Style | Another ASOS Floral Dress



Can you tell I have a thing for florals currently? I'm usually a monochrome kind of girl but this summer has me wearing all sorts of prints and patterns. This is yet another dress from ASOS which I bought a couple of months ago. It's so easy to dress up and down though I've mostly been wearing it casually with a denim jacket.

This dress has seen a lot of wear as my wardrobe is still fairly small after my big purge at the beginning of year. I've not been buying that many clothes (like I used to) but to make my (working) life easier I've been pretty much getting most of my new fashion buys from ASOS, so expect a lot more ASOS-related posts in future! When I'm not posting here you can see a lot of what I'm wearing/buying/using .

Style | ASOS Floral Print Dress


I've been lazier than ever with styling this summer. I like to keep it simple generally but some days have been so humid here I don't feel like wearing much more than a loose dress and trainers. I bought this floral number from ASOS a little while ago. I don't usually like to wear much white (as I can be pretty clumsy with food) but I love the print and I do have a bit of thing for long dresses which cover the scars on my leg nicely.


I used my new compact camera (Canon EOS M3) for these shots and I'm still not crazy about the quality and the lighting is so off but I may just have to get over it to take more outfit pictures on the go.

Style | Forever 21 Khaki Jacket


I show very little of my style on my blog but I'm hoping that's about to change. A couple of things have held me back in creating more style posts up until now - very few opportunities to actually shoot outdoors, a lack of space and lighting indoors to take full length shots and I started to scrutinise whether my personal style was actually 'fashionable'. I love blogging but the standard is so high in the blogging community that sometimes I forget that I really shouldn't put so much pressure on something I started for fun.



I've been dressing more casual lately in general and this Forever 21 jacket has been my go-to now it's warmer. I've mostly been wearing it with dainty camis like the one here and converse. I don't like trainers usually but I love a pair of converse sneakers and I've been collecting a few pairs in white as they go with almost everything. I've also finally got over not getting my legs out for two reasons - it has been gorgeously sunny in the UK and I've become almost entirely unbothered about the scarring on my legs which I've kept hidden for the past few years.

I have stretch marks (thanks puberty), dark knees and brown pitted scarring on my lower left leg but I've stopped caring. I'll admit my legs are starting to look more even now and my u-turn on hating my legs is partly due to the fact that I'm wearing tights here. I was sent some (£9)* way back in March but haven't worn them until the last couple of weeks. I'm wearing Ownbrown's lightest shade Amani which are darker than my skintone but as they're sheer you can barely even tell I'm wearing tights in person.

Primark has some tights which work great for medium or tanned skin but before I stumbled upon these for years I used to joke that creating a line of nude tights for darker skin was my billion dollar idea. I love that women like Ownbrown founder Nadine Njoko Peisker are finally taking it upon themselves to create products to solve the lack of diversity on the market currently. These Ownbrown tights are so comfortable, not overly shiny and are the right amount of sheer at 20 denier. I was sent a size large (which is a size bigger than I need according to the size guidelines) but they fit perfectly. You only get one pair in a pack which is a shame as I have a tendency to catch my nails on my tights. These have so far surprisingly survived 2 wears and (hand) washing so I'll be grabbing another pair as a back up.

Style | ASOS Midi Column Dress in Stripe


I've always found navigating the British weather around fashion posts pretty tricky. Whilst I'm excited for Spring, yesterday proved that the British weather remains extremely changeable. Gloriously sunny one minute. Dull drizzly weather the next. This means there's no detail shots here, just a couple of outfit snaps before the rain poured. I'm still hopeful there'll be a few more sunny days to come though!


Despite the rain it's great to see the back of Winter, especially now there's a chance I can actually go out bare-legged. I've always found shorter dresses unflattering on me so I tend to prefer midi dresses now over any other length. I got this midi column dress from ASOS to round off my wardrobe for the Spring/Summer months and it's slotted in perfectly. I bought the tall version but it's also available in petite and regular which is definitely something I love about ASOS' own brand of clothing. This midi can be easily dressed up or down too. Here I wore this striped dress with a pair of heeled sandals (also from ASOS last year) but often I'll keep my look more relaxed and mix this dress with my other  from 2015.
