burnt orange

24/08/2013


what i'm wearing:
h&m crop top

lets clear this up, i'll be the first to admit i have neither height nor slender legs to pull off midi/bodycon style garments. that being said when i saw this on offer for £7.99 i had to double take, especially with topshop and other places selling the same thing with an additional £10 added to the price tag. although maybe i should have re-considered as my normally lovely other half decided to tell me in my full length shot that i looked pregnant. thanks liam love you too.  i've said it many times in other blog posts but this year i've realised how much i love wearing the colour orange. i don't know whether its because it suits my complexion as i'm blonde or maybe i just actually like the colour and it doesn't suit me at all, who cares? when i'm buying things now i always try to see if i can wear them in the upcoming colder months and this skirt is definitely a piece i can see layering up with a thick knit jumper and chunky boots! can you tell i'm an autumn girl? i honestly can't wait for scarfs and knits to become a regular thing.

just wanted to slip in a picture of product i've been absolutely loving at the moment, which is the NARS 'at first sight' palette. it was my first ever NARS product, sent to me by the lovely people at HQ hair a few weeks back and now i totally understand the hype. it contains four eye shades, a blush and bronzer and they are all super high pigmented and perfect for everyday use. for the past two weeks it's been my go to product for creating both looks for work (with the lighter neutral shades) or evening (a smokey brown eye look) and of course the blush and bronzer can always be used. can't recommend enough.

  1. Haha, you don't look pregnant at all! This looks lovely and it is SUCH a flattering colour on you :)
    I'm also pretty jealous of your Nars! My best friend has a Nars bronzer and it looks amazing but I can't justify buying one just yet! You're so lucky :)
    Lovely post and its a pleasure following your blog :)
    Keep in touch!!
