This is one of those outfits that can take you from the day to the evening quite easily. During the day, it’s a simple outfit of a pale grey cashmere jumper and dark grey skinny trousers. For the evening I added a silver/grey jacket, a grey statement necklace, boots with a bit of sparkle on the back and a clutch bag. I wore this to the ballet and whilst heels would have made it slightly dressier, there was a risk that I was going to have to carry our 6 year old from the theatre to the car, which would have been a disaster in heels.
One way to take your outfit into the evening is to add a darker lipstick. For today’s gift I’m showing you the Bobbi Brown art stick in electric pink (£19.50). I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago and for me it’s a real winner. It comes in eight shades and being like a big, fat crayon, it’s easy to apply. It’s also easy to increase the depth of colour by layering it up. Equally, I use it in the day time but I apply a layer of gloss first as that makes it slightly lighter, more sheer and less heavy than otherwise.
Anyone hit the sales yet? They’re everywhere with some more biggies starting soon, so keep your eyes open!
