Hi guys, so today I have an outfit of the day, but todays is very different.

Last Wednesday I did some modelling for my friend Raul for his A level Photography, so I thought id share some pictures he took and I could make it into some sort of outfit of the day. It was quite a fun experience and I would like to do it again, even though I don't think i'm the most photogenic person ever haha!

Raul told me I should wear something that shouts me all over, my clothing style is different a lot of the time so it's hard to say what my fashion sense is ? So for today i decided to dress my self in something very warm and layer up a lot, as that's my favourite bit about winter.




 Firstly I decided to wear my favourite shirt from Urban Outfitters, I just absolutely adore the collar on it and I feel it's perfect to wear under jumpers. I then decided to wear it with this jumper, it's very oversized but I LOVE wearing it in the winter, as it just has that winter feel to it ? Even though it's oversized I still feel it looks good on! I brought it from a shop in Brighton Lanes called Dirty Harry a couple of years ago and i still love it. WOW.. it feels weird thinking it was 2 years ago, time flies by fast! I know it may seem like it looks too much together, but this is just me! Finally to finish the whole outfit off I style it with my dungarees from Beyond Retro, I just feel an outfit like this looks perfect with some added denim and this is the perfect way to go.



 Then for Jewellery I am wearing my choker from Ebay, which I have come to notice a lot of people wear it at college, so looks like it's the rage at the moment hehe. But it is definitely worth getting, it's so cheap!

I don't know why but when I wear earrings, I constantly wear them in odd pairs.  In this picture you can only see one though. This one is a cross earring from Topshop, which i've had for years! But i've never stopped loving it.



I think it's a bit cold for me personally to wear this out at the moment, however it wasn't too bad wearing these tights home after the shoot. These are my favourite tights i've ever owned they're such a statement piece, i got them for christmas so i'm not exactly sure where they're from, forgive me if i'm wrong but I think they're from New Look? But you must buy a pair if you don't have something similar already, they will always manage to spice an outfit up.

Lastly, we have shoes and socks YAY! So I am wearing my creepers with a Dalmatian print design,which I ADORE! Yes you may say I'm probably wearing a lot of my favourite items in my wardrobe. A lot of people dislike creepers which I have spoke to but personally I love them, maybe it's a love passed on in my family? But I must say I feel they look perfect with dungarees, they do match with a lot though. For socks i am wearing my baby blue socks from Topshop,another one of my favourites. I feel so preppy. I feel these socks look perfect with creepers or even ankle boots, just so you have enough to see the ruffle at the top.

Dresses Have other Purposes Too

Dresses Have other Purposes Too

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.



So with the dress there is no reason why I can't wear a skirt, as long as the dress is hidden and not showing through, it looks perfect together. So I decided to wear my denim skirt from beyond retro, Beyond Retro is a vintage store based in a few places in England, one of which is Brighton. You can still find many skirts like this, although it won't be the exact same. You may even be able to find many similar ones in high street stores such as Topshop, New Look, H&M etc..
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.
