Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #9 DATE NIGHT

Curvy / Plus size outfit / Primark shrug cover up / Floral Daisy print dress
It's time for this week's post. As you can see, the theme is 'Date Night'. If I think of a date, I think girly, flowy, cute, simple/nothing crazy, yet comfortable. There is nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable or pulling at your clothes if you aren't 100% or you feel something doesn't sit right.
Curvy / Plus size outfit of the night / George at Asda floral print dress
This outfit it comfortable and fits the cute girly idea I think of on a date with the daisy print and flowy skirt of the dress. I added a sheer black shrug (Primark £10ish) which makes the dress smarter. The shrug is actually a size 8 ( say whaaaat.....I know right?!) but that just shows try things on! It fits me perfectly. The dress was £14 from George @ Asda of all places (definitely worth a look  as you can find some fab items sometimes and you can always scout online before you go). I added a black belt, black leggings as the dress is short and leather ballet flats which have a little bow at the front. Bag wise, I used a simple black envelope clutch.
Heart faceted long necklace / Daisy Print Dress

You can see here how cute the daisy print is. Love the addition of the yellow which is a colour I never wear. I also love this necklace. I wear it all the time and with the heart, it definitely fits with the date night theme. I also find long necklaces elongate your body and are very flattering as they draw the eye down and length ways.
Pretty silver earrings

Revlon ' Enchanting 220 ' Nail Polish / Varnish and face of the day coral lip gloss
Apologies my face was melting due to the heat wave in England, but I wanted to show you my makeup and nails. Make up wise I kept it simple with a powder foundation base, concealer, a touch of bronzer and blush to add some warmth, and a coral lipgloss. For eyes I used a champagne cream eye shadow, a touch of brown eyeliner on the top, black eyeliner in the waterline, a light eyeshadow in the corners of the eye to brighten, and lashings of mascara for those all important flirty fluttery eyelashes.
