Keeping it casual.

A few years back my wardrobe consisted of black leggings and black tops. I used to wear the same things over and over and always had the mindset that I wouldn't buy clothes until I lost enough weight to look nice in them. Since starting this blog my whole outlook on my life and my body image has changed. I have ditched that ridiculous idea and now allow myself the privilege of feeling good at any size. I have learnt to dress for any occasion including just for knocking about on the weekend . My advise is to just invest a few basics such as a black tube skirt and a decent leather jacket. You can mix up your look with different tees, sweaters, jumpers. One thing I will say is buy a good tube skirt and size down as they can stretch out which as you can see in my photos below has already started to happen! So annoying. Here is my simple casual weekend look. 



  1. Love the boots! Someday you will need to do a hair post - how on earth do you keep it looking so healthy and shiny at that length?!

  2. Love this look! And I agree - I used to wear a lot of flowy black tops to hide, but since I've started blogging, I've ditched that ho-hum approach. Weekends are often an excuse to get creative now :)

  3. Love this look! You are so inspirational, I'm quite a bit bigger than you, and trying to drop down a few dress sizes at the moment. The realisation that I will never be slim has hit but that that doesn't mean I can't be fashionable! The midi tube skirt has been my saviour recently, I was constantly wearing black leggings but now I can switch it up! xx

  4. I remember the black only phase, a muted scarf and hoop earrings to brighten an outfit up! I love you Cal, you've inspired me to step way out of my comfort zone and start wearing things I was absolutely terrified to even try before! And those boots are banging, baby girl!
