So my weird mouth is back. Yep, you guessed it - I have braces again. I'd like to take this moment to thank my parents for my less than perfect teeth. However this time it's the bottom teeth which thankfully is less noticeable. I wonder if my brace mouth makes it into a forum of it's own this time!

I've also been on the Isle of Wight all weekend and took Saturday's beautiful weather as an opportunity to visit Ventnor Botantical gardens with my good friend Jess. I had a great day but maybe that was the codeine. Either way visiting the gardens made a lovely change and breath of fresh air, also allowing me a nice backdrop to shoot my outfit.

Earlier that day you couldn't imagine the remarks I received on my outfit. Granted I am wearing rather short shorts, however they are winter thick shorts and I am wearing over the knee boots and a coat which covers most of me. I'm also fluffy and pink, hardly anything racy or suggestive. Regardless it is my decision what I choose to wear and it really fails me that people in my local town have the audacity to make comment on my clothing decisions. As well as feeling like a circus act by the looks, one women actually looked me up and down and muttered 'oh dear...', surprised when I asked her 'excuse me?'. Sorry lady, but did your outfit get you over 1000 instagram likes? I don't think so!

It occurred to me I only got this confidence to wear what I wanted once I moved to London, and I can really see why now. It is a true shame that people can be so judgemental, but that is island mentality! I encourage any 'islanders', or anybody in similar situations, who read my blog, to ignore the judgement of those who are so small-minded. 

Now for the outfit! The fluffy coat is a George at Asda steal! Big thanks to the girls at Lee Publicity for thinking of me when it arrived in their office, I absolutely love it. The controversial shorts are such a cute winter-spring transitional piece. They're a thick velvet with the floral embroidery and beaded details AND I do believe they're now in the sale. I sized up due to their skimpyness and I think this size is great. The crop is just a cute blush basic which I found to match perfectly with the pinks and what outfit of mine is complete these days without a fluffy bag and OTK boots??
