Attempting Nudes

This is my nude look. I don't think I own a lot in nude shades, apart from a few heels, so I was excited to try this out when I got this pale pink dress.

The dress is Paprika (from a goody bag) and the shoes/necklace are Matalan. I love the anchor necklace, just like I love all nautical things. Isn't is pretty? It was sent yesterday from Matalan, along with a Summer goody bag (which also included a beach bag, towel and sunglases), to celebrate the aunch of the Summer TV (25th May)The dress is actually a size 14!! I'll be honset, I wasn't too impressed when I saw that, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway, especially as it came with a belt.

And my ring: the infamous House of Harlow key ring. After over a year of loving from afar, I finally bought it. Asos had it down to £27, which is still a lot, but I figured it wasn't going to get cheaper anytime soon, so I took the shopping plunge.But I think you're definitely allowed to splurge if you've wanted something for so long. Anyway, no regrets, as it's awesome!

What do you think? Are you a Nude fan?

You look so lovely in this dress- I'd never have guessed it was way too big for you, so the belt trick definitely works!
Love the ring, too- I'd say £27 is a bargain for HOH, and especially if you've wanted it forever!

I think this look really suits you. The dress is so cute and those shoes rock!
The ring is a bargain if you've wanted it for a long time and you'll wear it a lot.

Susie said...

Oooh! I want that ring! it's so pretty! I can't believe you managed to make a size 14 dress work--you are my fashion hero--it looks gorgeous@

You look incredible Sherin! The colour really suits you and I love those heels.
If you'd been wanting the ring for ages then you were definitely allowed to get it. I just ttok the plunge and spent a ridiculous amount of money on some Sam Edelman boots, but I'd been wanting them for three years, so I figured my purchase was more than justified!

Rachel said...

It still looks amazing on you, in spite of the size!

Harriet said...

So glad you splurged and got the House of Harlow ring - I remember meeting up with you and Leia at the My Wardrobe press days aaaages ago and us all loving it!

Meream said...

You look so pretty! One of my fave looks from you, for realz. :)

Shybiker said...

A lovely look on you. The colors suit you. I recently bought a pair of heels just like yours.

Tootsie Jean said...

Natasha said...

I think you look lovely. I've never really worn nudes before, but I would like to try out an outfit like this. I love that House of Harlow ring, it's beautiful. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, very whimsical. And Game of Thrones is amazing, and I can't believe the season finale of V! Have you seen it yet? xxx

Oh Sherin, I think this is one of my favourite outfits of yours, you look great in nude! (haha, I know that sounds a bit funny if read a certain way).

Ashley said...

The nude shade looks just perfect on you! xx

Abby said...

FIRST) I have to admit, when I first read that title, I was thinking... ya know... noodz. And now I feel like a creep.

SECOND) That is an AMAZING look. You look so delicate!

THIRD) I am very jealous of that anchor necklace!

PinkBow said...

you are so stunning sherin! you suit these ladylike looks too. i love the dress & actually think the size is best like this as it appears more drapey.

Susu Paris Chic said...

Nude shades really look glowing on you. They bring your skin color to even a prettier - if possible - life.

Style Eyes said...

Pale pink really suits you. I love some shades of nude but pale pink just makes me look really washed out.

Savvy Gal said...

i am a fan of beige/nude. Usually I will add a pop of color to spice the outfit up.

WeShop said...

The dress in no way looks like a 14!! With the belt, it looks fab on you - a perfect fit. And the colour tone is gorgeous. xx

annie said...

This looks absolutely amazing on you!. I have tried all nude...but for some reason I never can bring myself to go more than a few hours wearing it. My body just has a desire to wear something dark. lol

I love every piece. First when I was reading that you got a dress in a goodie bag I was like, cool, but how did they know your size?! lol...

The dress looks like it fits well, even though it is a 14. :) But you def. need to wear it with that belt, I'd say. :)

And the ring is AMAZING! Glad you like your purchase even if it was spendy!

xoxo Have a great great great day Sherin!

danniekate said...

but you look so puuuurdy! i love the nude trend, i have a bazillion blouses in camel-ly tones :) xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

How can this be a size 14? It looks pretty perfect on your tiny size frame. Yeap, I totally love Nude colours... I think they always look subtle and interesting.

Elle Enchanted said...

You look sooo beautiful in that nude tone Sherin! I love it. It totally works for you- really complements your coloring and such haha. And that ring is AWESOME.

Kristin said...

That color is perfection on you! And I love the pumps too!

rebecca said...

Nude looks fabulous on you! That dress is stunning. And I love your ring!

Kavery said...

The all-nude colours look very good on you though I don't think that's a size 14!! Love the ring - def worth the money.

Cee said...

That dress is a size 14? That's unbelievable!! We have a lot of problems with vanity sizing in North America. American brands are particularly bad for it; every year, the measurements of their sizes get bigger by half an inch. It sounds Paprika has taken the opposite approach :( In spite of what the tag says, though, this dress looks fabulous on you, and I love the contrasting nude heels you've paired it with. Gorgeous!
