I'm not going to lie - I am no skinny lass, I am a curvy lass and as much as I have tried my whole life to be a skinny one I have come to realise that will never happen, it isn't in my bone structure. I am a good sized 14-16 - fairly happy with that, my problem is toning up.
I am also quite tall - at 5ft 10, so sometimes buying clothes is challenging. Take a dresses, for example, many of the lengths are tailored for the UK average girl height 5ft 8. Which means many dress cuts just don't flatter my figure the waistline comes up to my boobs. Also why do they have to be so short - I am no prude but crickey. Dresses my sister would wear - I would wear as tunics or tops.
Anyway, with summer creeping up on us I have been looking for some wardrobe inspiration. I have put together my recent New Look wish list - which I will be buying to wear at a Blogger event coming shortly. I love the variety of clothing New Look stocks and I find their website easy to navigate - It is very handy to have available when I can not always make it into town. Exceptionally fast delivery means I save on petrol.
leather biker jacket, pink lace diphem dress, chunky buckle wedge sandals, turquoise and gold Aztec stack bracelets, blue bead circle necklace
I am a huge fan of the leather biker jacket at the moment, It takes me back to my teens when it was a staple part of my wardrobe. I have it in black at the moment but have been keeping my eye out for a really nice brown one that won't break the bank. This particular jacket I have picked is a respectable £59.99. Team this up with this stylish lace dress gives a perfect summer look - which can be dressed up or down. My favourite thing about the lace dress is the dipped hem because when dresses are too short, I can't carry them off, the dipped hem is very flattering - £42.00.
I chose the wedge sandals because I am terrible in heals, 99% of the time I trip. These are perfect for giving me the height I desire but comfortably safe too - £49.99.
To round the outfit off I have picked these amazing Aztec jewellery pieces. I was drawn to them because of the colours and I particularly like wearing statement pieces. These each cost £6.99 - bargain.
Now all I have to decide is to match the makeup for it.
What do you think of my choices, perhaps you can give me some tips?
