I am a walking advertisement for wearing too much black clothing, and if it’s not black it’s probably white or grey. My wardrobe is monochrome madness. However, since picking up the pink/nude top I’m wearing here from Missguided I’ve become obsessed with it and love pairing it with my black Asos skinnies, which are no longer available but these are practically the same. I feel it takes a bit of edge off of the jeans and it’s refreshing to add a bit of pink into my wardrobe now that Spring is fast approaching. I am challenging myself to add a bit of colour this year and make what I wear a bit more interesting, we’ll see how that goes…
Hello lovelies, how are we all?
I’m going to start by apologising in case this post is a big ol’ shambles. The photos aren’t the best in the world but this is my first outfit post so be a darling and let me off just this once please!
I chose to team with a white shirt that I got from Next a few months ago, back in the days of 25% discount (ahh I miss you my dear old friend). I went for this look as I was wearing it to work so wanted to give it a formal edge. There’s quite a few things you could pair this beauty with though, my recommendations would be a black and white stripe top or a cream polo neck.
For accessories I kept it very simple with my go to everyday accessories, a few rings, the same necklace I’ve worn everyday for 2 years – my brother got it for me for my 18th, and my Michael Kors watch which was also gifted to me by my brother for my 18th birthday.
Make up wise I chose to go for a pretty simple look, with the focus being orange lipstick. My go to look when I’m feeling lazy is winged liner and a bright lip, it never fails for me. This lipstick was added after the above photo and I was just too lazy to retake the picture of the outfit, apologies for being useless!
Eek that’s a big picture of my face… If you do happen to be interested then the lipstick I’m wearing is Borjouis Rouge Edition in shade 10.
How would you style the dress? Do you think the shirt was a good choice or not? Let me know down below!
Until next time I’m back off down the rabbit hole.
Yesterday had been a long time coming, for me anyway. For a lot of us yesterday was payday, my favourite day of the month by far. Due to this glorious occasion I decided to head into town and make my bank account ever so slightly lighter. Come and have a nose at what I purchased, there’s even a teeny tiny review on a couple of them.
Excuse the feature of underwear, but seeing as this is a haul and that is something I purchased I thought I may as well add it in there.
Bra – Ann Summers
Until Monday there’s 20% off at Ann Summers meaning that this bra along with the matching bottoms cost me only £30. I personally love buying new underwear, in my opinion I always feel a little fiercer with a gorgeous pair of matching undies.
Experimenter Bath Bomb – Lush
Who doesn’t love a good Lush product? Perfect for pamper evenings. I haven’t tried this one yet but was enchanted by the wonderful colours and the smell is to die for – Lush website assures me the scents are vanilla and tonka bean. I’ll be sure to review it once I’ve used it.
Lasting Perfection Concealer – Collection
A cult favourite. My go to concealer to cover any blemish or imperfection. My make up bag is never without one.
Facestudio Blush – Maybeline
I personally love to add a bit of blush to my cheeks and have been stuck in a rut of Rimmel Lasting Finish blush so today when I ventured into Boots I was determined to try something new. I opted for the shade ’60 – Cosmopolitan’ which is a lovely bright pink shade. Perfect for the winter to brighten up my complexion.
Stay Matte Powder – Rimmel
Another item that I’m never without in my make up bag. For £3.99 I really can’t complain. I have oily skin so do have to reapply after a few hours but that doesn’t bother me.
False Lash Effect Mascara – Max Factor
I’ve been leaning towards this mascara for the past few months and now that my current one is as dry as the Sahara I figured it was time to get a new one.
I also picked up two clothing items, shown below. The jumper is from Select and the dress is from New Look.
Did you pick up anything this payday? Let me know down below.
Until next time, I’m back off down the rabbit hole.
