Feeling pretty WHIMSICAL (I love TOPSHOP lipstick)

I thought as it’s getting all sunny and lovely that I’d purchase a new summery lipstick. I absolutely love Topshop matte lipstick. I’ve had a bright pink colour for ages and it is my favourite lipstick ever. So I thought I’d try Whimsical, which is a coral-y peachy kind of colour.

I was a bit worried that it would come out really orange on my lips but it was quite subtle and as I’ve been doing a little cheeky fake tanning lately, it looked great with a bit of a bronze glow! I went out for drinks with my friends and was drinking wine all night (it was Friday!) and it stayed on really well. I only reapplied once, but it wasn’t really needed, I think I was just overexcited about the new lipstick! hehe.

It’s such a nice summer coral colour and looks really cool with the matte effect on your lips. I also really like the Topshop tubes – I think they’re a really cute design.

So I’m definitely feeling WHIMSICAL!

Peace love and summer vibes x

Urban Outfitters Dreamy Playsuit

Style of the day…

Finally, the sun is here! This week has been gorgeous on the weather front, which makes me very excited to crack out the summer wardrobe! As you can see, I’ve recently had a balayage on my hair – blonder for summer! And I love it. Because I’ve got dark features, the roots match my face, but the softer lighter ends make it so much more summery looking.

I love this playsuit I bought from Urban Outfitters, by Silence + Noise (£39). I bought it a while ago and wore it with tights and boots, but now the sun is shining, it looks great with bear legs! It’s plain, so can easily be glammed up with jewellery to make an impact, but can also be worn casually. The style of the back is slightly drapey and crosses over to show a bit of skin. It’s so versatile, you can literally style it however you fancy.

Also wearing a bag and denim jacket from Topshop and black ankle boots from Primark. Loving denim jackets at the moment!

I’ve braided my hair in a French plait around my face, leading down in to a normal braid – I’m loving experimenting with styles from Pinterest at the moment. My balayage means that you can really see the detail in the styles.

Peace and love and summer style x

Or even wear it through to the evening with a bit of bright lipstick (Rimmel – Kate Moss is my absolutely fave!)

Last night I went out for a much needed night with the girls. And it was so great catching up with them and having a dance! That afternoon, my friend Em and I went for a cheeky trip to New Look to have a browse for some outfit inspiration and I picked up this white top and these heels, planning to wear them with a pair of high waisted jeans for a casual look. When I got home, I was having a little play around with my outfit and I decided to see what it’d look like with my ankle grazing monochrome trousers from Topshop and it randomly just really worked! I don’t often blog about my own outfits, but I loved this look last night. The white top was so flattering – I love the thin straps! And a bargain at £9.99!

I’m also a huge fan of that style of shoe, especially with the shape of my feet – I have very tiny heels so my feet often slip out of shoes, but these were super secure!

Cosy days and sparkly ways

Firstly, I want to say sorry for not having blogged in a month! Crazy behaviour! I have been ridiculously busy settling in to final year at uni… it really is just as hectic as they say! Looking forward to the degree at the end of it though! 🙂

I just wanted to write a little post on what I love so much about Autumn/Winter clothes…

What I do not enjoy is the rain.. and the cold… and getting in to uni looking completely dishevelled and like a drowned rat. However, I do love those cosy times when you put on a big snuggly jumper and it’s frosty and pretty outside.

Also, what is totally brilliant about this time of year, is that party-wear gets SEQUIN-Y and VELVETY and YUMMY.

Topshop’s Party Rules gives you some great tips on wearing sequins… which is worth a read if you like to sparkle! However, in my book, there are no rules about how sequin-y you can be… the more the better! 😉

The sequin range is also amazing… SEQUIN JOGGERS…. YES PLEASE. These will be making the Christmas list cut!

Spread the joy of the wide brim…

Wide brimmed hats are everywhere in high street stores right now. 

I am a huge fan of this trend – I think the right hat can always add a little sophistication and bring an outfit together. I currently own a black fedora hat from Topshop, which I absolutely love because it always makes me feel a bit more glam on a “not-so-glam” kind of day….

But lately I have been oh so very tempted to cheat on my beautiful fedora (which I rocked for most of summer) for something just that little bit more elegant looking. During a sneaky browse of Topshop, I fell in love with a wide brimmed floppy felt hat in Burgundy. This piece of gorgeous would have, however, cost me £28… and as a very poor student currently, I had to swiftly take myself out of the shop and drive myself home immediately.

After this shopping (no, actually BROWSING) trip, the only way to ease the pain of not purchasing this item was to blog about beautiful hats – hence the gushy hat blog post! If you want to lust over some wide brims looking beautiful on beautiful people, then I highly recommend checking out the Free People blog – one of my favourite places to look at beautiful things.
