Crazy about Coral





So sorry it's been so long since my last outfit post. I planned on posting yesterday but I've been kinda sick since I got back from New York and I was feeling far too gross to get all dressed up and take pictures of myself. Speaking of which, I have developed a new wardrobe crisis. I have no problem remixing new outfits for days when I want to update my blog and come up with something new, but on the days when I'm just dressing for a normal day I am completely stuck! I ended up going through all my outfits on LookBook yesterday and noting down a list of go-to outfits!



Well here is the first of my new wardrobe additions. I was desperate for a hip-length red cardigan and as I've probably told you before, shopping here in Duluth isn't too great, so my Mum got me this gorgeous Red Herring cardigan from home and brought it over last week. I absolutely love the colour and the style and will probably be wearing it with everything over the next few months! I've remixed this playsuit quite a few times now and I'm looking forward to having some more fun with it. It was actually the item shown in my Delightful Dozen feature. The other new thing I wanted to show you was my new lipstick! We spent our last day in New York just killing time, so I took a trip to both MAC and Sephora to get some new makeup. I have some gorgeous coral eyeshadows to show you, but this is my new coral lipstick. I absolutely adore it. Coral is my new absolute favourite colour- not too pink, not too orange, not too red. It's a perfect lip colour because it's just a little more subtle than red.



playsuit- primark
cardigan- debenhams
shoes- target
necklace- forever 21


I am  very jealous of what I heard is gorgeous weather jack home. It's getting nice here in Duluth, and although we were told to expect one of the worst blizzards in decades on Tuesday, it's been pretty snow-free. In fact, it was very strange when I got back home from New York and so much of the snow had melted! I really want to weather to get nice soon because I'm getting horribly aware of how little time I have left here and I am trying to make the most of every single minute.


I was really happy this morning when I woke up because it was the first day I haven't felt ill! I managed to go to the gym this morning which made me feel a ton better, and I felt much more in the mood to dress up and take pictures. I took these a lot earlier than I normally do and the sun was pretty low in the sky so they're not my favourites. The lighting was really hard to work with!


Oh and two last final things. One is, as you might remember, I planned on losing 10 pounds by my birthday. Well, despite getting fed up at 8 and decided that the last 2 pounds really didn't matter and letting myself go a bit in New York, I have finally lost all 10. Yay :]]
Secondly, I am trying to get 200 followers by my birthday next Wednesday so if you have any friends who might be interested in following me, please let them know. </shamelessselfpromotion>
Well, I'd better get back to my second home- the library! Have a great day!
