Sometimes I just have nothing to say about an outfit. I hate not typing anything into the post, but sometimes just the photos are enough. Agree? It happens more when I style the same pieces up in multiple outfit posts. I mean, come on, there's only so many things you can say about a jumper and a metallic skirt. They do look good together though, no? Metallic pieces and muted pastel tones are my go to's at the moment. Probably why I love this outfit so much.

Star Print Co-ord - Motel (Old)

Greetings ya'll, I'm glad you've made it back to the second part in my festival style series (see part 1 here).

The Outfit:
If you like skimpy, grunge-inspired, colourful co-ord's, then Motel is your guy. This particular star print beaut is no longer on the website (sad face), but there is a whole array of others that will make you look rad at a festival. I don't think there's really much to say about a co-ord because it's pretty much an outfit in itself, but I've popped on my white pom pom choker and earrings from Claire's (yes, Claires!), to match the white star print. Claires actually have some pretty cool jewellery, among all the tacky kids stuff. I recommend.

The Hair:
Curled with my Lee Stafford chopstick curler. Why can't this be my hair all the time. I like.

The Makeup:
Head back to my first post if you want to know exactly how I stick all the glitter onto my face. I've gone for a silver, gold and blue look, using the Nyx Liquid Suede in Jet Set as my lippie of choice. Never thought I'd wear gold glitter, but I'm diggin it.

The Unitard



How fantastic this this unitard? Or is it called a catsuit? Or both? Whatever it's called, I'm smitten. I've wanted one of these for a while, but at the same time, I've always been a bit scared of them. They cling to every lump tiny lump and bump on your body, so even though you're covered up, it's still a bare all kinda deal. 

This being the case, I thought a black unitard would be the way to go, black being slimming and all. But what really drew me in to this one was the off the should ruffles - so pretty!

Sheer Maxi Shirt - H&M (old)

I'm starting a series on this blog. It's gonna involve short shorts, Dr Martens and a HELLA load of glitter. It's time for festival style. Fuck Christmas, festival season is the most wonderful time of the year. It's hot (well so we pray in England), and the perfect excuse to wear skimpy outfits and cover your elf in shiny things, i.e. face gems and glitter. I've got four festival outfit, hair and makeup looks planned to show ya'll, and I'm hoping to to put together a few more in addition.

The Outfit:
Rainbow crochet and festival just go hand in hand, don't ya think? And when that rainbow crochet comes in the form of a little bralette, I'm all over that shit. I've pair it with this amazing pair of sequin hot pants from PLT, who have the best festival section on the high street right now. Seriously, if you're off to a festival this year, go check it. Thank me later babes. Yes, this outfit is a bit on the skimpier side of things, so I've thrown on a sheer maxi shirt to try and balance it out a bit. Statement necklaces are a timeless festival fashion piece, so my statement choker from Asos Reclaimed Vintage finishes the outfit off perfectly.

The Hair:
I crimped it and tied a bandana round me 'ead, not sure there's much else to say about this? 

The Makeup:
The best bit. The glitter. I used the Nyx Glitter Primer (this stuff is bloody amazing) to stick the glitter in a triangle shape under my eyes, with the help of a concealer brush. The gems are stuck on (forehead and underneath the glitter) with eyelash glue, standard. A bit of blue lippie and liner to finish it off, and you've got a pretty simple and easy festival glitter look!

Summer, Where Art Thou?

In the UK we are well into spring, but it feels further away from summer than ever. It's windy and bitterly cold on my way to work, then I'm sat shivering all day in thr office. No joke, it feels like January again. Ok, I lie, maybe not quite as cold as the depths of winter, but it's bloody chilly. Definitely not spring weather. But something good has to come out of it, right? Yep. I still get to wear my big, cosy jumpers. I mean, I would trade my jumpers in for some heat in a heartbeat, but I can half deal with it for now... 

It's also given me an excuse to make yet another jumper purchase, to add to the overflowing collection. I got this 'thank you' jumper (just wait till you see the back) from the men's section of Urban Outfitters. If your ever looking for an oversized top/jumper, forget women's, go straight to the men's. They are so much bigger, slouchier and comfier. 

My new baby also fits in with my fave SS17 trend atm - pastels. I've feel like I keep mentioning the pastels trend on my blog, but I really do like it. I prefer pastels in the sense of muted colours, rather than your classic baby pinks and blues etc... And I think it goes pretty damn well with my pastel check trousers.

I have wanted a silver metallic skirt for aggggeessss now. This particular one had been in my saved on Asos for at least a month. I'm not the kind of person to keep things in my saved for weeks and weeks, before deciding on whether to actually buy them. I'm more of a spontaneous, straight into the basket and hit pay kinda gal. Not good for my bank balance, but amazing for blog content. Anyway, 'I could die tomorrow, no point in trying to save all my money', I say to myself as I try to justify yet another £100 splurge on Asos...

So, a month later I went back to buy the pretty silver skirt, and it's in the sale for half price - woohoo! Is the moral of this story to keep things in my saved for a few weeks before buying them? Maybe, but I can't imagine that actually happening...

Prettiest jeans paired with the sassiest slogan jumper. Seems like a pretty decent spring outfit to me. I still can't get enough of this jumper, honestly it was made for me.
