What I Wore: Transatlanticism.



Dress – Boohoo.
Leggings: H&M.
Slipper boots: Primark.

Okay, the one thing I’ve learned today is that taking outfit photos is hard work. My room isn’t big enough & I’m not short enough to take proper full length pictures which I must admit, I’m a little annoyed about - if only I were a few inches shorter! Also in 99% of the (many) images I took I seem to have blinked at just the point the shutter clicked, typical! Behind the camera I’m comfortable, in front of it I become an awkward fool. Oh dear. Maybe practise makes it easier? Please tell me it gets easier!

Keeping accessories simple with a dress as bold as this one is an absolute must for me because I’m admittedly a bit boring safe with my outfits.

Plane necklace – Asos.
Heart ring – Scape jewellery.
Charm bracelet – 21st birthday present.

I’ve fallen back in love with my cool dusk blush from The Body Shop & I think it’ll be a staple for me this winter because it’s not matte which I adore. I bought a back up in the York Designer Outlet for £3 so luckily I won’t be running out any time soon.

Today is a lazy day so I kept the rest of my face super simple with just a little Healthy mix foundation, Benefit Boi-ing & Erase Paste concealers and lashings of Big & Curvy mascara from The Body Shop.

What did you wear today?

PS. Do you have a lookbook or a chictopia account? I just got them & I have no clue how to use them at the moment but if you’d like to be my friend or whatever you do to follow people on there then that would be wonderful!

  1. Oh you look so sweet in that dress and matching flower! And your make-up makes you look like a little doll! (: Lovely outfit. Oh I completely understand your pain with outfit photos, it gets a lot easier after a few attempts though! I went for a slightly nautical-esque outfit today as on my blog, paired with red shoes seeing as I live overlooking the marina 'n all ;) xxx

  19. @Kim - Thank youu! I got these quite a while ago but I think I saw some similar on my last Primark tip a few days ago. Hopefully they'll get some more in when it gets colder. I love these & they were only £1 or something ridiculously cheap!
