Simple Stripes


It's a yucky, rainy day in Cork today so I thought I'd prove it to you all with a photo of my very wet-looking balcony!  How do you like my three little geranium plants?!  Hopefully they're not all dead by next week.  That's normally the case with any plants I get.

What I'm Wearing:
Striped shirt - GAP
Indigo jeggings - ASOS.com
Ballet flats - Accessorize
Pearl bracelet - A gift from my mom
Earrings - Accessorize
Bag - Chloe

As you can see from all my outfits, my style is very simple and I favour neutral colours like navy blue, black, beige and grey!  I kept my make-up neutral too, and am wearing my Kiko blush in #1 Soft Sand with Benefit's Hoola as a contour and Bonnebell's Blend'n'Glow as a highlight.  On my eyes I have the usual: Maybelline Line Definer and Impala Waterproof eye pencil in black with The Body Shop's Big and Curvy mascara and Kiko eyeshadow in #80.  On my lips I have Summer Angel lipstick by Rimmel!

For my hair, I styled it in a simple classic bun.  You can watch the hair tutorial on this look here.


When I was in Kinsale yesterday, I picked up the cutest pair of blue and white striped flannel shorts in the sale for €36 in a local boutique.  I know summer's over but I couldn't resist these!  The brand is an Italian one, Egerie and they're a size too big so I may have to get them taken in a bit.  But they were just too sweet to leave in the shop!

What did you wear today?  Have you bought anything new in the sales?

Stay Stylish!
xoxo
