Ah fashion blogging. What a way to make a usually fairly confident 28 year old woman feel like a complete wally! Well never the less, here we are, in a garden with a camera and an outfit I felt like sharing with you today because you know what? It made me feel great!
I struggle with fashion sometimes because I’m not a slim put me in anything and I’ll look fabulous size 8 but I’m not a curvy and fabulous plus size lady – I’m just in between. My size varies from a 10-14 depending on styles and where I shop so sometimes fashion can be quite daunting not really knowing where my body or my (not so bang on trend) style fits in.
I’ve always just dressed how I wanted taking inspiration from the magazines and models in the shops but fundamentally I simply pick up things that suit the image of me that’s in my head or that catch my eye. When I heard dungarees were coming back into fashion the 90’s teenager in me got excited but I soon came to realise that with my shape I’d struggle to find some really flattering trousers that I could wear.
Enter the dungaree dress! I haven’t taken this thing off since I picked it up off the shelves of Forever 21 (size medium for those wondering). It’s so cute and really comfy too with endless ways to wear it. It was hot so I put wore over a little t-shirt and whacked on a big floppy hat with my favourite sandals – instant style! And I really think this dress could suit most shapes and sizes too. I’ve put a skinny belt around mine which I’m not sure is the done thing but I like it and hell, I felt a million dollars sitting in that beer garden drinking my prosecco and soaking up the summer sun in this!
