Fashion Monday #1

Hi everyone. If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen my outfits already, but I think I am finally ready to start sharing some OOTD posts on the blog. I am not sure if the photos will be taken with my DSLR or just my phone/ipad, but I am not too fussed about it to be perfectly honest. I get my fashion inspiration via instagram every single day, so I am perfectly fine with mirror selfies. What do you think?  Anyway... After the amazing response from many lovely ladies on instagram, I decided to introduce a 'Fashion Monday' feature to the blog, to mix things up a bit. I am getting fed up with writing about beauty 95% of the time and I want to branch out to other areas of blogging. Change is good, right?

 I am not a big follower of trends, I simply dress in clothes that I feel comfortable in, clothes that suit my body type and flatter my figure. If it's a 5 year old cardigan and I look good in it, I will wear it. If it's a maternity dress and it fits me, I will wear it. I don't look at labels and I do not care if something I am buying is a size 12 or 20. If it fits me, I am happy and the number on the label doesn't change it, does it?  Most of the things I buy are from Asos, Asos Curve, New Look, George at Asda and H&M and I am currently a size 16/18, but I buy things ranging from a size 12 to 22, depending on the style and fabric. I buy from both, standard lines and plus size lines.

Sooo, every  Monday (or most Mondays), you will see either a proper outfit post, a fashion haul or a collage of my instagram photos with my recent outfits. We will see how it goes... :)

Outfit 1: New Look Inspire Heart Print Dress (black option), Cardi- TKmaxx, shoes -Asda
Outfit 2: Mini Vest Bodycon Dress (asos), White boucle blazer (asos, only £10.00), Shoes - Primark
Outfit 3: Asos Zebra Print Dress (£9.00), cardi - TKmaxx, Shoes- Lace Pumps from Shoe Zone (£9.99)

On the random photo in the bottom right corner, you can see some charity shop purchases and two pairs of Birkenstock dupes from Primark.They were only £5.00 per pair! I cannot wait to style the lace tutu and the cream kimono!

Outfit 4: Scuba Leg Trousers (£12.00 George at Asda), Shirt (New Look), Necklace: Jasper Conran, same TKmaxx cardi :)

You NEED these trousers in your life! They are sooo comfy! The fabric has a bit of stretch to it and the shape is very flattering. I cannot wait to get my mitts on the other designs. They have them in black & white floral, black and white monochrome, black with colourful floral detail and zebra print. So pretty!

I also got this Asos Boucle Blazer recently for only £10.00 and I love it! I am wearing it with a Primark tube skirt worn as a dress under a black New Look Shirt. The shoes are from Primark, but you can't really see them. They are just simple black suede wedges.

I will try to improve the quality of the photos for the next post, but let me know what you think about 'Fashion Mondays'. I might not talk about fashion a lot, but I am a spendaholic and I buy tons of new clothes, accessories etc all the time :) haha.
