of the island I live on;


This post does slightly veer off of the fashion track so I do apologise but I thought I'd share a little of my life with y'all at the same time as sharing my outfit! 

Lots Of Love,

To Leeds With Love

This weekend we took a very unexpected road trip to Leeds for the night! We had a fabulous time and saw some fabulous bands and this is what I wore.



T-Shirt - ASOS Curve, Pinafore - Alice & You for ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Fringed Socks - Primark, Loafers - River Island, Backpack - ASOS.

I adore adore adore this Alice & You Tartab Pinafore. It is comfortable, a gorgeous material and could be dressed up or down! For this occasion I chose to wear it with a basic ASOS Curve boyfriend fit t-shirt. I wasn't entirely sure what the material would be like and being on the bustier side, I did size up which I think was a wise decision just to allow a little extra room in that department! The waist is elasticated but also has a zip - so comfortable and practical. I really would urge everyone to buy this! 

This backpack is very old ASOS and I did used to wear it every single day. But since the purchase of my Westwood, I now save this beauty for outings in which I know I will need to carry a little more or be standing up for long periods of time because a backpack is much more comfortable in those instances I believe. The leather has started to flake slightly but I've had it for well over a year and it is still going strong.


My hair has gotten to the stage where all I want to do is cut it off. It is at the nothing length from where it refuses to grow for an insanely long time, but, this time I am truly determined to grow it (as I've said it 100's of times before and just given in and cut it off). Curling it seems to be my only slight relief from the frustration of middle length syndrome.


Now we are heading home, slightly worse for wear, a 5 hour car journey ahead of us. I am wearing my oldest, most comfortable ASOS Curve Peter Pan Collar dress, my hair isn't done and I have splashed on the absolute minimum of makeup. 

Some serious car sleeping is in order.

Lots Of Love,
