Fatshion Faceoff is a weekly challenge that I do with 5 other fatshion bloggers from around the world, we choose a similar item of clothing and we all style it in our own way. This week’s challenge was chosen by the lovely Molly, and she chose coloured trousers. This was definitely a challenge for me, since I don’t like wearing trousers or jeans at all. This is actually the only pair I own (unless you count one pair of very jeans-like jeggings)!!!
I wore this outfit to go shopping on Sunday, and my flatmate snapped these pics after I came back. The middle one is blurry, but I had to add it cos she made me laugh and I think the pic is kinda cute cos of that :).
These look lovely, and they are actually by far the best trousers for my body that I have tried on in years.. But still I felt uncomfortable the whole time. I don’t even know what my problem is, since I don’t mind showing my VBO proudly with skirts and dresses.. I might just be too used to leggings and how super comfy they are :D. So in the end this outfit is quite boring, since I didn’t feel comfy with the trousers, I had to find that with tops. Casual outfit, which became cuter when I added the lippy though ;). But yeah, enough of me and my complaining.. Now go on and check out what the other FF girls did, I’m sure they are rocking their trousers!!!

I went to the hospital for some tests today (and I hope they’ll find something!), and since it was nice and sunny outside, I wanted to wear my new maxi. YES, it is another Old Navy purchase from NYC, but I loooooooove it. Long maxis are my weakness, since in the past I couldn’t find any (they were always my ankle length, not floor), now I feel that I have to buy them all!
Since it’s earthy green, I wanted to add other earthy tones and teamed it up with brown and grey. The cardi might look too chunky for a sunny spring day, but it wasn’t too much cos my neck and chest area was exposed anyway. First I thought I’d wear it without the belt, but after taking a few pics I decided that it looks better with the belt. Of course I had to add the Minnetonka’s (I’m seriously in love with them) and a brown scarf for my hair. Lastly I added my trusted old sunnies from years ago, I still love them :)
Scarf (in my hair): from my mum’s wedding dress | Cardigan: XL, H&M (similar) | Dress: XXL, Old Navy | Tank top: XL, Gina Tricot (similar) | Belt: XL, Dorothy Perkins | Shoes: US8, Minnetonka | Sunnies: old prescription ones from Finland (similar)
Thanks to everyone who has already entered my giveaway, but if you haven’t, you still have a week before I close the entries :).

Today has been quite hellish day. I have felt so moody, I for example cried at work today. I felt really horrible, but big part of me wanted to stay at work, cos I was supposed to work on an interesting new project. So, this ‘go/stay/go/stay’ thing was going on in my head and I just started crying. EMBARRASSING. I’m so happy that I had told my boss a couple of weeks ago that my doc took me off my thyroid meds (I’ve got an overactive thyroid), and that these mood swings might happen. Well yeah, I will not go to the office tomorrow, will go to the hospital for some tests. I hope they find some reason for this, all this weirdness can’t be only in my head!
Even though you will see the tiredness and the fake smile in my pics, I still wanted to share today’s outfit. This dress was one of the few things that I actually paid full price for on my NYC trip, and it’s again from Old Navy. I like it, but I’m not sure if I love it. What do you think? What I do love though is my shoes! They’re Office shoes that I found for £4 (!!!!) from a charity shop, they had only been worn once or twice. I think they’re so cute, definitely one of my best thrifting finds. (And sorry about the laundry, I wish I had a much bigger room/flat/house.)
Dress: XXL, Old Navy | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Shoes: 42 (extra insole needed, haha), Office – thrifted | Glasses: LensWay

It’s been a beautiful day in London today, very sunny and spring like. I’ve been hiding inside though, with my curtains closed. Reason for this is that I have a hangover from hell. I did have fun last night though, and had some good convos with colleagues. My BFF from Finland is coming to London next Friday, and I can’t even think of the pubbing we have to do then.. Girly talks with drinks are definitely needed though. Oh my poor head.
Anyway, I wanted to share a few outfits from this week with you. More finds from Old Navy clearance section (I would be so poor if ON had a store in London..) and cute brown shoes. I do love my new Minnetonka‘s (seen in the second outfit). So cute and supersuper comfy!
Dress: XL, Old Navy | Belt: thrifted (similar) | Bag: H&M (similar) | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Booties: 6, Evans (similar) | Glasses: LensWay
Denim jacket: 22, Dorothy Perkins | Dress: L, Old Navy (similar) | Belt: scarf from my mom’s wedding dress | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Shoes: 8, Minnetonka | Glasses: LensWay
I have also changed the layout pic at the top of my blog. I love the pics of me from Plus London Two, but I wanted to use one of the pics from Coney Island. Love <3.
I need to do some serious blog reading tomorrow, I have missed many of my fave bloggers posts because of my holiday, and because this week has been so busy. Can’t wait to read what everyone’s been up to!
Have you had a good weekend so far? Excited that the spring is here?
