3 Miles With Our Special Guest

This weekend my wonderful man and I are looking after Fred, our friends adorable rescue Terrier. He is a brilliant little dog and we love his visits! Today we took him for a 3 mile walk (who said fat girls can't excessive!) and although it was freezing, it was a glorious day! 


Cardigan - Newlook Inspire, Swing Dress - ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Socks - Primark, Shoes - Primark, Bag - ASOS, Sunglasses - Charity Shop (borrowed from my man as I recently broke mine), Necklace - Newlook.

This is pretty much as casual as things ever get for me! I own one pair of trousers, some ASOS Curve Harem Pants, so you'll never see me in jeans or anything of the like on my more relaxed days. This isn't because I feel any kind of distaste towards trousers, I really do just prefer dresses and skirts haha!

I fear that this cardigan is going to remain a firm and incredibly regular fixture in my Winter/Spring wardrobe! It is just so inbelievably cosy, comfortable and versatile! 

This dress is so comfortable it's ridiculous and is perfect to be worn in work or outside of work, casually or on more dressed up occasions (depending what you accessorise it with)! The only downside to it is that the material does mark quite easily. It's a super soft, thin jersey and the slightest smudge does sit very visibly. However, given a quick wipe, any marks do come off very quickly so it isn't too bad! 


These socks are a perfect addition to almost any outfit I think! They are super cute and can be worn with casual outfits like this, but also with smarter outfits (to add a more individual twist) and even more smart/casual outfits! Now, these shoes, I found for £3 in Primark on Oxford Street and I could not leave them there! I adore Vans, I won't lie, they are ridiculously comfortable, however I don't feel I wear them enough to warrant spending the money on them. So as soon as I saw these I had to have them and I was not disappointed. They are just as comfortable as Vans and look just as cute I think!


This necklace was another absolutely steal! £3 in the Newlook January sale! I saw one of the lovely ladies I follow on Instagram wearing it, asked her where she got it and I snapped one up online straight away! The bugs do have a horrible habit of flipping over however they have little teardrop pearls sat under their wings, so it still looks fabulous even if they are upside down haha! When I got it in the post, I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about the two tone gold/black chain but as soon as I put it on with an outfit, I loved it!


I love pastel nail colours and this Maybelline Forever Stay Pro in Lunar Grey is no exception! It goes on beautifully (it has an amazing wide brush), dries incredibly quickly and with a good top coat looks luscious and shiny! A definite recommendation to all pastel lovers out there!


When we're having quiet days, I like to give my eyes and skin a little rest, so I just whack on a quick layer of mascara, some eyebrows and a very small amount of skin makeup and I'm good to go!


I'm also very sad I broke my sunglasses but I did enjoy looking like the Cop from the Village People for a day haha!


Finally, here's Fred, loving life on our walk! He's amazing!

Lots Of Love,
