Now for the bag which is another item that has found its way deep, deep into my heart! As you all know, I’m a hugeeeeeee Ted Baker fan. Every single season, their accessories never fail to leave me lusting after them. They have just got it so, so right. Pastel coloured, structured bags, often with a cute little bow detail and always rose gold hardware- it’s just a total dream. And this bag has been the perfect Summer accessory! Perfectly matching the cami, this dreamy bluish-grey colour is just so versatile, I’ve been able to match it with absolutely everything. The stunning, subtly glamorous, rose gold chain strap makes it the perfect “day to night” accessory, and can be tucked away into the bag turning it into a gorgeous clutch. It’s so pretty and elegant, and totally completes and outfit giving it a little bit more “sparkle”.
Now, these adorable little sandals from Faith at Asos, have barely left my feet this month. They are so simple and minimal, and yet so many people have noticed them and complimented them! They are a gorgeous pale nude faux suede fabric, (which can get a little dirty so beware!), and the cute little scallop edge detail and ankle strap are so, so on trend, that although they are only simple, they look so stylish. And of course they go with ABSOLUTELY everything, so at £25 they are beyond worth it!
Of course I always keep it simple with accessories, sticking to my Pandora bracelet and Tiffany necklace, although I did find a really gorgeous little bracelet in Accessorize on sale which I’ve been wearing- totally forgot to get a picture of it but it just reminded me of how damn PRETTY and dainty the jewellery is in Accessorize, and it was nice to add something new to my wrist now and then! And of course I’ve been wearing my beloved Aldo sunglasses, although they’ve now sadly broken so I’m on the hunt for some replacements. I’m thinking of maybe treating myself to some Rayban’s at Duty Free this Summer, but shhhhh.
Makeup wise, I’ve been keeping it pretty simple, as the temperature has risen a lot and London is so hot and sticky and heavy makeup will literally melt off my face. For my base I’ve been loving the L’oreal Cushion foundation, as it is a gorgeous sheer yet buildable coverage which is perfect for this weather, and also has the nicest dewy sheen. For highlight I’ve been using my Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In a Palette highlighter, for a beautiful champagne glow. And on my lips I cannot stop reaching for the Elizabeth Arden Sunset Kiss Lip Gloss– it has the most stunning rose golden colour, and transforms any lipstick into a work of art, but also looks great on it’s own. Fragrance wise, I have been utterly ADDICTED to the Giorgio Armani, Prive Pivoine Suzhou fragrance. It is probably the sexiest “fresh floral” scent I have ever experienced! It captures the beautiful scent of the Japanese Peony, and is incredible bright yet musky and spicy at the same time. Basically, it is indescribably stunning, although it comes at a hefty price tag! And for my hair, is has pretty much stayed in a messy topknot the whole month, as the heat and humidity of the city does not do kind things to my hair! But I really like the effortless, cute look of a messy bun, and it’s also nice to not have a sweaty back under a blanket of thick hair!
So that’s it for this months Style Diary! I hope you enjoyed it and I pray you can forgive me for my lack of posts. I cannot wait for you to see the new design, and to really get stuck in, although I do have a few posts planned for before that, so keep your eyes peeled and thank you again for all of your lovely comments and support, it means the world as always.
Lots of love!
