I've only just realised how out of focus my full-length photos are, oops! I usually take my photographs in the morning before work so I'm always in a huge rush/ half asleep. It also doesn't help that I'm trying to get to grips with a new camera, but I didn't want to leave them out as then you wouldn't get to see the outfit as a whole. 

I mentioned in my previous post that I was really unsatisfied with an Asos order I received lately. Well, this is the only item from my order that I decided to keep and I wasn't 100% sure about it initially. I ordered a size small and it measured out really big, I guess the look is meant to be oversized but I always feel like I'm being swamped in large t-shirts. I love the mink shade of the lace fabric, we know how much I love my nudes so this fits in with my wardrobe colour palette perfectly. I wore it with a nude crop top underneath so it wasn't see-through and my American Apparel high-waisted lycra leggings which I still swear by. 

I attended a birthday party last week for one of my friend's 21st and needed a large statement necklace as the Zara dress I wore was fairly plain. I picked up this beautiful white, crystal and rose gold necklace within the higher-end jewellery section and ended up wearing it. I've also been wearing it during the day with jumpers and shirts, it really stands out against pastel shades and compliments an outfit well. It was £45 which I know is rather steep for a necklace, but it has a classic style and is something I will always wear during any season.

I have been looking for the perfect mint green nail polish for Spring and 'Moire Green' by & Other Stories hits the nail on the head. Originally, I wasn't sure if it was slightly too pale, but now after adding a couple of coats I really love the fresh mint shade. I found the polish really easy to apply, the brush is quite wide so it doesn't take long to apply to each nail and it has a lovely glossy finish. I haven't actually added a top coat, but nail polish does tend to dull after a few days wear so I may add an extra coat and top coat tonight to brighten the colour back up.
