Pink Velvet Bralette - H&M (not on site)

I'm going away to Berlin and then Amsterdam on Wednesday, and this is one of the outfits I'll be taking for a night out. Not gonna lie, will most probs be swapping out the chunky sandals for a pair of flatforms or black chunky heels. This is why I love versatile outfits like this velvet bralette and metallic skirt combo - they are so easy to transform from day to night.

Festival Outfits, Hair and Makeup | Part 5

So this is my fifth and final post in this little series. Thought I would go all out with this one.


The Outfit
Definitely one for the warmer weather, I'll probably be more likely to be sporting this little bralette and shorts combo at a festival somewhere hot like Croatia. Anyone else really want to go to Hideout??? Both of these pieces are from Pretty Little Thing, honestly their festival shop is the best on the high street this year.

The Makeup
I'm so glad shops other than The Gypsy Shrine have started selling these all in one face gems now. Last year I had SUCH trouble finding any. Obvs you can't stick these all on individually, you'll be there all day. To match the face gems, I've created a, what I like to call, three glitter look. But more interested than just using one type. I've stuck it all on using the NYX Glitter Primer which is honestly amazing.

The Hair
A gone for a festival classic of recent times - space buns. I really need to give glitter roots a go, but tbh I just cba with the removal of it. Maybe one day...

Oversized Flannel/Plaid Shirt - Vintage
Ripped Sequin Mom Jeans - Liquor N Poker
Chunky Sandals - Bershka (no longer on site)
Bralette - Primark

A few snaps from Saturday in Central. Good blog photo locations are scarce round where I live (honestly, the best spot I've found is in this random car park, so I think that says it all...), so I also make sure to get some outfit pics whenever I'm in Central for anything other than work. 

I've got a few vintage flannel shirts in my wardrobe, but I never seem to gravitate towards them any more. I dunno if it's cos I'm getting bored of wearing them, but I thought I would try and style it slightly differently to normal. I've done the classic, tie up the front' trick, but I've attempted to make it a bit more unique by making it low cut and having it sit off my shoulders. Let me tell you something, when you make something off the shoulder, that is not meant to be off the shoulder, it doesn't stay there very well. I didn't want any awk nip slip situations, so I've popped on a cute bralette underneath.

The Outfit

This is by far my favourite outfit in this series so far. It's very 70's reminiscent with the crochet and flared trousers, which I think we can all agree, is very fitting for the festy season. Tbf, I would probably where this outfit on a really hot day, and definitely on holiday. Obvs minus all the the glitter and gems.

The Makeup

I've gone for something slightly different to what I would usually do. I've seen a lot of festival looks created with eyeliner dots and lines, and thought I would share my own take on this. I've gone a bit OTT with the dots, but I'm digging it. 

The Hair

Classic half up half down, can't really go wrong. I actually plaited the ponytail, wrap it round itself and clipped it down. Then I pulled the plait to loosen it up and create I bigger bun. I'm liking the result. My hair is quite fine, and I don't have much of it, so I'm always looking for little hacks to make it look a bit thicker.

Extreme Rips & Acid Wash

Fluffy Earrings - Topshop (not on site)

Much to the dismay of my bank balance, a Missguided shop opened up near me on Saturday. Safe to say I spent a tad too much. I couldn't help myself though. If you were there, you'd understand Missguided clothes look so much nicer irl, the website doesn't do them all justice. It was probably a blessing in disguise how rammed the shop was, cos I was not in the mood to be fighting through crowds of girls to look at all the clothes properly. Instead I quickly grabbed a few bits and headed straight to the till to burn my bank card. 

One of my impulse purchases was these insane in the membrane pair of mom jeans. I can't stop buying statement jeans at the moment. I need to stop. No lie, my wardrobe is full of flower embroidered, sequin covered, extreme ripped jeans, yet I always seem to gravitate towards black skinnies or trackie bottoms. And I still buy more.I can't be stopped. I couldn't not buy this pair though. My justification is that I don't have a pair of acid wash/bleached jeans, and these kind of take that to the extreme. Just what I like, a nice OTT statement piece. I've styled them with my pink velvet cropped cami, also from Missguided. It is made from the softest velvet I have ever felt in my life. Yes, it's that soft.

My Perfect Summer Outfit

Guess who got a new lens! I finally feel like a proper blogger now I have multiple lenses to choose from... jokes, but after three years of doing this thang, I can finally achieve the photo quality that I have desired for so long. That background blur though...

Moving onto the outfit, I picked up this metallic sheer dress from Missguided last week. It's the perfect piece for festivals, chucking over your bikini at the beach, or just for everyday wear when it's boiling hot. Missguided had a few of these dresses in different colours and designs, but I went for the cold shoulder one cos I'm still lovin that look. 

I need to give these chunky sandals a proper mention in this post, because they for sure deserve it. Yes, they're pretty ugly. Granddad sandals 2.0. I wanted a chunky pair like this; I'm not really into completely flat sandals. They are ugly but in a cool way. But the main reason I wanted to talk about them is because of how goddamn comfy they are. When buying them I feared the straps would rub, but none of that. They are really squidgy and comfy, and mold to your feet. I'm going to Amsterdam, Berlin and Barcalona this summer, so I wanted a really comfy pair that I would be ok doing a lot of walking in. These definitely live up to my high expectations. Also, they look killer with the dress.

Embroidered Bralette - Primark
Chunky Strappy Heels - New Look (old)

Is it acceptable to wear just a bra out if it's underneath a mesh top? When the bra is as pretty as this Primark one, I'm gonna go with hell yeah. Honestly, this is way to pretty not to show off, and throwing a sheer top on over it, makes it look like an actual outfit, not like I've half dressed myself.

Festival Outfits, Hair and Makeup | Part 3

The Outfit

I'm calling this outfit 'grunge meets mermaid'. The body is very mermiad-esque, with the glitter scale print, and I've added even more mermaid vibes with a metallic skirt. The body is completely sheer and completely backless, which means wearing a little top/bralette underneath is out of the question. I've opted for glittery nipple pasties, which I think look rad paired with the body, but not sure I'd be brave enough to wear this combo anywhere but a festival!

The Makeup

I feel like I've gone pretty basic with the makeup in this one.  I've created the standard black cat eye and red lip, and simply added The Gypsy Shrine Unicorn All In One face gems. I've gone ahead and stuck the little single gems next to the out corner of my eyes. Sparkle eyes - cute!

The Hair

Just like in my previous festival outfit, I've simply used the Lee Stafford Chopstick Curler to give myself luscious curly locks.
