Today’s OOTD, and my first ever giveaway!

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today has been quite hellish day. I have felt so moody, I for example cried at work today. I felt really horrible, but big part of me wanted to stay at work, cos I was supposed to work on an interesting new project. So, this ‘go/stay/go/stay’ thing was going on in my head and I just started crying. EMBARRASSING. I’m so happy that I had told my boss a couple of weeks ago that my doc took me off my thyroid meds (I’ve got an overactive thyroid), and that these mood swings might happen. Well yeah, I will not go to the office tomorrow, will go to the hospital for some tests. I hope they find some reason for this, all this weirdness can’t be only in my head!

Even though you will see the tiredness and the fake smile in my pics, I still wanted to share today’s outfit. This dress was one of the few things that I actually paid full price for on my NYC trip, and it’s again from Old Navy. I like it, but I’m not sure if I love it. What do you think? What I do love though is my shoes! They’re Office shoes that I found for £4 (!!!!) from a charity shop, they had only been worn once or twice. I think they’re so cute, definitely one of my best thrifting finds. (And sorry about the laundry, I wish I had a much bigger room/flat/house.)

Dress: XXL, Old Navy | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Shoes: 42 (extra insole needed, haha), Office – thrifted | Glasses: LensWay

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve done some researching and surfing during the past few days, and I wanted to do a post about spring/summer trends and what kind of outfits I’d like to buy. Turns out there are MANY.. and instead of one post I will do a series, and I want to include as many plus-size (or up to size 20/22) retailers as possible. The first one is about pastels, since there is pretty pastel hues everywhere in new collections. I have combined different retailers items to give you 8 looks that I love, hope you’ll love them too!
