Pearly Queen

Todays outfit is a Primark double whammy. I’m wearing the green batwing top I got a month or so back in the Primark sale (see my sale haul blog here) with my new chunky pearl necklace I got last week.
The necklace has been a long time coming! I saw it last year in the press and then never saw it again. Zara had a very similar one which I adored but couldn’t justify the money and then last week in Lakeside, for just £3, there it was! My hunt was finally over!

I added Dorothy Perkins washed black petite skinny jeans and Dorothy Perkins buckle boots. The jeans are another new purchase. I’ve been trying really hard to lose my final bit of weight (I’ve lost nearly 7 stone in total) and needed a some size 10 jeans as my 12 are getting a bit baggy. I wanted tight…but in a good way! With a boxy shape top you needed a slim silhouette on your legs for balance.
I also added a green eyeshadow to my normal make-up.

I’m not going to fall out of love with green anytime soon and as for pearls – they go with anything, look great and have a classic style to them that just can’t be beaten. The perfect stylists accessory.

Green sparkle

A little way back I bought a great green sequin jumper from Primark (see it in my Primark Haul blog). I love green. I don’t know why – I’ve got green eyes and am a Pisces so I don’t know thats got anything to do with it!

Todays outfit is a simple one for everyday wear – jumper, jeans and boots. Simple. Its great to dress up but everyday cant be a catwalk!
I really like the sparkle in this jumper – at £10 its a bargain and a slightly loose fit so I went for a size 10. The black jeggings from Dorothy Perkins are great – lots of Lycra and you get them in a short length. Again I am wearing a 10.

I don’t wear tons of make up but wore green eyeshadow and a touch of lipgloss. The necklace is vintage but adds a bit to interest without being too blingy. For layering I have added a black long sleeve tee underneath with the edges showing. Again, simple styling for everyday wear.
