What I Wore | Black & Grey

So Autumn is in full swing and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thrilled. I love the colder weather and wrapping up warm! This is the last piece from SheIn and I'm still impressed! I will admit I didn't hold high expectation and like I mentioned in my previous posts that the only reason I tested them out was to test the quality! I chose this jacket and it's surprisingly warm! At a 14, I chose the XL and It just about fits, so the sizes are teeny. On that note, however, they have just introduced Plus Sizes which is pretty cool! It doesn't close on me, but this is the type of jacket that you'd leave open anyway so it suits me down to the ground! 
I wore this with a tunic long sleeve top, leggings and a pair of ridiculously comfortable over the knee boots, which I picked up before Christmas last year. They're stretchy so if you have a wider calf then they'll still stretch to accommodate! I love an all black outfit with a touch of grey. It's really easy to wear and somewhat effortless. To jazz up the outfit, I added a very statement necklace that I picked up in Paris a few years ago.  This has been my go-to outfit over the past few weeks and it doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon!

What I Wore | Aztec Cardigan

Like I mentioned in one of my last posts, I decided to test Sheinside out for quality and fit - being bigger than most of the bloggers that try out their clothing. As a size 14 I chose carefully and I was happy with my first dress - and I have two more items to review for you all. I went for a cardigan as I wear them all throughout the Winter and I felt that this one would be perfect paired with black - my staple colour throughout the Winter!
The quality is surprisingly good! The material isn't itchy and although not the warmest of cardigans it's going to be a great layering piece - I went for the biggest size (L) and it fits well. The arms aren't tight and I've loads of room to move. This type of Cardigan is meant to be worn open and it just sits nicely (In my opinion anyway....!) I absolutely adore the print - especially the Burgundy as I have heaps of burgundy accessories so I can accessorise this cardigan very easily!

I wore this with a tunic dress from H&M, which I bought two+ years ago. You really can never have enough "staple" pieces in your wardrobe - you'll never have "nothing" to wear ever again. I paired it with my Over the Knee boots from River Island that I got before Christmas last year and they're so comfortable. They're a size too big (they sold out so fast) but I just wear thick fluffy socks with them!To completely the look I added a burgundy necklace and a burgundy floppy hat!

What I Wore | Cocoa Brown Passion,Persistence, Pink Party!

When I was invited along to the Passion,Persistence,Pink Event in the Shelbourne I knew I'd have to make somewhat of an effort. The event was to reveal the brand new Cocoa Brown Products and we were all excited! As you saw with the post yesterday you know my thoughts on them! I've always been such a support of both Marissa Carter and Cocoa Brown so it was an honor to attend and to listen to Marissa. She's an incredibly talented and inspiring women and she inspires me beyond belief. 
I didn't really know what to wear, all I did know that I wanted to wear something pink and girly. I fancied something new and was browsing the sale section on Asos and this dress stood out to me. It was under €20 but it was in the Maternity section. I did a "Yolo" and ordered it. Worse case scenario I could always return it. When it arrived It was very poofy and it wouldn't be what I'd call "flattering", but I loved the dress and I felt girly in it, so I wore it and felt great. I did add a belt to draw attention to my waist and give me a bit more of a silhouette. I posted some photo's on my Facebook Page if you want to see it from other angles!
The Lavish Alice Cape is actually a size 10! At the time they only had a size 14 or a size 10 and I found the 14 too big on my shoulders so I decided to try on the 10 and although it's not my size it fits really well, so I scooped it up and hot footed it to the till. This whole outfit isn't specifically for my size and it somehow worked! It just goes to show that no matter what try everything on and make sure a garment fits the way you want it to and ignore the label! My one rule of advice is to try everything one and you'll be more often than not pleasantly surprised!
