Green Belle

I'm never one to turn down a dress, particularly from a brand I like, so when Pink Clove got in touch to see if I'd like a dress, I couldn't resist this little green number. I'm not usually one for green, but because of that I thought I'd give it a try in this lovely swing dress design. I guess you could call this a summer dress, but Autumn has been so warm for the most part so there was no need to throw on a pair of ankle boots, but instead I went for my favourite flats from Simply Be.
Dress: Gifted (via Pink Clove)
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: Simply Be
From previous experience with Pink Clove, I knew they ran big so I opted to size down. I'm glad I did because it's the perfect fit for my small waist. I love that this dress is so fitted on the top half of the body and then scoops out for the timeless swing-style skirt. The gathering on the bust is such a lovely touch and that's one of the things Pink Clove do so well, they really take pride in their attention to detail. I would wear this style of dress anytime of the year and it can easily be dressed up or down with just a little adjustment in footwear and accessories.

The straps are thick and although there's no zip, the material is so stretchy (96% Polyester 4% Elastane) you can wiggle into it with no trouble at all. The dress also came with a belt but I actually love the look without it. There was a time when you wouldn't see me without a belt, but because this dress is so well fitted it really wasn't necessary. This is now my third Pink Clove dress and I have no doubt I'll be adding to that collection many more times.

'til next time.

Love and hugs,

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
