Winter is one of the hardest seasons for me when it comes to dressing up. I’m definitely not as body confident as I used to be so I’m happiest in jeans and a slouchy jumper but I’m slowly coming to terms with my mum bod and that means learning to dress in a new way.
I’m a huge fan at the moment of a midi dress and this tan polka dot wrap dress from Boohoo is an absolute gem. Paired with my Cari’s Closet chunky gilet for a bit more warmth when a coat isn’t needed, I think it’s a great outfit for an evening out.
I’m also loving prints at the moment and have recently snapped up some printed blouses including this gorgeous leopard print one from M&S which was a Christmas present from a family member. Again I think it works really well under my gilet.
Lastly I picked up this cute black jumpsuit from New Look which I had my eye on at full price so was pleased to get it in the sales for a bargain of £7. I can’t wait to wear this at some point soon as I think it’s the perfect thing for getting my confidence back.
I’m still finding my style hence why I haven’t taken photos of me actually in the clothes because I really didn’t feel confident enough to brave a camera. I’m hoping to start finding my feet again with fashion and ditch the baggy jumpers at least some of the time but this post definitely ignited a passion for shopping again.
The upcoming festive season is one which is jam-packed with parties, events and special occasions. So, of course, you need to look and feel your best for every event you attend over the Christmas period! Luckily, with a few simple tips to follow, this is easier than ever. From finding the perfect outfit to the added extras to truly make your look sparkle, below are the essential areas you need to focus on this year.
Dress to Impress
Whether you choose a sleek and simple jumpsuit for the office party, or you wear a mini skirt for a night out with the girls, what’s most important is how it makes you feel. Regardless of whether or not you love a particular style, if you don’t feel confident and comfortable in it, don’t wear it! There’s nothing more disheartening than feeling self-conscious throughout a party and wanting to hide away in a corner. To have you feeling and looking incredible, you can find beautiful plus size outfits or the perfect pair of relaxed jeans and boots from the comfort of your living room.
With that in mind, the festive season is a time for glitz and glamour, so don’t shy away from sequins and glitter! However, if this will make you feel like a Strictly Come Dancing contestant, why not opt for velvet instead? Velvet dresses are a luxurious addition to any wardrobe. Choose a rich, darker tone, such as navy or burgundy to wow everyone at the Christmas party.
I’m now less than 7 weeks from returning to work after over 13 months off with my tiny human and I’ve come to the realisation that nothing really fits in my wardrobe anymore. To refresh my wardrobe I’ll be turning to some of my favourite shops such as New Look and Primark to get some staples to see me through winter. Here are my favourite picks from New Look’s current season.
