Alli Plunkett

Lifestyle Writer & Founder of Natty Me Clothing

Alli Plunkett started www.nattyme.co.uk with a mission to help ladies be confident and charismatic as they travel life's journey. As a lady who had lost confidence due to life experiences such as divorce, motherhood and changing career paths, Alli understands how important it is to feel good about yourself and project a positive image.
Natty Me is intended to be a resource for ladies who want to read about issues that affect us all. Within its pages you will hear other ladies relationship, career and lifestyle stories and will learn how to stay confident, healthy and stylish.
Alli spent the first half of her working life connected to beauty, lifestyle and fashion in one way or another before completing a degree in law and going down the 'writing route'. Happily she has now combined the two.
Natty Me is heavily influenced by Alli's personal experiences. She introduced the Natty Me Clothing Range after she realised the power of 'personal style' and recognised the direct collaboration between feeling good in your clothes and feeling confident about your life.
The Natty Me Clothing Range is all about strong, season-less, adaptable pieces.

Why School Uniform Is Bad For Our Children

Every day we send our children to school in identical clothes, worn in identical manners. I don't know about you but I spent my children's younger childhoods encouraging them to be different from one another and then, along came school and told them to dress identically.

A Guide To Keeping Your Clothes Looking Great For Longer

Despite our clothing coming complete with washing labels, we all still have washing disasters. Jumpers halve in size, dresses misshape, and colours run. So, I got to thinking, maybe a post that offers you guys a basic insight into the different fabrics and how to care for them might assist.

Choose Confident - Learn To Love Yourself

Once you've evaluated your reflection and decided what you want to accentuate and what you want to divert from, consider what style you like. You don't need to choose a current prevailing fashion from a magazine; just decide what you like and what you feel comfortable with.

Is There Still A Stigma To Single Parenting?

In 2008 when I separated from my children's father I didn't really give becoming a single mother a second thought. It wasn't a choice, it was just something I was going to have to do. I don't recall feeling any stigma at the time, and I certainly haven't ever received any abusive comments from any one that I know. Unless I was just too busy 'getting on with it' to notice.

Who Do You Dress To Please?

Personally being in a relationship has calmed my personal style. I am very aware of not wearing anything that could be considered as 'fashionably risky' when going out with my husband. Fashion isn't high on my husband's list of priorities and he doesn't particularly understand why people would want to draw attention to themselves through their appearance. I'm conscious of this as I dress to spend time with him.

Why Cheap Clothes Aren't Worth It

Doesn't it make sense to invest at least, in some timeless pieces? Pieces that we know we can adapt to suit our occasion; pieces that will sit proudly in our wardrobes for years to come. And when I say 'invest' I'm not talking about spending ridiculous amounts. I just mean good-quality, fairly-made clothes. The characteristic to quality clothing is in the material and the construction, not the logo.
