OOTD- Feeling Blue

So the weather has changed, it's a bit chilly and rainy, as, I guess, April should be. To keep in tune with this, I went for a swim at my local pool (60 lengths, it's my number) and wore blue.

Er, I promise I don't always pose with my head down....

See!

The dress is from Topshop, the cardi is H&M kids. The dress I adore, but rarely wear because a) the material is extremely thin (which leaves me chilly) and b) is it a formal dress? one to wear to work? shopping? All of the above? I don't know, and I guess it doesn't really matter. Who needs to categorise?!

I also wore my Loreal Caresse Lipstick in 'Daring Coral'. It is more like a balm/gloss than a lipstick, as it is quite sheer and shiny, rather like the ohsofamous Revlon Lip Butters. I will definitely be purchasing more of these, as they feel lovely to wear, are really moisturising and I love the colours. I think I will get the Tempting Lilac next. And tempted by the Fashionista Pink too, but when I swatched it it looked very sheer. Have any of you lot tried this? What do you think?

  7. Your dress is such a beautiful colour! Wear it when you want, I find that if you just save clothes for certain occasions they rarely get worn and they go to waste! xxx
