This ribbed jumpsuit really caught my eye a few weeks ago so when a shopping retailer got in touch to ask if I'd like to try their service, I decided to finally order this jumpsuit*.

Octer is one of them shopping websites AND apps that you can shop from all in one place. It shows everything on one website and lets you click through to the direct item from the retailer's website ready for purchase. You can be going on holiday and purchase your entire suitcase from Octer. They stock items from 200 UK brands including the likes of Missguided and ASOS - amazing, right? In just 3 taps, you can browse over 500 different typical search terms that we all search when buying bits online. They also not only stock fashion but kids, home, technology and beauty gifts too.

I also decided to style my new super cool shades* from Cheap Ass Sunglasses. They have a rather exaggerated cat eye frame which I'm not even sure it suits me that much, but I can only try and pull them off! ;) The website has a wide range of on trend sunglasses at very cheap prices. Shipping only took a few days too so I am very impressed and will definitely be ordering from there in the future!

The jumpsuit itself is so comfortable and cosy and perfect for the weather in the UK at the moment - absolutely freezing and so very grey! If you know me, you'll know I love anything with a culoutte or wide leg fit which is what drew me to this white number! I decided to upsize due to the ribbed material and I'm glad I did. The material on the arms is quite tight but not uncomfortable. I decided to pair it with my favourite funky shoes at the moment; my Kurt Geiger LULU flatforms* which are statement in their own right!

That's about all from me today. Expect lots from me this month! I hit all of my goals for my blog in April upon review a couple of days ago and I am very happy! P.S THANK YOU for 4000 followers on Twitter too! x
