Jubilee Outfit #2 - Red, White & Blue Ribbons & Leeds Castle Celebrations.

Good evening my lovelies, as promised here is my second jubilee outfit (and sadly, my final, as I didn't manage to take pictures of my third!). I wore it for my girls' day out trip to Leeds Castle to watch an open air screening of Grease, Fireworks, & a montage of Her Majesty's 60 years as Queen, with the besties:


Dress: H&M
Belt: M&S
Cardigan: New Look
Tights: M&S
Shoes: New Look

Eek! Sorry for such awful, awful pictures but I was in a rush as I was already running late and these were the best pictures I could snag before leaving! I went for this ribbon pattern dress not only because it had the red, white, and blue colour scheme but also because I just thought the pattern was quite fancy & festive in itself!

For make-up I went golden with 'Half Baked' for a touch a of royal glamour myself:



I also went for the fifties flicked eyeliner, and a little bit of 'Smog' eyeshadow on the outer corners to emphasise my eyes a little more. I've found myself quite regularly using a lighter and darker colour on my eyes now to make them pop a little bit more on the weekend, not a huge contrast that is saved more for special occasions or going out, but just that hint of smoky eye look to get a little bit more of a wide eye look.

And just as a throw in at the end, some pictures from the Leeds Castle Extravaganza! It was an awesome day exploring Kent, and even though it was cold & rained, watching Grease on a massive screen with your best friends and a picnic (including Baileys Hot Chocolate) made it an ideal way of celebrating!







What did you do to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee? Did you try and style to match it?

Love,
