#BEDJ - OOTD

Woohoo! Day two of Blog Every Day In June and this one's an Outfit Of The Day post. (I need to do more of these.)

Today, the weather is dreadful and I'm in "Indoor Mum" mode which means no makeup and no effort! So I want to share an outfit from a few days ago.


This lovely number is brought to you by Joe Browns at Simply Be. I picked it up during the manic and amazing blogger takeover at Simply Be Oxford Street following Curvy Convention last month. 


I ummed and ahhed for what seemed like an age because I was torn between this and another dress but this one got the final vote!


Dress // Simply Be
Shoes // Primark
Necklace // Ladybird Likes

I love the way the dress hangs. It's medium weight so it skims over bumps while keeping its shape, and the hint of turquoise amongst the purple flowers brings it together beautifully (and goes well with my hair).


I also tried a different makeup look with this. I'm a big fan of neutrals with a small hint of colour but I thickened the teal eyeliner and used MUAs Matte Lipstick in Wild Berry on my lips. What do you think?

  1. You look fantastic! That dress really suits you and the make-up totally brings out the colours in your eyes and your skin tones.

    Loving your necklace too!
