What I Wore March 18th

This was an ordinary work outfit although I did meet some friends afterwards. I look awful - I've been quite ill. But I really like this top and cardigan combo. Such pattern! 

The top is leopard print at the front and plain black at the back. The heart cardigan is from the Beth Ditto collection way back. I liked the outfit a lot.

Bujourzee photoshoot

At the end of February my mum and I went to a photoshoot at Bujourzee in Leeds. She had got the deal off Groupon and gave me it for Christmas. We had lunch first, then went into their studio where we had our hair and make up done. We had our photos taken for quite a while - some in front of a blank wall, some in front of a pink background, a black background, a lit up netting, and finally some "boudoir" shots on a mattress. We had to wait while they edited them and then got to choose a few. I'm not sharing them all, but here's a few.

I look like Adele here

Both of us

I really recommend them if you want a similar shoot!

What I Wore March 15th

March 15th was Sheffield Zine Fest! I had a table to sell my zines and I also did FOUR HOURS of workshops (Lee looked after my stall while I ran them.). I did two workshops, twice. I did my body positivity one and was really empowered by the people I had joining in. I also did a mail art one which had lots of supplies and paper folding, people seemed to enjoy it.

I wore this dress and got lots of compliments on it. It is a Scarlett and Jo one from Evans and I got it in the sale for the bargain price of £35. Plus I had a gift card so it only cost me £15! It's pink underneath with a lace overlay. I wore it with my Dr Martens to amp up the badass factor.

I'm never knowingly under-dressed!

What I Wore March 9th

I was contacted by Marisota to see if I'd like to review something from their Mark Heyes collection. I chose this dress because I love the pattern. I hadn't had chance to wear it but on 9th March Lee took me away to Harrogate. It was a birthday present and it was in the same hotel that we spent the first night of our honeymoon 9 years ago!  We went swimming in the hotel and then ate there too for the bargain price of £5 each!

Most of the other people in the hotel were older people on those coach holidays so we definitely looked a bit different to them and got some stares (Lee has blue hair currently and I am fat and have visible tattoos), but we had a good time.

Dress was gifted to me for review

An old faithful

I can't remembered exactly when I wore this dress recently, but it was in my photos so here we go. I regularly pull out this dress when I need to throw something on that feels comfortable but looks stylish. I love the stripes on this dress, I love the swishy skirt, I love how it makes my boobs feel. I sometimes pair it with a bright cardigan but today I was wearing it with this crochet knit cardigan, also from New Look

Dress and cardigan, both New Look, both old.

What I Wore March 8th and a trip to the seaside

Where I'm from in the middle of the country there's no sea so I'm very envious of those who have it close by. Every now and then I get antsy and demand to be taken to the seaside! And so Lee and I decided to combine a trip to Durham to visit his family with a trip to South Shields. We played in the arcades, we had ice cream, and we sat on the beach for a while. It was cold but fresh, and so lovely!

You can't see my dress perfectly but it's from Asos, it's a swing dress which I like, and it has POCKETS. The hoodie is from New Look and has inbuilt earphones in the hood strings which is quite cool. The boots are from Simply Be. 

Hope you enjoy my deserted beach pictures too!

What I Wore March 4th

I went to work and met a friend for lunch, so this is a semi-casual work outfit. The skirt is from Yours, I've worn it here before. The top was from Yours too, about a million years ago. The cardigan was from a clothes swap in Sheffield, it's a size 22 which I am not but I think it looks good with the top button buttoned and the rest not.

Bonus picture of my nails!
