Hello everyone! Happy Monday! So if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you might have seen me casually mention *ahem* that I'm guest blogging in the St Enoch centre magazine that came out on Thursday. Just kidding, I was so excited that I think I told everyone I met that day. I got the outfit and had the pictures taken a while ago, so I'm glad to finally tell you all about it in today's post!
So it's the St Enoch centres 25th birthday this year and to mark the special occasion, I was asked to pick 'The Ultimate Birthday Outfit' to feature in their birthday issue of the magazine. Afterwards, I had my pictures taken by their photographer and also got to write a bit about what I picked and why.
Now let's talk about the outfit. I didn't really know what I was looking for at first, but when I went into Topshop I was instantly drawn to this mint sequin tee. I don't know if it's the colour or the sequins, I just love this. This metallic jacquard skort was hanging nearby and I couldn't believe my luck when I tried them and they went perfectly together - I'd found my outfit in record time! I decided to keep it simple for the shoes and came across this gorgeous rose/nude pair by Faith in the Debenhams sale. They were reduced from £55 to £16.50 and they only had my size left - is that fate or is that fate? Next, I found myself back in Topshop looking for a bag to break the colours up. I found this grey and white Colour Block Merino Clutch which finished it off perfectly I think. If you're wondering, this is the missing clutch bag I've been ranting about on Twitter. I know it must be in my flat somewhere, I just don't know where. *sigh*
Since I had my full outfit and still had a bit of my budget left, I did what any other girl would do and set off to Boots. I picked up the gorgeous 'Twinkle-belle' Essie Duo and a Bourjois 'Rouge Edition' lipstick in shade 17 'Rose Millesime' - I'll tell you more about these two in separate posts later this week!
Finally, thanks so much to the St Enoch centre for asking me to take part, and happy birthday! :)
What do you think of this outfit? Do you like wearing pastels together?
