Love This Sunday // margot meanie

I often wear a lot of black, so much so, that I even made it my blogs tagline.  But that doesn’t stop me from still being playful with colour!  I do love surprising people with wearing tons of cute colours paired with sweet accessories and bright make-up. {though I did still manage to pack a lot of black in this outfit anyway!}

This week I’m wearing a cheeky jelly bean swimsuit gifted from Love This Sunday.  They are a kitschy fun swimwear company that just recently expanded their sizing up to a 3x!!!

To celebrate the new size range, they invited me to pick one of their suits and style it in my own way that could be worn year round.

Now, they have some freakin’ CUTE prints which made it hard to pick; french fries, hamburgers, breakfast food bikini’s..to die for!! But when my eye rested on the Jelly Bean one piece I was purely smitten!

I was super impressed with the colour and quality of material when I first opened my parcel, but then a little concerned that perhaps the print on the suit would look broken or washed out once it was on me.  Happily, it didn’t it held up beautifully and vibrantly!  I ordered the 3x and it fits quite nice, but I am a very busty gal and it sits a wee low on the décolletage, so I plan to wear a bright coloured bandeau when I go swimming in it.  I really love the low scoop on the back as well!

I’m very happy with this swimsuit and super stoked to jump in my friends pool with it on!

Things to keep in mind:

I ordered the 3x, I am an 18/20 US and it just fits me.  It’s not going to fit on much larger bodies sadly though if you are smaller in the bust it should work if you’re a size larger. Hopefully these will be a wild success and maybe  they’ll include more sizes again!! It does not have any support for the girls, so if you are larger busted, you may need to wear a bra or add a bandeau for modesty or comfort.

But I must say it again, the print is the CUTEST and the quality is aces!!  I love this suit and I Love This Sunday! <3

what I wore:

//sheer black blouse – Ross {in Las Vegas}

These are the last outfit photos I took before I dyed my hair blue!

This was for a date day I had during my anniversary week off.  We went for tea and to stock up on our favourite cream earl grey, as well as for ice cream and the items for a Parisien picnic.  I meant to get photos of it all, but we were having fun and it was blisteringly hot out so I completely forgot to document the rest of the day.  Though I did post a photo on instagram of the picnic, which ended up being inside our shady place as opposed to the garden, which was just far too warm.

july wishlist // forever21+

forever 21+ wishlist // margot meanie

This wishlist is a BIG one!!  Since I’m not currently working, my spending budget has been nil and it’s kind of been killing me a little bit.   This is generally a time of year that I’m refreshing my summer wardrobe and bringing in some sorely needed new pieces {like swimsuits!!} but alas, I am stuck drooling at the {online} window.

If I had money right now, these would all be one their way to me already!

top row left to right

// Heart-Shaped Sunglasses

// Retro Cat-Eye Sunglasses

// F2009 Half-Frame Sunglasses

I have a thing for sunnies and I especially have a thing for cat eye & heart shaped sunnies!  I like to keep a collection as they all work so wonderfully with different outfits and I find they can really change the tone of a look.

2nd row left to right

// Poetic Dream Crochet Blouse

// Dynamite Sheer Gathered Top

// Raglan Crop Top

I kinda really need some new tops, some of mine are beginning to look a bit shabby.  The navy blouse is super cute, especially with it’s crocheted yolk.  The breezy, sheer, gathered top would work well with tonnes of items I have, not to mention as a great cover up for the swim suits and I’d love to get a nice basic black crop for a lot of everyday looks.

3rd row left to right

// Classic Straw Boater

// Chic Open-Knit Bowler Hat

I’ve been craving a natural straw boater hat for a few months now, this one is perfect and cheap!  I’m always on the look out for cute bowlers as well, I like this one in straw, so it’s not too hot to wear in the summer heat.

4th row left to right

// Nouveau Deco Bodycon Dress

// Retro Dot Surplice Romper

//Mesh-Trimmed Bodycon Dress

I’ve been aching for the deco & mesh trimmed bodycon dresses for a while now, especially after seeing them both on fellow bloggers.  They’re fabulous for evening occasions & the playsuit is perfect for day!

5th row left to right

// Geo Faux Leather Cuff

// Subtle Geo Midi Rings

// Cutout Crescent Necklace

I love the gold & faux leather cuff, as I generally love geometric patterns, especially in jewelry, but I also already have the matching earrings! I really like the simple shapes on this set of midi rings and that bib necklace is AWESOME!

6th row left to right

// Goddess Cutout Swimsuit

// Polka Dot Bow Shorts

// Midnight Mesh Swimsuit

Last but not least for summer, swimsuits and shorts!!  I am severely lacking in both as of right meow.  I really love all the fatkini’s going around, but for myself, personally, I still like a one piece and these two black numbers are right up my alley!!  They’re both classy, but each have a special feature on each one.  I also like black swimsuits {or darker, solid colours} as they’re a bit mysterious and sexy as well!  And, how CUTE are these shorts?!!  Polka dots…bows…high waisted…I want them so BAD!!!

wishlist // the clutch

clutches

One thing about being a fashion or style blogger is you are always looking for the perfect accent to your outfit.  Some sort of punctuation and a clutch can be just that item!

