Curvy OOTD || High Waisted Summers


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I was in London last week for a party (oh my how swish do I sound?) but also for a few things during the day, so I had to find an outfit that could work for both sorts of occasions and let me tell you, it was a struggle! I wanted something comfortable, not too hot, not too cold, casual, dressy, with laser guns and matching utility belt. Ok, maybe not the last two, but you get the jist.

So here is what I opted for:


I'm afraid my patio isn't large enough for my camerman to take a full length shot and we don't live in a glam location, so this is the best I could get. If this aggrieves you immensely, I am open to offers of new larger houses ;). 


Clothes

Denim Jacket :: Primark
Black Lace Camisole :: H&M
Floral High Waisted Skirt :: Dorothy Perkins (in last years sale for £3! Woop woop!)


Accessories

Faux Pearl Earrings :: Primark
Gold Glitter Belt :: New Look
Amber Ring :: 16th Birthday Present
Coral Scallop Heels :: New Look
Amber Bracelets :: Oasis

I also branched out an opted for a sixties side pony and orange lips. How retro of me!

I really enjoyed this outfit and have worn it a couple of times since, I think it will be a firm favourite!

If you would like to see what I got up to that day, I have embedded the vlog below. Look carefully and you may well see some familiar faces!


Do you ever find something that you love so much that you want to wear it every day?

Toodlepip!!

  3. You dress really great for your figure. It's so nice to see someone prove that you can look gorgeous without being a size 0. Your hair looks fabulous too.
    I have a lot of respect for you and what you do.

  24. Such a cute look, I also love to pair flower prints and denim.
    It makes it more "modern".

    I loooove maxi dresses and own a ton, but with the weather being kinda crappy in Belgium, it's always a challenge to wear them often.

  26. Love this outfit Louise, you look gorgeous! And I bet Zoe was impressed with the orange lips! ;)

    Is the denim jacket a recent Primark purchase?

  27. That's one clever outfit you've put together there, Louise! Definitely party-appropriate without being offensive for the daytime. Snaps for you :) I'm definitely going through a "I never want to wear anything else ever again" phase with my new denim shorts from Zara. I mean, they've got STUDS on them and EVERYTHING. Can you blame me?! Cx

  28. Louise you've lost so much weight & you don't have to call yourself curvy because you're not! xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. Such a nice outfit, you look so lovely! Also i love your hair here, ive gone for something similar today(albeit it was an accident, but i like it!) x

    ReplyDelete
  30. You look gorgeous, the hair and lipstick really suit you. I have so many clothes I fall in love with and want to wear every day.. the days when I can't wear them (like the day after I wore it already) are always sad wardrobe days lol.

    I'm very jealous of your curves too, you have such a lovely figure x

  31. I love the outfit!! :) Cute shoes <3

    Where do you buy your clothes? Both online and in stores. I am curvy as well and I find it horrible to find cute clothes that fit. And you have obviously mastered it :p haha
