Fashion | Simply Pink

Today I'm adding a splash of neon to one of my Summer staple dresses - and be quick because it's ON SALE...

Stripe Skater Dress // Simply Be
Crepe Jacket // Evans
Boots // New Look (last year)
Envelope Clutch // New Look (last year)
Necklace // Primark (last year)

Okay, this post is kind of a biggie for me - well all my fashion posts have been - but today I've got my legs out. My bare, big, tree-trunk like, swollen legs. We all have areas of our bodies that we would like to change but we shouldn't not wear certain clothes or avoid not exposing them just to please the eyes of others. Embrace every inch of your body, honestly just do it. We got one life, one. I guarantee when you're old, wrinkly and collecting your pension you really won't be regretting the times you wore a knee-length dress, had your upper arms visible or posted a photograph of yourself at not the most flattering angle. What I really want to say is... bollocks to it. In the words of Danielle Vanier 'you do you, I'll do me'.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; who said bigger girls can't wear stripes? For me, there are no fast and hard rules when it comes to fashion. The beautifully made Stripe Skater Dress is a scuba material which I always think works wonderfully for a fuller figure because it glides across lumps and bumps. I'm a big fan of a skater dress as it nips you in at the waist, accentuating your shape but the pleats on this one are a winner for me, they really add an extra-girly touch.

Evans have always been a granny brand for me - harsh but true. I've never felt like they've catered for the younger woman's wardrobe. Recently however, they unleashed a whole load of colourful blazers and I, for one have bought quite a few. The stand out colour is most definitely the neon pink, it certainly adds a pop of colour to any outfit. The collection of blazers is filled with neutrals, neons and pastels so there's something in there for everyone. You might want to act fast, they are selling out quickly.

  11. Well said!! I sometimes feel the same with my legs, but sometimes wearing sheer tights airbrush your legs. Why not try that? It boosted my confidence and might work for you :)
