So 2014 has began and I am back to grips of blogging again, I hope everyone had a fabulous new year and Christmas. For christmas i would usually ask for money to spend in the sales but this year I wanted to be surprised and I defiantly got some surprises, How was your christmas?
Starting off this year has been extremely cold but that is no reason for not wearing skirts and dresses. I think winter is still a great time to pull it off,although I would advise to wear thick tights and leggings, because then you never get cold. As long as your layering up, anything could work!
Underneath what I am wearing is a dress which i got from Urban Outfitters, I thought the collar and pattern on the dress would look lovely underneath a jumper and can really spice up an outfit. I think dresses can have many purposes not just to wear alone, although it may be harder to dress ones with no collar. But you could even put a skirt over a dress, so the dress could be used as a top, this all depends on how it looks and what works best with it.
Now i decided to pair this dress with my Topshop knit jumper, I feel a jumper like this is a wardrobe essential, as it's very simple and you can wear it with just about everything.
I'm not the one to wear patterns with patterns, as I feel it is too much and looks a bit crazy when they're together. But I wore this tartan scarf as I feel the dress only has a small amount of pattern showing and you need something like this to really finish the outfit and make it more interesting and of course to make you warmer.
But I feel this looks very well with everything as the denim really contrasts well, it also adds a whole new texture.
I absolutely adore this russian hat, it was the only thing I got to purchase in the sales. It's so warm and fluffy. It's defiantly a statement item as its quite big. I had my eye on it before christmas and luckily Urban had it in there sale, RESULT! But It defiantly goes well with what I am wearing in the sense of the colours contrast perfectly with the coat the creams go with the collar and then the browns go with the whole coat, I think this year is defiantly the year for these hats.
Lastly, i am wearing my mary-jane shoes from Office , the ones I have linked are very similar but there are lots of places selling really nice ones, for example Topshop,have these really nice ones, which are a little cheaper! I'm sorry my socks are really un-neat in this picture but they're probably getting a bit old and tatty now, maybe an excuse to get some new ones, especially the cute ones from Topshop! ;)
The ones i am wearing are actually from New Look, which is much cheaper than Topshop, but you can even get much better prices at Primark.
Anyway, I will be blogging more and more soon,so keep your eye out and I hope you have a great weekend.
