Look Fantastic Beauty Box | April 2017

look fantastic april 2017 beauty box

Another month another delivery packed with everything I need in my life and more. I'm a self-confused beauty junkie who needs new products in my life on the reg, be it new skincare, treatments or a new lipstick. Every month, i'm spending my money on products, products, products - so it's an absolute saviour to have something like Look Fantastic's Beauty Box in existence. What else is a beauty lover supposed to do? Most of all - I love trying something new, especially if it's been hyped about recently on Instagram or my favourite bloggers are talking about it - let's face it, we're all a sucker for a pretty picture, especially when you love Instagram yourself! 

Drizzy Love

Any excuse to take me back to my dance roots, I take it... And you could probably say any excuse to take me to my childhood days, I'll take that too! 
I'm having so much fun styling up old favourites lately and one thing I never stopped loving was my tulle skirt from Zara. I've loved it for so long, it's not even in season anymore! I picked this one up at the beginning of the A/W season and I literally haven't taken it off since. I'm a sucker for a midi, throw some tulle in there and i'm completely besotted. Kinda regret not buying it in every colour, obv.
Another old fave? These gold platforms I picked up last Summer from Missguided. I've only worn them once because i'm such a wimp when it comes to breaking in shoes (and I own so many by the time they make their way through the cycle, they need it all over again) but there's something about a touch of metallic that finishes any look whatever the season or year. For more of a daytime look, I paired these with some old school frilly socks to take it from bar to office without looking too OTT.

Sleeve Game Strong

SS17 sleeve fashion trend

IT'S WARM AT LAST! This time is both my favourite time of the season, and my least favourite. Where we get to adorn pretty frills and abolish the jackets, we also have to go through the entire 'wardrobe overhaul' bullshit that nobody has time for (especially lazy little me...) - and for the record, I definitely haven't done that yet and i'll be putting it off for as long as possible.
Back to the strong AF sleeve game going on over here though... Sleeves ain't going ANYWHERE this season - and if you thought you were fed up of seeing those flute sleeves, sorry guys, the rest of us aren't! As soon as I saw this dress I knew I had to add it to my S/S wardrobe - baby blues (and of course gingham) are my absolute faves for the season and i'll be flooding my rail with anything and everything that fits the bill.  
Pair pretty Spring pieces with cool metallic pieces to update that frilled style if you're not a girly girl like moi. These Stella-esque rose gold babies from Public Desire are my ultimate go-to shoes lately to finish any look, and did I mention they're actually comfy too? I'll take all colours, please and thank you.

Gingham Obsession

gingham ss17 trend

It's return of the gingham, and I couldn't be happier. Each season there's a trend that literally wipes out the high street and has fashion followers snapping up an array of pieces left, right and centre - and this season it's the take on the old school girl pinafore that's got us all gaga. There was something about the red, yellow and blue gingham checks that paraded down the runway at House of Holland's SS17 show that had us all craving our old school uniforms, and when Shrimps also revealed their gingham collection for the season, it definitely sealed the deal as one of the seasons biggest trends. 
Personally, I probably own close to double figures now of pretty gingham items that won't last the fight of the trends next season, but it's definitely worth it even for the short lived obsession. 
With the pretty addition of floral embroidering, this shirt from Influence secured it's spot as a workwear fave which i'll definitely be sporting at least twice a week.
How are you styling gingham this season?
