Glamming Up!

Its not very often that I get the chance to glam up, but whilst we were away on holiday in Cornwall we attended Phil's cousin's wedding, so I decided to take up the opportunity to put a new outfit together.

I wanted an outfit that I would be able to wear for other occasions, so it needed to be able to be dressed up or down depending on the event. I have always loved Boden clothing and find the quality is amazing; their style of clothing tends to suit me and my frame. Fortunately there was a sale on so I picked out a grey slate coloured tea length style dress that had quite a full skirt, it was a dress I wouldn't normally wear as I didn't think it would suit my figure, but when it arrived I fell in love with it. The quality and weight of the fabric made the dress fit my petite figure really well.

To complement my dress, I had for some time been eyeing up some shoes from Livie and Luca, I really struggle with finding shoes that fit me as my feet are so narrow, so after several conversations with the lovely Natalie, I decided to place an order. I was so excited waiting for the shoes to arrive and tried them on in the car before I got home from the post office; I couldn't believe it... I had found a pair of shoes that were practical, stylish and actually fitted me! I have been so impressed with them that I actually ordered another pair in mustard.

To complete my outfit the lovely people at The Gorgeous Scarf Company offered me the opportunity to review one of their scarfs; I jumped at the chance, their scarfs are perfect for the everyday budget at just £15 with free UK delivery. I ordered a scarf called 'The Jackie Scarf' and I love it! It really complemented my outfit and added a touch of colour, I will certainly be wearing this scarf again in the future. I would really recommend you check out their website as they make great gifts or even treats to yourself.

I have to say when I put my outfit on I felt like a million dollars, and was so comfortable. I had many compliments from people about how lovely I look, Hubbie even managed to snap a few photos of me that I actually really like!

Disclaimer: I was kindly given the Scarf from The Gorgeous Scarf Company for free to review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. I was not asked to mention Boden or Livie and Luca, but have done so because I have been so impressed with the amazing quality of the items.
