Fatshion Faceoff

Fatshion Challenge - Stripped Top

I recently asked if the gorgeous girls behind Fatshion Faceoff, had space for a little one, my blog is my way of challenging myself to try new things and the challenges the girls are setting looked fun.

So first of all thank you so much to the gorgeous Dani of diyfatshion, Hanna of the wardrobe challenge, Olivia of Wait until the sunset, Molly of Molly Pocket and Mouna of Brussels fatshion.

I cant wait to get stuck in. x

This week it is olivia's turn to pick an item to style for the challenge, and her choice this week was a Stripped top, I almost panicked as I have nothing stripped, until I remembered I had bought a stripped pastel jumper a few weeks ago, that had become buried in the mess of my wardrobe.

It is pretty casual but as I have no jeans at the moment I decided to put something together to pop out with my mum on sunday for some lunch.

This is what I came up with!


I teamed the NEw Look striped top with a Black maxi skirt from New Look and and a Black jersey Blazer from Next.

I am not sure this is exactly how I want to wear this top, but I felt comfortable and confident out and about in it, but I do need to take the skirt up a little as I have to hike it up under my boobs to keep it off the floor. 

WEll that was my interpretation, a bit boring, but i will get more adventurous as I get more confident in the challenges I am sure :) x

Go see what the other girls are wearing in their interpretations of this weeks Fatshion Challenge.
