Hi my little lovelies, I hope you’re all doing well.
So remember that wedding I spoke about a few times in different posts? Well it finally happened!
Friday morning my house was hectic, trying to get myself ready as well as my little brother was a nightmare.
But it was all worth it, and I decided it would be the perfect opportunity for me to write my very first full outfit post! From head to toe, I will be talking you through every decision that concluded in me wearing this outfit.
I bought the jumpsuit months ago, I eyed it up one day in the Quiz section when I was walking through Debenhams and knew that was what I wanted to wear for this occasion. So I bought it there and then because knowing my luck if I’d have left it, it would have disappeared and I wouldn’t have been able to find anything else as nice.
As soon as I bought the jumpsuit I knew exactly what I wanted to wear with it. I had an image in my head and that’s where the hard part came in. Finding the pieces to complete this image.
First I went on a hunt for shoes (and probably should have got a bag at the same time). I knew what colour I wanted; mint green. I, well, Nathan found the perfect shoes in New Look. They were the perfect colour, and rather comfy as well. Comfort was a big factor as I knew I was going to be wearing them all day. So bought them for around £20.
Next was the hunt for a bag. I found the perfect one online, from ASOS. It was the right colour and the exact design/style I wanted, just a reasonably sized, plain clutch bag. But I did the worst thing I could’ve done and thought “I’ll buy that next payday” and guess what? It wasn’t there next payday. I kept telling myself it was going to be fine, mint green’s quite a popular summer colour. BUT NO, I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE. All the ones I found were either too big, too dark or had too much detail. I was having a nightmare.
Whilst this frantic bag search was commencing I was also hunting high and low for a blazer and all the ones I had seen were fitted and just a regular, hip length but I wanted a long-line, loose fitted one and I thought I was going to have to pay ridiculous amounts to get what I wanted but out of luck I found the perfect long-line off-white blazer from Primark for the bargain price of £10 in the sale. I was over the moon!
In the end I ended up ordering a bag off eBay on Monday which is pretty late considering it was only 5 days until the wedding itself. Unfortunately it wasn’t the exact colour I wanted but I had no other choice at this point, I needed a bag.
Anyway, on Wednesday Nathan and I decided to go for a wonder around one of the local retail parks and I’m so happy we did! THANK THE LORD FOR DOROTHY PERKINS! I walked through the store and I spotted the perfect clutch bag down the back of the store. In my head it was like walking up the stairway to heaven with this bag at the end. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy that I went into Dorothy Perkins before in my life. It was fate. This bag was the perfect colour, perfect size, nice and plain. At a bargain of £10 it was amazing, and less than half the price I paid for the one off eBay.
Instead of doing the usual ‘monthly favourites’ post I thought I’d switch it up and do my ASOS top picks instead! The past few weeks I’ve been flicking through my ASOS app, pinning bits and bobs to my Pinterest, creating birthday wishlists, or being just generally bored in my breaks in work or while Nathan’s playing Xbox. But my ASOS app is always there! Always active on my phone wherever I go, it’s slowly turning into my most-used fashion/shopping app because it has the majority of my favourite brands on there.
So, those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I recently ordered from Boutique of Molly for the first time!
Overall I’m really happy with my order from BOM, the quality of their clothes are great, they have such a friendly team their AND super-quick shipping! If you haven’t already, I’d definitely recommend ordering from them!
