So, it’s been a while – and for so many different reasons! You may have noticed from recent posts (find some here) that I have been somewhat missing from my photos. I have been blogging just as much as normal, but I have stuck more to flat lays and hidden behind the camera. But that time is over. I have been persuaded out from my comfort zone – but only by an incredible fashion collaboration!
What you may not know is that I am super fussy when it comes to blog collaborations. I have been offered many many fashion collaborations over the last few months but I haven’t felt happy or confident enough to come out from behind the camera. But when Femme Luxe approached me about collaborating on their knitwear campaign for Autumn, I knew it was time to step out into the light and embrace Autumn in all its glory!
And, it helps that the knits on offer from Femme Luxe are absolutely incredible!
I had so much choice with Femme Luxe and I really took my time to pick items that I felt represented me accurately and girls like me!
I’ll give you the run down:
I am a 26 year old woman
I am newly engaged (yay)
I am so underconfident and absolutely hate how I look
I am not alone
I don’t know anyone that wholly loves their body
I am working on it!
Woah. Now that’s out there, let’s talk Femme Luxe and fashion shall we?
This super cute Stone Oversized Split Sized Knitted jumper is perrrrfect!
I literally haven’t taken it off since it arrived. It is super comfy and over sized without looking like it’s trying to hide too much! It is a lovely colour that is forgiving for anyone who has lost their summer tan as quickly as I have!
It’s a knit that can easily be worn to work (obviously I’ve already done that), dressed up or just worn to pick pumpkins.. again, guilty!
It’s light and super soft but really keeps you warm! I chose to wear it with a simple black top underneath and either the blackest jeans or leggings. It’s all about comfort in this weather for me so leggings and cute trainers while I find my perfect pumpkin is the best way to go!
I love the high neck of it and that it is flattering while giving the illusion of shape with the long slit up the side!
This super cute white off the shoulder knitted jumper is the cutest short jumper that I have been brave enough to wear for the longest time. It is super soft and the brightest white.
The cable knit isn’t restrictive or uncomfortable and there’s loads of room to stretch and unshape the jumper if you want to – I always prefer a knitted jumper after a few wears when you can get it into the shape that you really want!
I usually steer clear of bright white because I am so clumsy and I spill absolutely everything on myself, but this beautiful jumper is as good in real life as it looks on the beautiful models on Femme Luxe.
Finally, I chose this risky but gorgeous nude front wrapped jumper. I have been seeing this style of knit and jumper everywhere recently but I was not feeling brave enough to take the plunge and put focus on an area I am already incredibly self conscious about!
However, when this beautiful jumper arrived on my doorstep, I took a huge sigh of relief and thanked the fashion Gods for Femme Luxe!
While this style is definitely risky, paired with a classic black ensemble (classic Rosie) I feel super comfortable and confident in this jumper!
I love that it isn’t restrictive or too tight on the goodies – mine are huge and don’t like being compressed!
The material breathes really well and sits just right on the bust rather than buffling and sitting funny! And, even though it is shorter than I’d usually be comfortable with, it does have a really lovely cosy feel to it. Dressed properly for someone like me, it can be really flattering while still being flattering to curvy girls!
And, I think that’s why I finally chose to embrace being in front of the camera, Femme Luxe is a brilliant fashion brand but most importantly, they are a brand that truly celebrate normal and curvy girls! It’s ok to be a little on the heavier side, it’s ok to feel under confident and it is definitely ok to treat yourself to some knits that will make you feel and look great!
Happy shopping loves!
