pearls, no poodles


Blouse – TK Maxx

Necklace – H&M

Lipstick – MAC Petals and Peacocks

I am loving oversized statement collars and necklaces at the moment and H&M have been wheeling out a great collection of accessories recently. I picked up this chunky, twisted pearl necklace a few weeks ago and have felt extremely attached to it ever since. I like the mix of the pearly-white and bronzed beads and find myself wearing it with sheer blouses and collared shirts.

Petals and Peacocks lipstick is such a fierce fuchsia pink, but unfortunately I am teasing you by wearing it as it was a limited edition colour released over two years with the MAC Liberty of London collection. Although knowing what MAC is like, I am positive we shall be seeing this shade re-promoted some time soon. However, to fill the void in the meantime, make sure you enter my Illamasqua competition, to be in with a chance of winning Eurydice – a stunning, hot pink lipstick. Ten of my readers will win one!

I am so happy it is Friday and we have the prospect of the long bank holiday ahead of us! What have you got planned for this extended weekend?

    Oh my those are gorgeous! I've always loved chunky, statement jewellery but I have never really been able to find something that will match my style but these are fab! Great find! I love the blouse too, did you buy it recently? I might go and see if it's still about.

    This weekend catching up on blog posts and writing my own. Very pretty necklace. It would look great in winter with a faux fur gilet or cropped jacket. Beautiful.

    I adore this necklace. H&M have really been pulling it out of the bag recently with accessories – I seem to have purchased about 10 necklaces in a couple of weeks. It looks fab over a complex collar too.
