Plus Sized Polka Dots With Simply Be*


With party season just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to be scouting out your perfect dress or outfit, whether you’re attending the annual family get together, a wild night out with work, or just want to get into the festive spirit with a new frock. That’s why I was over the moon when Simply Be got in touch wanting me to review some pieces from their new party range.


An Autumn Walk


What better way to celebrate the arrival of autumn than with a new coat? Thanks to my mum, I can keep warm this season in this gorgeous tan coat. It makes a change from my usual black or fur coats and I’m loving that the fur collar is easily detachable. The most surprising thing? It’s from Sainsbury’s! Or, I should say, TU clothing.

Admittedly, I’ve been feeling a little down lately after putting on post-grad weight and trying to adjust to adult life whilst freelancing, it’s been hard! But a few days at home with my parents, a bit of retail therapy and a refreshing autumnal walk is just what I needed.

Like I said, I love this coat; the colour, the fur collar and the button detailing. The only thing I would complain about is its lack of pockets – why do fashion designers think it’s okay to sew up women’s pockets on everything? I’m sure this is a feminist issue! 


Congrats You’ve Made It To Adulthood.


If you didn’t know already, exactly a month ago I turned 21; the big two-one, the key to the door. I’m not quite sure what door that is all I know is that I currently have 2 front doors, neither of which properly work – but hey, they’re my doors and I work to pay rent for them.

Anyway, I thought I’d do a little bit of a birthday haul because I really love photographing pretty things and all the things I received were pretty. I don’t want to brag in anyway, just show you what lovely things my family and friends gifted me in exchange for me being alive for 21 years. I did receive a few more lovely bits than what is in the photos, but didn’t have a chance to capture them.
