Outfit August - 2nd August - Gingham mini smock dress

OUTFIT-AUGUST-2017-GINGHAM-MINI-SMOCK-DRESS // WWW.XLOVELEAHX.CO.UK
Hello lovelies,

This is a bit of a cheat for Outfit August - I'd already taken these photos but I haven't published them yet and I don't want to leave them any longer. This dress is out of stock but gingham is really hot right now so you'll easily be able to find something similar.

The others taking part in the challenge are:

Mookie

It's so liberating to get my legs out, because I don't do it that often. When James and I were taking these photos in the communal garden where we live some of our neighbours came out, saw us doing outfit shots and shouted across "Cheese!" It made me giggle a lot. We have lovely neighbours.

I'm wearing the leggings in a size 26, a size down from my usual. They have quite a lot of stretch and they're a good fit on me. I'm glad I sized down. I've put my finger through them already and made a small tear but it just makes them look more alt and edgy. So get your legs out, or your arms, or whatever parts you're nervous about. They're only body parts and there's nothing shameful about body parts. We come in all different shapes, sizes and colours and there's no wrong way to have a body, so wear what makes you happy. Miserable buggers who might pass us in the street and say something critical are with us 5 seconds of our day, but you're YOU all day, so who should you please with your outfit choices? YOURSELVES, of course. Anyone who makes a horrible comment is obviously a sad little person and who cares what sad little people think? Wear the thing!

  1. I love those tights! I much prefer to wear those (I have some too) than the regular tights. They come in some funky patterns, but I guess they don’t add a huge amount of warmth….. not a prob. around here anyway!

    1. Haha, yeah you don't need the warmth as much as us freezing Poms, lololol. I could always wear these over nude plain tights when it's colder.

  4. I absolutely love this outfit; you look fabulous! I've never worn fishnet tights before because of my crappy self confidence, but I really want to :) I adore this gingham Yours Clothing dress; I so wish it was still available! x

    1. Thanks Sarah. You should TOTALLY wear fishnet leggings - balls to what anyone else thinks. As long as you're happy with your outfit that's all that matters. x
