Fat, Femme and Formal

Outfit first conceived in the 
Simply Be store in the MetroCentre

Sometimes an outfit just sits in your wardrobe, waiting for the perfect occasion to throw it on and be awesome in it. 

Sometimes that occasion never comes, and your clothes are sad. 

This time though, I thought PAH! And just threw on the awesome clothes for the office this morning.

It is a pastely, floral, lace, summer assault on the eyes. It is a mix match of print, material and styles, but I love it!

I've been lusting after the Look skirt since I first spotted it, but I am so glad I tried it instore first, as this is the 26 for comfort at the hips. 

I paired it with the Alice and You Lace Shell top out of changing room convenience - so I could try two items on and go out to show the fit on them both, without being topless or bottomless! And ended up LOVING the combination.

I often hear those with short hair struggle with their femininity - I actually find it the other way round. I find it very easy to be feminine with the shorter hair, as I feel the two balance each other out, whereas if I go for a bit of a slouchy outfit, I feel I lose my femme edge. 

What am I prattling on about? Outward showings of gender identity are going to be always a complicated area to bring into the blogging arena, but when the baring my unshaven legs (not as an act of rebellion, more as an act of comfort!) did not cause the world to end, when I blogged about it a few weeks ago, I thought I would venture into this a little bit more!

So, fat, femme and formal seemed to sum up my style today, and the office hardly blinked an eye!

Just remember: Like Clothes, Wear Clothes!

Much love my lovelies,

  2. I love your comments on gender identity as much as I adore that skirt. Bravo!

    1. Aw thanks. I feel like I was waffling on just a little too much mind x
