❣ HEARTBREAKER ❣

❣ HEARTBREAKER ❣

Afternoon lovely bloggers, I thought that I would do a post of my OOTD because I am feeling it 😉

My crush at the moment are graphic tee’s – they’re so simple yet so trendy at the same time. Even though they’re ‘basic’, they’re such a WOW piece when you have it on. It’s what grabs other peoples attention.. How many times have you found yourself staring at someone trying to figure out what their top says? .. Or is that just me? 😄

The top I’m wearing has sequins in certain parts of the rose to define the petals which I love and surprisingly, none of them have fallen off yet so that’s a bonus 😉. The top is fully open at the back and ties up down the bottom to make it more tighter at the front. Some people don’t like t-shirts that are fully open at the back and to be honest, I was a bit nervous as well at first but I wore a little crop top underneath that matched the pink colour on the front of the top and it looked fab if I can say so myself 😄

I wore this top with black ripped MOM jeans but it looks great with a light jean also due to the bright colours of the tshirt

Sorry about the selfies in a bedroom – one day I will have a beautiful room with a mirror and bright lights to take my photos but for now, what I have will have to do 😉

Gingham 🔲

Lets spring back a few weeks ago to my blog post ‘Spring into RI‘ (once again, the link is just down below 😉) where I blogged about my fav pieces in the new River Island spring advert. In the advert, the model wore a beautiful gingham playsuit which I was crushing on and I just couldn’t resist.. I HAD to try it on 😍 😍.  Now lets just point the obvious out here because I feel like it’s the elephant in the room.. Yes, I am in a shop changing room and yes, it still has the tag on but it still looks beautiful, right? 😉 but can we please appreciate how beautiful this playsuit is pls? Not only does it have the very fashionable print of gingham, it also has the in season frill – perfect duo!!!

In the advert, they’ve layered it with a gingham blouse which is also beautiful but I prefer the two items separately. In this picture, I’ve layered it with a plain black tee simply because it’s too cold at the moment to go out with bare legs and bare arms.. And of course, layering is key 🔑

BOOHOO SUMMER17

Summer State Of Mind

Above is Boohoo‘s summer advert which launched yesterday called ‘Summer State Of Mind‘. Even though the advert isn’t very long, it shows all different types of styles going from the girlie pretty girl to the sporty girl to the unicorn girl. (Haha sorry, I forget that unicorn girl isn’t an actual thing.. What I mean by that is glitter and sequins 😄)

After watching this advert, I really want go spend my summer going on a road trip around America but instead I’ll be spending my summer by spending my money on their fabulous clothes 😍

The song in the video is ‘1 Night’ by Mura Masa ft Charli XCX which is an amazing choice but I don’t know if that’s a bias opinion because I love Mura Masa‘s music! 😉. Well, I know that Pretty Little Thing would agree with me as Mura Masa seems to be a popular choice in their adverts also. (I blogged about their recent SS17 Ad which you can find here: https://thatcasualgirl.wordpress.com/2017/04/21/plt-vs-festival/ )

In the ad, the model is wearing fishnet socks with embellished trainers and I absolutely LOVE this look! I wear fishnet socks and trainers all of the time, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the look! Mind you, I have never worn white fishnet socks like the model so I might try that one out next.. Just need a tan and I’ll be sorted, I don’t want them to blend in with the colour of my legs 😉

I also really like all of the sporty, netted outfits that they show in this advert. I know where I am about to shop, don’t know about you 😉

FRILL’ing it

IMG_2301

Frills are a key trend for SS17 and I feel like it’s one of those trends that suits the season.. They just feel summery for some reason (maybe it’s because you feel like a flower with it’s petals.. Did I just say that out loud? Lol) 😃

All retail and online shops are selling almost everything you could think of with frills including tops, playsuits, swimwear (the list goes on) but my fav item of clothing with frills at the moment has got to be frill hem trousers. I just think that they’re not only fashionable but they’re pretty and elegant.. You almost feel like the lady dancing emoji 😉

Ever since the trend has come about, I’ve been EAGER to get my hands on some trousers but I felt like they were too girlie for me.. I’m the type of girl who lives in trainers haha. However on my daily weekly clothing shopping spree, I stumbled across frill hem leggings.. Yes, LEGGINGS. It was like the fashion angels had opened their gates for me 😏. Not only are they fashionable, they’re super comfy and perfect for the ‘sporty’ fashion girl like me 🔥. As you can see from the photo above, I wore my leggings with my vans to ‘casual’  it down and styled it with a word graphic tee.

For you girls who want to feel fabulous this season, I’ve put together my 4 fav pieces and shown them below for you:

Pink Frill Hem Trousers – Missguided

Gingham Frill Hem Trousers – Pretty Little Thing

Pink Frill Trousers – Pretty Little Thing

Red Frill Trousers – Miss Pap

Missguided isn’t PLAYin”

Playsuits have always been a key fashion piece for your wardrobe and now it’s coming up to summer (..kinda) I felt it was the time to start shopping for them YAY!!! Even though most fashion retailers are bossing it with their stock of playsuits, Missguided are winning. I thought I’d share with you my fav pieces from Missguided that would make you feel like an ultimate babe 💜

My fav is the metallic playsuit. I’m loving the metallic vibes at the moment!

I-Brow(se)

I thought that I would do a post around my daily eyebrow ‘routine’ as I’m obsessed with buying eyebrow products.. It’s like a hobby for me lol. But first of all, I thought I’d address the awkward-ness of taking a photo of your eyebrows. Why is it so difficult 😄 you just move the camera at different angles like a photographer to take a good snap of each eyebrow.. and then you realise that it isn’t your good side and so on so on. So instead, I thought I’d crop a selfie.. That was the easiest way 😄

FullSizeRender (1)

So I start my daily routine with washing my eyebrows just to make sure that they’re funky fresh clean of no makeup product from the night before lol. Once I feel fresh, I let them dry for a bit because there is nothing worse than trying to fill in your eyebrows with makeup and it just doesn’t set properly because your eyebrows are wet. I don’t know if that only happens to me but it’s a real annoying problem 😄

Once they’re dry, I go through them with an eyebrow brush and then start to trim my eyebrows so there isn’t any long hairs sticking out. Today, I used my Sleek Eyebrow Stylist which I blogged about a while back (see bottom of the post for the link..  Got to plug my own blog posts whilst I’m here, right? 😉). Once I’ve filled in and shaped my eyebrows, I go over them with the clear ‘Brow Perfector’ by Sleek (have you noticed that I love this makeup brand yet by any chance? haha) to get the hairs in the correct place. I like the hairs at the start of my brow to go up straight, I feel it just blocks them off perfectly. Once I am happy with my brows, I use my Collection ‘Illuminating Touch Concealer‘ around the brows to tidy them up. The Illuminating Touch Concealer is so fab because the end of the pen is a brush and you twist the other end and the product comes out. As it is a pen, it is easy to apply around the shape of your brows and I just blend it in using a brush. This pen can also be used to illuminate your eyes or to contour your nose or cheek bones 😊
