In celebration of the second and most gorgeous day of spring, I picked (pun intended!) the most densely floral and girly frock from my wardrobe.
The waistline is a bit baggy on this dress so I pulled it in with a pearl belt, and toughened all the frills and femininity with strappy black sandals and a black watch.
If the very thought of baring your legs has you locking yourself in the bathroom, never fear when self-tanner is near! And because I don’t have endorsements on this blog, what you read about here will be my true experience (I’m an honest person so that will still be the case even with advertisers on board!).
Lets start with the Ella Bache tan cream (a freebie attached to a fashion magazine). If you want instant colour then this is a winner but be warned, wash your hands straight after or you’ll have tanned palms! The colour continued to develop and I didn’t notice any tanning odour. The Dove summer glow is a favourite and creates a very natural sun-kissed look – this was my go-to tanner all last spring/summer. Go for the normal to dark skin colour even if you’re fair skinned like me. I’ve just started testing the Palmer’s Natural Bronze tanner so I’ll show you the results tomorrow. At the moment the cocoa butter smell is quite strong, but pleasant.
Baring shoulders is the next BIG thing in fashion so make sure you’re lathering on the sun-screen girls to protect your delicate decolletage.
I’m still recovering from working on a comedy movie on Friday. Called Now Add Honey and starring Portia de Rossi, it’s due for release at the box office in 2014. The AD (that’s assistant director) popped me right next to Portia in one scene, and I was determined to strut my stuff alongside the star! Look out for the on-trend Pantone green top and matching heels – which I paired with my shiny black Sass & Bide jeans.
We were filming the second scene later in the afternoon in the city and the AD again popped me right in front of the lens (loving the background work but can’t wait for the lead roles!). I looked up to see the pastors of my church, Rob and Christie Buckingham, humble television stars in their own right, who were checking out the action. That was definitely a God-incidence.
I’m planning to show you a wardrobe newbie tomorrow – sheer leopard print tank dress! But don’t hold your breath – you know how fickle this fashion thing can be! And now you’re Looking Good Girls.
