The nights are getting lighter, the days are getting warmer. Time to get sleeveless and fearless.
I spent many a year suffering under sleeves in hot summers. No more!
Doing the job I do I don’t opportunity to dress up and often feel so tired that on days off I just want something casual to wear to run errands.
I picked up this juicy little number
from my local New Look in the Inspire section. It’s light and comfortable. There’s a decent amount of room under the arms but it doesn’t bag.
The design is so cute and colourful and I don’t have to compromise my comfort.
I teamed it with a denim mini skirt, again from New Look (an eBay find. Apparently denim mini skirts are impossible to find.)
I did splash a little femme on this and treated my lips to some MUA Luxe Lip Laquer in Reckless.
I love these so much I bought another two. Goes on as a gloss and dries to matte. The colour is a deeper red than what I’d typically wear but the colour is rich and gorgeous. It has great lasting power although does need a re-application after a meal.
Life has a way of getting in the way of things, not to mention awful weather. So after forgetting my camera on my trip home for Christmas and the typical British winter weather battering my door I’ve been able to have a break from my hiatus with a little break in the rain.
Like many people I did all of my Christmas shopping online and while looking for gifts for my nearest and dearest I ended up finding more for myself. Good old eBay!
It’s a lovely, soft knitted affair with very vivid red hearts scattered across. It’s very warm and has been a life saver, especially when visiting home for Christmas in the wilds of the North!
If I had to give it some critisim I would say that it sometimes feels quite short in length. As I’m a busty gal it can ride up a bit but nothing that hinders comfort.
I teamed it with my trusty jersey mini skirt from Asos, leggings from Evans and my Doc Martin boots. As the print is quite busy and eye-catching I wanted to keep it simple and swapped accessories for a splash of red lipstick, courtesy of MAC’s Ruby Woo.
