As you know, H&M tries to fit us adults into kiddie sizes by running their clothes two sizes smaller than normal. That being said, I still order from them as they do some quality pieces.I don't have a problem ordering bigger sizes if necessary.Take this two piece floral set for example. I promise it's not a dress! It was love at first sight. I spied on it for awhile but it didn't move into the sale category as fast as I wanted. I then closed my eyes real real tight and got it .

It fitted perfectly. I am normally a size 16 skirt and the and 16 top.With H&M I had to size up and you all should too. I like my clothes fitted correctly and for my shape. Can you even imagine if this set was too big? You might just think I wrapped my curtains around me and call it a statement piece. 

Yes ladies and gents sizing is really important. Wearing the right size will not only make you feel comfortable but confident in what ever you choose to wear.I would never try to squeeze in to or buy something smaller hoping to fit into.

Although it's a floral print , all together the feel and the print screams Ankara (African wax print fabric)

This set fitted so perfectly , there was no need for any shapewear (control pants). This outfit would be appropriate for a garden party, wedding, evening dinner, lunch date. It all depends on how you want wear it. I will be doing a post to show how you could play with just the top and bottom as individual pieces.

Day to Night Featuring Asos Curve Tule Dress

My first day to night look. I do hope is the first of many to come.  I had been watching this ASOS dress from the beginning of summer.When I first saw it, I thought I had to have you. With my grandmother’s fugal ways forcefully instilled in me, I waited until it went on sale. I snatched this baby up as soon as the discount was reasonable enough. Word of advice, chose your sales, not every sale is for you. There may be bigger percentages round the corner.

Summer Day Look

This dress is versatile, the fact that it's a hybrid of  a bodycon dress and tule layer skirt. I thought I could play with it a little. I started off with the summer day look. I paired it up with a mix print converse and a bright pink belt to add a playful fresh colour to a rather plan canvas.
I used this dress as a blank canvas and set myself a challenge since I don’t usually wear grey. This is why the all accessories chosen are screams summer. I also paired this look with an ASOS time mix print clutch.When you have such a blank canvas like this dress, you can never over accessorize.

Summer Night Look

 I did a little more than just adding a pair of heels. Taah dahh ! It’s a new dress. Well no, not really, it’s the same dress. I would like to show you what a small change of accessories and how a one second alteration can transform this look from day to night.

I kept the bright pink belt, then took the Tule part of the dress and tuck one end underneath the belt. Make sure that the belt holds your chosen end securely. You would not want to be fixing you dress all night right?
Now that’s sorted, add a  gold or pink clutch  and finally your heels. Love these heels, not so much for comfort, because they are so dam pretty. It is the essence of summer itself. Flowers! Colour! Pop!

Say what? Spring post in summer weather? Yes, I have been updating my blog for you. Well for both you and me.
 I have been itching to do a post on this outfit. I wore this outfit when I attended my friend's wedding in March. What a beautiful day of love an laughter it was. It was actually one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to.
As soon as I received my invitation, I started searching for my dress, and found this beauty in the simplybe sale  for only £20.
The drama I had with my shoes should be a blogpost it self. The fact that I had to change my shoes after getting in car they  burnt my feet all night. To be honest I did burn that dance floor. Micheal Jackson made me do it.

Necklace- forever21
Head band- Newlook
Lipstick -Mac (lady danger)



The thought of standing for hours with the possibility of rain,snow or a thunderstorm, greatly influenced my outfit. British weather is slightly bipolar. It cannot recognize when is summer, so I could take the chance to be wet and grumpy.

I paired this 80’s jumpsuit with an army green parka. I choose my 6 year old reebok free style because of its' retro feel. Accessories were kept to a minimum. So, I added this sunflower head band and my 4 year old fringe body bag to bring out my hippie at heart. Although,I also used  my Mac lady danger lipstick to bring the entire look together.

Despite all of that, I still needed something else. something to complete my hippie at heart look. It had to be these white frames round glasses from Its loud , bold and just oh so cool.
