Curvy Girl's OOTD- Office Drinks

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Well we are fully in the grips of summer. I knooooowww everyone lluurrvveess the summer, but I find it a bit of a struggle to be honest. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunshine, the flowers, the BBQ's and paddling pools, but I must say, I don't take well to the heat. I get very red and then once I'm red, there's no going back. I'm not a sweaty person so I think that's why I can't keep a nice temperature. I get all hot and bothered and grumpy and if a wasp comes by then that's the end of it for me!!

Slight anti-summer (I'm a hoot to go on holiday with hahaha!), the other night I was invited out for a few drinkeronies with my work chums and so here is my outfit. FYI, It was in the evening so I didn't get the dreaded red-face and was merry and bright! Woop!

As you know, I am a curvy size 16-18 (closer to 18 if I'm honest) and 5"7. Curvy, voluptuous, big boned, bonny, buxom, call it what you like, I am a little bit fat. However, I really think that if you dress your shape properly and have a bit of self belief, you can still look lovely. No, I don't look good in a playsuit, but floaty summer dress? Throw it my way!!

So this is what I wore:



Dress: New Look
Cardi: New Look
Sunglasses: Primark
Sandals: Old Trusty Primark!



Mattmoo doesn't wait for me to do a nice face before he snaps. Grr!



Cheesy pose, scrunched up face. Good times.

And to quench your pretties thirst, here are the accessories:

(Please excuse my roots, appointment this week!)


Hair Flowers: Monsoon Children's Section
Glitter Headband: Primark
Bangles: Topshop
Gold Zippy Clutch: H&M
Earrings: Topshop

So that's it Bloggerinos. Is it a yay or a nay?

Toodlepip!

  6. You look gorgeous Lou, that dress really suits you! You definitely know how to dress your shape and look stunning. Whatever your size or shape or weight, it's so important to know how to dress to emphasise your best bits. Like, my friend Anngie has twin daughters who're non identical. One is a tiny size 6-8, the other a curvier 12-14. The 6-8 twin, Grace, decided for their prom she wanted a short dress. Bethany, the 12-14, decided to stick with the longer traditional styles. However when Grace actually tried on one of the short poofed out prom dresses, she looked terrible. Her legs looked like two strings of cotton dangling down. Bethany tried the same dress but looked stunning, her shape fit into the dress much better and she filled the design. In the end both girls went for longer styles and looked beautiful.
