Outfit August Day Nine

Hello and welcome to day nine of Outfit August, today is the last of my sale purchases from Lindy Bop and I have finally gotten around to blogging it!!

This is the Kelly dress from Lindy Bop which I nabbed in the sale for £11!! Of all the dresses I own from Lindy Bop this one has the tightest fit and is probably less generous in size. It is a bit of squeeze over my boobs and makes me feel even more busty than usual!

I love the parrot print as it is so cheerful and the bow is a nice touch! Sadly this dress has since sold out but if you keep an eye on Ebay you may spot one. Do keep in mind that this dress is on the smaller size so you may need to size up.

Outfit August Day Six

Today I am back with yet another Lindy Bop dress which I grabbed in the sale- when Lindy Bop reduce stuff they really reduce it!

This is the Bletchley Dress which I liked as it has sleeves and most of the dresses I own are either sleeveless or capped sleeve. This dress will be great for taking me through into the colder weather with tights and a cardigan.
It does come with a matching belt in the same material as the dress but I decided to use an old Yours Clothing belt to make it look a bit different. I am pleased to say that despite the size of my bust the buttons don't gape or pop open.

This dress also has pockets and of course you all know how happy that makes me! The fabric is on the thicker side so the skirt has a good fullness without a petticoat underneath.

I have worn this loads since I bought it and I think it is one of the most comfortable dresses I own.

Sadly it is now sold out on the site but Ebay is always worth a look!

Outfit August

I am very pleased to say that I am once again taking part in Outfit August which is now in its third year! It is organised by the lovely Leah from Just Me Leah and it gives me the chance to delve deep in my wardrobe!

I probably won't manage an outfit everyday like I have tried to in the past instead this year I shall post when inspiration strikes!!

To get things started and to make a change from all the dresses you usually see me in my first outfit includes jeans!!

So last month I picked up this lovely swing vest from Yours Clothing as I realised I didn't have many tops to go over my jeans for the summer. There is something really cheerful about the colour and it makes me feel bright and summery whenever I wear it. I love the swing style as it allows me to keep cool.

My jeans are my old faithful Evans Ultra Stretch Skinny Jeans, I dread the day they give up on me as I love them to bits. They keep their shape and don't go baggy on the bum or knees and have proper tight ankles. ( I can't stand flappy leggings and jeans!!). For me these are the holy grail of jeans and I know only own these and a pair from Simply Be so maybe I need another pair in my life!!

My flip flops where a whole 90p from Primark and are great for throwing on to go in the garden!

Simply Be Midi Dress OOTD*

Hello I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sunshine (well that is if the sun is shining where you are!!).

As you all know I love my dresses and during the summer months they are my go to outfits to keep me cool and I am always on the lookout for new midi dresses as the length is perfect for me.

When I spotted this one from Simply Be I knew it would be perfect for work and casual wear.

If you are considering this dress then do be warned it has no stretch and if like me you are blessed in the boob area it would be a good idea to size up as it does come up on the small side. It has an elasticated neckline so you can wear it as a bardot style but due to my boobs pulling it up it tends to sit on my shoulders!

To finish off I have teamed it with some ghillie sandals (I love this style and I now own about three pairs in various styles!!) and a watermelon bag because who doesn't love watermelons!!

If like me you have wide feet then ghillie style is a good bet as they tend to be more generous across the foot even in standard fittings.

See you all soon!

The Story of Citrus Dress OOTD

A few months ago I once again took a chance on trying a dress from Modcloth in their latest Stylish Surprise. I paid my money and waited to see what would arrive (I think I am more excited by the element of surprise than the dress!).

This time I got The Story of Citrus Dress which I have since worn to work during the warmer weather.

It is a lovely thick and stretchy material with the cutest little puff sleeves and sweetheart neckline. I am also pleased to say it is fully lined so it doesn't go see through when the light shines on it!

Sadly it is now sold out in this colour but there is a lovely floral one still available.

If you haven't yet tried a Stylish Surprise from Modcloth I would definitely recommend it, as for a very reasonable price (and no custom charges if like me you just order one dress) it's a cheaper way to try out Modcloth!!

Just keep an eye on their website but do make sure you are quick as they sell out very quickly!!
