So I've got a confession to make. I've never been to a proper festival. At almost 24 years old I've never seen the likes of V-fest, Glastonbury, or even Bestival. As someone who's such a free spirit and loves spending cosy nights in a tent you'd think I'd be an experienced festival veteran by now, but nope.
The one festival I have been to is Elmfest. Not heard of it? Of course you haven't. It's a teeny tiny homemade festival on a small campsite in the middle of Gloucestershire. Although it's small, it's fun and friendly and pretty local to us so that's perfect. It also allows dogs and campfires on site so we can take our angel George and keep cosy when the sun has gone down!

Now, just because Elmfest isn't a real festival doesn't mean I'm not going to dress up and treat it like one! I'm probably not going to get my first taste of a big festival for a few years yet unfortunatly so when I knew Emlfest was coming back around I took full advantage. I started planning outfits and buying face glitter! I actually invested in some biodegradable body glitter for the weekend, which I'm hoping to create some fun makeup looks with in the coming weeks.

Although a lot of my outfit plans changed due to the cold and then the extreme heat we had one day, this outfit I wore on the Saturday night stayed the same. It's not the most generic festival wear, after all I am in a random field with about 200 other people, I can't really go all out. Its not like a normal festival, it's less anonymous, if I did the whole glitter tits thing people would remember! So I went for a comfortable outfit with happy carefree vibes to it. I feel like this is something I would actually wear to a festival if I did get the chance. Maybe I would add more sparkles and a bit of funky headwear but the base of a good festival outfit is definitely there.

Hopefully one year I'll get to see one of the big UK festivals. I'll probably hate every second of being claustrophobically close to people and the horrible smelly toilets but I'm sure it will be an experience to remember. Until then I'll carry on enjoying my little local Elmfest with a roaring fire, a couple of cans of Dark Fruits and some of my fave people.

CUTE CASUAL & COMFORTABLE - THE PERFECT FESTIVAL OUTFIT


Holidays are coming! The Summer kind! I've already posted a huge list of all the summer clothes I wish I could run out and buy, but today I'm talking specifically about swimwear. When its time to start shopping for my summer hols nothing stresses me out more than swimwear. Being a bigger girl I find it really hard to buy cute pieces that also work well for my body shape.

Well I've taken the stress out for all you curvy ladies by putting together a list of my favourite swimwear. I've popped in a selection of 'sculpting' swimwear for if you're not feeling that confident, some teeny weeny bikinis for if you feel banging regardless of your wobbly bits, and a bit of everything else in between. Basically I've included pretty much every type of swimming costume because size doesn't matter and you can wear whatever you feel great in this summer!


Whilst putting this list together I noticed that the 'plus size' swimwear seemed to be very boring and more often than not plain black. Obviously us bigger girls don't want to draw attention to ourselves  by wearing the cute things the 'normal girls' do. Well fuck 'em, when you buy your new swimwear this year buy the most gorgeous & the most colourful items you can and wear them with pride!

Do you have a favourite piece?

THE BEST SWIMWEAR FOR LARGER LADIES


Erm so I guess its Summer?! How is it May already please? I have no clue where the year has gone! I'm sure it was only last month that the UK stopped still because of the horrendous snow? The snow that just kept coming and coming but nope now its 20+ degreess, fab. So its time to stuff away those jumpers (for now) and whip out your snazzy Summer dresses! 

Its been so long since I wore anything other than jeans and a baggy jumper that I really can't remember what I even wear when the suns out. Honestly, my style staples are black and black and more black, so how am I going to dress for this warm weather? Well I think a little shopping spree is in order and it would only be fair to share my favourite summer style pieces with you all!

THE SUMMER STYLE PIECES YOU NEED!

Do you have that one outfit that you know is pretty fucking basic but you love it and feel banging in it anyway? Well this is that outfit for me. The black jeans, leather jacket, converse, band tee combo is my go to look when I can't be arsed but I still want to look kind of put together, and I think it works. This is probably the universal basic bitch outfit but I literally don't care. 


