Hi ladies! OK so here's my first diary entry for my ultimate African/holiday outfits. I thought I'd begin with my travel outfit. I'll give you a tip... I know you just wanna chuck on a pair of sweats and converse, (especially if your flights at a ridiculous time), but the thing is, wear heels! My logic is, if you're wearing a pair of your heels that you will be taking with you... there's more room and weight in your suitcase! The chunkier and heavier, the better! Plus they look good and gets your holiday vibes brewing!
Here's how I styled it!
WEDGES: Topshop £45
BLAZER: Zara £70
SATCHEL: Asos £25
NECKLACE: Adorning Ava £6
I went for a simple pair of tan cross over wedges from TOPSHOP.I paired it with a skater style fitted dress, covered in a bright floral print. It's actually SS12 collection from Topshop (a Tulissa fav), but I absolutely love it and paired with the right garments, it looked bang on trend. The blazer pulled the whole outfit together.
EARRINGS: Forever 21 £3.99
I kept jewellery to a minimum with a simple pair of oversized studs and a black geometric necklace. A large bag was essential, therefore the tan satchel from ASOS was perfect...you can't go wrong with a classic hanging off your arm. It fits all your iphones, ipads, kindles, lippy and mascara (oh and passport) in and still in keep with your chic look.
I kept my makeup and hair quite natural, as there's nothing worse than coming off the plane countless hours later with smudgy panda eyes and kinky hair. My key beauty product was my eyebrow pencil from MAC £18. A strong brow defines your whole face, no matter how little makeup you have on. It keeps your face looking defined and perfected without painting your face.
