   Tailoring, tailoring and more tailoring. I can't get enough. And after this outfit I'm gonna need more suits in my life, preferably from Nasty Gal, as they do amazing styles at super affordable prices. If you've never shopped there before, then I'd definitely recommend that you get yourself over there right now - Well, after you've read this post of course. This look I first wore for my school's end of term ball, and I wanted to go a little different than the previous year, where I wore a 50s style midi skirt and blouse. It was super pretty, but I wanted to be more comfortable yet still quirky in the styling. That's why I decided to go with this suit combo, and teaming it up with a slogan t-shirt to dress it down and add another pop of colour. Yet again, colour is taking over my wardrobe slowly but surely, and the clash of red and green, along with the clash of prints, strangely brings this outfit together. Overall this has become one of my all-time favourite outfits that I've ever worn, oh yeah, we're going there. I just love this blazer, as here it's easily dressed up for the evening, or you can smarten it up for work, and even dress it down with the same t-shirt and a pair of jeans. It's such a versatile piece, and one that will definitely be in my wardrobe for years to come.

   Give me a striped t-shirt, that's red, with frills, and you've got yourself a pretty good combo. This top was actually inspired by Megan Ellaby, a major style inspiration for me in general, and a shopping vlog where she found a similar piece in H&M. I love the shoulder detail on this and the striped neckline, plus the t-shirt itself it quite stretchy making it super comfortable. Of course paired with my favourite red lip, I felt very Parisian with this look, and wanted to keep the rest quite simple with a pair of dark denim MOM jeans and classic, black, Ray-Ban inspired sunnies. To finish the look I decided to clash the red with my trusty yellow bag, which I have posted about many times, and continue to find new ways of styling this piece. Finally, on my feet I went a little controversial with a kitten heel. Now, there's definitely a divide when it comes to this style of shoe, but for me I don't totally hate them when dressed down like this. I think they certainly add a little class to the attire, and I could see this working for a city, lunch-date-type of occasion (For whenever I actually do go on one of those).

   Something you may not know about me, is that I love Drew Barrymore, and she's always been a serious inspiration for me. I think she's an amazing actor, has given us so many iconic styles, and of course 90s movies. But did you know that she also has her own line of make up? Well, I didn't until this year, and it's called FLOWER Beauty - I mean, how pretty! As soon as I came across her brand on Instagram I immediately began having a nosy at some of the products.

   It's great to know that her brand is cruelty-free, and their empowering message of embracing your own individual beauty had me sold. Now, when you first go onto their website, you can actually grab 15% off your first order when you sign up, which is great to know if you're a first timer who just wants to try something out (Like me!). I'm assuming that the brand is also relatively new, since their line of make up isn't too extensive, which can be beneficial as you don't always want to be overwhelmed with choice at the make up counter. So, the only problem here, is that they don't ship to the UK yet! I was admittedly a little sad when I found this out, but I'm hoping soon they'll start delivering here as I'm so curious to try out so many of their products.

   After having a good look, I thought I'd share some of my top picks and fancies with you, just in case any of my American readers are interested. In terms of make up, I'm super intrigued by their Pore Perfect Stick Foundation, as I've never actually tried a stick foundation for myself, and this double-ended stick seems super handy and easy to use. The Glow Getter Liquid Illuminzer also looks incredible, as I've been using more liquid highlight recently under my foundation for an 'inner-glow' type of look. I was also shocked to find that they have sheet masks too, which I'm all for and have my own stash of them. Their Radiance Boosting Sheet Mask looks particularly good, and upon reading I realised that they're made in Korea, which any beauty guru knows that Korean skincare is some of the best around.

   As for their lip range, it was great to see that they had quite a few products to offer, but what stuck out for me was their classic, Petal Pout Lip Color - Especially the red shades in Ruby Rouge and Poppy Pout. All of these lipsticks have either a matte or cream finish too, so have a look to see which catches your eye. To finish off my top picks, as I could be here all day, I really do love their Weekender Cosmetic Bag, with it's bright poppy print and vibrant, electric blue colour - As well as the FLOWER Beauty hardware on the front. And finally, you may want to know that they also have a range of scents in the form of Eau de Parfums and Body Mists. Personally, the fragrance that stuck out for me was their Sunshine scent, as not only do I love the yellow packaging, but it also reminds of the Sunshine scent from Library of Fragrance which I also love.

BROOKLYN

   More colour, equals more fun. And for me it's more colour the better with this outfit, the only thing missing is my H&M Yellow Shoulder Bag, which I've done a feature on HERE before. I'd say that this look is a little more urban and sporty, with the oversized sweatshirt and sock-trainer combo. But with a pair of leopard, block heels and statement earring, it could also be carried on into the evening quite easily. The oversized sweatshirt in particular was something of a spontaneous buy, as I randomly spotted the bright pink at the back of a clothing rail, and noticed it was the last one in the store. Of course I couldn't leave it, and I'm glad that I didn't, as it's become one of my favourite pieces. The detailing of the piping is super quirky, and the clash of green and pink is right up my street. All-in-all, I think we could agree that this is a very 'Megan' outfit. This outfit combination has also been seen among my social media quite a bit, and so I thought it was about to time to give it it's own moment on my blog.
