Have got a little outfit post for you today….
I wanted to bust the myth that you can’t wear black if it’s
a) a boiling hot summer day, and
b) if you’ve got pale skin.
So here goes!
I went for an all black outfit today and felt great in it! Think the black made me look really tanned, and added some extra bronzer to my makeup for a summer glow. I’m increasingly finding myself more and more drawn to black when I’m shopping, so my wardrobe is creeping into a hoard of monochrome! It’s such a slimming and easy to wear colour, that I think it’s great for all four season…. just make sure you add something fun too and don’t become too plain – let’s have fun with fashion!
My top is a knitted 90s Kookai handed down from my Mum – how things have come back in a circle eh!?
Then the shorts are a lazer cut silky feel from Waggy Tails charity shop (on the sale rack!).
These boots were reduced in Primark to just £2 – what a find! My bag is fake Givenchy from Thailand, and the giant hollow bangles are from the Miss Selfridge sale.
Knitted Kookai top – Free (hand-me-down)
Laser-cut shorts – £1.75 – Waggy Tails charity shop, Ashley Road, Poole
Metal bangles – £2 – Miss Selfridge sale
Silver ankle boots – £2 – Primark sale
Givenchy handbag – £11 – Thailand market
I opted for a fresh faced, glowy summer makeup, using a Bobbi Brown cream blush to avoid looking too powdered, a dash of highlighting Benefit Sun Beam, and a Clinique subtle lipstick. Hope you like it!
