Outfit of the Day: Regal Purple

I had a bit of a lull in the exams early last week, and took advantage of it by getting dressed up! The long sunny evenings are so beautiful in Oxford, so we headed down to Oxford Castle to take a few pics of my new dress, thanks to FD Avenue!  Continue reading

Autumn Lust List! (Yes, Early)

c600x434

Well, the sun appears to have given up for August, and I’m sat in the kitchen watching the drizzle and feeling ready for autumn. So here’s what I’m craving for the day when I’m allowed to wear dark colours and boots again!

This lace dress from Boohoo would be perfect for when it gets too cold for my favourite lace summer dress (see it in two colours here), and it’s only £20! I’m imagining it with black tights and gold flats for a library day, or high heels for a party.

I’ve seen these boots in person in New Look, and they’re much much redder than the picture shows. The heel is a good height, and these would look really lovely with grey skinny jeans. At £25, they’re not exactly expensive, but a bit much for an impulse purchase… I don’t know if they quite fit my style, but I do think they’re lovely.

I really love these earrings from New Look – I like slightly more dramatic jewellery in autumn and winter, and think these would be very cute, and an easy buy at £6.99.

Ojon, oh Ojon. How long have I been lusting after this stripy hair oil? The Rare Blend Oil is pretty pricey, at £30, but it smells incredible and seems to be a bit of a wonder oil, with excellent reviews.

With autumn comes autumn term, and with term comes walking past Lush every day. It’s going to be hard to resist this gorgeous shimmery taupe cream eyeshadow, Sophisticated. I think £14 is a bit much for one colour, but the formula of these is great.

And last but not least, I’ll have run out of my day cream by the start of term, and while I like it, I’m up for a change. I love the smell of the Boots Botanics All Bright range, and my skin seems to like it, so I might well try this one. It’s £4.99, which is about standard for a high street day cream, but is often on sale – it’s currently £3.33!

Are you feeling autumnal yet? What are you looking forward to most about the end of summer?

Outfit of the Day: 4th and 5th of June

So you know how sometimes you absolutely fall in love with something and have to collect all its variations?

So you know I’ve been looking for a little mint dress all year?

So you know I bought a little white lace dress last week?

Well, I might have been back to Primark to buy it in mint green.

Which might have inspired a green and white mirror-image outfit post for today. There’s a row of pastel-coloured houses on a street near the centre of Oxford, so we headed there, and were lucky to find a mint green and white house next to each other!
