OOTD: Pink In Pleats

It's finally summer here in England, well on and off anyways. We had a bit of a heatwave recently when i took these photos. But it seems to have rained ever since - typical. I spoke too soon. I do get excited when the sun comes out so i can wear all the beautiful pastel, light, summery colours. Don't get me wrong most of my wardrobe is black or grey but, sometimes it's good to brighten up a bit, get them freshly painted toenails out and flash a bit of flesh. 

I seen this skirt in the Primark window display on my trip to Edinburgh and instantly i wanted it. So i hunted it down and was lucky to find it my size. This is a perfectly elegant, summer skirt to go with this cream cami from River Island. I love these cami's from RI with adjustable straps so you can make sure they fit perfectly. I got this last summer because i loved the front detail. But there is some similar ones online now.

Keeping it simple... 

Cami - River Island (similar here)
Skirt - Primark 
Shoes - Kurt Geiger (similar here & here)

And on the face... 

Eyeshadow - Mac 'Expensive Pink' (lid) - alternative is Sleeks 'Rose Gold' blusher. Mac 'Brown Down' (crease).
Eyebrows - Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in 'Stare'.
Contour - Sleek Face Form Palette in Medium (I have a brand new one to sell if anyone is interested!)
Lips - MUA Luxe Lip Lacquer 'Tranquility'.

Anyway,  i thought i'd share this summer outfit with you because,  i really loved it.

What are your favourite summer colours? Have you joined the pleat trend? 



  1. Love the color of the makeup and skirt!
