This post was originally meant to go up on Sunday as I was planning to wear this to Easter dinner with my family HOWEVER on Sunday morning I woke up with the most horrendous stomach bug imaginable and so much of my Easter break consisted of living in my pjs with my head taking up full residence in the toilet... Oh boy.
Fear not though guys, I'm finally back on form! YES.
This outfit turned out better than I expected it to. When I'd hung it all on the back of my wardrobe door on Saturday evening (in preparation for Easter Sunday) I thought that I was maybe being a little too adventurous, but I think it works well! Last week I was sent a lovely little #FashionEaster package from Missguided which contained this gorgeous quilted number as well as some chocolate eggs, makeup and a fluffy chick. Unfortunately because it's extremely body con (and I don't currently own a nude-coloured slip dress), the white parts of the dress are a touch see-through so rather than flashing my bum to you poor unsuspecting souls, I decided to layer over the dress with a floaty, pleated skirt from Primarni. See, there's a solution for every problem (even fashion-based ones)! Teamed with this cute Michael van der Ham granny-esque cardigan and some lovely accessories, it seems to work quite well!
In other news, yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a fashion show at my local haunt, Telford Shopping Centre. The cool cats at the centre are currently showcasing the latest offerings from retailers in a series of catwalk shows which are taking place over the duration of this weekend (so if you're in the area, go check it out). Whilst I was there, I decided it would be rude not to go and make a few cheeky purchases for my holiday in June! I met up with Charlotte and we spent the afternoon perusing the shops, eating cake and debating what we're actually doing with our lives - quite fun (and philosophical) on the whole. Of course, we spent way too much money and I've ended up with lots of Primark, Body Shop and H&M goodies... Oops!
