If you’ve been keeping up with my life, you’ll know I’ve been training with a personal trainer since January. In that time, I’ve lost just over a stone and I really wanted to treat myself to a new outfit; more specifically, a new dress!
I’ll be honest, I’m rubbish when it comes to buying clothes. I never know whether the clothes suit me, if the clothes I’ve got on actually go together or if I can even pull off a “trendy outfit”.
I follow a few fashion bloggers on Instagram and I’m always envious about how amazing they look in their clothes!
*includes gifted PR products* I recently got to go back to the Harry Potter studio tour and this time I took my mum along with me 😊 I’ve been a couple of times before but my mum’s never been so I decided to treat her for her birthday!!
While we were there, I also gave her a quick crash course on photography so I could get some outfit of the day photos! I think she did really well!! (Apart from a couple of blurry photos and all the ones of me with my eyes closed 😂😂)
A few months ago, Rosie, Katie and myself were discussing ideas on where to go after we’d had our fun day out at Wood’s in Worthing. We knew that we definitely wanted something food related and somewhere pretty for loads of cute outfit shots!!
I rarely venture out as far as Hove for food, despite knowing there are some absolute gems when it comes to great places to eat with Instagrammable décor, mostly because it’s almost an hour away by bus for me and I’m pretty lazy! But, when Sammy, Jess, Tania and I were chatting about meeting up for brunch, I was happy to let them choose somewhere to go, because I know they know all the best spots! Sammy suggested Hixon Green so we made a plan to meet up.
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
In a previous post, I went to Topshop to try out their personal shopping service, which you can read about here. I said I’d picked up a couple of bits and that I’d do an outfit of the day post so this is what I bought!
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’m pretty sure that fashion posts and outfits of the day won’t be a regular feature on my blog. I have no idea about what looks good, what shape I am and which colours go together well, but I absolutely love my new coat and wanted to share how pretty it is, so naturally I thought of all of you 🙂
