I've worn glasses since I was 12 and still remember my very first pair; They were from a local independent optician, the choice was abysmal, but they still cost my mum a small fortune. Nobody went online to buy glasses then, you were kinda forced to buy locally and accept the ridiculous prices, but now it's the only way I'd buy my glasses so I thought I'd show you my most recent pair, and tell you why online is where its at for eyewear.

I recently realised that I've adopted a bit of a spring uniform. The same simple outfit formulation but just switching up the pieces within it to make it look a little different each time. It's the perfect smart/casual look, so thought I'd share in case it's just the kinda vibe you're looking for.

You'll probably be quite familiar with that stomach wrenching, impending doom feeling if you, like me, have anxiety. I imagine everyone gets anxious from time to time, but anxiety is like a constant - on the verge of panic - feeling which looms over you, just waiting to ruin your day. Recently I've been looking into some different methods to help combat mine, so thought I'd share them in the hope that they even help one anxious babe.

So, you might be looking at this outfit and thinking Chloe, you're wearing 95% powder pink, how could that not be in your comfort zone? Well pals, it's not the colour palette thats a comfort pusher for me, it's the trousers.

Whilst it's still pretty cold in the UK, I'm holding onto the hope that we're getting nearer to the warmer spring weather, and with spring comes new collections, new trends and many a new item to spend all of your money on!
Here are six trend items for the coming season with plus-size friendly options for each, available now. It's always nice to have a few items ready for the new season isn't it?! We definitely don't have the volume of trend options as our straight-size counterparts - equally unsurprising and frustrating, but I'm hoping we'll see more variations of each trend in plus-size over the coming months. Let me know which of these is your favourite, think mine is definitely statement sleeves.

My style has evolved quite considerably over the past year. I used to accessorise a little too hard, and never really felt put together or comfortable that I'd found my own 'style'. Now, when I'm organising an outfit I look for simple pieces as my starting point and build the look from there. I have a few tips for doing just that - dressing up your favourite basic wardrobe staples to make chic, put together looks.

Two of my favourite things in life are - loungewear, and self-care. There is nothing better than getting into something cosy and comfortable after a long, chilly day of adulting, but when that's mixed with looking after my mind and body simultaneously, it's even better!

I think I spent most of September-December searching for a pair of good quality thigh high boots in an actual wide fit. Some brands definition of wide fit is an additional 1cm of fabric - sorry to tell you, that is no help to anybody! So, I was a little surprised to find not one, but TWO pairs of boots which fit well, weren't at all expensive and actually fit a chunky leg - YAS.

Athleisurewear has to be one of the most comfortable trends to have ever graced our wardrobes. Leggings, hoodies and trainers galore, it's thankfully a trend that's here to stay due to it's super popular relaxed yet fashion led infusion.
