This week’s outfits – 16/06/12

This week was really busy, I was so rushed off my feet and feeling a bit miserable at the weather. I managed to put my pins out only once, and even so, it wasn’t the best weather! Friday was so crazy I didn’t have time to photograph my outfit… I will replace that for the outfit I wore for a wedding on Friday eve; not the best picture, as they were taken indoors in poor light – apologies for that!

Still,this is what I wore:


Bow print blouse (Primark), black pencil skirt (H&M),  tricolour court shoes (Zara), resin ring (Sobral), star ring (Primark), bracelets (pack from Topshop), NYX lipstick in Chloe.


Nude lace skirt and black top (both H&M), nude court shoes (M&S), nude stud bracelet (Primark),  rings (believe – Disney Couture; all others from new Look), MAC lipstick in Captive.


Teal dress (Primark), tricolour court shoes (Zara), flower bracelet (Primark), snake ring (New Look), NYX lipstick in peach bellini.


Navy and nude heart print dress (Little Mistress), nude slingback peeptoes shoes (Topshop, not pictured), nude stud bracelet (Primark), rings (believe – Disney Couture; all other from new Look), Lancome lipstick in hot stuff.
