you and me







tunic: topshop
leggings: topshop
jacket: boohoo
fur: new look
necklace: forever 21 
boots: topshop (albas)
nails: models own bloobloo* and 99p store glitter nail polish

Quickie post today as I've got so much to do and nothing seems to be falling into place! Excuse my general orange appearance, its what you get when you trust MUA's to match your foundation at a counter for a sample, needless to say this is obviously not my non-tanned colour. Although personally I actually like the way it looks, maybe I'll fake tan the rest of my body to match. I really dont do or like being pale! I'm just way to lazy to go through the tanning motions! I need a spray tan booth in my house.

  20. I hate being pale also but can't be bothered sitting on the 'tan towel' for god knows how long trying to getting an even all over golden glow with st tropez. The home tanning booth sounds a good idea to me! Love the nails by the way

  34. Tanning takes wayyy too much effort. Probably why I'm always a walking milk bottle.

  35. Love this outfit, I see the crosses continue! I think you look lovely whether you're pale or darker, although I have the same feeling whenever I'm looking too pale,

  36. I love how you've combined the New Look faux fur with a Boohoo jacket - it looks like part of the jacket, like you bought it that way :) I don't actually think you look orange - it can look really obvious against white and you certainly don't look tangoed x x

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think I need to buy me some leather leggings/trousers. I've been debating them for ages now (they kind of scare me with visions of Ross from Friends getting stuck in them), but they look great on you and on Emma from Milkteef, so I'm almost persuaded! The last couple of Boohoo jackets you've worn recently look great too!

    Completely with you on the fake tan thing. I love being tanned, but just don't have the patience to do it!!
