For Valentine’s this year, my boyfriend and I went to Birmingham for the weekend to go and watch PARTYNEXTDOOR perform at the O2 Academy (highly recommend).
At the ripe age of 22 (almost 23), I still haven’t found ‘my style‘. Like most girls out there, I love feeling all pretty in pink and heels, but don’t get me wrong, casual and comfortable is what I’m really about! When Tobi emailed me asking to collaborate, I couldn’t resist – it was my chance to really put myself out there and step out my comfort zone.
Fashion photos aren’t really my forte, nor am I photogenic! I’m still finding my own way of taking outfit shots for now (definitely one of my goals for 2019)!
Tobi is an online-only fashion boutique based in Los Angeles but they ship to over 150 countries worldwide! From dainty, elegant pieces to cute and casual, Tobi has an amazing range of clothes for a good price.
This Valentine’s I wore the Half Thought Sweater Dress* in Rose, paired with my favourite over the knee boots from New Look. The dress is exactly as I expected which is one of the biggest issues people face when ordering online.
As a shortie at only 5ft 3, finding dresses (in particular, jumper dresses) that don’t come below the knee is a pretty tough job! However, I found that this sweater dress came just above my knees – it didn’t meet my boots!
I tied a belt around my waist to bring the dress in a bit and rolled up the sleeves to make it look more fitted (and to show off my watch, of course) – just a personal preference! It also dons cold shoulders and a high neck collar which is perfect for the British weather!
What did you do for Valentine’s Day?! Tell me all about it!
