Spring/Summer 2016: What I Am Wearing

 

Little Black Dress: Dream Date Style Challenge

The lovely people from Daily Look contacted me asking me if I would like to put together an outfit using one of their little black dresses for a perfect date outfit – which sounded like a great idea for a fashion post, as I haven’t put an outfit together for a while and Valentines Day is coming up – so definitely a great time for some inspiration!
I chose this maxi dress because it is exactly what I would personally wear on a date. A plain long black dress can look rather elegant if you pair it with the right accessories. You can dress it up or down – either way. With this look, I decided to go for the more traditional romantic colour for the accessories, which is red. Black and red go really well together and perfect for a date night.
A stylish red shawl, blazer or bolero would look stunning with an LBD. As this dress is sleeveless, for me personally, I would like some coverage over the shoulders.
Because I have paired a red bolero on the top, I thought the outfit would look great if the top and bottom matched, so a rather lovely pair of classy red heels works well.
I could have went for a red clutch bag, but for some reason, the outfit felt too red for me. I wanted the bag to match the dress, instead of every single accessory being red. I think a simple black clutch works well with a black dress.
With this outfit, the red bolero would be a statement piece as well as the length of the dress – so I decided not to add too much jewellery. A simple red stone necklace and earring set from Claire’s just makes this look elegant and charming.
To complete the look, a dark red lipstick.

Spring Outfit 2014

I love Spring! Spring for me this year is very different to last year. My style has changed into a more glamourous and a more mature look. My birthday is during Spring so I thought as it is my 21st this year, I would spice up my style a bit!

Winter Favourites 2014

Well, it is March which means Winter is over and Spring is here! Below are some of the things I have loved from Winter.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – This sponge is absolutely amazing and I have been using it all winter. It makes my foundation go on so smoothly and flawlessly. Absolutely wonderful – and definitely lives up to its name! Image

Benefit POREfessional Primer – This primer is definitely one of my winter favourites this year. Check out my full review on it right here if you haven’t already, which pretty much sums up my love for it.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Since Naked 3 came out, I have realised I have not even bought Naked 2 yet – so I decided to just buy it as I have wanted it for a long time. I love it. I have been using YDK a lot. However, I will be buying Naked 3 very soon.

Demi Lovato: 365 Days a Year – Staying Strong – I bought this book at the end of 2013 and I thought it would make sense to start reading it from the 1st of January. The layout of this book is interesting. Each individual page is dedicated to one day of the year until 31st of December. So, I am reading it the way it should be read. Every morning, I wake up and read a quote from that book – it helps me be more positive and think about each thoughtful quote and act on it. I highly recommend this book if you are going through a hard time.

ImageTiesto – Red Lights – I have loved Tiesto for years and I was about to see him live with Calvin Harris in December but I had to miss that gig unfortunately as I was not well. I have been really loving his new song ‘Red Lights’ – a really happy song and I love listening to it on the tube!

ImageBBC Get In Event – On February 11th, I went to the BBC Get In Event held by BBC Academy. I went to the London event at New Broadcasting House. As I am in my third year at university and thinking about graduate schemes and careers, I felt like I needed some advice directly from the BBC on how to get in and so this event was very useful for the application of the Production Talent Pool – which opens next week. I met some really nice people and got some fantastic advice from Simon Wright – BBC’s Talent Executive and Don Kong –  BBC Academy’s Programme Coordinator.  We did some group work – we had to develop a BBC programme idea and pitch it to them, which was very helpful for the application. Very much enjoyed that day and it is always lovely to be back at BH.
