Style | Loving Lovedrobe

Thursday, 31 August 2017 | 1 comment


Its been a long time since I've worn an outfit that makes me feel so good. I've been guilty of wearing the same outfits on repeat, I do this quite a lot when I'm feeling tired and not my usual self. I wore trousers 3 days in a row the other week which is very unsual for me.

 When Lovedrobe kindly gifted me this top it got me quite excited about my wardrobe again. I paired it with an old skirt from Tu at Sainsburys. It was the perfect smart casual pairing for a Saturday morning breakfast.

I sized up to a 26 in this top as I wanted a loose comfortable fit but I could have easily gone for a 24 and got the same effect. My favourite part of the top is the lace detailing at the top. You can see my bra straps underneath (I don't own a strapless bra), but this doesn't bother me at all. The ruffle under the lace adds another element of texture to the top. I haven't got anything like this in my wardrobe so I'm excited to style it in different ways.

The top is a great length as well, just skimming over my bum and hitting the top of my thighs. I will be styling it another way so have a look out for a post on that soon!

Mr C and I recently took a trip down to Truro in Cornwall. It was on our list of places to visit and, even though Mr C had been there before, this was a lot further down that way than I had been before. Unfortunately, travelling took up almost 2 days of our trip so we were only really left with 3 full days, which we made the most of!

After a very wet start to the week the sun slowly made an appearance much to our delight. Luckily I took a few pairs of trousers with me but also managed to pack a few dresses as well.

This one is a new addition to my wardrobe. After the recent heatwave in the UK I realised that I didn't have enough sleeveless dresses, so I popped on the ASOS website and ordered a couple. This was my favourite one, the other will be in an upcoming post!

The dress is by Junarose via ASOS and it was in the sale. I couldn't see it when I looked again though. It's very lightweight which means it is perfect for hot days but no so perfect for windy days as I found out! I had to make an outfit change later on in the day as I couldn't take anymore of flashing my shorts to the people of Truro!

Style | Back for Good?

I don't even know how to start this post, I mean it feels like I haven't blogged in so long but, in reality, it has only been about 4 or 5 weeks. Actually, that is quite long I guess in the blogging world.

I knew I had to take a break when one Sunday I sat at my laptop for 3 hours and didn't write a thing,  I had pictures that I wasn't quite happy with and the words, they were not flowing. I had a lot of stuff going on in my life along with being quite ill, something had to give and unfortunately it was the blog.

I'd also been suffering a huge confidence crisis. I hated all of my wardrobe, I suddenly felt self conscious when I went out and, as it was so hot, I was constantly a hot sweaty mess. My skin had broken out for the first time in years, I just wanted to shut myself away from the world. I also got sucked into that Instagram trap of comparing myself to others, which just made me feel even worse. Its so easy for that to happen when you have a lot of famous bloggers/instragramers showing the best parts of their lives. After a couple of days I had to sharply remind myself that they too will have good and bad days, that we only see a snippet of their daily lives and perhaps, like me, they have days when all they want to do is eat, sleep and lounge in their favourite pjs!

Today is the first time I've opened my laptop (for blogging) and it feels right, like I'm ready to come back, maybe once a week for now but who knows! Let's see what happens!
