the joy of the jumpsuit

Zara black jumpsuit, Mango perspex sandals and 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli medium burgundy bag

This jumpsuit is one of those pieces which after wearing it a few times, you realise it's so perfect you wish you'd bought two. It's that elusive combination of smart yet comfortable and versatile yet standout. Whenever I'm travelling with work I'll always wear this on the last day, because it's ideal workwear but still comfortable enough to fly home in. Paired with my new absolute favourite Perspex strap shoes - which are also beautiful yet supremely comfortable - it's pretty much my go-to outfit in this warm weather.

bronzed make-up tutorial

Bronzed make-up tutorial

In case you haven't figured it out, I went on holiday to Mexico recently (what, you knew?!) Anyway, I try not to tan my face because I don't want any more wrinkles/sagging than I already have (the struggle is real post-25, my friends). So when I get back I inevitably have a paler face than body and need to use make-up to rectify this.

frill seeker

Zara black frilled top, Whistles Fairhope sandals and Topshop Boutique leather croc skirt

I would never have thought I'd wear a top with frill sleeves. I think I retired my last remnant of ruffles about five years ago, if not longer. Since then it's been clean lines and simple cuts all the way in my wardrobe. But we all know that you can never say never when it comes to fashion. I mostly blame Ellery for bringing back oversized proportions and making mega sleeves and frilled layers suddenly seem cool again. This has now filtered down to the high street and Zara for one is full to the brim with all things frilly right now.

black and navy

& Other Stories black dress, Larsson & Jennings silver Lugano watch and Saint Laurent black shopper

I hate rules for the sake of rules in fashion. Saying you shouldn't put black with navy is the worst one, in my opinion. I mean, why not? Who invented that? I absolutely love black with navy. The navy somehow softens the harshness of the black, while the black makes the navy just that little more classic.

everyday make-up tutorial

So I thought I'd try something new: a make-up tutorial video. I'm not sure why; maybe I was in a blog rut and lacking a little inspiration. Maybe I thought that my blog can sometimes be a little impersonal, and I wanted to show you a little bit more about who I am. I also just really like watching make-up tutorials myself. So, I thought I'd give it a go.

I've never done any kind of a video before save a snippet or two on my Instastories, so this was quite a strange experience for me, and I felt quite vulnerable putting my make-up free face out there for everyone to see (eek). But I really enjoyed making it, and my hope is that one or two people will enjoy watching it.

So please let me know what you think (unless it's eugh, don't show us your make-up free face again!) Any constructive feedback welcomed. It may be a one-off, or I may decide to do some more. Anyway, if you do take the time to watch it - thank you so much and I hope you enjoy! All the products are linked below.
