a stroke of pink.

I decided to start using my blog for whatever I want (travel! Books! Personal news!), because I don’t always want to do outfit posts. But sometimes I still want to do outfit posts. Like this one! I wore this outfit to dinner with friends on Saturday night and I loved it. Monki dresses never let me down: they always look great and are so easy to wear. This shirt dress style is currently available in various prints, and I really wanted the green palm print pattern, but it’s not on ASOS and they had sold out in an L in the Carnaby branch. That’s ok though- the black and white brushstroke print is extremely cute and probably more versatile.


Jacket: ASOS (now only available in a 14)
Dress: Monki
Shoes: Evans

I stocked up on a fair amount of makeup while I was in LA, including a Colourpop order. Although they ship to the UK, shipping can be expensive and I know some friends have been stung badly with import fees, which is why I got my order sent to a friend there. Here, I’m wearing their Ultra Matte Lip in Mars, which is a really beautiful bright, strong pink. The collar chain I’m wearing is a very old ASOS purchase.
