Pretty things I’ve bought lately

I’m really loving all of the colours and fabrics this season – whimsical, pretty pastels seem to have flooded the high street (hey, maybe we really are trendsetters) and I’ve been making the most of it with a little retail therapy. Here are a few of the pretty bits and bobs I’ve bought over the last few weeks.

♥ My shoes are last season’s Accessorize (unfortunately out of stock now) and my skirt is currently on sale for £26 at Dorothy Perkins – I love everything about it, it hangs and moves really well, and it’s a beautiful colour in person.

L'Amoureuse No 47 Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet pink lipstick - Sara Gibbs - Darling Lovely Life - Pretty things I've bought lately

♥ After searching for ages, I finally found my perfect lipstick shade. It’s no.47, L’amoureuse in the Rouge Allure Velvet collection, £26 at Chanel. It’s amazing how a splash of colour in the right place can totally highlight the rest of your features. My headband is £24 from Anthropologie (warning, there are lots and lots of pretty headbands in Anthropologie at the moment – enter at your peril!)

♥ My blouse is from Primark, a real gem as it’s so versatile. Great for office wear, or tie it up and pair with lots of boho-style necklaces for a summer look. It’s sheer enough to wear over a bikini too. Love it.