I wasn't actually planning on taking any style photos the day I wore this outfit. I know it isn't anything special, but I felt great, the lighting was pretty decent and my surroundings were kind of cute too. These photos were actually taken on a day out to Lichfield with my mom who stepped up to be my photographer for the afternoon and considering these pics were taken on my phone by a woman who still isn't really sure how to use it, I don't think they are half bad! They were also never meant for my blog either, I only really wanted some photos for Instagram but I thought I might as well share them here too, thats why they are square!

I pretty much always plan my outfit shoots, I'm not really fun or spontaneous enough to take daily outfit snaps and I wear the same comfy clothes over and over again if I'm honest. I know this outfit and the photos aren't going to blow anyones mind but I kind of like how raw they are. This is an actual real outfit that I would wear day to day and although the quality isn't really up to my usual standard I might start taking outfit snaps like this more regularly. What do you guys think?



Also just a little side note, how fucking cute is my new silver backpack, please? I won it at a Brum Bloggers Accessorize event a couple of weeks ago and it is literally my new favourite bag. I'd been eyeing it up all night to be honest, so when I was given the choice of any non leather bag in the shop (yep I almost cried) I decided to take this little metallic beauty home with me. It's already been on quite a few day trips and bike rides so I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it this summer!

BASIC BITCH OUTFIT

Happy Easter! I hope you are all having a fab Sunday eating lots of chocolate goodies! I'm not going to lie, I've already eaten most of my eggs as everyone made the mistake of giving them to me early, ooops. So with the chocolate long gone I thought I would treat myself to something that lasts a little bit longer, some gorgeous pastel pieces.

It doesn't seem like it, but Spring is on its way and with the warmer seasons comes lighter brighter clothing and accessories. Although I'm a big lover of mostly black outfits, I do love a pop of colour here and there and so I've rounded up some of my favourite pastel items you can buy right now.

- Pastels for Spring -
So what's on your Spring wishlist? Are you busting out the colours or are you sticking with your Winter wardrobe for now? I know I'll be wearing jumpers well into the Summer months but I'm holding out hope that I can start to wear some pretty pastels sometime soon!

EASTER TREATS - PASTEL WISHLIST

These boots are made for walking! Well I mean aren't all shoes really? Anyyyyway, I finally got around to shooting another outfit of the day! I leave it way too long in between outfit shoots, and I don't know why because I find them so fun!

Sean and I popped to Leamington Spa last weekend and because its such a pretty little town I knew I wanted to get some photos there. I had planned on shooting against the lovely white buildings that line the town centre but it was just too busy and I'm not about posing in front of people! Instead I opted to flounce around in the much quieter but just as lovely, Jephson Gardens.


I'm not going to lie, I'm actually really happy with how these photographs turned out. Sean is getting pretty good with my camera and I'm actually learning how to pose? I wont be winning Britains Next Top Model anytime soon but I can definitely feel myself getting more confident with everyone outfit shoot I do!

I really hope you guys like this outfit! I'd love to see a few of your outfit posts, link them below or send them over to me on twitter!

OOTD | THESE BOOTS


As you've probably seen if you follow me over on Twitter, I have recently started my quest to find a proper adult job. That's right, I'm getting out of retail! Well hopefully I will be anyway. So with a brand new job comes a brand new dress code, no more gross baggy polo shirt uniforms for once.

I have already started to pick up some staple workwear items (fancy a haul vid?) mostly just trousers and shirts at the moment, but I thought it would be fun to pop together some outfits that are a bit more fashionable. 


- Outfit One -


- Outfit Two -



- Outfit Three -

Although I don't actually have a new job lined up just yet, (hire me plz) I am very excited to start putting my work wardrobe together and these are the kind of things I would really like to wear. 

Which outfit is your favourite?
