Style: Sequins & Sunshine

Sequins & Sunshine

You know the expression, ‘Suns out, Bums out’? Well, I’m trying VERY hard not to bend over and live up to this one-liner. I can’t deny, this is tricky for me, I’m pretty much the clumsiest person in the world and I spend my life fumbling around on the floor for my keys, cash card and food. Bella Swan ain’t got nothing on me! Also, my legs aren’t super-skinny like all those ‘inspo-shots’ on Instagram, but no biggie. I’d rather let my pale, chubby legs roam free on the internet rather than photoshop them to be something they are not. I’m lucky enough to have a lot of people read my blog (which is so amazing and thank you all so much!) but I’m pretty sure none of you are here for a daily dose of leg-goals so I’m gonna just show them as they are!

Shine On

This is ASOS Sequinned Jacket is one of those things I saw online, fell in love with and then thought ‘When am I ever gonna wear it!?’. As soon as it came, I threw it on over my dress and answered my own question, ‘Right now!’.  Aside from wearing it around the the house, it’s also perfect for festivals, parties, dinner dates and Sunday afternoon ice cream runs. The way I see it, if you spend yourself thinking clothes are too fabulous to wear, then you would never buy anything amazing ever again.

    I’m digging the sass here, girlfriend. Sequins are for the bold of heart! And don’t discount those legs one bit.

    Well done you for not wanting to photoshop them! You’re much braver than me for wearing something so short, I must say, and I think you’ve got fab legs! x
