My wardrobe generally consists of black, black, a little more black, some odd grey, white and beige. And then some more black. Shall I say black once more and maybe in italics just to emphasise that fact? Black!
being a boring bitch going for the more “basic” look, what I do love, is to pair this with a statement item; be it a shoe, be it a bag, a statement coat… you get the drift. All black ehhrthing with a side order of a brighter/more standout piece is my favourite look to go for, and that’s exactly what I’ll be sporting in today’s post.
My “standout item” comes courtesy of Linzi who I have raved about constantly because not only do they have all the options when it comes to styles, colours, prints etc. but they’re also ridiculously affordable considering the quality too. And Linzi girl, you done so, so good with this pair!
Shoes that I refuse to take off because that are that pretty: Linzi*
Leather trousers that have also adorned my body 24/7 lately: River Island (similar here)
Oversized shirt: ASOS
That leather jacket that I’m still wearing to death: Stradivarius
So, as I got sent those gorgeous shoes, I saved myself some money. [insert hand clapping emoji here] Which obviously means it goes straight into the wedding fund, right? Erm… wrong. I took this as the perfect opportunity to head to Boots and haul like a mad woman because I’m a blogger, and that’s just what I do, and erm… YOLO!*
*P.S I have such a love/hate relationship with “yolo”, a
f**king seriously annoying word, but also an amazing excuse that totally justifies doing anything. #Winning!
Max Factor Colour Intensifying balm, Sumptuous candy – So, I purchased this a couple of days ago and it is already my new favourite makeup product. What I love about this is that it actually packs a punch moisturisation-wise, but also deposits a nice amount of pigmentation. You go
Glen Coco Max Factor! Sumptuous Candy is just one of those bubble gum/baby pink shades… sheer enough for everyday, but bright enough to lift the face. (Which the inner Casper the ghost in me loves).
Collection lasting perfection concealer – This was a repurchase after using it years ago – and totally forgetting about it #ShitBloggerSays – For me, there is no concealer that rivals the coverage and lasting power of this bad boy. An incredible concealer, but the best bit of all? It costs £4.19 (currently reduced to £3.99 at Boots, linked above) Thank me later…
So, that brings my little ode/”Dear Linzi, I love you so much, Sincerely Elle” rave to an end. I feel like I should point out that I am not sponsored by Linzi, I am not a brand ambassedor (although I would absolutely love to be) I just genuinely love their shoes. Affordable, well made and a ton of options.
