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.

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.

Muted Pastels and Metallics | My Go To Spring Outfit

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!
