OUTFIT: Canary Yellow

DRESS - ZARA / SHOES - MISS SELFRIDGE / STRAW CLUTCH - PRIMARK

Probably the brightest thing in my wardrobe by a clear mile, but I love this dress! It was a Zara sale bargain (no shock there then) and only cost £12.99. I've admired it for a while, but at that price it found it's way swiftly into my till stash. I hadn't purchased previously because I knew it would only be worn once or twice a year, since a colour like this will only work on super tanned skin or generally darker skin tones.

Getting pictures in the blazing sun proved hard, so my shoes were pretty much non existent in all of the shots. Essentially, they were nude high wedges. I'd normally chuck on some flip flops or simple sandals with this, but we were heading out to dinner, so wedges it was.

Would you wear something so bright?

OUTFIT: Zara Floral Trousers

 TROUSERS - ZARA [sale] / T SHIRT - ZARA [sale] / SHOES - ZARA [sale] / BAG - PARFOIS

I decked myself out in Zara head-to-toe without even realising. Seems to be a bit of a pattern these days though; Zara is definitely my favourite high street shop, and their sale is dangerous territory for my bank account.

I spotted these floral trousers on the sale rack in Portugal, and ran to grab them. I've seen them on someone before (but can't remember who!) and I've been wanting them ever since but could never find them. Most trousers in this style do not suit me at all, but the hight waist and tight fit of these make them comfortable but most importantly wearable with pieces already in my wardrobe.

I'll definitely be dressing these up for a night out with a crop top and heels, but it's nice that I can wear them casually like this too.

Do you have any statement trousers? How do you prefer to wear them?

Returned

Even by my standards, this has been one of my longer hiatus'. The photos above will hopefully explain the jist of it, but essentially July has been the month of summer holidays for me, and as you can imagine, a rather lovely month it has been indeed!

The photos above were taken on a family holiday in the Algarve, Portugal. I also visited Rhodes earlier in the month with some girl friends, which was equally beautiful - though somewhat more eventful - as you can imagine (*cough* all inclusive alcohol). Whilst I returned home from Rhodes more tired than I arrived after drinking, partying and dancing all night at the hotel mini disco clubbing... Portugal was the perfect opportunity to relax and do some different things like sea kayaking, watching a ferrari race and seeing dolphins! Along with the customary sunbathing and beach-going, obviously.

 Outfits posts and duty free/Sephora purchases to follow!

REVIEW: Seventeen Stay Time Concealer

I'll keep this post short and brief, because to be honest I've harped on enough about this stuff already. But just for the record, this is my perfect kind of concealer, and... it's also really bloomin' cheap.

It's creamy, but feels so weightless and not at all cakey when applied to the skin. I use this for both under eye circles (in a lighter shade) as well as blemishes and imperfections (in my true skin shade) and it works seamlessly for both. It blends well and sinks into the skin rather than sitting on top or 'caking' up.

To be honest, I reach for this over my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer which everyone adores, as I think it creases less and the colour selection is much better for my skin tone.

Have you tried this? Or do you love the Collection Lasting Perfection?
