FROCKTOBER WEEK ONE
If you know me. You know I love a good frock. As long as it does not show my knees. My thighs. Or really anything from the knee up. Ha. So. I thought I would combine my love of fashion. My social media. And my every day #mumbod to support a worthy cause. Frocktober. Raising awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research.
Some of my nearest and dearest have recently been affected by cancer. Although not Ovarian cancer. Cancer all the same. One woman dies every 8 hours from ovarian cancer. It could be your mother, wife, sister, friend or even your daughter. Frocktober not only helps raise funds and awareness. It also empowers women of all backgrounds and lifestyles to support a common cause.
My first ever week of frocks are below. If you do feel like donating. I would love it. And a big thank you to everyone who already has.
Glassons Linen Blend Button Through Midi Dress in Keepsake Lilac $59.99.
Great fit. Easy to wear. Comfortable. Roll sleeve. Cute button detail. And best of all. It has pockets.
Although I avoid linen at all costs to avoid ironing. This one is worth it. I am wearing a size 12. Alas. As I am small chested. It is a little big on top. And I am pretty self conscious about showing too much boob. For me any cleavage makes me uncomfortable. Eep. The colour is a winner. Not normally a colour I would go for. But definitely a new favourite. If it is not your colour. Do not worry. It also comes in Space Navy and Byron Sand White.
Little Party Dress Charlotte Leopard Dress in Pink $69.95
I love leopard. But would you believe. This is the first ever leopard dress I have had in my wardrobe. And I can guarantee it is going to get a good work out this spring and summer. The ideal length for midi lovers like me. Dress up with heels. Keep it simple in flats. Or even sneakers like me.
It is generous in sizing. So if you are on the smaller chest size like me. I would recommend sizing down.
Wearing a Size 10.
Paired with Superga Flatforms.
And Bandwagon Black Rubber Le Specs Sunglasses.

Little Party Dress Rita Black Floral Dress $74.95
Not normally a fan of florals. But I am a fan of this fit. Cinched in at the waist. Tiered skirt. Flowing long sleeves. And a high neckline. This is my newest favourite to wear to work. Even better. It does not need to be ironed. Winning.
Wearing a Size 12.
Paired with Rubi Shoes Sock Boots.

Fabrik Maxi Dress Sold Out
This is an old favourite from last season. It is the perfect colour. Oh so comfy. And it has pockets. Alas. It sold out super quick. But you can get your shop on over at Fabrik. They stock oh so many fabulous quality pieces of clothing. Natural fibres. Both beautiful. And ethical.
Daisy Strapless Dress $99.00 Sale Price.
To be honest. This was not my best online buy. Not the best quality. Not the best service. Not the first time I have bought from this business. Not the first time I have been disappointed. And definately the last time I will be shopping here. So. Out of respect to the brand. I will not be sharing where it is from. Instead. I have share a few Daisy Floral Style Dresses that I love instead. From brands I have shopped with before. And adore.
C/MEO COLLECTIVE Immerse Midi Dress $190.00
ASOS Polka Dot Daisy Dress On Sale $38.00
M.N.G Daisy Dress $99.95
THREE OF SOMETHING Daisy Dress On Sale for $49.50
Mister Zimi Striped Denim Camilla Dress $90.00 On Sale
Yes. Of course. A Mister Zimi Dress had to feature. And this one. Although it is a little on the ‘booby’ side for me. And I do not have a toned torso. I love it all the same. Made from a denim like material. Super cute tie up at the front. And a classic thin stripe. A winner for summer.
This is true to size. I am in a 12. And because it ties at the front. It is adjustable for all cup sizes.
The Self Styler Gemma Linen Midi Wrap Dress in Black $99.00.
I will be honest. I was not sure this style was going to suit me. But. I think it will suit everyone. It is a wrap dress. So you can tie it as tight. Or as loose as you like. Dress is up with heels. Or keep is casual in flats. Plus. Pockets. Big. Beautiful. Pockets. The absolute best for #mumlife. Midi length. Linen material. And available in a few colours. Black. Mustard. And even a Blue Gingham. I think I want one of each.
