dont be a kite




top: topshop
skirt: H&M
belt: primark
rings: asos, jwlry & forever 21
watch: swatch
Today I braved bare, tanless legs in public, I scrubbed all my tan off last night as Im really not sure how fake tan & going to the gym mix, I have a feeling it can only result in patchyness and streaks. Experiances in the comments! I wore that H&M skirt again and a top I got from Topshop on a whim. Purely because of the necktie I think. I went a little Topshop crazy the other day in the hope I'd find some things I'd like once I tried them on at home with my own clothes. Does anyone else do that? Buy and try at home? I really don't like changing rooms because I don't trust the mirrors or the lighting!  I have a lovely red skirt and yellow scalloped shirt combo to show you all soon! I knew Topshop should be my downfall!

Restocked alot of things in my jewellery store. I have tons and tons of the most popular items in stock at the moment! Everything from the trios to the not so limited edition five for £10 deal!

  8. Love that top! Nearly bought it yesterday, the colour is gorgeous. I always buy clothes and try them at home, I'm sure all the lighting in changing rooms is against me! x

  12. You look like an absolute doll! Your hair is so beautiful wavy, and you look great fair skinned. That top is so darling, especially with the ruffled collar and bow.

    much love.

  13. Love this colour combination on you!
    I'm loving the neck tie blouses at the minute. They seem to go with everything.

    I have the same problem with changing rooms. The lighting always makes my skin look an awful colour, and a lot of the mirrors are slanted to make you appear taller and slimmer!

  16. You´re so right on the fake tan and gym thing. I always find the tan going off and getting a bit patchy so i´m not that big a fan.
    As for the changing rooms, I find some of them suprisingly thrilling (H&M´s ones always make me feel like I´m thin and actually look nice:)) but most of them truly terrible, highlighting every single imperfection. Blah.
    Lovely outfit, though. I´m a big fan of the skirt and the wavy hair.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Absolutely loving this :), the colour combination goes so well, you look really summary AND gorgeous :)
    I really want the skirt aswell but i can't find it anywhere in my H&M and its not even on the website, Booooo! :( oh wells! xxx :)

  18. Your hair looks amazing curly!
    Trust me those legs are not pale! I would blind people without fake tan!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Like this outfit, I'm yet to brave bare legs this year!

    I always try on clothes in shops, because I HATE to take things back (not organised enough to do it on time) and usually I pick up the completely wrong size. Awkward body.

  20. Love the colour of your top! I understand the thing about tanning, it's such a faff! xxx

  22. I always buy and try at home, I cant be bothered pulling my clothes on and off all day, getting knotty sweaty hair does my head in! Id much rather just take back what I dont like. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  23. wow you look gorgeous! that top is amazing! the colour is so vibrant and lovely, looks so good on you and with the dark blue of the skirt!

  24. I wish I had experience to give you about going to the gym with a fake tan, but unfortunately I am too lazy to go to the gym. But I have been to a big concert with one, and there was a lot of fun exercise, and it lasted pretty well.

    I love the outfit. The color of the top is just lovely.

  25. i nearly got that top last night, its cute, i liked it for the necktie too haha ive gotta stop getting things simply for one element! and yes, i buy then try at home hoping it looks nice. hate it when it doesn't though cos returning always makes me nervous

  26. Lovely skirt! I never use changing rooms, i like walking around a bit to see how comfortable it is, and to try with my clothes too!

  34. That top is lovely! The necktie is what I like about it too.
    What do you use to scrub your fake tan off? I always just leave it and it goes soooo patchy!

  40. Freaking love the skirt!
    And I've only ever used fake tan once. It resulted in patchy, orange legs, despite me using Xen Tan (stupidly expensive and no-ones had ever streaked before...well, mine did!)

  41. Your hair looks so cute like that! I love this combo =)

  42. if you're using good self tanner there will be no problem with spots etc. try Shiseido.

    ReplyDelete
  43. What self-tanner do you usually use? I definitely need some tips! As far as I'm concerned though my self-tan usually stays put with exercise as long as you don't apply it just before (but why would you?) x

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've been thinking about getting that top, theres something about it that is telling me not to get it.
    I used to buy and try now I try and buy
