Faultless Floral | My First Outfit Post

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. 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.

So that was my outfit complete. I was so happy; I had everything I needed to complete the image I had in my head those few months before AND I felt amazing! My body confidence was on a high, I had such an amazing time and everyone looked beautiful!
Do you like this outfit post? Should I dabble in a few more?
