OOTD: An unexpected heatwave

I can fly, I can fly!
Oh the weather likes to have a little laugh at our expense doesn't it. Last week I was frantically scooping up armfuls of tights from M & S and drooling over winter coats, this week the weather has been cracking the flags and I'm back to summer dresses and pastels.
An outfit to suit the rather toasty early September we are having
I'm wearing this outfit to teach my sassy Self employment workshop in. I'm always a little nervous before facing large groups of people and I find if I have my armour on of clothes which make me feel particularly lovely it really helps with pre gig nerves.
This dress makes me feel so pretty

This dress is by Soho's, one of my sponsors and my fave place to shop. I wore it for the publicity photos we took for the vintage pamperbox a few months ago and its seen a lot of action since then.
The colour is so lovely and the strawberry pattern is super cute
Its simply so pretty with it pattern of strawberries and the green is such a nice colour.
Cardigan by good old Primarni
Ive teamed it with a cardigan from primark which Ive knotted at the waist.
My shoes are my Vivienne Westwood homage jellies from the bay of the e and my headscarf is by also from ebay.Its just a pink bandana.
Whose the crazy lady lurking in the shrubbery
I am loving bright pink lipstick at the moment so am wearing Barry M's  lip paint in Vibrant pink with bubblegum pink lip gloss over the top. My eyeshadow is from the Sleek Au natural palette and my bronzer is by MUA.

My necklace is from the Freedom range at Topshop.
Skulls from the Freedom range
Ive gone for a rather large beehive as the bigger the hair, the bigger my confidence-weird but true.

Remember feeling good and looking great has nothing to do with dress size and everything to do with attitude.Never wait to be a certain weight to start enjoying clothes and never reject anything thinking it wont suit your shape. Try it on-you may be surprised.

  1. I love Sohos! I haven't bought anything from them since I had Brandon though...I keep browsing their website longingly then have to turn back to the Asda delivery site. Wah. :(

    That dress is amazing as well - the whole colourscheme of your outfit just gives your skin an amazing glow :) xxx
