Frills and Florals with Boohoo.




Top and Skirt: c/o Boohoo. Sunglasses: Specspost. Shoes: Primark. Necklace: Charity Shop.

This is my second instalment from the fab goodies Boohoo sent across to me when the sun was still just about shining! I simply ADORE this outfit but I just wish my photographs did it justice unfortunately I was struggling to find a good place in my garden to snap them! I'm also sorry if they seem a little creased I'm too impatient with an iron when there is clothes as cute as these for me to wear. The team over at Boohoo originally sent this outfit across for me to wear to a stunt they were planning but unfortunately it had to be cancelled but they were sweet enough to let me keep the pieces to show you on here and on my YouTube Channel!

I'm wearing the Betsy off the shoulder frill top  which surprisingly is from the main range which from my understanding technically only goes up to a UK14 however I knew from the fabulous Charlotte from The Good Owl (who I'd seen it on during the summer and knew I had to have it!) that it was a loose fit and elasticated so I thought I may get away with it and luckily I did as I really love this top! The sleeves are dramatic in the very best sense but have taken bit of getting used to when I'm wearing it. I decided to pair this with the Rosie printed a line skirt from Boohoo Plus which I'm wearing in a UK22 as with Boohoo generally speaking I always need to size up at least once with the clothes (but not the swimwear as you know from my previous post) I finished the look with my primary wedges which I've had for ages and will be gutted when they fall apart, my chain from the charity shop and cateye frames from Specspost.

So what do you think and here's to hoping that this post won't be the last one which the sun shining in it!

The Last of The Summer Swimwear!




Swimsuit: c/o Boohoo Plus. Necklace: Charity Shop. Scarf: H&M (old). Shoes: Primark. Sunglasses: Specspost.


I'm back with one last swimwear post for you! I'm genuinely really gutted that summer has basically gone now as I'll have to pack away all the fabulous swimwear I've gotten this summer! Normally I'm not a big fan of summer because I'm naturally a warm bodied person and summer just makes me uncomfortable but now I've embraced my body etc I've much more comfortable this time round! 

When Boohoo got in touch with me back in September asking if I'd like to take part in a little stunt with them involving their plus size swimwear I basically jumped at the chance! Unfortunately it had to be cancelled but they were nice enough to still sent out the pieces for us to keep and put up on our blogs. I decided on this swimsuit which unfortunately has since sold out on the site but they do still have some really cute ones available including the Miley Tie Detail Bikini and the Plus Leila Detail Crop Bikini which you can see below.


This suit is really cute and comfortable to wear. Like I so often do with Boohoo I sized up to a UK22 but it seems for the swimwear range it seems that I really didn't have to as this suit is actually a little too big for me on the bum and back. I've also done a YouTube video with this which you can hear more of my thoughts on this suit there. This also has no padding at all which for some of you I'm sure isn't a problem but I prefer it, luckily I'm a dab hand with a sewing machine and can pop some swimwear cups in. I'm wearing a bra under this for the photos as I didn't want and accidental flash and so not to terrify any of you! 

Overall I'm looking forward to what Boohoo Plus will bring to the table for next summer and I'll remember that it runs true to size, I've also got a really cute OOTD coming soon featuring Boohoo.
