The BEST Cropped Cardigans // Mak Sweater

Leave a Comment

You know when you find a piece of clothing you Love that you just wear them until they're falling apart? Well that's me with Mak Sweater cropped cardigans! They're my ultimate favourite cropped cardigan brand by far! 

A few years back I purchased my very first one from Pinup Girl Clothing not knowing it was in fact made by Mak, I literally wore it until it looked rather worse for wear. After realising I couldn't live without it I decided to buy a couple more but this time from a UK based online store - Campbell Crafts. I was SO happy when they started stocking them as it meant I didn't have to worry about fricking custom charges!! WooHoo!!


I decided to put together a few photos that I'd previously taken for my Instagram page showing most of my cropped cardigan collection. I don't have all the colours but I'm getting there! 

Now onto the sizing - I find its pretty much spot on with sizing and order a medium for my 40'' bust. They do have some stretch in them so all depends on your desired fit. I prefer mine to be fitted as I always have mine buttoned up. They also wash really well and don't fall a part like most cardigans you can by from the high street. I found these actually last and like I'd previously said, my first one lasted me over 2 years!


These are perfect for keeping you warm during the cooler months without covering too much of your outfit. The scooped neckline, 3/4 length sleeves plus neat buttons down the front make them simple but effective. They are cut to bring in your waist so you don't lose your shape which is what I'm always on the lookout for. 

If you're like me and don't want to always order from the US, I've put together a few online stores that you can purchase in the UK & Europe. For my US readers I've added a few that aren't just from Pinup Girl Clothing.

Betty & The Artist // Rock & Romance

Leave a Comment
This past weekend my husband and I attending the wedding reception of our friends Chloe and Alex. It was a beautiful evening of love, laughter and lots of dancing. A week or so before I had a little freak out when I realised I had nothing to wear! Thankfully I received this gorgeous black Betty dress and knew instantly what I wanted to accessorise it with. I had a few lovely compliments which made my night, aside from the beautiful bride of course! I felt a million dollars thanks to Rock & Romance!


I decided on wearing my stunning Woody Ellen clutch that was gifted to me by Ellen herself at London Edge. Completed the look with a few pastel bangles and hair flower. However my curls didn't want to play ball but I worked with what I had! 

 I ordered my usual UK 14 and the fit/sizing of the dress was just right. I found the bust a little tight in the middle but that was my own fault due to the bra I was wearing. (Silly me) The length was just how I like my dresses. Overall verdict: Perfect!

 Chloe & I (The most stunning bride I've ever seen!!)

Autumn Bloom // Karina Dresses

Leave a Comment
Autumn is here and I'm soaking it all in as it's my favourite time of the year! Beautiful leaves that have fallen, cool crisp mornings, pumpkin spice and all things nice! I'm THAT person who goes all out, especially running up to Halloween.
I was rather excited to receive this dress in the mail a couple of weeks ago from Karina dresses and I'm totally in love!


All the colours in this dress are perfect for this time of year, plus it goes so well with my auburn hair. The fit is so comfortable and flattering against my new found curves. The fabric is breathable and is made from microfibre fabrics so it never loses its shape, which is perfect for me as a new Mama to Winter. The wrap style brings in my waist that I always prefer to wear to show my shape. The length is a little longer than what I normally wear but I kinda like it, especially now its getting much cooler. The cross over neckline is perfect and with being said its great for breastfeeding Mamas too!


Karina dresses are definitely a new favourite of mine and I'm certain I'll be adding more to my closet. I found the sizing pretty much spot on but could of easily sized down from M/L to a S/M due to it having tons of stretch. This Margaret dress is American-made in Hudson, NY along with all their other beautifully made dresses.
