so, apparently summer isn't quite over yet, despite me really, really, really getting into the autumn hype right now. buuuut, the one thing that's making me feel ok about the fact it was over thirty degrees this week, was that i got to wear one of the only summer items i picked up in my recent order from everything5pounds. i didn't think i'd get a chance to wear it this year, but.. god loves an indian summer!
dress c/o everything5pounds | sunglasses + shoe : asos | bag + headscarf : primark | necklace c/o yosa
the watermelon stripes really give this midi dress that seaside, retro vibe so i really tried to play to that (while trying to make my bright pink hair a little less conspicuous) with the headscarf, bold lip and wedged sandals combo. the statement necklace also adds a really modern twist to this especially retro outfit. and, i bloody love how it came together!
clinique pop matte lipstick c/o house of fraser
but the best thing about this look? this lippy. i'm not usually a fan of matte lipstick as i have a pretty dry lip usually, and it kinda does that gross bitty thing almost as soon as it touches the skin, but not this. the clinique pop matte lipstick* has a built-in primer to it, so it glides on and literally adds an additional barrier layer of protection, making the colour not only last longer, but also moisturises the lip as it goes. i'm so in love with the rose pop colourway which is quite a dark reddy pink, and very muted, so actually will be the besssst colour for autumn. hurry up autumn!
