We sailed from where we once begun while we wait

Blouse: Nelly. Skirt: Topshop. Boots: Primark.

You know those really uncomfortable outfits that we all have, and every time we wear it after forgetting it, we regret it. Well this is one of them. The blouse is a little on the big side around the collar (is it really possible to have a small neck?!) and the skirt has a tight underskirt which constantly wants to ride up all the time. And I don't know how it manages it, when my thighs are already filling up the skirt.. I guess they just want in on the closeness action.
Talking of thighs, I've decided to bite the bullet, and diet. I'm not fat, but the fact I have to really hoist myself into some clothes lately, have made me realise that I need to sort it out. So here I am going cold turkey from chocolate, cakes and sweets. I couldn't part with my beloved carbs just yet. And with this, Littlebum has decided to give up smoking, and Schmidtbum is giving up sunflower seeds. He didn't really get a say in that, but the way I see it, at least they still get a few a day as they're slowly cutting it out.
So if you're thinking of coming over for tea and cake soon.. Our household probably won't be the best place...

  2. I'm sure you don't need to cut out your sweet treats entirely! I've lost a good couple of stone gradually over the last couple of years, and I didn't cut out all the crap completely - just moderated it, and let myself have occasional treats :) You look great anyway, you don't need to diet! xx

  5. Lovely outfit! You look so adorable :) Good on you for deciding to switch up your eating habits, just remember to go steady. Just deciding to give up things you eat regularly sets you up for major cravings and an eventual binge down the line. Take it from an old hand at this haha :) xxx

  6. I know exactly what you mean about those uncomfy outfits :( Atleast Schmidtbum has finally agreed to give up those sunflower seeds, but don't think it's really right for you to give up cake, considering your blog title an' all ox

  9. I love this outfit but the skirt's rather cheeky riding up!
    And like everyone else I bloody adore your figure and would slap your wrist for wanting to diet, but I'm glad that it's encouraging Littlebum to give up smoking :) And if you eat little but often; lots of protein, veg and water, you don't have to change your diet too much, just everything in moderation. So you can still have a sly bit of cake when nobody's around ;)

  10. CAKES! No you cannot stop eating CAKES especially CHEESECAKE! Well that is my downfall anyway..

    Once, I bought a skirt off ASOS and I couldn't wear it for the longest time because it was too loose. A year later, I found the skirt in my closet and thought.. hmm, I've gained a bit of weight I should fit into it now. But nope. Too tight. Button would not close.

  13. I totally know those uncomfortable outfits. Their cute looks can be so oh-so deceiving! And giving up on sweets is definitely hard, but once you get into the routine you'll (almost) never look back! Good luck :)

  17. Poor little Schmidt, pretty sure he'll soon be facing sunflower seed withdrawal.
    But apart from that, good luck! It gets easy after the first few days; I lost a ton of weight a few years back and now it's just second nature to ditch the cake.
    You're gorgeous as you are though; just remember that!

  20. Regardless if it was uncomfortable, you look amazing!
    Your body is wonderful, don't feel like you HAVE to diet. Think of it more as a lifestyle change.

  21. Very cute outfit, you do a good impression of it being very comfortable :) Love the style of the skirt!

  22. This outfit looks so lovely on you, isn't it annoying how the prettiest outfits are always the most uncomfortable! I love the collar and cuffs on the blouse.
    Good luck with your healthy eating, I definitely need to join you on that one (she says while munching a bag of crisps...)! x

  23. What a lovely outfit, shame about the collar though, it still looks lovely on you! Good luck with the healthy eating, there is no way I could give up chocolate haha

  26. I have so many uncomfy outfits in my wardrobe. Usually they have huge-ass labels sticking in my back. WHY DOES A WASHING LABEL NEED TO BE SO BIG?!!!
    Best of luck with giving up cake and other treats, I could never ever do that. I have such a sweet tooth! xx

  27. It's a shame this is such an uncomfy outfit because you look lovely! I know what you mean though, you go back to the wardrobe hoping that your dress / skirt / blouse will have magically changed and will be comfy this time, but they never are :( xo
