My Month In Outfits: What I Wore in April

April was a brilliant month! To be honest, it's the first time I have felt like myself in a really long time - I can feel my usual cheerfulness and interest in life returning, and after a long battle with depression and anxiety that is kinda a big deal! I got out and about much more, I got dressed up more, and I totally milked my birthday, with waaaaaay more celebrations than are merited for a 33rd! But it was marvelous! And here's what I wore...

Pink Shopper Bag - ASOS (similar here)

Over Easter weekend I made a little trip to Covent Garden with my lovely friend Zil. She patiently took pictures, we wondered about window shopping, did some busker and tourist watching, and gorged ourselves on freak shakes! It was a great day. And I am rather in love with this outfit too! And what do you think of my jacket? I went along to a really awesome event wit Evans, where bloggers and press peeps got to pick a piece of denim to be customised with this season's most delightful trend - embroidery! So I got my name on the front along with a fierce tiger, and on the back I got some roses and my favourite Florence and the Machine lyrics "Lion Hearted Girl". I am in love with it! And shall be wearing it all the time! You've been warned...

Pink Petticoat - Hell Bunny

This romantic Collectif concoction felt perfect for a delicious roast over Easter with my family. I am loving the beautiful print on my fave dress shape ever - the Dolores Doll. And how pretty is this cardi? More bang on trend embroidery!

Tote Bag - A birthday present

The Lady Voluptuous Lyra dress is still one of my fave pieces for everyday wear (I know, I'm fancy) and here I popped it on with a denim jacket and a no nonsense tote I got for my birthday (how well do my friends know me??) for a little trip to the garden centre. My garden is my new obsession!

Black Lace Midi Dress - River Island Plus (previous season)
Suede Ankle Boots - Evans (previous season)

I totally adore this lace dress from River Island Plus, and yet I totally haven't worn it enough! So I gave it a little outing for an early birthday dinner with my family. It was a little chilly so I popped on some black tights and ankle boots, added a denim jacket and a wonderfully sparkly sequined purse from Skinny Dip London.  

Pink Ruffle Hem Dress - ASOS (similar here)
Pink Shopper Bag - ASOS (previous season)
Beads - Oliver Bonas

I am still working on my casual look, but I am loving short oversized t-shirt dresses with trainers. This is what I wore to a wonderful little tea and cake meeting with the team from Curve Fashion Festival. I went last year, and it was a great event. I will definitely be there this year! It's in September in Liverpool - have you got your tickets yet?

Black Block Heels - Evans (similar here)
Soft Pink Shopper - ASOS (similar here)

I am such a sucker for a maxi dress, and I just love this beauty with it's unusual colouring and bold graphic print. I wore this for tea and shopping with my mum, on my actual birthday, and it was cool and comfortable. Read my full review here.

Cream Crocheted Top - Next (previous season)

One Sunday in early April we got an unexpected early blast of summer in London. I dug out my flip flops (come summer I live in my black Havaianas, like a uniform!) and these jersey trousers from Evans (cool and comfortable) and this cute crochet top, and spent the afternoon lying on the grass in Battersea Park (which is pretty much a stone's throw from my house) people watching.

Dr. Martens Black Cherry 8 Hole Boots - ASOS (similar here)
White Cropped Cardigan - Primark (previous season)
Pale Pink Silk Pashmina - Phase Eight

I love a lace dress for summer. I also love to grunge it up a little bit, so adding my Dr Martens while it's still a little cooler is perfect. This dress is my first piece from Quiz Clothing's new plus size range. Read my full review here.

Black Cropped Cardigan - Primark
Black Waist Belt - Simply Be (previous season)

I spent a wonderful evening at God's Own Junkyard in Walthamstow. It's an exhibition space absolutely filled to bursting with the most incredible neon signs. It made my shiny, sparkly, vegas loving heart too happy, and if you ever have a chance to visit you totally should. It's incredible!

So, that's what I wore in April! What was your favourite? What have you been wearing lately? Let me know...


  1. You have such an enviable dress wardrobe! And that rose arch pictures is the most delightful thing ever!
