My lovely boyfriend Adam is whisking me away for a little romantic trip away as he’s been constantly working. I’m so so excited!! He’s been hinting loads about it being “special”, so I’m super excited, and decided I wanted to really dress up! As a twist to my blog, I decided I’d show some snaps of Adam’s fashion choices too, and i’ll do his snaps first 🙂
The first piece, which sadly isn’t coming with us is this cute green floral shirt from Topman. I absolutely LOVE this shirt, and he looks gorgeous in it, but he hates it – which sucks! Plus he bought it which makes no sense..
The next shirt is this cute Topman green cord shirt which he looks cute in, which is coming with!
Adam currently has an obsession with camo, so I made him this cool tshirt. It’s however not coming with us because he wears too much black!!
Also part of Adam’s new camo love is this Abandon Ship Apparel shirt, which is also not being packed!
A cool black shirt that IS coming with us, is this new shirt from Size? from a brand called Rook. It’s a bear version of Biggie Smalls! He couldn’t decide on black skinnies or grey skinnies but settled on grey so he wasn’t too goth.
Last tee he’s taking is this cool will smith shirt I bought him for his birthday!
Next there’s what I’m taking!
I started off trying things on with some shapewear underneath.
Here’s me rocking my my shapewear. It’s quite difficult to get on (for a disabled girl anyway) so adam had to help! It’s good that you can wear your own bra rather than squishing your boobs in!
Tried this outfit first! The black off the shoulder peplum is a Primark size 20 and is quite roomy on the waist (but tight on the bust) and the skirt is a Primark size 16. I quite liked this outfit together, but I felt it was too “plain”, so I decided to team the items with other choices. Please excuse my boyfriend in the background – he was very bored.
I tried the black peplum with a dotted pencil skirt (Primark, size 16) and really liked this combo and decided to pack it.
The red skirt, I put with this black & white striped peplum top with a mesh top and sides. I may not show diversity with what I wear, but I feel super confident in a pencil skirt and peplum top. I find them comfortable and extremely flattering on my shape. This outfit was packed and I will wear it with my little black studded pumps and a Cath Kidston bag.
A peplum/pencil combo I wasn’t impressed with, is this one from eBay. The top is nothing alike the picture and is just too big on my waist and I’m quite disappointed. The skirt however is lovely – I just need to find the RIGHT top to go with. It’s a size 18 very tailored with zero stretch Gok Wan skirt.
On a higher note, I have a new FAVOURITE dress!! Adam just purchased me this gorgeous ditsy print dress from Lady V London (http://www.ladyvlondon.com/Ditsy-Print-Floral-Swing-Dress_A19E9E.aspx) in the sale and I absolutely LOVE it. The colours are absolutely beautiful and I love it so much. I adore the little capped sleeves and the length is perfect on me (I’m wearing it with a petticoat). I’m going to wear it with black pumps and a cute orange vintage handbag which I have! Silly Adam!!
The next dress I decided to pack is this black and white dot number which I made. I couldn’t decide what to wear it with, then I spotted an old fave cardigan.
I popped on this old Primark cardigan with a floral print, and highlighted the red which these bow fronted shoes. I’ve taken a red belt to wear it with too. Adam was VERY bored at this point!
My last outfit is this grey/pink/white dress which I also made. I popped it on with my fave ever nana knitted pink cardi. I’ll wear this tomorrow to travel in!
So, super long blog post. Hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll make sure I blog about my trip when I come back!
