Monki’in around, what I wore for Mother’s Day

It’s been a while since I’ve undertaken a fashion post, but HERE WE GO. As many of you will have celebrated Mother’s Day a few weeks ago I thought I’d share my Outfit of the Day. Any excuse to dress up really. Who needs an excuse when you have this Monki dress?

Dress: Monki – AsosĀ IN THE SALE NOW- GO GO GO!
Boots: Yours Clothing
Earrings: ASOS

I love the fabric print of this dress. The tropical vibes with just the right splash of colour mean it’s the perfect dress for year long wear. It’s long enough to wear with flip flops or ankle boots like I am here. The wrap over front of a particular favourite part of the dress for me as it has some modesty saving stitching along the wrap. I’m ALWAYS flashing people with this type of dress, this stops me from blinding others. Who knew it was a safety feature?

Only one point to state about the sizing of Monki, it’s relatively over sized. Most bloggers reviews state the same. Whilst this is great for us plus sized gals, it’s just something to be aware of when buying their clothing. This is a size 16 and I’d say is a little big on my around the tie waist. Luckily I wanted an over sized, comfort look!

The earrings are extremely on trend with the tassel phase that has over taken EVERY SINGLE shop on the high street.

These boots have become old faithfuls for me. Completely stylish with their velvet material. Also extreeeeemely comfortable with the small heel and wide toe fit. For us bigger feet gals it’s a bit of a god send.

I spent my Mother’s Day snuggling with Jasper, watching films, eating Nandos and shopping. Also wandering around trying to achieve an OOTD snap, ya know how it is. How did you spend yours?

    LOVE this dress, the print is beaut. Definitely agree about the sizing with Monki, but that’s definitely better than the other way round! xx

    This dress looks phenomenal on you! Monki is probably my favourite recent discovery. Lots of fab prints, and I am extremely pro the generous sizing!
