So as a curvy girly there are some things i should probably steer clear of.... i feel like jumpsuits are one of those items, but i could not resist this amazing Topshop one! it is sooo comfy, it looks amazing and it can be dressed up with heels too! So this Topshop utility jumpsuit is currently £55 you can get it here, the kind people at Topshop sent me a 20% off code for my birthday so this had to be my purchase! Now i sized up to a 10 because there is nothing worse than a ill fitting jumpsuit and i think it being looser is more casual and comfortable and is definitely the style i was after i wanted something i could chill out in on a Sunday, wear shopping on a Saturday and even wear it out for cocktails on a Friday night and this definitely ticked all the boxes! I kept the styling simple with my Top Gun inspired aviators, Primark heels and a Topshop necklace...

So back in the day when i started falling in love with fashion there were two little fashionista's who really showed me the fun of fashion and really inspired me for the next 10 years... these two fashionistas are obviously Mary-Kate and Ashley (yes the super famous child celebrity twins), they are of course known for their acting careers when they were young and for being the richest children on the planet but its really in their later life when they really started to catch my attention, they became so unique and dressed so individually and really have been the inspiration behind a lot of huge trends over the past 10 years; now they are the CEO's of The Row and Elizabeth and James along with a variety of other fashion businesses and have really established themselves as key players in the contemporary fashion scene, they have spent along time trying to get away from their celebrity status and have really achieved something amazing without using their names to promote it.... Now back to the fashion inspiration, they experiment with looks, push boundaries and beat to the sound of their own drums and i have always loved their looks and have always had a stash of their images on my computer for inspiration when i need it... so here are a few of my favourite looks......

So stripes are never too far from my thoughts when it comes to outfit planning, i find if i go away for a weekend i end up packing at least 3 striped items (normally white with black stripes) and when i go shopping thats normally what i am drawn too... this thin jumper from H&M is amazing it goes with everything, it isn't figure hugging and is a nice muffin top covering length and it is perfect for this transitional weather we seem to be having, now i bought this jumper last year in the sale for £5 but this one here is similar but obviously the thinner knits haven't come through yet but this one here is a much lighter fabric but is a lot more striped (as this does make a difference to how its worn), so i have gone with another of my wardrobe staples for this outfit... blue jeans!! now i had the most amazing pair of black moto style coated jeans from Boohoo that i wore literally to death (knee holes, seam holes but i had to draw the line at the crotch holes that appeared) so i have not been able to replace these jeans in my wardrobe so i have found myself wearing my other go to pair of denim which is these H&M jeans, now H&M denim is expensive but its surprisingly good, these are just a mid rise light wash skinny and they are worn constantly, never in my life would i have paid £40 for denim but when i worked for them they had so many amazing offers i had to take advantage and I'm now completely converted and once they have in my perfect black jeans i will definitely be buying! look out for offers as H&M do tend to focus on denim a few times a year and you can end up buying one pair and getting another half price which is always amazing!!
So i have parted my stripes and denim with another staple of mine... Over the knee boots! i am literally obsessed! i have flat pairs and high heeled pairs these ones are very similar to the Public Desire ones which you can find here (get 10% off if you sign up to their newsletter) i wear over the knee boots at least 3 times a week especially in this weather as i can wear thick socks and I'm still keeping warm! and they go with everything, quite often i will just wear them with black tights and a dress and they always look fab.
So my sparkly vintage jacket is not part of my daily uniform but i do love it and its such a statement piece that it goes perfectly with casual outfits, this one i purchased at the clothes show a few years ago and it doesn't get many outings (theres not many places here that can handle a sparkly statement jacket), so i have also styled my outfit up with my Zara fur gilet which has been one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe over the past few years, it goes with everything it keeps me warm and always makes a statement, pieces like this are always worth investing in.
So i am not a major hat person but this winter a wide brim hat has been my saviour! this one normally sits on the parcel shelf of my car so its to hand on bad hair days or when its rainy and miserable, the main issue i have with these hats is they sit in my eye line I'm not sure if i pick rubbish ones or if my head is just not the right size! this one is a children's one as i was struggling to find one that fit properly!
Any way hope everyone is loving this rare sunshine!

So after over indulging on colour for Valentines Day i have had to balance it out with my normal colours and uniform of blacks, blues and leather pants! So i am in love with this outfit (so much more than i thought i would be) I have purchased this new bodysuit from H&M which you can find here, they are currently offering 10% off and free delivery at the moment which is amazing and also since opening their DC in the UK it has really sped up the delivery time! no more waiting weeks it is literally days! I paired my bodysuit with my fave faux leather pants which again are a H&M purchase, the ones i have on are rather old but you can get similar ones here and i am in love with these too, i love the fact people like the Kardashians with real curves have dared to rock bodysuits and trousers, normally unless your stick thin you feel as though you should be covering your bum as much as possible but these ladies really have made it fashionable to embrace your curves and show them off! Now i purchased a blazer dress from Miss Guided after obsessing over them for ages and being so inspired by the Balmain ones, i am keeping this for my Hen Do in April but i thought there was no harm in wearing it as a maxi blazer is there? I love how it really brings a different dimension to the outfit compared to a standard fitted blazer and i think it will be my go to jacket for a night out now especially when i can button it up if need be! You can get the blazer here and if you sign up with Miss Guided you get 20% off!! Ive paired everything with my Primarni shoes and French Connection necklace and a scarf from Zara; i actually braved my hair up for the pictures something that people who know me well will know i hardly ever do! But looking at the pictures i actually quite like it!! and i even attempted my own eye make up again something i am RUBBISH at! Hence sunglasses in most photos!
