Shopping with Boohoo and #Passion4Fashion Linkup!


Do you ever stop shopping somewhere, whether that be online or instore, somewhere because you thought that it may have been too old or too young for you? I have. And its a rookie mistake. never rule anywhere out is my new rule, because frankly there are gems to be found everywhere, and i was blatently just cutting my own nose off ruling out places because my head did too much of that over thinking.
So what's behind this realisation? Well Boohoo is. Boohoo is an online store i shopped at many moons ago, probably when they first launched in-fact. Then as i got older i started to vere away from it. Why? who knows.. we all know i'm not quite all there, right? Because frankly they have some lots of amazing clothes and even better, it normally comes with a small price tag. Its just a case of finding the gems and what works for you, as it is in any shop.
So when they asked if i would like to order something from their website i got to looking. And now kidding, i had a basket full of great wearable pieces that i would love to have in my wardrobe.
Their maxi dresses are so comfy and reasonable (more on that next week and proof to back up my words) and nicer than some i bought for a damn site more in various stores last summer.
They also launched the fabulous #weareus empowering women to be bold, stylish, musical, whatever.. being proud of who you are! S'kind of nice no?
But today i bring you this awesome khaki (it just had to be khaki didn't it?! what can i say i'm a sucker for khaki, one may need a khaki-intervention soon though, can you help?) sleeveless jacket.
I absolutely fell head over heels for it. It's been fairly mild out lately so this worked perfectly for adding an extra barrier against the breeze and adding a little interest at the same time.







Have you ever written off a shop just to be proven wrong?

  6. Love this whole look! I've been wanting a lighter weight trench for spring layering. I did a collaboration with Boohoo but it was specific, so I didn't get to just shop for any piece that caught my eye. I love what you selected.

  12. Nasty Gal (young) and Talbots (old) are two stores I'm always pleasantly surprised by. it takes an open mind to see a piece of clothing for what it could be in the context of your own wardrobe. You are fabulous and you've made another great look. LOVE YOU!
