I mentioned before that I am one of those girls that at the first signs of sun – wacks out the RayBan’s, the short shorts (sorry dad), the wedged heels, the crop tops – oh, the 1990’s called by the way girls, they want their style back – you get the gist…well, hopefully you do. If you don’t, what I’m basically trying to say is that my style goes from “I’m seconds away from getting frostbite” to “get me to a beach bitch” quicker than you can say ‘make the most of it’. Which is where my
laziness, lack of ability to bash out a blog post in an hour or so comes into play. Hence, the slightly summery/spring outfit being posted on a completely s**t and windy day. No point in sugar coating things eh?…
Pastel colours, check. Linen Blazer, check. Wedge heels, check. Moody/vacant/”let’s not look at the camera to attempt to make this look natural” pose ü ü ü
Now, these jeans. I am, without a doubt, the least ‘arty’ person you will ever come across in your life. Managing to draw a stick man is a genuine achievement for me – I know, that tragic – so when I decided on a whim to
rip the shit out of D.I.Y my jeans up a bit…I wasn’t the most confident in how they’d turn out.
I’ll leave the arty stuff to Neil Buchanan in the future (You know, the guy from Art Attack? If you don’t know what Art attack is then quite frankly…you haven’t lived!)
Another new edition to my wardrobe/floor/any pointy things that I can chuck clothes, accessories and what not over, is the ‘statement necklace’ – tell me I’m not the only one that feels like a bit of a knob using that phrase? No, just me then… – below. I bought this necklace because I just felt like the outfit was a little…’beige’ without it. You know, a bit boring, a bit vanilla, the Leona Lewis of outfits. (Soz Le Lew!) And, despite owning practically no bling whatsoever, I actually really like it. A good old ‘statement necklace’ – yep, still feel like a knob – really does dress up an outfit. Who’d have known? Well, clearly everybody apart from 10 years too late Ellie!

Wedges: Primark (yeah…you knew I wasn’t going to be able to make it through a post without getting a primark item in there somewhere
Necklace: Accessorize (regressing to my primary school days with one purchase)
The weather in the UK has typically turned
shit shocking again – oh god, I’m turning into one of those boring people that only talk about the weather, the next thing you know I’ll be watching Countdown – so as I’m not getting any natural sun, I may have to finally admit that despite being olive skinned, I do occasionally delve into the magic bottle of fakeness (we all know that’s my ‘subtle’ way of saying fake tan) and I need your recommendations girls!! I’m currently a Xen Tan Dark lotion devotee, which I do absolutely love, but the natural experimenter – is that even a real word? – in me needs to try something new. I’m considering the Xen Tan Moroccan tan as I love the colour, smells etc. of Xen Tan but just wish the lotion sunk in a bit quicker. Or potentially the St Tropez dark mousse? Has anyone tried any of those, written any reviews? If so, please leave your links – or anybody else’s – in the comments below. After all, who knows better than beauty bloggers?…my thoughts exactly 🙂
