Mexican wave




jacket: zara
t-shirt: topshop
skirt: american apparel
boots: topshop
necklace: topshop
lips: louise gray @ topshop 'mexican wave'
nails: barry m 'raspberry'

This is probably my favourite outfit of the week, I've never really experimented with wearing maxi skirts during the Winter as I've just always assumed they were more of a Summer garment. I paired my sheer black maxi with thick black tights and black knicker shorts underneath so that you still get the effect of the sheer fabric without being able to see through it. I also wore my oversized grey t-shirt with rolled sleeves that is quite long so this also covered part of the skirt and created a very relaxed and boyish look. My Adonis boots also add a biker feel to the outfit combined with my khaki/ leather sleeve jacket which is getting a bit old now but I still love it. 

I bought this 'Mexican Wave' lipstick by Louise Gray when the collection was first released, I wasn't too impressed by the rest of the products but loved this. The colour is a very bright orange/ red which glides along the lip easily created a full colour which stays on really well throughout the day. Although, eating my sandwich in Pret was rather difficult, managed to get it all down my chin and on my neck?! Who knows! I was mega lazy last night and didn't change my nails, however today I was given a free American Apparel nail polish with my purchase and got to choose from a few colours so shall be using that tonight!
