back at it

So, my first post-hospital outfit post. Dressing is tricky right now, I’m having to re-learn what fits and suits my new shape. I’m trying to look at is as a good thing, another challenge and the perfect excuse to go shopping.

The dress is from New Look, I bought it on Saturday for the grand sum of Β£6. The clogs are also new, purhcased on a ward trip, also Β£6 but from Primark this time.




Did everyone have a good weekend? What did you get up to? Mine involved a lot of un-packing and a lot of lazing on the sofa watching TV with my parents.
I don’t think it has sunk in that I am home just yet…but each day as it comes, right?

Who has exciting plans for this week? Inspire me! Mine so far consists of catching up with LFW and blogs.

  2. Such great deals! And they suit you so well. You look great!
    It makes perfect sense that it still has to sink in and that you have to adjust. But before you know it you’ll feel right at home again.

    I’m waiting on a few things I ordered so I can make a completely new line for etsy. And also a few books and a game for my nintendo DS. So I’ll definitely be lazing on the sofa as well.

  3. omg! love love love your outfit! you look amazing!

  4. Β£6? That dress was a complete bargain. I love the pink tights also, such a lovely outfit x

  8. Welcome back πŸ™‚ Love the clogs and the dress – very pretty x

  9. It’s so nice to see you blogging again! We’ve really missed you. I understand how hard it must be dressing for a new shape – I recently put on quite a bit of weight and it’s tough for me to conceal my ‘problem areas’! But like you said, it’s a challenge πŸ™‚

  11. Such a lovely dress, darling Laura!

  15. You are looking fantastic..great outfit xx

  16. Hello hello ^^ So great to see your outfit posts again πŸ˜€

  22. You look really good !! This outfit is lovely too and the clogs really look good with the outfit!

  23. Welcome home sweetness! You look flippin’ amazing πŸ˜€

  24. You look SO beautiful!!!!!! Really, stunning. Glad to see you home and hope you’re feeling better. I’ve been following your blog for ages but don’t think I’ve commented before. But since you went away I started up blogging. What are your plans now? Rest? Studying again?

  25. Love so much tights and dress… Gorgeus *_* You look perfect! An hug

  26. You look beautiful :] x

  27. That’s a pretty and feminine dress with its lace yoke, puff sleeves and ruffle near the hem. i love the colour of those tights. Confidence in your own worth and growing older will make changes in your shape inevitable and provide even more good excuses to go shopping. It’s nice to see that you’re back home, and i pray you will continue to feel better.

  28. You look 100000x more beautiful. Really truly stunning. Just wanted to say that. And I can relate to finding it hard to dress a ‘new body’ – I’m having the same struggle but trying to view it as a challenge and a chance to reinvent myself πŸ™‚ Hang in there, you are doing amazingly.

  29. Ahh, I can’t tell you how happy I am to see this! For a grand total of 12 pounds, this is such a gorgeous look! I want those clogs:)


  30. I like your dress. I am glad you are back blogging again.

  31. Welcome home, doll! πŸ™‚
    Yay for clogs!! And bright tights. Is it chilly already?

    Hmm, this week, just some dinner and drinks with friends, but that’s really what gets me through work. Hope that’s inspirational enough for you.

    You look great, btw!
