Musings: My Kinda Nudes…

I’ve been recently inspired by all things ‘nude’, you might think I’m being over the taupe (see what I did there). There is something so beautiful and elegant about wearing nude, beige, caramel tones, whether it be on your nails, clothing or shoes. When you think spring or summer, it is ingrained in our brains to think ‘oh I can start wearing colour now’, inspiring you to spring clean and bring back out those pastel tones.

Don’t get me wrong, I love colours but lately I’ve been going through a phase of my staple tones with clothing and nails. I’ve been opting to wear mostly all black with hints of grey, navy, khaki or white (occasionally oxblood). Spring/Summer 2015 is going to see me sticking to this no matter how hot it gets as I really do find it difficult to wear bright colour. I would rather wear bright blue eyeliner than a bright blue cami top.

This is my take on the nude look for this Spring/Summer – my nail polish is ‘Tickle my France-y’ from OPI and the lipstick is Mac’s ‘Spirit‘.

A Little Bit About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
