Peplum tops, I find them so comfortable and they fit over the top of my bubble butt!

Short skirts or Short 'shorts', I still don't feel comfortable about showing my thighs too much.

How did you choose the name of your blog?

I went through lots of different names before I cam up with this one, I wanted to combine my love of gardening and fashion so that's when awheelbarrowfullofstyle was born!
