I very often get occasions when I have a quick turnaround after getting home from work.  Friday was one of these occasions.  I need an outfit that was easy to plan, easy to dress and looked good.

Enter Missguided!

I’m a huge fan of Missguided, and regularly peruse their site if I’ve got a night out on the horizon and want to update my wardrobe – such amazing choice for great prices!  This jumpsuit was actually purchased last summer, but I’ve worn it a lot as it fits for both winter and summer nights, giving a classic tailored look. I switch up the shoes and accessories I wear with this so I don’t feel like I’m wearing the same outfit every time.

Jumpsuit – Missguided £27.99
Necklace – Primark £4
Belt – Asos £13.99 (similar)
Shoes – Primark £15
Bag – Michael Kors £109 (similar)

Hope you’re all having a lovely Mother’s Day!

What I’m Wearing

Simple post on what I’m wearing today.  It’s my day off from work and I sometimes try to experiment with my makeup a little more as I can usually spend a bit more time on it.  Its these days that I try out new products and if I do like them I will then test them on a full day at work as that gives me a good idea on longevity of a product.

I always go for comfort on a day off, if I actually leave the house I’m usually sporting my A&F Super Skinny Jeans and a slouchy H&M t shirt – I just can’t get enough of them! Today I’ve paired these with my Primark black ankle boots and my faux leather jacket and a plain black pashmina scarf.

Makeup wise I’ve kept it pretty low key on eyes with a super bold red lip.  My all time favourite foundation Clarins Everlasting (review) then just a wash of MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork followed by Benefit They’re Real Mascara on the eyes; Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud and Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang on the lips. It is the brightest glossiest lip product I own I think! This is its first outing so I’m looking forward to comparing it to my other lip products.

Hope you’re all having a good day!

H&M Boots: Head over heels

A short post today showing the love for a most impulse of purchases; these gorgeous H&M shoe boots! I literally saw them and was like: I need those on my feet…now! For £30 I think I’ve had a real bargain!

I wore them last night for my Valentines date with black skinny jeans and a slouchy black sweater. A really simple outfit but I think the boots did the talking!

I’m not going to sit here and say they are comfy – they’re not! – but they do look great! They are higher than they looked when I bought them so definitely not a ‘walking’ ahem, boot. More of a ‘dinner and cocktails sitting down and being chauffeured home’ boot.

They will need some breaking in, as the zip section at the back slightly rubbed my ankle, but what shoes are comfy on first wear! They’re a suede-like material which looks great quality and I love the gold hard wear to just break up the black a little. I really loved wearing them and they’re a great alternative for me as I always wear court shoe type heels for evenings out, but these kind of have a casual edge while still giving me the confidence that heels do!

I’ve never bought shoes or boots from H&M so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw these hiding on a top shelf! I do think they are upping their game in the shoe department though, the store I went in seems to be extending their footwear offerings all the time! Winner!

I’m just wondering how else I could style these boots. I’m not hugely adventurous as I feel so at home with my skinny jeans and blouses or nice sweaters! If you’ve got any suggestions leave them below!

What do you think?

OOTD #2

Afternoon all! I know I’ve already posted my Foundation Diaries intro today but I did tweet about and OOTD I was hoping to get up yesterday and just didn’t have time, so here it is!

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!

OOTD #1

This is my first outfit of the day! Yay for me! I have wanted to do a few of these but I’m rarely at home when someone can take my picture, so I’ve had to improvise with this and find ways to take my own picture without a timer camera!

The outfit is very much high street, and some/most are items that feature in my haul post from earlier this week. I don’t get chance to do many of these, especially as I spend most of my time in a uniform for work (nothing new about black trousers and a white T-shirt!), but I bought a few things at the weekend and I really wanted to try them out and here is my first attempt! I’ve taken a leaf out of Barbara’s (from The Persian Babe) book and gone for some slightly larger sizes in some items so that I’ve got some oversized jumpers to snuggle in over the winter!
