Style: A School Run Less Ordinary

I'd like to think I'm the queen of casual. I don't tend to dress up for much if I'm honest. If can get away with jeans and a jacket or a jumpsuit, I'll do it. BUT even though I like to do casual, I don't like to fade into the background. So I'll always try and make my outfit a little different. Whether that's a dash of colour, a big earring, or even one of my myriad of hair colours. 

Today was all about that little splash of colour courtesy of a sale bargain I picked up from Simply Be. This Orange Leopard Print Top is a complete beaut. I sized up to a 24 though and I'm glad I did, it's just right.

I teamed it with my fave and over-worn jersey peg legs from ASOS, white trainers from H&M and this gorgeous oversized camo jacket I picked up at the weekend from In the Style Curve at Curve Fashion Festival. 

The cute earrings are from Monki, I've been living in them since I got them. My love for massive earrings doesn't seem to be waning yet so long live my Pat Butcher aesthetic. 

Now I don't suppose I'm your average mum on the school run, and I do suppose there'll be a point when Pops gets fed up of her brightly coloured, silly haired mum. But tough, she's going to have to put up with it, because I don't plan on changing!

Style: Flirty Figleaves

Oh hello there! Well it's a bit of a raunchy one today and I'm not even sorry because this lingerie set from Figleaves Curve range is just so damn delicious. As we go crashing into Autumn, the rich colours and sumptuous golden embroidery are everything. 

The attention to detail on this set is massively impressive, I love the gold clasps on the straps, the little tag on the pants and cute bows on both. 

HELLO gorgeous back detail. The split straps, the cheeky bottom detail. It's just all so fabulous! And sexy as hell! And want to know the best part of all? It's actually mega comfortable. I've worn this set all day, out and about and found it really wearable!  

Figleaves have a spectacular range of lingerie including specific plus size lingerie ranges with a great size range, so they're definitely worth checking out!

Style: Aglaë meets Navabi

A few weeks ago I introduced you to the much anticipated Arched Eyebrow x Navabi collection and now I'm mega chuffed to share with you a piece from the Aglaë meets Navabi collection

Gah. Isn't it good? I'll be honest, I'm regretting not going bare legged but I just thought it was a tiny bit too short for my comfort zone, but I think I'm going to bite the bullet and dare to bare next time. 

It's true, it's mega girly for me, but I love the stripe pattern and eye embroidery, it's just so good! And the sleeve makes my heart race, seriously. (I know, I'm ridiculous).

The dress is a lightweight cotton with eye detail embroidery, size-wise it's fairly generous, so if you do air on the side of small in your size, I'd recommend sizing down. The dress fastens with a press stud, and then the tie belt over that so it feels a little more secure. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the collection and if you drop by the website, there's a huge plus size clothing sale on at the mo too. Bag a bargain while you can!

Giveaway: Boobie Beads

Hey everyone! I've got a giveaway for all the mamma's today, the lovely folk at Boobie Beads have sent me this cute necklace for one of you to win! The beads are made from 100% silicone which makes them a perfect teething/general baby chewing aid! 

I remember when I had Pops, I didn't wear jewellery for years because she was constantly pulling and chewing it, I love how these mean you can wear a bit of jewellery while occupying baby plus it's all completely safe for baby to have a good chew on! 

All you have to do is the rafflecopter thingy below, and bob's your uncle!

Good luck!

Style: Oversized Winners with Monki

I first discovered Monki about 4 years ago when I bought a banging handbag from them. It was only in the last year though that I discovered their oversized fits from various plus babes, and although they're not specifically plus size, they do have pieces that will work for plus bodies. 

I'm on my sixth or seventh bit from them now, I'll stick to oversized pieces, and go for a Large or XL, and so far, my size 22 body has fit into all of them. I know some have reported problems with neck and sleeve size, so if you do want to try ordering from them, just be aware if you're a bit chunkier on the arms or neck, then it's something to think about in certain styles.   

The shirt I'm wearing in today's post is the oversized sleeveless blouse in the XL and there is loads of room in it, I'd say it would fit a 24/26 easily. This style really just plays into all my minimalist dreams, with an 80s twist. It's safe to say I was completely enjoying myself this day. It's effortless, comfortable and dare I say cool? Everything I look for in an outfit.

If you're looking for bold prints, loose silhouettes, and something a little different, why not give Monki a try?
