True Blue With Navabi

I AM BACK!! It has taken a little while for me to get back to a place where I felt comfortable blogging again. After lots of chats with my wonderful husband, he made me realise I shouldn't be doing this for other people, I should be doing it for myself, because I enjoy it. So I've now decided that I won't be putting any pressure on myself to blog everyday, have model quality photographs, have the most followers or any of the other competitive aspects that can come with blogging. I will still mostly feature fashion but I will also be incorporating some baby/mama posts too and plan to have a rejig/rebrand as soon as I can! I'm just going to do my thang and if people enjoy reading then that is an incredible bonus! 



Anyway! Back to the fashion, FINALLY! Navabi have always been a brand that I have a huge respect for. Despite being pricier than some other plus size brands, they provide absolutely outstanding quality, an incredible level of choice and offer plus size women real designer options! 

I was lucky enough to be sent a GLORIOUS ruffle look denim number from latest Manon Baptiste collection and as a busy Mum that craves stylish, plus size, quick but fabulous options - this has ticked every single box!

  

Dress - Manon Baptiste at Navabi, Leggings - Very Maternity, Socks - Topshop, Shoes - River Island, Glasses - Specsavers (£89 range).

Firstly I would like to apologise for the slight creasing of the dress! Chasing a crawling/cruising baby all day very rarely allows for uncreased fashion haha! But I ADORE this dress!! I sized up just incase, as I feel with denim you never know how heavy it will be so I thought better safe than sorry but on arrival I realised I really didn't need too! The fit is incredibly true to size and the cut is hugely flattering. I love the ruffle detail across the shoulders as it gives a traditional denim dress a real twist. It's SUPER soft and comfortable, really lightweight and will absolutely be an item I can wear throughout the summer but the winter too. I also feel that if you have any areas of your body you aren't comfortable with baring, this dress will flatter them ALL so there are no worries in that department either! I cannot recommend it highly enough. At £84.99, it is on the higher price compared to items I would usually feature but it is 100% worth the money, the quality pays for itself! 

 

Just a quick word on my shoes! These are from River Island and I LOVE THEM!!!! The fur is ridiculously OTT but they're so cute I couldn't resist them. They're super easy to wear and can be teamed with mostly anything! The only thing I will say is the elastic that allows them to be slip on is very tight so they can be quite tough to get on! So if you have wider feet, I would probably say avoid. 

It feels SO GOOD to be back in the blogging seat. For updates sake, have a recent picture of Eli who is now 9 months! He crawled at 8 months and started cruising just before 9, has 3 teeth (with 3 more on the cusp) he sleeps in his in room (as of this week) and is just the most beautiful, clever, hilarious little man. 

 
 
Lots Of Love,
