Outfit August - days 2 and 3

Hi everyone



Well, it's been a busy few days so I've combined days 2 and 3.

I was lucky enough to win tickets to StyleXL on from Leah's blog Just Me Leah so on Saturday I scampered on up to Leicester. I'll write up my day in a separate post but in the meantime, here's what I decided to wear.

I opted for one of my favourite Joe Browns dresses from Simply Be. I've had this a few years now and it's seen me through quite a few parties. It's slightly big on the top half though, so I should probably have sized down. But it's a longer length and very comfy!

Dress - Joe Browns from Simply Be (old) - size 22
Shoes - Marks and Spencer (old)

I love bright jewellery. And these are two of my favourite pieces. The unicorn is from the childrens section of Accessorise and the Cathy necklace was purchased during my last trip up to Manchester when I visited Afflecks. This is one of my most favourite shops ever! I could just just get lost in there and I think I did! The necklace is from Extreme Largeness. I'm not sure if you can still get this style but they lots of others here that I already have my eye on :-)


Today was a lazy day after going to and from Leicester so a casual vest from Marks & Spencer teamed with a very old Joe Browns skirt from Simply Be.

Top - Marks and Spencer (old) - size 20
Skirt - Joe Browns from Simply Be (old) - size 22
Slippers Asda!!

The skirt originally came with bead and sequins, which I'm not a fan of. And true to form, I was finding that where ever I went - I left a trail of beads behind. So I decided to replace them all with some cheap colourful buttons from my local Hobbycraft store. I think they look prety good and I haven't lost one yet!


That's days 2 & 3 for me. Check out these lovely folk to see what they're up to:
