What I Wore: I'm feeling so bohemian like you.

Whenever I put this dress on I feel like I'm channeling my inner hippie and I just adore it. I absolutely feel like I was born in the wrong decade, or perhaps in a previous life I lived my teenage years through the 60's and into the 70's dancing at festivals with flowers in my hair.

Dress: Noa Noa.
Nail Polish: Revlon Purple Petal.
Clothes that you can just put on without thinking too much and still feel pretty are what I am forever searching for. I'm not a fashion expert and although I love clothes I don't want to over-think my outfits because I think that would take the fun out of it. Fashion for me is about not trying to hard & hoping that in time it will all come naturally. Or maybe that's where I'm going wrong, who knows!

The simple tie just under the bust gives this dress some shape and makes it flattering on my pear-shaped figure. It's super easy to make it even more flattering with the addition of a fairly wide waist belt worn just under the bust which I wear on days when I'd like it to look a little more fitted. Mostly though I like to keep it quite floaty and bohemian.

Charm Bracelet & Watch: 21st birthday present. 
Necklace: Handmade Alice in Wonderland locket. 
This time I opted for quite simple silver accessories but I think the dress can take a few statement accessories because of its neutral colour palette.
I'm still being so boring simple with my make up but hopefully that's all about to change because today I got my Asos order which contained 4, yes four, Illamasqua lipsticks. To be fair they were in the sale so it would have been rude not to make a sneaky purchase, right? Please say yes! I'm trying to get my lips in tip-top condition so I can wear them because 3 of them are matte, so, if you have any amazing lip balm recommendations (not carmex!) I would love to hear them! I'm looking for something moisturising that really sinks in without leaving a greasy residue, please say it exists!

What are you wearing today?

P.S. The lack of pink hair is such a giveaway that these pictures were taken last week. I'm thinking of giving the pink a bit of a top up later, I've been bitten by the hair dye bug. Oh dear! Cross your fingers I don't make a huge mess!

    Missing the pink hair in this picture, if I were you I'd get it through the whole head, but my hair is too dark and would take too much work...boo!
