WhatLauraWore: Losing 5 Stone

Today I thought I’d share with you a quick outfit post from earlier this week, admittedly, this outfit would be gorgeous if only it fit a little better.  However wearing ill fitting clothes is a small price to pay when you have reached a milestone in your life… Last week I past the five stone mark in my weight loss journey and I am over the moon with myself!  I’m trying not to buy new clothes just yet, except the odd dress for a night out, as I’m wanting to continue on my journey and buy a new wardrobe before I go on holiday in a few months time.  I don’t see the point in buying new clothes now when I am determined for them to not fit in the not too distant future!  I still wanted to show you this outfit though as I think it’s really pretty, girlie and perfect for spring and summer.  The bag was an absolute bargain, on sale in Primark for £3 instead of £8!  I’m not wearing any makeup on these photos either.  I’ve been going make-up free while at work everyday and my skin has really thanked me for it.


White linen trousers from Evans

Pink ruched sleeved cardigan from New Look

Blue floral strappy top from New Look

Flip flops from Jack Wills

Bag from Primark

What are your goals this summer?  Have you treated yourself to anything nice lately?

    Huge congratulations Laura on the weight loss,I know what it feels like to lose some weight.In the last 7 months i have been able to lose 3 stones and half and i feel great.Regarding your clothes that feels too big now, you can take some of them to the seamstress to take them in for a better fit.Well done girl.

    Hi Laura!I am a reader from Sweden who absolutely love your blog. And you are a gorgeous girl. But I would like to know how you lost so much weight? Because I've tried so many different diets but none of them works for me. I would really like it if you would tell me how you managed to do it. xxx
