About Eve WornOut

London mum of 2. I am a size 12, 5"7 and take a size 7 shoe.

Party time

So I threw a party at the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday (I have a few more weeks left before the actual big day)

One of my best friends helped steer me in the right direction to make the space a bit more personal. I ordered the flowers from Bloom & Wild (the Harper Lux), the gold fringed photo wall from Party Delights and the balloons from Not On The High Street (they’re Meri Meri)

When I started thinking about what I wanted to wear I was sure it was a playsuit and probably an item I wanted to splash out on and go designer. I tried tens of them!I was really hopeful about the W118 by Walter Baker Gabby satin playsuit but it didn’t sit right on my tummy at all and gaped at the chest. I tried this black DvF Emerson playsuit too but again, the tummy band made it unflattering. It was really lovely though and is in the Matches sale if you have a less thick waist than me.

I gave up on playsuits and these two dresses were the final contenders. The gold got lots of Instgram thumbs up!In the end, it was too hot for the sequins and true to my High Street roots, I wore a dress from ASOS I got for £11.  ASOS dress, Kat Maconie heels, metallic clutch from Warehouse, J Crew gold and black tassel earrings from the lovely ShoeQueen79.  I changed into trainers when I hit the dance floor! Me and the marvellous Rachel WornOut. My other WornOut lovelies were there too but we were having too much fun to take photos!

I did splash out on some new make up. I am no make up expert but wow, this Tom Ford eye pallet is truly beautiful.I had a trial in a store so that I had an idea of how to blend the colours. I treated myself to the Tom Ford eye primer tooThe rest of my makeup is my usual stuff, Chanel foundation, Guerlain Terracotta bronzer (I wear shade 3), Mac highlighter, Body Shop pink blusher, Charlotte Tilbury eyebrow pencil and By Terry Baume du Rose lipbalm instead of lippy. 

We are having a quiet week in preparation for more partying in Italia. 

Will be back soon. 

Top knot & shorts

Wow it’s muggy in London today! 

I did my last bootcamp of the summer this morning, quick shower and off to the park in my summer uniform of denim shorts, Mango loose cotton blouse, Havaianas and a top knot. Back soon with something a bit more glam. 

Did you know….

I rarely go to Primark (I’ve never got over the rumours about how they clothes are made) but I made an exception yesterday to get a present I know a friend really wants. 

I had a little browse while we were there and I was over the moon to see they stock bra sized bikinis! 

I got these two – the tops were £6 and the bottoms £4. What a bargain!I’m wearing this one today in sunny London Town (in my garden I hasten to add!)

Enjoy the sunshine. 

Summer clothes

We had a lovely inpromptu few days in the sunshine. It was very relaxed break so I don’t have loads of outfit photos. I promise more from my next holiday 🙂It took a while for me to realise I was wearing this Topshop dress the wrong way (the floaty bit is supposed to go around the arms) cue much faffing to get my arms in. I didn’t like how it felt so swapped back. It’s jersey and really easy to wear (my way) A good holiday staple and a lovely blue. This orange dress was from Zara moons ago and has survived several red wine spillages. I do like a bright dress for a summer’s evening. I’m wearing it with old black tasselled sandals. 

I am very pleased with this pyjama suit from H&M and wish they did it in another print. It’s true to size though beware, the top needs a safety pin to stop the button coming undone. This was another top from my H&M smash and grab.  It was £10 I think and I wore it loads. H&M top again with old Gap shorts. I found these loafers that I thought I’d lost just before we went away. Happy days!

I’ve treated myself to some new sandals. I have wanted a pair of the winged Ancient Greeks for years and hit buy as  soon as I saw these black and gold beauties on the Outnet. 

Back soon with more holiday outfit ideas.
