Outfit Of The Day

Top from Yours
Jeans from The Avenue
Bag Star by Julien Macdonald
Necklace Superdrug
I decided to go ahead and wear the top from Yours that I was unsure about. I like this top but I suppose it could look better on a different body type. I think it draws too much attention to my large hips and if you could see the back my bum as well. But having said that it's really comfortable and I love the style of it. So I think it's a keeper and I will wear it with pride and ignore the fact it makes my hips look huge LOL. I forgot to mention that I finally got a tripod for my outfit of the day pictures so excuse the obvious novice picture. I would have taken it outside but it was raining, boo :-(

Yours & Evans Fashion Mini Haul

It was payday a few days ago and I decided to do what I always do and spend some of it. I needed (honestly I really needed LOL) some new things for spring/summer so decided to have a look on Yours as they always have loads of things I want. But I was reserved and only got 2 tops this time. The first top is a grey top with a black vest attached. This isn't something I would normally go for as I am quite reserved when it comes to clothes for some reason. I guess I feel like I dont deserve to wear cool and trendy things because I am fat but I am trying to change my attitude. So I am going to proudly wear this top as well as the others and not care what other people think! Right, onto the next top from Yours which is the I heart Paris t-shirt. Its really cute and casual which is the style I go for most days. And last but not least the sequin bow stripe top from Evans. I fell in love with this on the web site and had to have it. I love this top but now that I have it in person I do think it was a bit pricey for the quality. So that is it for today. I do have some more things coming in the post so will do another post as soon as I get them. Thanks for stopping by!
Tops from lef to right:
1.Evans sequin bow stripe top £25
2.Yours 2 in 1 waistcoast top £16
3.Yours Paris t-shirt £14
