O U T F I T | Paisley

Jumpsuit*: c/o Inlovewithfashion
Fedora: ASOS (similar here)
Necklace*: c/o lola&grace
Boots: Vagabond (similar here)

I've mentioned before that I have a penchant for kimonos, however I also have an unruly obsession with collecting paisley jumpsuits. I currently have FIVE full length paisley jumpsuits in my wardrobe and this Inlovewithfashion specimen is my most recent. I feel like I should be the front woman in a seventies band when I slip this jumpsuit on, which has surely got to be the best feeling in the world! I could be Stevie Nicks' soul sister!

Also, I'm pretty damn chuffed I've found a jumpsuit that actually fits my figure in all the right places. To all those ladies out there with small waists and unfathomably large bottoms - this jumpsuit is the ONE! It fits my waist snuggly whilst leaving enough room for my hips. For that ILWF, I thank you!

O U T F I T | Sporty Spice

Dress*: c/o Yoyo Melody
Trainers: Nike via Office (similar here)
Socks: Nike (similar here)

The trainers and dress combo has me feeling a little like Lily Allen circa the later half of the noughties. Trainers have never been "my thing", as I have a continuous love affair with black, ankle boots. It always felt a little alien to me to slip on a pair of trainers when I wasn't going to the gym or going for a jog. Then after a lot of umm-ing and ahh-ing I took the plunge and invested in these Nike Roshe Run's and it is like walking on pillows! I've quickly gotten over my phobia of wearing trainers for daily errands other than working out.

A little black cami dress has been missing from my overflowing wardrobe floordrobe for some time, so when Yoyo Melody I chose this little number to fill that LBD hole in my life. In the past I've found Asian-based, wholesale sites to be a little smaller and shorter with their sizing, but I was chuffed to see this dress covered my rather rotund derriere with a few inches of fabric to spare!

O U T F I T | Daisy Crazy

Dress*: c/o Sugarhill Boutique
Hat: H&M (old)
Shoes: ASOS (similar here)

The daisy print just doesn't seem to be dying out. It's the perfect amount of girly mixed with grunge. This chiffon, button up smock dress by Sugarhill Boutique is the perfect transitional piece as it caters for whatever weather. When it gets a little colder towards the start of winter I'll be wearing it with tights and a chunky knit cardigan. For now however, I'll be baring my legs until the frost on the ground shows up, which doesn't seem to be that far away!
