OOTD- Has the bus come yet?






Big pat on the back for me finally a few outfit pictures where I look less Bob the plumber more me, not that there's anything wrong with Bob the plumber just not really the look I'm going for.

Although this outfit isn't anything spectacular I thought I'd share it with you as I think it's an easy everyday colourful summer look. My T-shirt is from River Island (they have some lovely things in at the moment) it's a great way of taking on the 'colour block' trend with minimal effort required. I love the neon yellow panelling I think the colour really pops against my skin tone. This T-shirt really brightens up what would otherwise be a pretty plain outfit, you could pair this with denim shorts, jeans or even tucked into to a pair of leather shorts. My jeans are New Look. I can't recommend New Look jeans enough, they have varied range of shapes and styles to flatter every figure. Some jeans look baggy in all the wrong places but I find New Look jeans fit really well and really flatter my figure. Most New Look jeans come in under £25 which for the quality, cut and how well they wash is a bargain. So if you're after a new pair of jeans but don't quite want to fork out on the Topshop  jeans (which I also love) check out New Look. The caged sandals are a couple of years old (sssh) they're real leather though and have survived several holidays they still look pretty good to say they've taken one heck of a beating, again these were from New Look. My bag is Zara, I apologise that the pictures don't really do it justice I'm planning on posting a 'what's in my bag' post pretty soon, but I purchased this bag for a cracking price  £25 on Ebay! I expected a bidding war, I prepared myself with a drink and snack at the ready but nope I pretty much won this without any effort on my part at all, the bag was brand new and came in it's original bag and packaging. I can't recommend Ebay enough for finding great clothing at affordable prices.

Bag- Zara Mini City Bag (sold out) 
Tshirt- River Island (sold out- only pink available)
Jeans- New Look 

For make up I kept things pretty natural and simple (as always) I used the 'Dr Brandt no more pores' as my primer followed by NARS sheer glow, NARS Creamy Concealer and the NARS Light reflecting loose powder (lots of NARS!) I used the Clinique high impact mascara, and on my lips is a combination of the Revlon lip butter (blotted down) in 'Berry smoothie' and S&G lip gloss in 'punch bowl.'

Do you like the colour block trend? What are your favourite shops for jeans?

I love your leather jacket, I've been looking for one just like that but haven't been able to find one that fits me well enough, the sleeves are usually too long for me. I haven't purchased anything from River Island but I love their clothing. You look great!

Hi Eli, thanks for stopping by, ooh thanks it's from Mango weird time to get a leather jacket but I was looking for one for ages but I always struggle with sizing this one fits perfectly! I'm exactly the same most just look big on no matter what size I get :D. You should check out RI they have so many nice stuff in at the mo and they've got rid of that weird logo sign they used to put on everything :D x

Rinica Warner said...

Rinica Warner said...

Rinica Warner said...

Thanks for the comment sweetie, I was exactly the same I just found myself putting unnecessary stuff in my big Zara bag it was killing off my shoulder! The smaller one is perfect though and still super roomy :D x

Rinica Warner said...

Rinica Warner said...

Thanks for comment, it's the lazy girls solution to colour blocking haha it does all the hard work for me i do like it though River Island seem to be upping their game x

Rinica Warner said...

Thanks for comment, aww thanks hun I think River Island seem to have lots of nice things in at the minute I love bright colours. They're so good aren't? I think the quality's really good for the price, I think I sometimes forget about New Look for jeans but I'm glad I rediscovered them x

Thanks for the comment Anna :D it's my own hair, I'm usually rubbish at doing plaits and getting them to hold (so many hair grips!) But I'm slowly getting there although part of me wants to buy one of those head band ones I bet they're easier haha x

I love your colorblock top- the colors go really nicely together! I don't know if you have this store in the UK, but I've really been loving my American Eagle jeans lately.
