you're my sweetheart

Not really a autumn/winter weather appropriate outfit, considering the average temperature is around the 11 degree mark but in all honesty Sunday consisted of chilling, blogging, having a 9 hour sleep and trying out skincare products. Notice minimal revision whatsoever? I did...

The striped sweater was one of those I-can't-believe-I-still-own-this finds, I bought it in Mango in Saket, Delhi almost three years ago when my Mum has a 1000 rupee off voucher (equivalent to around £12) and I bought this for around the £9 mark. It's lightweight, perfect for an Indian winter and a British autumn, stripy and has a very cute collar. The shorts are a boxing day sale find from last year, costing £15 from Topshop. They're a size 6 so fit quite well, giving space around the waist however that's nothing a belt can't solve. The colour which the website once named 'Bordeaux' is a gorgeous deep purple colour, which for me is very autumnal and reminds me of France... it must be in the name.

Tights are from Primark as always, I consider them to be essential yet disposable so affordability is imperative. My babies shoes are the pair I bought recently and I just love them, words cannot just... I should stop gushing. As for makeup I've been keeping it minimal, I never wear any makeup to school anyway as I'm placing lots of effort towards my acne clearing up. My eyeshadow is using a trio from No.7 called ' Good Earth', consisting of a matte ivory, matte mid-brown and a shimmery brown. Earthy, as the name suggests, and very wearable. I'm wearing my favourite tinted lipbalm on my lips, it's Body Shop's pomegranate and gives a noticeable yet subtle red sheen. 

Hope you're all having a lovely week,


p.s - title song : I've been absolutely addicted to it, been on replay for the past ten days!
