Simple with a twist!

I popped into Topshop a few days ago - with some birthday gift cards in hand - and was very proud of myself when I only walked out with two items...one of which was the grey jumper pictured below.
It's the perfect jumper for the UK's August weather, as it's loose enough to let you breath but warm enough for those chilly days which seem to be upon us more and more!


Grey jumper - Topshop

Black ribbed tank top/vest - Topshop

Shorts - Topshop

Necklace - Primark

Seen as my outfit was so plain I decided to pair it with my very neglected Costa Chic lipstick by MAC. I'm not usually one for brighter colours, mainly because my lips aren't that big and I find the paler the lipstick the bigger they look. I also tried out the whole 'accent nail trend' last night, which I think looks pretty cool, although I keep thinking I've bruised my finger when I see it in my peripheral vision!




Nails - Barry M Pink Flamingo and OPI Designer Series mini (not sure of name - came in Julys Glossybox)

Face - Revlon Photoready foundation in 02 and 03 (gives a nice neutral shade), Rimmel Silky Loose Powder, Collection 2000 Shimmering Glow in No.5, Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

Eyes - MAC Paint pot in Bare Study, MAC Retrospeck over eyelid, MAC Caviar Dreams in crease, L'oreal Super Liner in Carbon Gloss, Maybelline False Lash Effect mascara

Lips - MAC Costa Chic and MAC
