Pleats, bows and pockets

September 19, 2011






Scarlet for Splash blouse, New Look skirt and shoes, Lifestyle necklace.

Erm, yeah. I can’t be bothered to iron most of the time. Anyway, I love the fact that it has pockets and a bow, so cute! I wish the length was longer though, this is definitely a skirt to avoid on a windy day. The top is what the boy called a grandmother blouse, I prefer the word classic, and I can’t wait to pair it with something deliciously vintage like flares or a pencil skirt.

I don’t know why, but I’m always surprised when skinny girls react to something on this blog. It makes think that my fat girl problems are actually every girl problems, especially with our moms. I’m really blown away by all the responses I got from my last post, while it’s nice to know I’m not alone, the fact that so any of us feel that way is kind of sad. Maybe we will know better than to repeat these mistakes with our kids. The world will have to come up with some new bullshit to bring future women down.

Keep staying strong and don’t let trivial stuff ruin your entire day 🙂 Hugs,

    Love it! I also hate ironing, and I usually try to tell myself that "maybe people will think it's just the kind of fabric that's supposed to be wrinkly" although inevitably it's never THAT wrinkly. Oh well. My thought is that it will just get wrinkled again anyways when you sit down. Haha.

  • Love the neutral colour palette!
    I think I will just invest in a steamer.

  • That skirt is so cute! You look great. I don't much like ironing either, haha.

  • LOVED the title of this post and this skirt is AMAZING!!!


    I am sooooooooooo glad to see you back. I adore your skirt. Who needs the iron??? LOL.
    You are so beautiful.

  • This outfit is *so* great, and you look *so* good in it, that I kinda hate you a little bit. 😉 And on top of that you're a chubby girl rocking a mini skirt! I take it back, I don't hate you, but I might be developing a girl crush on you.
