Striped Dress: H&M // Boots: Rocket Dog // Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry
This outfit might not be the most summery, with the black tights, sleeves and a deep red lipstick, but it suits the very unpredictable British weather perfectly. I wore this out for a casual evening meal with friends last week - and I have to say, it did a pretty good job of hiding my food baby!
I'm not sure which type of stripes are meant to make you look slimmer, so it's a good job this dress has both - better to be safe than sorry hey! I picked it up in one of the US H&M stores in Boston, so I'm not 100% sure whether it's in the UK stores too. It was a bargain $14, so I couldn't resist picking it up with the idea that it would be an 'easy to throw on' piece that looks simplistically cute. I'm also wearing my new Revlon Matte Balm, which I picked up using some spare Boots points on my card. I've never really been one for the more dramatic, dark lip colours, I'm more of a nude/pink girl, so I surprised myself when I was drawn to this shade - especially in June! I'm going to be featuring it in a beauty post coming up soon, so keep an eye out for that.
Have you been wearing typically summery outfits at the moment? Or are you staying on the more cautious side like me?
