For the first time this Sunday, I wore a dress and actually remembered I had legs! *shock horror* Since pregnancy, all i’ve been in is leggings or stretchy jeans, okay ‘jeggings’, the sun was shining, after watching bbc news since 6am (during Leonardo’s first feed of the day) I must have heard the weather forecast about four times saying how ‘mild’ it was that day, so I thought hey, let’s dig out that dress and give these pins some day light.
Last week I had also tried out a new tanning lotion, after making friends with the really lovely assistant in Superdrug and after hearing her thoughts on the best tried and tested tanning lotion, I went with ‘Laurens Way’ tan, you may not have heard of it, it’s by one of these actresses from ‘Towie’ and usually I would go for St Tropez or a Fake Bake, however, about 2 years ago I had a really amazing spray tan done by a professional in one of those spray booths and I was so, so pleased with it, I asked her which ‘brand’ it was and when she told me, I was a bit shocked and never really got round to buying it. So when I saw it was on offer in Superdrug and after hearing good reviews from the girls in Superdrug, I brought it. I hadn’t worn fake tan for the whole of my pregnancy, I was always a bit unsure as to whether it was safe to, there are most probably products out there that are completely fine to use, I just never got round to it, and with my bump and skin forever stretching and struggling to bend down, I just couldn’t be bothered in the end, so it was quite refreshing to apply it again and see some good results.
I went for the ‘darker than dark’ and you can purchase it here
I’ve noticed a recent trend for SS17 being the ‘Slogan Tee’ trend, and I absolutely love it. I think this is a trend that can be worn by all ages, it doesn’t just have to be a band or brand and it can be a design that you like, personally for me, I think what makes this look is the ‘boxyness’ of the t-shirt style, it’s a classic! The t-shirt looks great with jeans but for a look that’s a bit more fun and possibly out of your comfort zone (it is mine atm) try wearing it with a mini skirt and ankle boots.
I currently love this mini leather effect skirt from Zara – Buy it here
These flats from Ego Official are a must – Buy it here
For that ‘Boxy ‘Slogan’ Tee’ – Buy it here
