Do you guys know about footway yet?
I am so excited to talk about these Converse with you. Footway contacted me and asked if I wanted to be sent a pair of shoes to review. Of course I said yes. I had never heard of Footway before but I can see myself shopping on their site again.
Footway present the different types of shoes you can pick in a visual table. Black silhouetted shoes are lined in rows for ease of navigating to the shoes of your dreams.
I knew right away that I wanted trainers and looked through so many options. These mesh leather parchment Converse are a god send. It snowed the day before these photos were taken and I was worried my feet would get cold, but my feet wear toasty warm.

Can you tell that I love my new denim jacket and shirt?
I walked past this field a few times and thought that the lighting was so beautiful and soft and pink in the evening and the perfect place to shoot this outfit.

Getting a cute jacket is one thing, then finding out it’s one of the key pieces for this season is a whole other kettle of fish. I got this jacket purely because it was cute and I love a jacket. Glen Plaid ( Prince of Wales) is all over the blogosphere at the moment and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew that this victorian inspired blouse would be the perfect fit with this look. Really bringing out the 70’s elements, which I am all about. Finally added my mums hand-me-down of a vintage Calvin Klein faux fur bag.
I wore this look to the Dorset Wine Festival at 10 Castle Street, which I’ll tell you all about soon. Thank you for reading.

I spent the weekend in St Albans for my cousins wedding.
My cousin studied fashion at university so I knew her wedding would be beautiful, and it really exceeded my expectations. I wanted to wear something beautiful too, but couldn’t find anything until the last minute. This next culotte jumpsuit is everything I wanted from a wedding guest outfit. Fitted around the waist, loose in the leg to really show of curves.
Accessorised with a few heavy pieces to keep the balance. A woollen trench coat to balance the nude heels and a black Stella McCartney clutch.

This was truly one of the most magical days of the year and am so happy to have been able to celebrate such happiness and love in my family, welcome Tom x
Blogger friends are truly great, they understand that you want cute photos taken of you infront of colourful walls. They know the angles to shoot you and how to make you look confident for your blog. Poppy is one of these friends, we met at university and got on like a house of fire and have taken photos for each others blogs before. We spent a good hour getting the right shots of our outfits. She’s really talented and the best because I love the photos.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that I love a good jacket. My mum actually got me this jacket from a charity shop, about 10 years ago (I know right this jacket is old).
I love bright and bold jackets and should be wearing this jacket more. The clashing colours next to my silk scarf shirt just makes the whole look so bold and statement. The faintest blues in the jacket are picked up with my Lulu Guinness bag, which is my pride and joy. Did I mention that it has fish on it?
Ofcourse I added bat earrings to the look, I love a bit of whimsy in an outfit. I was inspired by Wednesday’s costume in The Addams Family musical which was why we were in Southampton. We went to see the show on opening night at The Mayflower. If you’ve not seen it yet, please do it’s great ( there will be a review on the blog soon)

I’ve kept this dress for a couple of years because it’s so breezy and easy to wear in the sun. Since Britain had decided that it is having summer this year I’ve dressed in another leg baring dress. Which for me is a huge step away from my normal hard dressing style.
The wind catches the handkerchief hem which keeps me cooler and it’s a gorgeous 70’s/80’s turquoise pattern too. yes, i have styled this dress with my gold loafers because they are gorgeous and will cry when they finally fall apart.
Because the dress is a couple years old I’ve looked for some great alternatives that I will put down in the ‘I wore’ section. x
I am so glad the sun had finally decided to stay and am loving being a little beach baby. Who else is loving then sun?

I popped in to London this past weekend to spend some time with the Bloggers Who Brunch people run by the lovely Kirby.
I got the tube from Sloane Square to our event space in North(?) London, and had chats with Katie from LexiLife and Katherine McMorran who is an amazing photographer. We talked about what apps to edit photos on how to set up your camera to get a blur background and how to feel confident on You Tube. We mingled “networked” ate popcorn and learnt a little more about creating content for our channels and blogs.
The views from our event space were amazing, The Shard, St Pauls and the BT tower. 3 landmarks in one view!
event space – breather.com
Wood flooring, abstract artwork and pink L shaped sofas. That’s my kind of event space, with roof top view. I’d love to be able to live here.
I made friends with a few ladies and we all went for lunch at Meat Liquor in the North and it was an experience. I had the stranded burger and a root beer which were both delicious. The decor was everyday Saw 2 vibes. There were TV screens with mixed up images on, and cctv of the dining area and your food came on metal trays and your tables were metal. It was an immersive first time experience into Meat Liqour. I’d definitely go back and take my BF.
Story time: I nipped to the loo after lunch and get burst in on. Which of course made me scream. Yet the chap that did the bursting in on left me with the door open. I have the most nerve wracking pee of my life. Then i accidentally threw my oyster card in the bin and dropped my ring down the tube escalator. I mean could I have been any more of a mess? Find Meat Liqour here there are loads all over London.
It wouldn’t be The Curly Haired Girl without an outfit update post. There is a reason this space is a ‘style and life blog’, Style comes first. I of course wore my new favourite jacket. If you follow me on Instagram ( you all really should @ameliaboswell) you would have seen this look already, with the added extra of my Primark sunnies.

Hi, long time no see.
Sorry about that, but anyway have you been watching Girl Boss on Netflix? It’s a loose story telling of the rise of Nasty Gal and I love it. The clothes are heaven and it’s really a captivating story. In true Girl Boss ( Sophia) spirit, myself and a few of my gal pals from university went charity shop hopping. The first shop we stumbled upon was a British Red Cross and I sniffed out this gorgeous tan leather peacoat within the first few seconds. I flung it on and twirled in front of the mirror then twirled to the cash desk and it was all mine, for £5. £5!!
The photos of this look were taken in the water fountains at Southampton’s new Watermark. I was getting splatted by all the water, hence the face pulling.
I controversially style the peacoat with black and I love the look. My trusted black boots that make my legs look miles long and my most precious mini dress. (It’s the dress I met my boy friend in and I wear it every anniversary) To tie in the tan a little more I dug out my ‘seen better days’ Dooney and Bourke bumble bee barrel bag. I think it got water damaged years ago so the black leather has gone grey but it’s mine and I could never replace it. To finish (the cherry on top) are my fan earrings, given to me by a family friend.

Dungarees have been in every store these past few years. Each season brings a new twist to the game. I’m really into this trend but did’t want to look like every Bert and Harry walking down the street in dungarees so I scooped up this little gem from a vintage kilo sale.
A denim pinafore.
If you’ve not been to a kilo sale you have to go, you pay by the weight of the item and come away with something no one else has. They are the perfect way of sprucing your wardrobe without hitting the bank to hard.
I went full 90’s mixing the denim pinafore with a striped t-shirt, trainers and colourful sport socks. The a-line dress with the pockets is so 90’s and the little strap on the side.
