Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! These past couple of days have been busy busy busy! My family celebrated my nephew's very 1st birthday! (aww) and yesterday was my glamorous mummy's birthday! So, there was a lot of celebrating going on. However, I managed to fit in a couple of pictures so I can show you all what I wore for both events. Although this is just a quick welcoming-august post and showing what I wore for both days, it's a mixture of lifestyle and fashion. So, I guess something a little different from your bog-standard 'Outfit of the Day' post! Anyway, I apologize in advance for the iphone-esque images, my camera decided that it didn't want to work for me this week haha! Anyway, Enjoy!
The above image is how I chose to wear my hair. I basically went for the 'half-up-half-down' style which is a favourite of mine. To do this, I simply just pinned two pieces of my hair from either side of my head to the back, tied a bobble which fastened them together. After doing this, I would slide in my huge black ribbon bow hair clip, just to give it a nicer effect and hide the bobble that holds the hair together. Simple! I bought the hair clip from Primark about 3/4 months ago for just £3.00. The ring that I'm wearing is also from Primark, which used to be in a pack of four or five for also £3.00.
As you can see, the outfit above is what I wore for my nephew's first birthday. Simple yet classy. I've got such massive love for polka dots lately, especially seeing as they're pretty much EVERYWHERE - I would say they're bang on trend. My sheer chiffron shirt with the pretty, monochrome polka dots was from the Topshop sale last month. For Topshop, it was a right bargain for the price of just £20.00! You can't see what I wore below, however I just teamed this look with a pair of plain black leggings and black studded flats to make it more casual rather than too dressy for a kids party.
Last but not least, this is the outfit that I wore for my mum's birthday. It wasn't a party or anything like that, it was just a couple of drinks at the pub and a meal out at the local Chinese restaurant. I love this linen-style top which features a button-up all the way up the back. The front side has lots of embellished white sequins and a beautiful floral pattern which really makes it different. As soon as I saw this top I instantly fell in love with it, because it can just spruce up any outfit, as you can see, I'm just wearing a pair of high-rise jeans with it. Both top and jeans are from River Island.
Top - River Island // £30.00
Jeans - River Island // £30.00
Me and my Glam Mummy on her Birthday!
For this occasion, very much unlike to the other day I wore my hair with a plaited fringe pinned to the back of my hair. It's just a simple summery do that instantly makes your hair feel 'made up'. For an extra bit of 'oompf' I heat-rolled my hair using my all-time favourite Enrapture heatrollers just to give my hair some curl and texture. You can buy the Enrapture heat-rollers for around £70. (Trust me, they're amazing!)
Me and my Sister
I will also be doing a post on how I achieved this makeup look on both days using the same products! So stay tuned for that!
As always, let me know what you think to my OOTDS!
Lots of love, Hannah xoxo
