What I Wore: A Chilly But Sunny Afternoon.

Separating this dress and me this summer is going to be nigh on impossible. It’s my perfect dress. It’s a gorgeous deep blue, it sits just below the knee, it cinches me in at the waist and it’s got the perfect width straps. I honestly think if I could have this dress in a bunch of different colours I’d be sorted for the summertime and I’d be a very happy Jennie.

Dress: ASOS.
Trench Coat: Primark.
Earrings: George at Asda.
Nail Polish: Essie Mint Candy Apple.

For some reason the sunshine has disappeared for the time being in my little part of England so I’ve dug out my trusty trench coat, which manages to look good over any outfit! This coat is probably my favourite Primark purchase because it fits so well and I can’t have paid more than £13 for it. Occasionally some little gems pop up in Primark, you just have to be there at the right time to grab yourself a bargain!

Base: Oilatum moisturiser, MAC Face & Body foundation, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer & Beauty Without Cruelty loose translucent powder.
Eyes: MAC Vintage Selection Paint Pot, The Body Shop eye shadow trio & Collection 2000 Big Fake mascara.
Cheeks: NARS Douceur powder blush.
Lips: Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick & Eyes Lips Face Daring mineral lipgloss.

I’m kicking myself for not purchasing a back up of Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick because I’m head over heels in love with the colour. I’m sure there’s a good dupe out there though and I’m determined to find it!

Hopefully my outfit posts from now on will have much better lighting since my new room is much bigger and brighter. These pictures have been lingering on my hard drive for a little while now and I'm not sure why I never managed to post them earlier. I’m excited for the super warm weather to arrive so I can explore the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. I know that you should never compare yourself to anyone else but I just adore fashion blogs who have lots of beautiful pictures in gorgeous locations and I wish I could be at least half as glamorous as they always look! I'm bringing my boyfriend along to take some photographs for me and hopefully he'll use his photography talents to make me look pretty!

How are you lovelies? Are you having a nice weekend?
xoxo

Hope you're settling into life up north well, must be so nice to be so close to your boyfriend after living far away for so long.

  39. Very pretty!
    Does the NARS blush have an imprint in it? If it is, it is fake :/ Did you buy it on eBay?
    NARS blushes do not have "NARS" imprinted in the powder - they come with a plastic overlay with "NARS" printed on it.

  40. @Pink Lemonade Loves - Nope, I don't buy make up from ebay. The pictures of Douceur on Temptalia also have an imprint on. It was a limited edition blusher so I think that may be why.
