I know right, her ear.
I chose Serena Van Der Woodsen’s damn ear to copy. Of all the things.
I got half way through Gossip Girl whilst at uni and got distracted by the likes of One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy (and soz when I say this, the reason being – they’re better). So, just before Christmas I started up again, which is when I realised that damnnn Serena’s ear look is smokin’.
So yeah, here I am copying it.
The look basically entails scooping all your long blonde hair up into a tousled high ponytail and wearing a statement earring. That is it. But I’ve been struggling to find a statement earring that really shouts out to me for some time. Until these H&M dreamboats.
OK, so I wanted them in green, which were the version I spied online and included in a fashion wish list, but it was these white babies that were lurking in the Ipswich branch, and y’know what? I reckon I’ll get more wear out of them because they’re such a go-with-everything colour.
I picked up this dress whilst in store too, after seeing it online and including it in the same wish list. It’s super light and much more flattering in these photos than I ever expected it to be, which means it’s DEFINITELY coming with me to New York and I’m definitely going to pull the tag out and make it a keeper in my wardrobe. I won’t lie, it’s been sat, neatly folded, in the H&M bag it came in, sitting on my bedroom floor since the day I bought it because I was just so undecided. But I think I like her.
And, for those that have asked before – I use St Tropez mousse on my legs for that tan. Applied every single damn time with a mitt, it’s just such a good shade and such an even coverage. So, erm yeah.
Shoes are new too, from New Look. They’re real leather and super comfy and cheap (£29.99). I sort of assumed they’d hurt and cut my feet after just a few steps for some reason, but nuh uh. The heel is the perfect height for long nights in NYC this summer. I’M EXCITED. SEE YA.
