Peek-a-Boo

Vest Top - H&M | Skirt - Vintage | Slip - Marks and Spencer | Boots - Primark

Summer sure is struggling to take off here in the UK at the moment, it's been so up and down with days of sunshine and 25°C to constant downpours and gusty winds - not so fun.  So when the sun does shine I try and make the most of it and finally had a chance to wear this lovely vintage sheer pink midi skirt.  I've also been really getting into slips recently - there just so darned practical!  I know I sound about 50 right now, but seriously if you try them out, you'll never go back, especially is you find really pretty ones.  

 Nail Polish - Barry M - Dusky Mauve
 Face - MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, Clinique Superbalanced Powder Make-Up | Cheeks - MAC Pinch O Peach | Eyes - inner corner - MAC Blanc Type, rest of lid - MAC Groundwork Paint Pot, MAC Arena eyeshadow, MAC Fluidline Blacktrack | Highlighter - Benifit High Beam

After spying the MAC Bafta event all over blogshphere I immediately fell in love with the more subtle look and decided to give it a go myself with a little twist.  What do you think of the results?

What do you guys think of this kind of FOTD post?  Would you like to see more of this kind of thing?  Do let me know.

I can completely understand you about that crazy weather! In Georgia we always have suuuper hot summers and it is literally 68 degrees outside today! It's nice though :)

I have a green midi skirt that I just love and it's strange how feminine they make you feel even though they're a lot longer and cover up more! Far more respectable :P
