For the first time in approximately a million years, I actually took some outfit pictures the other week. You’re shocked, I know. I’ve actually been feeling in a bit of a style rut recently. I find shopping for clothes really hard, as the high street doesn’t really accommodate for curvy girls all that well, and I’m fussy as hell. I’m challenging myself to put together some different outfits though, and I’ve found a few fun new combinations and items that I actually really enjoy. I’m going to try and start documenting my personal style more, in a bid to actually have some, instead of just wearing jeans and geeky tees all the time.
This outfit was worn for a date night in Cardiff. As an early birthday present, my Dad bought tickets for me and Dave to see Rent at the Millennium Centre. The production is still touring, and I highly recommend it. It was truly incredible.
We had a bit of a heatwave that weekend, so we had a stroll around Mermaid Quay, had some dinner and relaxed in a bar with a whisky. Bit of a perfect evening all round.
This outfit was perfect for the warmer weather. I felt summery, but when the temperature had dropped by the time we left the theatre, the jacket was a welcome addition. It was fun to shop my own wardrobe too; the jacket is one I’ve had forever and haven’t worn in a long time. The menswear style really appeals to me, especially with it’s soft, silky fabric adding some femininity. The dress is a Primark bargain, I think, from last summer, with the waist nipped in with a belt.
Bring on the return of some personal style to these pages!

All of these items are a few seasons old (at least!), but I found some similar items, if you want to shop the look.
