{top = new look, necklace = primark, skirt = primark, jacket = miss selfridge, bag = mango}
The past few weeks have been really manic and I haven't had much time to myself. Even more crucially, I haven't had any time at all to go shopping - crazy I know! Although I have made myself a list for the next time I go out, and there's some hell ass expensive things on there that I really want, I don't know whether I'll buy them because I just can't justify spending ridiculous amounts of money on something so trivial, when it can be put towards something worthwhile. And no, that something worthwhile isn't shoes.
Here I'm wearing my favourite jacket from Miss Selfridge. Its so snuggly and warm and can either be dressed up or dressed down, depending on how I feel. I've teamed it here with a basic white tee and a midi skirt that's waaaaay too big for me because I picked up the wrong size in the shop and didn't return it. Well done Liv.
I'm also wearing a chunky POW! necklace - I thought it was so cool in good old Primani and just couldn't resist adding it to my basket, along with too many other things. Little things like that really make me happy - it sounds silly but when you look at something funny or motivational it makes you feel better, Zoe has her 'yes' bracelet to remind her to say yes more and I have something similar for other reasons, it'd be nice to know whether other people had little bits of jewellery that made them happy.
I also tried red lipstick! God I was worried on how this one was going to turn out. Beauties such as Olivia over at What Olivia Did pull it off so effortlessly, but normal people like me kinda... don't. The shade I used was by Natural Collection, shade red? It probably has a proper name but I have no idea where it says so you'll have to do a Google search if you really want to know haha. I don't think the red lips turned out that badly, but it won't be a look I'll be sporting every day of the week.
What beauty looks scare you?

Love Olivia x
