Do You Want Fries With That? - Love This Sunday





Swimsuit: c/o Love This Sunday. Sandals: Simply Be. Fat Babe necklace: Black Heart Creatives. Skirt: Was dress altered by me from a charity shop. Sunglasses: Claireabella's Closet.

A few weeks back now the babes over at Love This Sunday gave me the chance to style up another of their swimsuits and how could I say no to this one covered with chips?.. WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE COVERED IN CHIPS?! Yell I know I want to be. Again I've not had chance to properly test this out in deep water yet it held up fine with a little paddle and splash around. I certainly match the British seaside perfectly in this! Here I'm wearing a 3XL but I'd probably easily be able to size down it's just that I panic when looking at sizing so normally opt for the larger option as I'd rather something a little loose than too snug.

I styled it up with some cute retro sunglasses and windmill that went with my graduate collection (but really I got them because I loved them too!) and what chip covered swimsuit isn't complete without a fat babe necklace?! This skirt I've had for years but now I've cut it up a little I feel it's much more wearable and something which will be perfect now it's heating up. The sandals are old favourites from Simply Be which I bring out year after year and they still seem to look cute and work with my personal style. 

Finally I just want to say a quick sorry for not jumping back into blogging as quickly as I would have liked after getting through my degree. I'm currently trying to decide what my next move will be and what I want to do next! Exciting but also terrifying!

Footwear Woes with Evans Clothing.




Top: Made by me. Leggings: Matalan. Necklace: Black Heart Creatives. Clutch Bag: Gift. Shoes: c/o Evans Clothing.

I'm back with a new post for you in featuring footwear from Evans Clothing. They recently got in touch with me and asked if I'd be interested in working with them on a campaign about the problems us girls with wide feet often have and I snapped at the chance as I always struggle with shoes! I answered a questionnaire then I got to try a pair of shoes that would hopefully compete with my woes some of which were:

1. I genuinely have very wide feet, they remind me of a ducks.
2. Heels aren't really my friends, within ten minutes I'm usually crying.
3. I have a high instep so often straps across my feet won't work or will really cut in.

So Evans popped across these contrast scrappy heels. Which do include everything I tend to avoid in footwear. The low heel makes them easier to walk in mostly and I know from experience that Evans size 5EEE are pretty on point for me so they do fit well.  My only issues are that they do still cut in a little across my toes (however this is from first wear, When I wear them in around the house in fluffy socks I'm sure they'll be fine!) and the zip on the heel which makes them a dream to put on, no fiddly buckles(!) does however catch my ankle slightly, again though once worn in I don't think this would be any problem! I styled the shoes with my bardot top I created myself which was originally a skirt from the charity shop, my new lips clutch bag which was a birthday present from my babe Jess at college and the 3 lipstick necklace from one of my favourite jewellery designers Black Heart Creatives! P.S sorry for the lens smudge on my second photo, I really struggled getting snaps due to the sun though it does make it a nice change from blaming the rain! 

What are you footwear woes? You can see Evans full selection of shoes here.

Summer Lace - SheIn Review.







Lace Top: c/o SheIn. Swimsuit: Asos Curve. Bag: H+M. Sandals: Simply Be. Skirt: Handmade by me. Fat Babe Earrings: Black Heart Creatives. Sunglasses: c/o Specspost

I'm not really sure what's happening with this outfit but I'm really loving it! The hair is maybe a little bit 80s as is the lipstick but I'm still feeling it! Again I'm sorry for the slight radio silence but with my fashion show now been and gone (I'll get photos up as soon as I can as I'd love to show you my graduate collection!) 

I was sent this cute lace number from SheIn (formally known as She Inside) who I've heard of for quite sometime and seen them featured on a number of straight sized blogs but I was a little wary due to the sizing so I decided to go for something that looked over sized and in the largest size available which was a XL. I'm pleasantly surprised at how utterly lovely this top is! It can be worn as a beach cover up or as a sheer tunic/top which I've done both above. What else I wasn't prepared for was that it felt nice, cheap lace can sometimes feel scratchy and irritating but this doesn't at all. I'm now really looking forward to trying some other pieces from SheIn if I get the chance to so to prove that plus size girls can also shop there! The shoes also look pretty fabulous but alas I have really wide feet! 

I styled this up with a swimsuit from Asos Curve which I do love but just wasn't sure how to wear it! Funnily enough I think I'm more into "Fatkinis" than swimsuits something I never thought I'd be saying as up until a year ago it wouldn't have been anything but a one piece! I also bought myself this bag as a little birthday treat as I've been after one for ages! (I also had one as a kid and I'm happily relieving that now!) 

So what do you think? Shall I wear this out during the summer?
