What I Wore: Paper Planes and Playground Games.

Firstly I’d just like to say a huge thank you for all the lovely comments on my first outfit post, I really wasn’t expecting such an overwhelmingly positive response but it really made me smile. I’ve definitely been bitten by the outfit bug and this time round it was a little easier. By that I mean I didn’t have to take almost 60 images in a bid to find one where I wasn’t mid-blink, am I actually gaining control of my face?!

The cooler weather of late has encouraged me start layering again. Autumn and winter are my favourite seasons by far because if you’re cold you can put more clothes on, but when you’re too hot there’s only so far you can go!

Dress: Gino NV.
Tee: Primark.
Cardigan: H&M.

Excuse my odd pointy finger in the first photograph, it appears to have a mind of it’s own and for some reason I can’t help but find it incredibly annoying. Weird finger aside, this dress is one of my favourites. The cute pinafore style & bow detailing is really cute and the way it’s cut at the top gives my modest bust a bit of an imaginary size-boost. The cardigan on the other hand is a bit of a pain in the bum because every time it’s washed it shrinks and has to be stretched back into shape. The stretching is taking its toll but I just love its shape & colour so much I’ll keep wearing it until I can’t anymore. I now know why there was a huge pile of them in H&M for £5 and I will avoid in future.

Over the last few days I’ve loved wearing really simple make up that only takes me 10 minutes max to apply. Today I tried the max volume flash mascara by Rimmel again & I still hate it. It takes far too long to dry & because I have quite hooded eyelids the mascara just smudges everywhere unless I keep my eyes closed for 15 minutes. I’ve had it for quite a while and I thought maybe it’s one that gets better with time, but nope, instead it’s going in the bin. Big & curvy I’m sorry I deserted you - please take me back! Cream blush is still amazing in my opinion & glow by NYX is one of my favourites, it’s a beautiful colour that I’d recommend over and over.

My lip combination today was a bit different. I opted for Vintage Pink by Rimmel, which looks quite purple on my lips with Wild about Violet lipgloss from Revlon over the top. Despite being super pale I actually quite liked it, a definite combination for winter.

What did you wear today & what are your favourite make up looks at the moment?

  6. I feel your pain about the cardigan! I have one in what looks like the same material, I've had to start rolling the sleeves up because they've shrunk so much. Yours is a gorgeous colour though! xo
