I rarely have the opportunity to do an outfit of the day post with some added beauty. Mainly because I’m rubbish at taking outfit photos of myself and although I shop, I never have full new outfits! So when I got dressed up for a meal I grabbed at the chance, and got Jason to take some photos instead.
I saw this cute little summer dress in Miss Selfridge and just had to have it. It’s so flattering, a lovely colour, and the lace is a lovely finish!
The detailing on the dress has such a summery feel. It’s a pale blue with white stripes, which is a lovely contrast with my new mermaid hair (that’s what I’m calling it, btw)! There’s a lace section in the middle to give a peek of your tan (if you’ve got one anyway). It’s incredibly comfy, and would look great with heels or flats.
It’s £35, so it’s a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe (I’m wearing a size 10)! Buy it here: Stripe Lace Sundress
I’m also carrying my new Top Shop bag, which I bought a week ago. It’s a soft leather-feel bag (not leather!), with a silver clasp. It has quite a long strap, so it can cross over if you’d prefer it and there are two quite big pouches for anything you need!
It was £25 and you can buy it here: OTLEY Double Pouch Crossbody Bag
I also dipped into my Armani make up samples. I love how it makes my skin feel, and I can confidently say that if the Power Fabric was in human form, I’d make sweet love to it.
Before applying any make up, I used The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal mask and Origins Zero Oil Pore Purifying Oil with Saw Palmetto and Mint (which I picked up a full bottle of for 50p from a charity shop!). Then I used Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream, which I let soak in for a good twenty minutes before applying any primer.
What I love about Armani make up is that feels light on my skin, but the coverage is amazing. I really don’t feel like I’m wearing anything (cheeky). I also have on the UV Master Primer, Fluid Sheer Blusher #5, and Maestro Liquid Summer #100.
My lashes are Eylure 083, my eyebrows are Revlon! I also have Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to finish and NYX Matte Lip in Abu Dhabi.
So how excited are you for summer shopping?
