WhatLauraWore: Casual Little Black Dress 14.07.2011

Morning Beautiful People <3

Thought I would show you my outfit from last Thursday.  It was my day off work and I ended up going for a look around the shops and afternoon drinks in the sunshine with a couple of my friends and then we went out on the nice for a meal and drinks along the seaside.  This outfit was perfect for carrying me from casual day wear to evening wear as I just fluffed my hair up for the evening and reapplied my lipstick, so id really recommend getting a dress like this. Its perfect for the summer, especially if you’re going away on holiday.


Black jersey summer dress from Evans
Cropped denim jacket from Joe Browns at Simply Be
Rose gold bracelet watch from DKNY
LOVE necklace from Primark
Coral jewel earrings from River Island
Creamy peach floral bangle from New Look
Gold heart ring from Tiffany & Co
Engagement ring (as always)
Gold flower sandals from Primark
Mock croc bag from River Island

I thoroughly enjoyed my day off, my favourite part was sitting outside at lunchtime as the sun was soooo hot.  I burnt a little on just one arm.  One of my friends however burnt pretty badly, it looked so painful by the evening, bless her.  Nothing a little aloe vera aftersun wont sort out though.  Aloe vera is fantastic if you’ve got sunburn as it takes the heat and the redness out of your skin.

Its my day off work today too and I’m gutted the weather hasn’t kept up from last week.  When is this British summer heatwave coming that the reports have been talking about?!  Think ive been waiting my whole life for it!  I’ve woken up with a sore throat today too which hasn’t helped my mood at all, so going to be popping pills like there’s no tomorrow to get rid of it and eliminate a full cold- i WILL go out at the weekend!

Just about to go in the bath now to wash my false tan off.  Major fail last night.  Started spraying on my St Moriz aerosol spray tan (its AMAZING, best I’ve ever used) and managed to do my legs and half way up my body until it ran out.  I bought a spare can a couple weeks ago as I’d had four full body applications out of my current can, so I knew it would be running out in the next couple of applications, but I just couldn’t find it in my blind panic!  I found the mousse which I’ve never used before so I just whacked that on the rest of my body.  It looks alright with the guide colour dried but the mousse looks a lot darker than the spray… The chances of this coming out looking even and streak free are about as slim as I am!  Anyway, ill let you all know the outcome on Twitter @whatlauraloves.
