Outfit Post – Cheshire Fashion Blog UK

*Affiliate Links.

Hey Fashion Lovers! Another week, another fashion blog for you. I have been slacking the outfit post category for some weeks now. Life got in the way but things are cooling down now so it is back to business as usual in the fashion and style department. This blog started purely as a fashion blog, and I truly enjoy writing about fashion and style, and showing off my personal style.

I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather in Cheshire has been great in the last few days. We have had sunny days and still a bit of rain, but I can’t complain. It is a lot better now than how it was some weeks ago. Long may the good weather continue.

This look was super easy to style. I put the look together from scratch within 5 minutes. I didn’t even have to overthink it, which is the beauty of having a capsule wardrobe. Every piece just falls in the right place.

I am wearing an African print blouse I got some years ago. I love wearing this piece especially in the summer months. It is dead comfy to wear all day if needed, and it is super easy to style too!  Everything else I have on is from my existing wardrobe, except my sunglasses, that is a new addition. I got the sunglasses some weeks ago. It is the latest addition to my sunglasses collection and my current favourite. I love the oversized shape and the colour. It ticks all the right boxes for me.

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

I do 98% of my shopping online. Online shopping is convenient for me and it suits my current lifestyle as I hardly ever go anywhere. I rather pay a delivery charge and try the clothes in the comfort of my home, than head off to a shopping mall. However there are times when I have to go into a store to shop. I prefer buying shoes and jeans in store because I need to make sure they fit. The only time I shop for these online is when I know for a fact that they would suit because I have bought similar pieces/pairs before from the same store. So what happens when I have to go into a mall to shop and use the changing rooms? I just do it and get it over it quickly.

I am sure I am not the only one that hates trying on clothes in the changing room. I have had a few people tell me they rather try on clothes at home and return them if they don’t fit than use the changing rooms. It is strange that many of us feel that way about the changing room. So what is the deal with the changing rooms?

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

These are the reasons why I rather over trying on clothes in changing rooms –

 

I feel exposed

There is little privacy in changing rooms. I find the curtains don’t do a good job and I feel exposed when trying on clothes. I also have this weird feeling that someone could mistakenly/deliberately open the curtains.

 

They are always too small

As a twin mummy, I am usually out and about with the kids. Trying on clothes in small changing rooms with 2 very active toddlers is not ideal. The rooms are usually even too small for just one person, not to mention going in with kids.

 

Waiting for a free room

I am not the most patient person. My entire patience is used up with the twins so I have little or non left for anything else. Hanging around waiting for a free room to try on clothes feels like a waste of valuable time.

Changing rooms are useful

Despite my reservations, I know how useful changing rooms can be. They are great for when you need to ensure that stunning dress fits great or that new brand has the jeans you have your eye on in your size. But I still avoid them when I can. I rather just try my finds at home and buy from trusted brands I know.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Do you avoid the changing rooms like I do?

Shopping for skirts and dresses this summer

Summer fashion features a lot of skirts and dresses because they are dead comfy. With the heat wave, the last thing I want to have on is a pair of jeans. You will easily catch me rocking skirts and dresses because they are easiest pieces to wear and style in summer. It is important to dress for your shape. I always have my body shape in mind when shopping for clothing and accessories. As a petite lady, the last thing I need is for clothing to swallow my little frame up! Which is why I go shopping for skirts and dresses that would work with my body shape.

 

Dressing for your shape image

 

The beauty about skirts and dresses is that they usually tend to suit most body shapes, depending on the style you opt for. If you plan on doing some summer shopping this season, and you have skirts and dresses on your shopping list, here are some tips you may find useful.

 

Get pretty summer dresses

Shop around for summer dresses that can be styled for daytime and nighttime. Floral is timeless, so opt for floral dresses if possible.

 

Go for pieces that show off your best parts

If you have amazing long legs, go for mini dresses that would show they off. Buying dresses with classic lines is a smart way to go about this. If you are after showing off some cleavage and shoulders, go for halter-neck dresses, as they would do the work. It is important to buy clothing that will always show your case your best features.

 

Remember the shirt dress

Having a shirt dress is an essential this summer. I have quite a few in my wardrobe now and I love them. They are dead easy to style and are very comfy to wear this summer. I like the fact that they are multi-tasking pieces. They can be work from season to season with different accessories. They are smart enough to be worn to work and laidback enough for weekends and vacations. I think shirt dresses are a great wardrobe investment. The trick for the shirt dress is to keep it fitted and in subtle colours.

Don’t forget the skirts

I like having skirts in my wardrobe. I wear them a lot in the summer months. The pencil skirt is my favourite. I think it suits my bodyshape so I always go for skirts in that shape. Skirts are very easy to style up and down. A simple top/shirt can be worn with a skirt for a daytime look, and a shimmery sleeveless top for a nighttime look.

 

How is your summer wardrobe looking? Are you a fan of skirts and dresses in the summer months?
