Little Black Playsuit

As I write this I'm sitting on the floor, in the room I've been sharing with my sister this weekend in a stunning holiday home in Derbyshire, with a hot chocolate in my hand. It's my grandma's birthday on Monday so when Friday came around, 40 or so members of my family jumped in their cars and travelled from all over the UK to the Peak District, where we had a rather huge home waiting for us to enjoy.

Last night (Saturday) we had a bit of a party, so we all popped our gladrags on and sat down to a gorgeous meal. As you'll all more than likely know, I love getting all dressed up so I got a tad excited at the prospect of this.

As you may know from reading my February Chit Chat post, March is a month where I really want to venture slightly more into the world of fashion blogging so I thought that a little OOTD post would be a good way to start.


I went for a Little Black Playsuit, (or call it a romper if you will) with lovely lace detailing from Boohoo.com and paired it with a simple black H&M blazer to dress it up that little bit more. Footwear-wise, I went more casual, and popped on my Topshop Chelsea boots on top of my Topshop Black Frilly Socks.





For my Makeup I went for a fairly simple look. I used the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation (in the shade Ivory), the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (in the shade Ivory) and the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (in the shade Sandstorm) to give me a lovely base. For my brows I used the Rimmel Brow Pencil (in the shade Hazel) and for my eyes I used the "Gift Basket" eyeshadow from my Sleek Oh So Special Palette, and the Benefit "They're Real" Mascara. I went for a fairly dark lip look, and used my Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Lipstick in "Timeless Brown".


Hair-wise, I went quite simple. I just braided a fairly small strand of hair from towards the front of my head, secured it with an elastic hair band and pinned it up round the back of my head. I recieved a fair few compliments about my hair during the night, so it'll definitely be a look I try out more.

I was so happy with my overall look last night and I think it may be one I come back to fairly frequently in the future.
