Angry Cats

T-Shirt: River Island
Bag: Bank

A (what feels) rare day off work equals a super comfy outfit, plus the sun is out for bank holiday so I felt like I had to make the effort and go out. A quick trip to the seaside for an ice cream with the family and a wander along the pier was the perfect way to spend this afternoon.

I'm not much of a jeans girl, but I have to admit on the few occasions where I do wear them and dress them down with trainers and a tee, I find myself wondering why I don't so it more often! These Puma Suedes are just so comfy, and surprisingly stylish... I'll be wearing them with my shorts and maxi skirts though out the Summer months as well as with my rolled up skinnies. I was considering getting myself a pair of converse, but dare I say it, are they a little bit common now? I do like them, but it seems as though everyone has a pair... at least these are a little bit different!
Its actually nice to wear something that allows me to act like a child with Elodie once in a while, there's only so much running around I can manage in dresses, tights and boots!

I'm quite a fan of this t-shirt too, I picked it up randomly from the River Island sale... don't ask me why, I'm not a massive cat lover (definitely prefer dogs) and casual tees aren't really my thing, but I am glad I got it. I love the little details of the rolled up sleeves, and the angry cat faces are actually quite cute?!

I hope you've all had a lovely Good Friday and enjoy your easter weekends. I will mostly be eating chocolate and helping my boyfriend prepare to move to Essex for his new job (sad times!)

Mac Costa Chic

Mac lipsticks are raved about here, there and everywhere, and rightly so. If you caught my recent 'Mac Haul' blog post, you will have seen that when I went to Liverpool for FABB, I treated myself to a few bits including two lipsticks.
I went into the shop knowing that I wanted to buy Impassioned, but Costa Chic was a bit of an impulse buy, and thankfully one that I haven't lived to regret - I love it!

This is one of my first delves into the orange lips trend, as I find that I have to be either feeling really brave, or sporting a good tan to pull the look off, however I am finding that this colour really works for my paler skin tone.
Costa Chic is one of Mac's 'frost' finish lipsticks, which means is it pigmented with a shimmery finish when applied. I definitely prefer a slight shine or gloss to the lips rather than a matte finish, as I find that they work better on my lips which are prone to slight dryness, so this is perfect for me... the only thing I wouldn't rave about with this lipstick is that it doesn't last a very long time before I need to reapply. I've never used a frost finish lipstick before, so I am assuming it's the same with all of these lipsticks (correct me if I'm wrong), but it is something I can put up with due to the fact that I love to colour and the formula so much.

This lipstick is highly pigmented in a peachy coral shade, which is a truly unique colour. I find that it applies wonderfully and is a great daytime/nighttime shade. This looks beautiful worn alone, or with a gloss applied on top. I'm going to be getting lots of wear out of this one throughout the Summer!

Have you tried Costa Chic before?
I think it will look great on any skin tone, so would really recommend you at least give it a quick swatch next time you're at a Mac counter!

Spring Layering

Dress: Mango
TShirt: Topshop (direct link)
Coat: Miss Selfridge
Necklace: Topshop c/o Outfit
Tights: Primark
Boots: River Island

As soon as I laid eyes on this dress in Mango, I fell a little bit in love. Initially I thought it was too bare for me (I prefer to be covered up) but after some thinking about how I could wear it, and after reading Lydia's blog post about how she styled a similar dress, I was completely inspired and the dress had to be mine!
I have loved experimenting with different tops underneath from frilly blouses to this simple crop top from Topshop, which I think is my favourite combo, of course with my trusty pink coat ontop. Maybe next time you see this dress I will be rocking it with bare legs and sandals... if the warm weather ever arrives!

I have been off work all this week, and can't quite believe I'm half way through my time off already... time always goes so quickly when you're off doesn't it?! I had so many plans that I haven't even gotten round to thinking about yet. Hopefully I'll get a couple of videos filmed for my YouTube channel on Friday, and tomorrow I'm having a catch up in town with Ray which will probably include a cheeky trip to Primark. I'm on the hunt for a pastel jewelled necklace and I have my fingers crossed super tight that I'll find the monochrome two piece that everyone's after, I neeeed it!

MTV Movie Awards 2014 Best Dressed

Last night was the MTV Movie Awards in LA, and all the stars were out. When it comes to these kind of award shows, I'm generally not interested in who wins what, for me it's all about the outfits!
My three best dressed of the night were Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Jessica Alba.

Ellie kept everything simple with a white dress and black shoes. I love the cut of the dress, it completely flatters her shape and the mixture of fabrics is beautiful. I have to admit, I didn't like her performance outfit though, maybe she should have stuck with this dress all night!

I love how Rita's style is evolving, I used to think of her as a bit of a copycat, but she's come into her how recently and this classic black dress looks amazing on her. I definitely think the 'less is more' rule works for her, as her hair and makeup are always such a statement.

Jessica always looks amazing and oozes the perfect 'California Girl' image. In quite a dressed down red carpet look, the white boob tube and scuba style skirt worked perfectly... Lemon is going to be the colour of 2014 Summer, I can imagine it being everywhere.

Who's outfits did you like best?