I really love the trend of an over sized clutch lately, but even just a small clutch can compliment an outfit so nicely.  It’s a wonderful statement in taste!

I’ve been finding my clothing choices lately to be very monochrome, which works well, since it seems to be fairly on trend.  But I find myself wanting a little something extra for each look and I think it’s the clutch that’s been missing!

These are a few of my top clutches I’ve seen while online window shopping lately!  (Don’t forget that hologram clutch from last weeks ASOS wishlist as well!!)

1//Patent Leatherette Clutch – Forever 21. Cute and ready for a party & it’s on sale for $13.99!!

2//Nali 3D Stone Clutch Bag – ASOS, I love how bold this bag is! It’s large, bright yellow and studded! Be still, my beating heart!

3//Cutwork Clutch, SimplyBe, I adore the laser cut and the bright pink underlay! I also love that this one comes with a crossbody strap!

4//Vegas Cutout Clutch, Fashion to Figure.  I have been enamored with this bag since GarnerStyle posted it on facebook a couple months ago.  It also comes in a great yellow, but is sadly sold out in that colour right meow.

5//Modernist Faux Leather Clutch, Forever 21. Ultra simple & chic clutch that will work with absolutely any outfit!

6//Elusive Edition Bag, ModCloth.  This novelty clutch has a curious whimsy to it that just draws me in.  Absolutely perfect for witchy days or Harry Potter inspired outfits!!

 

What kind of bag are you coveting right now?

PS.  If you are wanting to see more of what I’m up to, like what I’m reading or listening to, or more ootd’s, make sure to follow me on instagram & facebook!

I just have to start with saying how ridiculously happy I am to have photoshop back!!  I was reeeeally missing making these wishlists so very much!

I also had the idea to redo my blog space a bit, but had to wait until I had access to photoshop again to do up the changes.  I’m super happy with the results, what do you think?

Secondly, I am LOVING what ASOS has in shop right now!

I’m a complete & total fan of monochrome and I love all the options they have.  I know these looks aren’t 100% monochrome as there is a teeny amount of colour in the holographic clutch and the lining of the Victorian lace blouse, but I think it’s subdued enough to add some fun to an overall monochrome look.

I’ve been loving all the ropers around, but haven’t felt like I’d found the right one for me just yet and I think I have finally landed on it!  I love the buttons and it seems super light and breezy.  How cute would it look with that white blazer??  This look is perfectly edgy, especially adding in the masculine studded shoes.  Though you could femme it up with adding those every so bad ass laser cut  heels.

I’m always on the fence when it comes to very open back dresses, as I absolutely love how they look but am apprehensive of them on myself as I always have to wear a bra, but in the case of this sheer chiffon cage back dress by Truly You, I think the design easily lends itself to be worn with a blatant bra showing ala Carrie Bradshaw.  And look how pretty and flowy it is!! Add some rock in roll sandals and I’m set!

I. Love. This. Skirt!

But I’m also scared of it, because it is white and me and white are often a messy match.  But its so pretty and I am loving the sheer panel.  I’ve been seeing variations of this skirt all over the blogosphere and it just makes me want it more.  It’d be like a test, can be grown up enough to wear this and not spill?  A challenge I am willing to take on!

I think what I love about all the shoes featured, is though they are all fairly different, they could easily go with each outfit and change the feel instantly!

Modcloth Uniquely You Campaign // The Vivacious & Vibrant Dress in Noir

// Modcloth Uniquely You Campaign // The Vivacious and Vibrant Dress in Noir by margot meanie

Last week I was contacted by Modcloth to participate in their Uniquely You Campaign. Of course I said YES, as I’m a huge fan of Modcloth and adore that they offer stylish clothes to ladies of all sizes!!

This weeks item was the Vivacious and Vibrant Dress in Noir. It’s simple and chic, but has the added detail on the neckline to make it feel like a really special piece.  It come in a variety of colours and comes in sizes small -4X!

Many looks came to mind when I first saw this dress, but ultimately, as day at the track won out!

Seriously, since this dress is so versatile, it’s just a blast to accessorize it!

Let’s start with how amazing this hat is! It’s so chic and perfect for a long day out in the sun. I try to hide from direct sunlight as much as possible and this hat will facilitates in style!

Since the hat is a golden straw, I decided to rock gold and yellow pieces with the rest of the look. This clutch is sooo vintage looking, I’m dying! Add a glint of gold on the wrist, some cute panda earrings (staying in the black, white & gold theme!), big black posh looking sunnies and the amazingly cute yellow wedge heels and this look is out of the gate!!

 

But since I loved this hat to very much, I did two bonus looks including the hat!
