the reformation dress

I bought this dress back in November when Reformation had their London pop up (mainly out of excitement and the need to buy something) and had yet to find a chance to wear it. Due to the obvious boob issues, it's not for your casual day out but I thought a holiday was the best excuse yet.

I actually tried on a UK 8 in the pop-up, and went on to order a 6 as it was too big, only for it to turn up with the exact same fit. I have taken in the front a little bit but it's made very little difference as my boobs still like to jump out whenever they see fit. Not ideal when located in a Spanish restaurant in the mountains, but at least it has taught me to invest in some strong tape.

I'd love to get more wear out of it as it's so pretty, and would look lovely with a nice pair of heels but I'm pretty much a 'Netflix and nod-off by nine' kind of girl.

how to be fancy

M&S M&S M&S M&S M&S M&S M&S M&S M&S
MARKS AND SPENCER dress*, ALL SAINTS leather jacket, TOPSHOP boots (old, similar), ASOS belt, ASOS t-shirt and CHLOE bag

Apologies if you were looking for genuine advice on being fancy, as I'm not going to be serving any up. Instead, I'm going to be talking about this cute little Marks and Spencer's number.

When challenged to pick a dress I'd wear to a formal event, I felt a bit lost. I'm not very good at feeling fancy, and suited for such events. I think it's rooted back to when I dyed my hair red and got all my piercings and felt like a sore thumb at any of James' families' do's, but I just don't think I do 'formal' very well. It's likely a confidence thing too, but I always feel like I look odd so I decided to play this out in the only way I know: add boots and a leather jacket. 

I'm a firm believer that your day usually vastly improves when you're feeling good about yourself, and confident in what you're wearing so the finishing touches are always important for me.

You're probably wondering why I went for potentially the most prom-suited dress M&S had to offer, but I felt up for the challenge and I think I suitably bought it down to my level. What do you think? The addition of a leather jacket and some ankle boots always toughens a pretty dress up IMO, and the t-shirt underneath makes it all the more 'me', plus tea dresses are bang on trend at the moment and I think this is a great alternative. I think I managed to make it work, whilst still feeling 'fancy' enough for a wedding or such.

gingham skirt

MISSGUIDED skirt*, ASOS t-shirt, OFFICE shoes (old but similar), CÉLINE sunglasses and SANDRO bag*

This outfit is a real 'nothing' outfit, but still a good holiday choice all the same. I packed very little in terms of 'outfits' so struggled to piece things together when I was there, plus I only took one handbag which was very limiting in terms of photos so apologies for the Sandro spam.

This skirt really nails a few trends, which isn't something I usually strive to do so I guess that's a plus. With gingham, a-line and ruffles all ticked off it's a bit of a winner and so reasonably priced. I definitely recommend if you're looking to dip your toe into the gingham waters.
