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?
Lately, I’ve been a bit disenchanted with my usual shopping hot spot, it just hasn’t been doing it for me. That means that I’ve been doing a lot looking around at other places to shop online lately. The one that has caught my eye is Boohoo. Now, I’ve been buying from Boohoo since the launch of their plus line, but lately, they are bringing out the goooods! They are bang on with the recent trends and they usually have some sort of sale on.
I’m on a spending ban at the moment, but I went through and decided to share all my current favourites. (Click the product to be taken to it)
What’s your pick?
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?
