Spring Days In The Country.

It's been a looooong couple of weeks and it's left me feeling very tired and in need of a holiday. The best I could do was to escape to my hometown to visit my parents and cats. I haven't visited in a couple of months and I was amazed to see how incredible the garden looks now it is the spring time. Hundreds of different kinds of flowers are opening up and blooming and the garden is filled with the sounds of birds chirping. It's my idea of heaven. So today I decided to take some photos of my outfit as I wandered around and enjoyed the sights and smells.

These cute pants came in the mail today and I am IN LOVE. I've always wanted some gorgeous trousers and these are just everything I want. They are a super tight fit, look great on the hips and bum and are high waisted. The pattern is an adorable burgundy red with blue-ish black tones. The only con I can see so far is that the hips are a very tight fit but the waist is almost a little too big so they're definitely made for a cute high waisted black thin belt. I teamed it with a cropped black t-shirt and some pointed brogues to complete the look. I'm loving this simple chic look right now, especially because I can wear it to work and then out afterwards. 

On my lips i'm wearing Limecrime's Wicked Velvetine and I have to admit I am going to swallow my words. Initially I found it incredibly difficult to apply and found it wore off far too quickly but after a few practise applications I can now apply it in seconds and find if you apply two or three layers it lasts quite well.You definitely need to re-apply after eating and drinking otherwise it seems to do the job quite nicely. The matte finish is gorgeous and really livens up your face and outfit. I find the lipstick to be quite classy rather than overdone and whilst I wouldn't have recommended it at first, now i'm going to give it a big thumbs up.

Today this adorable skirt came in the mail! The second I saw it I knew I had to have it. It's great both for work and for outside of work and the fit is incredibly flattering. I teamed it with this black button up shirt as I was thinking of potential work outfits that fit with being able to go out straight afterwards. Definitely going to wear this tomorrow. I really love this outfit and know i'll be getting a lot of wear out of it. The skirt is a beautiful thick fabric and I love the pattern. I'm enjoying teaming something with a bit of colour or a pattern with blacks. It's definitely a hero piece.
