(Quick apologies for the grainy photographs – I set the wrong camera settings, doh!)

Here with are with my final instalment of the styling challenge I was given by the lovely people over at New Look. I’ve had a really fun time thinking of different ways to dress up the denim shirt, and I’m happy with how they’ve turned out, especially this final one – the dressy version. Okay, so it’s not dressy-dressy, but it’s not too casual either, and it’s certainly very wearable during the day and at night. Pssst, if you haven’t already, make sure you check out my first and second outfits.

Onto the outfit itself, which, without me even realising, is pretty much all Primark (apart from the denim shirt of course, and the bag that I borrowed off Helen). What can I say? I just love Primark and I fully support that you can find some great things in there if you’re willing to root around. My latest find is this sleeveless blazer which caught my eye the other day on a quick visit. I’d been after a sleeveless duster or blazer for a little while, but didn’t want to pay too much – as I didn’t know whether it would suit me and my wardrobe. So when I spotted this Primark offering, I had to pick it up! I love what it adds to my style, and I’m sure it won’t be the final time you see it in my outfit posts. To add some print to this outfit, I decided on this palm print skirt which I bought last summer and got a surprising amount of wear from.

I’ll let you in on a little secret here, but in the majority of my outfit photographs that I’m going all bare-legged… I’m normally wearing a pair of skin coloured tights. I know, I know, it’s terrible right, but my legs are that pale that they tend to go over-exposed in photographs and cause a bit of a lighting nightmare (l o l)! And with that I’ve had the dilemma of wanting to wear open-toed sandals and not being able to, until that is, I was contacted by UK Tights whether I’d like to try a few of their toeless tights. I think it’s pretty safe to say that they are da bomb, such a handy thing to have and you can’t even tell I’m wearing them, which gets a thumbs up in my books. Finally, as this outfit is a little dressier than the others, I thought it were a perfect time to sport a red lip (Topshop Velvet Lips, if you’re wondering) and match it with this dreamy Mulberry bag.
Who says you can’t match your lip colour and bag? I’m all for it!
