This outfit is something different for me. These are colours that I don’t usually wear. Sure, I have my lemon print dress and I do love yellow, but generally I shy away from a lot of yellow/orange/greens/browns. I really love how this outfit turned out though. I wore it out to dinner and was super comfortable the whole evening.
Nyata are amazing. I’ve been lucky to see their designs numerous times, but sadly, I don’t often have the money to be able to purchase them. Something I wish I could do more is supporting smaller Australian businesses. Nyata is Australian owned but manufactured in Indonesia. They offer smaller runs on their collections so they are all limited edition.
I picked these pants up in a sale after Christmas, the few items I had my eyes on had sold out in my size and I’m always looking for new interesting pants, so I thought I’d give these a try. Finding pants I like can be hard, being an apple shape means pants often look awkward on me, but I’ve found looser harem type pants help. I picked these up in size ‘Gorgeous’ which is a 20-22. They fit great, though are a little long, but that is something easily fixed.
I wasn’t sure if I’d have anything to wear them with, apart from a black top, but then I remembered I picked up this top (it matches my dress) and I really love the whole citrus look of the outfit. I wish I still had my red hair to wear this with!

Oh, and I couldn’t help but do a cheeky internet VS real life photo. Haha. One of the good things about wearing a moonboot is that I can take it off for photos.
What is a colour you don’t often wear?
I fought the urge not to buy this dress for so long, but when LDC had a site wide sale, I ended up caving and snapping it up. I’m glad I did because this dress amuses me to no end. Not only does it have my #2 man crush Tom Hiddleston on it, but he’s wearing flower crowns and it has fun, cute writing scattered over it.
Of course, I had to put on, well, not exactly a flower crown, but my favourite flower headband, to match. Also, first time showing off the new hair colour and cut here on the blog. It had been over a year since I had a trim so tried out a new place at my local store and was really impressed.
This dress is a 2xl, I was a little unsure how it would fit as my other LDC dress is a 3xl and is a perfect fit (See here). I figured it is a stretchy material, so I’d give it a try. Personally, I think it looks great and I’m happy with the fit. The only noticeable difference I find in size is that this dress is a bit shorter and slightly tighter around my boobs, but not so much that it stretches or warps the images.
Look, no arm coverings! Yep, still going strong on that new year goal! Melbourne weather has been it’s normal hot and then cold yo-yo weather, but on those warm days, I’m enjoying the air of my arms! I hope that eventually I won’t get anxious at all about showing them.
I paired the dress with my magical unicorn flats. My foot is fractured again and i’m wearing my boot periodically and resting it up. It’s painful but not as bad as the last time. I need to invest in some heel grips for these shoes, I think ASOS have changed the sizing of their shoes lately as I used to fit their 8’s perfectly and now they are slightly too big. Heel grips should make them the perfect fit though.

If you could have anyone’s picture of a dress, who would you choose?
If you follow me on social media, you may remember me going on about this dress aaaages ago. I found it online at Crossroads and just loved the print. I love a good lemon tree/ orange tree/ palm leaf print. By the time I finally left the house to go into a store to try it on, I was worried there wouldn’t be any left. I was lucky and they had the dress in my size, as well as a top in the matching print, so I put them on layby!
That was over a month ago, in fact, that was last year! I finally got the layby out last week and wore the dress out yesterday when I went and saw Moana at the movies. Oh, you should totally go and see Moana, it was amazing and made me want to head back to Aitutaki.
I’m also trying to be more comfortable showing off my arms. I admit, my upper arms are an area I’m still quite insecure about. I will often throw on a light cardigan or that but not anymore. No one gave me a second look though, no one but me cared about my arms. Sometimes I think you can be your own worst enemy. So here is to me, rocking my flabby arms in public more!
Do you love a good fruit print? Any in particular?
