Cut Out Shirt Dress Review

Hey Lovelies! 
You may notice I've got my hair coloured. It was virgin territory for me, as I've never touched my hair in my whole 23 years of existence! Crazy, huh? I went for Balayage in stead of Ombre, as I wanted a more natural look. Now I love it, but I did have a "Oh God, what have I done" moment, that night but I think it was just missing my  dark brown hair. I'm over it now, and love it. Sure nothing  there's wrong with a bit of change!
Whenever I think of Spring, I think of pretty floral dresses. I've an array of floral dresses in all shapes and styles, so I'm nearly spoilt for choice each Spring. However, when I saw this dress on Simply Be's Website, I feel in love. The cut out detail is gorgeous, and so different, from anything I've ever seen. Simply Be never let me down, they've gorgeous clothes, and are becoming more and more fashion forward, and pushing the boundaries in terms of Plus Size Fashion, which I of course think is fantastic, and well needed.
I love this dress, It's so pretty and feminine, and perfect for Spring. I've worn this loads of times in the last while, and can say how comfy it is. The sleeves are a nice length as they're not too short not too long, so it's perfect when the sun has finally decided to shine! It also sits mid thigh, which is perfect for me as I don't like dresses longer. I love the subtle floral print, as it's muted so you can wear this dress day and night. My favourite part is of course the gorgeous cut out collar. It's such a unique detail, that screams designer. It's great to see a Plus Size retailer making unique touches to their clothes, as more often then not, you get a basic range, just in different colours. This dress is great quality, and for less than €50 it's a steal!

New Look Summer Wish List

Hey Lovelies,
With Summer fast approaching I for one, am on the look out to update my Summer wardrobe. I love floral patterns, mini dresses and neon so shopping for summer clothes is a joy for me! For Summer clothes you still want quality, as let's face it, you want to get bang for your buck even if you're not spending as much on it as your Winter wardrobe. For price and quality, I always go to New Look. Arguably one of the best priced clothing on the High Street, you're bombarded with good quality clothing at a cheaper price. I'm constantly in and out of New Look, as I'm sure you've all seen on here! Shopping for my Summer Wardrobe, I like to know that I could wear it for two years at least, and I've even gotten clothes from New Look, that are now pushing  four years, that I still pull out!

New Look
New Look is full of gorgeous floral dresses, short shorts and pretty summer tops! Both available in their main range, and in their New Look Inspire range. You can never go wrong with pretty little summer dresses. From Denim dungaree style ones, to comfy cotton ones, you're bound to find something that floats your boat. They  also have pretty floral ones, which would be perfect for your holiday's as they can be dressed down heading to the beach, or dressed up with bright accessories going for dinner. They also have a huge selection of Midi and long sleeved dresses in light fabrics, which would both be ideal for travelling or to wear when it gets a little cooler at night. 

Shorts can be a tricky one, I for one, don't care and would wear the shortest shorts I can head my hands on but I know a lot of girls would be conscious of their legs. New Look have an array of shorts ranging from short to long in every size, so you can find one that will suit your taste. With my boobs, as big as they are I wouldn't be supported enough with a bikini from the high street unfortunately, but If I had smaller boobs, I would definitely pick up with gorgeous daisy print one. The bottoms with the skirt, are not only flattering but extremely cute.

When I go away or even if it's a gorgeous day here, I always throw a jumper in my bag. No matter how hot it is, when you leave the house I know when the sun sets, I'll get a bit chilly! With a nice bright zippy like the one above, you'll still feel summery but you'll be kept warm. It's light so you can chuck it in your bag, and it won't take up too much room. Same  goes for a light jumper, bonus points for a cute motif ;) As you're probably aware I love skater skirts, they're easy to match things with, they're comfortable and their girly. You can wear them with tank tops, crop tops or plain jumpers, so they're a versatile piece in your wardrobe, and perfect for Summer. It's not Summer for me if I don't buy loads of neon jewellery and statement necklaces. I've been honestly blown away with New Look's Jewellery as of late, they have a great selection, with gorgeous pieces, that are as cheap as chips! I can't wait for my holiday now, or my next pay check! 

What do you gals think? Are you a fan of New Look?

Blogger Dinner

Hey Lovelies! 
Last week I attended the Benefit Event (post to follow), and then went to meet up with the lovely bloggers  Aisling and Meg. We have a lovely evening of cocktails and dinner in Alfies (a favourite of mine!) Both girls are so lovely, and I had a great time! Even if my head was a little sore the next day ;) Since I had two things to go to, I wore my new Asos Curve top, wet look leggings and my new boots from Topshop. It was easy to wear running around town, but very glam! I ordered two sizes bigger, so it was slightly baggy. I've made great friends through blogging, and really made me more a social butterfly than I already was! It's great meeting like minded people, who don't mind snapping an "ootd" and don't give out when you take a quick snap of your food for Instagram ;)
After dinner, we headed back to Meg's hotel room, and laughed until the early hours! These girls are so funny and had be in stitches! I know this isn't a long post, but I'll be back to normal in the next few days! Things are just pretty hectic at the moment :)
