Let Me Take You Out




Top - Topshop / Skirt - Primark / Coat - H&M / Watch - Michael Kors 5055

I'm terrible for holding on to clothes that no longer fit me. I bought this top right before I found out I was pregnant with Chloe when I was at my lowest weight. Its a teeny tiny size 8 and up until now I haven't been able to wear it. It still a bit tight & that probably shows but I've missed this top! I adore the detailing. Peter pan collar & lace - whats not to love? It makes me feel a bit princess-y & that can only be a good thing. Sometimes its nice to hunt through your wardrobe for long forgotten about pieces & its cheaper too.

I think I'm doing pretty well with my new year's resolutions! I've been eating really healthily and *shock horror* not one bag of crisps nor one bar of chocolate has passed my lips. Thats a pretty big deal for someone who used to have at least one of each every day. I don't even miss my multiple weekly visits to Greggs! It seems to already be paying off as my face doesn't look half as bloated as it did last week. I've spent this week going to loads of different baby groups as its good for Chloe and it helps take my mind off more stressful things. I've bought a couple of new beauty bits because the offers were too good to resist (oops) but otherwise all my money has gone on food & bills. Hopefully I can keep this up because I feel pretty proud of myself right now!

  7. You look amazing and your waist is so teeny tiny :D this outfit is lovely, want that skirt!! :D

    Well done you on such a good start to your resolutions! I have managed to stick within my daily calories so far but am still too scared to weigh myself, on Monday I might finally take the plunge and see if I've put on a ton of Christmas weight! Wish me luck.

  8. Your top is beautiful and doesn't look small on you at all!! Do you ever look on charity shops for clothes or would you stick to high street and designers?

  23. I have this skirt in black and always forget about it, going to dig it out. I've been trying to spend less on clothes and invested in a few good skin care items. I'm sure we all have enough clothes, I would prefer to spend money on a nice day out x
