So remember back in January and I posted my first outfit of the day post and I said it probably wouldn’t become a regular feature? Well today I’m having a good body image day so to celebrate, I’m sharing another outfit of the day. Because who knows when I’ll feel this good about my wobbly tum and slightly too large thighs again?
I picked up this gorgeous t-shirt from the recent Re:So pop-up shop event; I just love the colours and I love that the t-shirt is a really good length. I know that sounds weird but you know what I mean, right? Like, it’s not showing off any of my stomach when I stretch my arms up but it’s not too long so it doesn’t look like I’m trying to wear the shortest dress in the world.
The skirt I picked up last year on a trip into North Laine in Brighton. It’s lovely and floaty but it doesn’t give you that infamous Marilyn moment if the wind picks up. I’ve definitely had plenty of those experiences in my younger days, but I cared less. Probably because the cellulite hadn’t hit yet.
I teamed the outfit with these boots, which I didn’t think I’d love at all. J messaged me one day while I was out in town and said they were on sale from Amazon and sent me a photo. I thought they looked awful, like weird cowboy boots, and not my type at all. Then he pointed out they were ten quid. YUP. TEN WHOLE ENGLISH POUNDS. And it was free shipping and returns. Suddenly I loved them, so I asked him to buy two pairs; my usual 7 and an 8, just in case which I’m glad I did now as J did some research and Rocket Dog boots apparently come up rather small (these are Sidestep in Oliver). The size 8 fitted like a dream and now I can’t stop wearing them. I also recently found out they usually retail for about £70! My boyfriend done good. Like really good. And he even bought the boots for me ♥ I bet he wouldn’t have bought me them if they’d been £70 though lol
I am so crazy in love with this bag it’s unreal. It was very kindly sent to me by LYDC* and I’ve been literally showing it off everywhere. I adore the combination of beautiful spring/summer colours; even the lining inside is navy and white striped 🙂 It’s super roomy too. There are 3 pockets inside, one on the outside, a pouch and a separate little purse/make-up bag that you can unclip 🙂 If you want to own this bag or any of the other gorgeous products from LYDC, you can get a 10% discount if you use my promo code: CLOSINGWINTER2017 (not an affiliated code).
