Outfit from 11th June. It wasn’t quite warm enough for sleeveless but did that stop me? NOPE.
Dress from belovedendeavour.com
Dress: Beloved Endeavour
Shoes: Simply Be (sold out)
Bag: Topshop (sold out)
Yours truly modelling the FEARNE floral suit from Beloved Endeavour. I’m wearing the size 24. I usually wear a size 24/26 and this fits me fine as it’s stretchy. The fabric is medium weight, soft and very comfy to wear. I’m modelling both colours (black and mint) then the last two photos show the black jacket with the mint skirt. Availability is very limited so get yours now!
Floral prints abound!
Two skirt suits with a dash of sassiness now available at belovedendeavour.com.
Three outfit posts in one week? I must be ill.
This outfit owes its existence to the inimitable Bethany from Arched Eyebrow. I saw her posts featuring this Asos dress some weeks ago and fell for the frock instantly. It doesn’t look like much on the Asos site but Bethany’s inspired styling and cool deameanour gave it an edge that I couldn’t ignore and I ended up buying it.
So here I am wearing the same dress to church this week
I’ve styled it with my “go to” church bag which I bought from Radley last year, my new Simply Be shoes and my faithful M&S cardi which I have in several colours. I figured those magnificent sleeves needed to be shown off so I’ve scrunched the sleeves up to show the floral puff shape in all its ladylike glory.
Outfit success though I think next time I’ll team the dress with a brighter bag to really pick up on the intensee floral print. I’m off to trawl the fatosphere again to see who else’s look I can copy next week….
This season I’m all about a lil shoulder ruffle. Three new items of clothing bought over the past month- all three have some ruffle or another. I think that’s me taking to a trend.
I’m loving this dress and I can see me wearing it until the print fades to nothing. Its super comfy and I love that it has full length sleeves. I’m so happy full length sleeves are back in vogue as I was getting tired of cold forearms (don’t even get me started on cold shoulders). My only minor gripe about this dress is that it could do with being about 6cm longer. I’m 5ft 7 and feel a little conscious every time I rise out of a seat and have to make sure its pulled down at the back. I can wear it with leggings and do away with that issue but I prefer the look of it with tights.
My favourite bag in my wardrobe, of which there are many. Bought from Lili’s Vintage who has a concession at The Emporium Brierley Hill as well as a Depop shop.
Loving the shoes which are also from Simply Be. Comfortable and shiny. What more does a shoe need to be?
Girly I most definitely am not. I have spent my entire life since the age of 15 stomping around in DM’s and other chunky footwear and am definitly not someone you will catch shopping in heels and cute handbag on a Saturday afternoon. I like chunky and I like geometric. I like colour blocking and I like graphic shapes. But every now and again something catches my eye that’s the polar opposite to my usual sartorial attitude and I end up donning something like this.
Not only is the skirt floral- its frilly at the hem. Not only is the skirt frilly but the blouse is too. All the way around- 360 degrees. Not only that but I’m wearing heels to boot. As if all that wasn’t enough I worked hard to get this blouse, messaging Simply Be HQ when it sold out online, calling my not very local store and interrogating the staff, then finally going out of my way to pick it up in store. So enamoured am I with this blouse that I bought another frill shirt a couple of weeks later. Is this the end of the DM boot wearing season of my life? Ha- not on your nelly.
Skirt- Evans (Clements Ribeiro Swan from several seasons ago thought I bought it 2 weeks ago at the bargain price of £8!!)
Shoes- Evans from around 2008
