OOTD- Skull and crossbones

Hello Lovelies!

If you follow me on twitter or read yesterdays post then you might know that I went lunching and shopping with my Mum and sister today as my sister doesn't come home very often. Anyway I fancied dressing up a bit for the occasion and thought I'd show you what I wore...

Blouse- COW vintage
Shorts- Ebay seller
Scarf- Market
Pumps- Primark
Hair Donut- Savers
Lips- Kate Moss for Rimmel shade 12
This is a bit of a different look for me as I'm usually all about pretty girly pastels and florals in the summer, but as it wasn't quite as warm today I fancied going for something a bit edgier. I absolutely love this vintage blouse I found in COW  last winter as I think it has very cool collar and cuff detailing and it goes with so much, plus it was about £7 if I remember correctly. In fact this whole outfit and accessories put together only cost me about £30 as I always think you can find trends for less if you look around! I also love my ebay faux leather shorts which I picked up for £12 because I couldn't quite bring myself to pay forty odd pound for Topshop ones. I do find them quite hard to style though, particularly in the summer so I went for bare legs and nude ballet pumps so I still looked quite girly and summery. Then I used the skull scarf, red lips and cross accessories to make the outfit a tad 'rock chicky' (cringee) without looking like I'm some sort of Nickleback groupie (although they do happen to be a guilty pleasure of mine). I'd also like to point that I'm sporting a donut in my hair for the first time as it's finally long enough to put up in one, I love it as it's so easy and gives the illusion that I've actually got rapunzel length hair...well kind of.

Ring (not worn in original photos)- My sister's from an individual Boutique
Nails- Barry M Mint Green and foil effects Gold
Cross Earrings- River Island
Others- New Look
So that was my day, I got a few pieces of jewellery from the Dorothy Perkins sale and some boring hair bits but was quite good other than that as pay day isn't till Friday. Off to get my boyfriend from the station now as he's just finished another day of being a city boy, I'm quite jealous really as I'd love to dress up in fancy office wear everyday!

I hope you've all had a lovely day,
Love Meg
