Apples and pears...

Despite the fact I wear this top fairly often, I never seem to get a decent picture of it. I love the fun print and it is always a conversation starter, no wonder it is one of my favourite tops! Although I'm (more than a ) little grumpy that the weather has stopped being so nice, it is always good to get more wear out of my winter basics, I'm not quite ready to give up long sleeves just yet! Another smug face from me here, I think you can tell that I really love this outfit :)

Top: Uniqlo x Orla Kiely, shorts: Boutique by Jaeger, tights: Tesco, shoes: Clarks

Throughout my final couple of years at school, I was obsessed with wearing bright green Rimmel eyeshadow. Luckily I have outgrown my neon green days but I do still have a soft spot for green eyeshadow and this Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in Anis fulfils all my bright eyeshadow needs. It can be difficult to know what to pair with such a bright colour but this Revlon lipbutter  in 'Peach Parfait' is the perfect subtle peach shade.


I probably should have ironed these shorts before wearing them but never mind! These shorts weren't the cheapest thing I have ever bought but you definitely get what you pay for, the quality is ace and the frilled hem just adds a little something to every outfit. I love the fact that these shorts are a little longer too.  I may be wearing them with black opaques here but I can't wait till I can switch back to my 15 deniers!


Do you have any beauty faux pas from when you were younger?

I love these shorts, they are such a Maria piece so you must have got your wear out of them :) The top is cute too and your mention of the neon green has me remembering my schoolgirl obsession with blue mascara.

I love this outfit so much I want to steal it! Oddly my make up mistakes(?) were in my first year of uni. Blue mascara, green mascara, purple mascara, bright green eyeshadow, bright turquoise eye shadow! Haha, what can I say... I was an art student.

Love the shorts as well! I went through such a shorts phase a couple of years ago but can't remember the last time I wore them :(
