Some summer clothes from Shein!

I feel like I am stepping way out of my comfort zone with this blog post. I have been sharing more photos of myself lately. More selfies and some of the nice outfits that I have been wearing but nothing like this, not a whole blog post of me! Eek!

Shein order

A couple of weeks ago I ordered from Shein, not just for myself but for the rest of my family too. It was a big order and I ordered some clothes that I would never have ordered this time last year. I have lost a bit of weight, I've started wearing more dresses and I am feeling more confident in myself.

I stepped way out of my comfort zone and bought a couple of skirts, I never wear skirts! The first one, the Corduroy Skirt which I mentioned in my Friday Favourite post was too big but I did manage to move the buttons and now it fits. The second one I didn't think was going to fit as it was the same size as the corduroy skirt but amazingly it did. The Flap Pocket Denim Skirt.

My thought is that I can wear it with boots and tights in the autumn and winter and a like the 
Square Neck Ribbed Knit Sweater I bought. I love the fit of it and it feels really nice. I did worry it might feel too woolly, I don't like that feeling on my skin but it's OK. In the warmer months I can wear it with a t-shirt, trainers or a light, short sleeved sweater like the 
Solid Color Batwing Sleeve Knit Top. Considering it's heavier than the grey sweater it feels much airier and cooler and not just because the sleeves are shorter.

A bought a few t-shirts and these two below were my favourite. The rainbow striped one just screamed summer to me. I can imagine wearing it with just about any set of pants or shorts that I own. The Puff Short Sleeve T-Shirt was not a colour I would usually go for but it was only a couple of pounds so I thought why not. I think it would go with something darker on my bottom half.

The dress in the middle above, the Floral Print Square Neckline Spring Dress With Puff Sleeves was longer on me than I thought it was going to be but I like it. I was planning to wear it with leggings but I think I can get away wearing it without them whenever the summer decides to arrive.

When I ordered this High Neck Contrast Color Long Sleeve Dress I didn't expect to love it as much as I do! I had planned to keep it for the winter to wear with tights and my boots but when I tried it on I realised it goes so well with my white trainers and it's not as thick as it looks so would be perfect for the chilly days that we have been having lately.

I think I look good in it and I definitely feel good in it. It really isn't something I would normally go for, the only reason I bought it was because it was on sale and I only paid around £3.

Now onto my favourites! The Striped Cinching Waist Dress!

Striped Cinching Waist Dress

This is so comfy and again not something I would usually wear. I tend to stay away from anything that has a lot of white on it as I always seem to attract dirt but I am being brave. I already know where I am going to wear this, we have something planned next month that it would be perfect for.

I seem to have a thing about dresses that have red on them so of course I was drawn to these. These are dresses that I will wear leggings under as they are a little on the short side to show more of my legs. The Summer Holiday Crop Elegant Ditsy Floral Dress With And Puff Sleeves seems to fit me so well and I love it. The leggings I am wearing underneath are just one's from Primark.

2 dresses

 Floral Print Batwing Sleeve Belted Dress was a bargain at just £5 and the material feels like it should cost more. I am glad I went for a bigger size in this as there isn't much give in the material. I feel good in it and I can see me wearing this a lot. 

I am so happy with what I bought from Shein. All of the items that I have mentioned were size 20 / 2XL apart from the floral dress above which I got in a size 22 / 3XL I also bought some bracelets which will be appearing soon and a black cardigan. I really do like the long cardigans from Shein as they always seem to be exactly the right length that I want, as long as my dresses! Oh and I random find was a Grey + Sloan Memorial Hospital sweatshirt, it was such a lucky find, I was just browsing and it was there. There was no mention in the description. I had to buy it.

Do you shop from Shein? What have you bought lately?


  1. I've never shopped from Shein. I really like the the Floral Print Square Neckline Spring Dress With Puff Sleeves, perfect for summer. I'll have to check out the sweatshirt, we're a little addicted to Grey's Anatomy!

  2. You look fabulous! I just got an order in from Shein a week or two ago; mostly short sleeve and sleeveless shirts for summer with a few pairs of shoes thrown in just to see how they'd fit. I really liked the shoes and have been wearing the shirts on rotation since I find that if I don't wear something new a few times right away I tend to forget I even have it.

  3. I love this post! Good on you for sharing more pics of yourself. I need to do this more.
    I love all of your outfits and especially the last couple of the dresses with the 3/4 leggings. This is something I generally wear.
    You look amazing by the way, pretty lady! xxx

  4. I've only ever once ordered from there and didn't have much joy with the material, quality or fit. Good to know they have those sizes in although I think I'd need to order bigger to make sure they fit. Looks like you were lucky to get success with tyour orders
