British Summertime (OOTD)

 Top - Urban Outfitters
Tennis Skirt - Via Depop
Cardigan - Brandy Melville
Shoes - Dr. Martens
Not sure if this outfit is the most sartorially elegant, but it is definitely suited for the warm temperatures and incredibly stuffy rides on the tube. I managed to get the skirt for only about £20 from a seller on the Depop app, instead of paying a ridiculous amount for the American Apparel version.
 Although going on abroad during the summer, staying in London is something to look forward to too. Despite the fact that the air conditioning on the tubes hardly ever work and there are a swarm of tourists blocking every Central London street and stopping to take pictures at every waking moment, there is so much to go to, to see and to do (e.g. Notting Hill Carnival, Hyde Park, or generally exploring the city).
Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Summer Makeup + Playlist

We haven't done a makeup post in what seems like nearly a century so here is a look that is perfect for summer (especially for a simple evening look). It is not extremely heavy or dramatic which makes it great for the hot weather.
 1) Use concealer to cover up spots and imperfections
 2) Fill in your eyebrow with either eyeshadow (which matches it's natural colour) or brow gel
 3) Add a shimmery beige eyeshadow on the whole eyelid (and blend out to the crease)
 4) Use a darker eyeshadow (or the bronzer you will use later on) on your outer lid and blend with the previous colour
 5) Add mascara to top it all off
 6) To finish off, highlight and contour your face (you can use bronzer or a contour kit for this)
We also have some songs that we are listening to this holiday:
We hope you enjoyed this post and enjoy the rest of the summer,
