OOTD: Lacie

June 10, 2012

OOTD / 10 June 2012 OOTD / 10 June 2012 OOTD / 10 June 2012 OOTD / 10 June 2012 OOTD / 10 June 2012
Dress (worn as top): Dunnes *** Skirt/Belt: New Look *** Kimono Cardigan: New Look *** Bracelets: Primark

Before I started losing weight I took pictures of a couple of OOTD's that I never posted, because I wanted to have something to post during the time when I am losing weight and my clothes aren't fitting how they should! So this entry (and the next couple of OOTD's) will actually be outfits I planned in advance but am wearing on the day I post them. I hope that doesn't sound too confusing, because I am rather awful at trying to explain things!

It feels kind of crazy to be wearing chunky knit cardigans in mid June, but the weather here is so unpredictable most of the time and layering is definitely the way to go! The "top" in this outfit is actually a bodycon lace dress but I think it works great under skirts too. The material isn't too thick so it doesn't really feel like i'm wearing a dress underneath! Unfortunately the belt that came with the skirt was far too small for me, as you can see in the pictures! I couldn't find my favorite brown belt at the time so just used this one for the pictures (thankfully I have since found it and am wearing it with the outfit today!) I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but whenever I buy a skirt that comes with a belt, the belt never fits! The skirt will fit perfect but the belt needs some extra inches.

A little bit of shameless self promotion but I have quite a few listings ending on eBay in a couple of hours, mostly new or gently used items. There's a lot of things that I have worn on my blog before so if anyone is interested you can view my listings by clicking here. Quite a few end in about four hours but some end tomorrow too!

  1. You look fab, Dee! Your legs look so toned in first two photos, I thought these were taken when you started your weight loss but obviously not.
    Adorable outfit, too!

  2. You look gorgeous! I love the cardigan and the skirt, especially the colour, but most of all I love the bracelet. It's amazing! xo

  3. That always happens to me - I think they make clothes on various sizes then stick one sized belts on everything because belts are always either too big or too small - they never actually fit!

    Hope your mom is doing fine! I'll pray for her! <3

  9. Lovely outfit, I agree about belts, they are always such a random size and never coincide with the clothing they come with! :)
