Today's Look 22/08/13

Well the british weather seems to be on the up for the second time this summer, so this morning I traded in my leggings for my favourite ever dress.


This dress was £24.99 from Cameo Rose at New Look and it has the most gorgeous floral pattern. The material is polyester and it has that kind of bumpy texture that seems to be really on trend at the minute. This dress pulls in at the waist and it also has a ruched neckline which I think makes it really flattering. I just think that the floral print is really summery and as it ties in a lot of colours it's really easy to accessorise. I am a massive fan of floral print as it's just so pretty and feminine - perfect for girly days!


To accessorise the only thing I wore was my Michael Kors watch as I think that the print is bold enough to be left alone! I got this watch for christmas and I wear it nearly everyday!


I bought my shoes from New Look a couple of years ago and have managed to keep them in pretty good condition! They're a lovely coral colour with a gold underlay and they are perfect for sunny days. I think that with all of the colours on a floral print dress you're able to team it with so many colours of shoe or sandal that you can't go wrong really!



And for today's make up I wore my faves! Nivea Hydrating Primer for starters with my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation. As a bronzer I wore the infamous chocolate bronzer by Bourjois and on my cheeks I wore the brightest pink from my Sephora Palette (see post below!). For my brows I used my ever faithful Urban Decay Brow Box in Honey Pot! I used Urban Decay Primer Potion to prime my eyes and then applied the top row, second from the left baby pink eyeshadow from the Sephora Palette to my eyelids! My liquid eyeliner is Collection's Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner (THE BEST EVER) and my mascara is Lash Domination by bareMinerals. On the lips is Maybelline's Superstay 14hr Lipstick in Stay With Me Coral!

For my hair I used my GHD straighteners to create a really subtle wave.

And there you go, that's how I created today's look! I must apologise for the silly poses! Do you guys like this sort of post? Do you use any of the same make up items as me?

Would love to hear from you!

Lots of love, lovelies. Steph xxxx


P.S. Here's a cheeky blooper! Going to grab the camera back I think!
