OOTD

Dress - New Look Bolero - New Look Belt - DIY-ed Shoes - Miss L Fire @ ASOS Necklace - Primark Watch - Gifted Butterfly Clips - Pwllheli Market

I know you aren't really supposed to mix red & pink, but I've seen some great red & pink mixes over the years, but haven't ever tried it myself. So today I gave it a go. It was boiling today, so I went barelegged for the first time..since I was in school, 4 years ago. I wore a pair of cycle shorts underneath, because obvs heat & fat legs=agony! I did actually feel very self concious the whole time, so not sure if I will be doing it regularly. One (old) man actually turned in my direction just to stare at my legs, which I found disconcerting to say the least, lol. At least I was (fairly) cool.

While I was out, I also managed to find Glamour, & picked up all 3 of the freebies. I was originally just going to get the eyeliner & eyebrightener, because I've never used concealer, but my Mum said if it were her, she would get all 3. So I did. :) I'm going to give each of my spare copies to my Mum & Sister, so not completely wasted, even if we do all live in the same house & we share magazines anyway:P

I also saw the cutest dresses in TKMaxx, with bunny print on but obviously none came in my size:( BUT, I bought 2, and am hoping to at least be able to sew them together into a skirt, because the print really was too cute to pass on. They had dresses with fifi lapin on, with a purpley background, and white bunnies with red bows on a white background, & I was really torn between them. In the end I went for the white bunnies on white, because I think that will work with more of my things. It's not going to be the easiest DIY, because the fabric is chiffon, and it is also lines, but I will make it work.

  14. I think you mixed pink and red quite well :)

    I am in the same boat as you about showing off my legs. I recently invested in a pair of shorts that are slightly about my knee, I was very unsure about them, but with the heat we are getting I knew I should own a pair of shorts. I wore them all day in public and felt kind of awkward. I tried to keep myself busy so that I didn't even think about what I was wearing, it helped.
    I think you totally rocked the bare legs though!
