You're So Last Summer




This outfit was the kind of thing I lived in last summer. Especially these socks and shoes. They just remind me of last year. This outfit in particular from May 2010. Including this nude top and nude skirt was an unusual choice for my 30 for 30 pieces and this is the first time I've worn either of them. I was super into nude last summer, but I guess I haven't worn it so much this year. I also made a bit of a strange choice including these shoes. I guess I made a couple of errors in judgement regarding my 30 for 30 pieces. I've been looking back over my picks a lot lately and will be writing about them (and what I would have done differently) when the challenge is over.




One thing I really wanted to show you today was my makeup. I haven't really developed the talent for photographing makeup (or for makeup itself!!) but I thought it looked pretty good today.

I used the maybelline perfect pastels quad which is a really lovely pallette. It's a light seafoam green base, a pinky-lilac lid colour, a purple crease colour and a dark green liner. You can't see it too well on the pictures but I thought it looked great!!

I've had a really great day today. I got up and worked out and go on with some articles, then I hung out with my friend Kayleigh all day. I hadn't seen her properly since I've been home so we had a good catch up with pizza, Diet Coke and Sex and the City. Then this evening I went for a pub tea with my dad. Bean burger and a white wine spritzer was the order of the day. Pretty great day as far as I'm concerned!!
 

Wish I had more interesting stuff to say, but alas, by life is not super-exciting at the moment. Plus I have work tomorrow at 8am so it's gonna be an early night for me. Hope you're all having a great day!!

  3. I'm picking out items for a 15 for 15 that I'm doing solo... I keep finding myself looking at things I've picked and thinking, "Really? Does this go with anything else?!" Ahh, it's so hard, but I think you've done a pretty good job so far. :] I'm really nervous about trying it, even though I'm only doing half (15 instead of 30)!

    I really love this outfit. I've never been into nude stuff before I'm so pale anyway :] but I might have to find something in a light nude color to try out. Also I was at H&M yesterday and I almost bought a three pack of animal print ankle socks that reminded me of you! ha ha :]

    Also, you look really skinny in all these pictures, in a good way of course. :]

  5. It's funny how much our tastes can change from one year to another. I really dig the makeup! You seem to do a great job with is, so far as I'm concerned.
