What I Wore: Ship lost at sea.

Dress: New Look.
Cardigan: Boohoo.com
Nail Polish: Revlon Purple Petal.
This is a bit of a cheat post because I took these pictures a week or so ago when the weather was still lovely and warm, hence no tights! As I look out of my window now however it's dull, grey and very windy. Yuck! This dress is one that I will be wearing all through the colder seasons with chunky knit, a pair of thick tights and my lovely new boots that I found in good ol' Primark last week.

Although my skin is very warm toned, I can't help but be attracted to silver jewellery. There's something about it that's more appealing than gold to me but I'm not exactly sure what it is.

My make up has been pretty much the same for the last couple of months, I think I'm stuck in a bit of a rut. My lips have been so dry and chapped lately that lipstick just looks ick on me so I've been opting for a strong cheek instead. Since discovering carmex is the culprit of my horrible lips I've switched back to The Body Shop lip butters which are so lovely. Hopefully they'll be all better before my exciting package of lipsticks arrive, I may have gone a bit nuts on the Asos mid-season sale. Whoops.

My accidental Asos make up purchase aside I think I'm falling a little out of love with make up and more in love with clothes. Maybe it's the change of season or maybe it's because I'm surrounded with gorgeous clothes at work but I've decided I need more clothes. The only problem is, I'm not quite sure where to start, I'm a bit lost fashion-wise I think. Help!

Have you started building your winter wardrobe yet? What are your key must-have pieces for the upcoming seasons and which shops have you been particularly impressed with at the moment?

  3. Cute dress! :) And that pink blush looks pretty too!



  4. Gorgeous! Love the dress, and the blush!

    Interesting about the Carmex, I normally use it, but this autumn if I've put it on before bed then my lips wake up worse than when I fell asleep!
