jumper: primark
coat: topshop
necklace: primark
skirt: ebay
rings:jwlry & market stall
nails: beauty uk smokey lilac* & silver glitter* & ebay nail gems

Bought this skirt off ebay on a whim after seeing Victoria post about them ages ago and it'd been sitting in my watched items for a few months now. Decided on the wine colour as I thought it would be nice for A/W, its much more purple toned than these photos, my camera isnt very good at picking up red tones for some reason. But its a gorgeous colour wine-y burgundy colour in real life and I cant wait to wear it more! Couldnt resist posing in my new fur coat as well, despite staying inside for most of the day and I was already wearing a jumper so I was a bit hot! My coats a size 10 for anyone thinking of buying it, I can fit a jumper under it too without being too snug!

Couldn't decide if I needed a necklace or not at first so hence why I'm not wearing one in some photos. Sometimes its nice to take photos of a outfit and step back and think "does this work? can I add to it/make it better". Its useful sometimes when picking outfits and pairing new things together. I often wear things, take photos and think "wait this is all wrong". I think a photo is easier to judge if something works or not than a mirror!

In other news today I made a cheesecake and had a good hair day so I did a happy dance.

  11. Lovely look - i'm definately lusting after that coat atm.
    Question: Is that the natural wave of your hair or do you curl it? If so with what?

  13. The skirt is the perfect color for autumn and I love the knit jumper you paired with it. Looks very similar to this T by Alexander Wang one I just bought recently ! I think you should do one of those "get ready with me" videos on youtube as I'd love to see your beauty routine and how you do your hair ! x

    PS: Enjoy that cheescake !

  29. So agree with you on the mirror vs photo thing. Its like looking at yourself but not through your eyes, if that makes sense?? Haha.
    I adore this skirt jumper combo, suits you so well (ps can I just say caroline flack has totes been stealing your look, have a word! LOL) love this skirt too xx

  30. Trying to unconvince myself that I need a new skirt for A//W, you have proved that I was initially right! I shall go skipping down to Topshop asap!

  31. Definitely have to pick up that skirt !
    I want a pair of burgundy shorts, either with a scallop detail or just high waisted ! Still looking :(
    It's just such a lovely color don't you think :D?

  32. Yay happy dance for good hair day and cheese cake times!
    Love the skirt :) I think you can pull just about anything off. If i wore that coat i'd look like a bear or an ewok. I think it's cause of my face? Or maybe my height? Who knows! My point is I can't get away with fur coats but you can :) HOORAY!
    You look lovely as usual :D xx

  46. As I was looking through the pictures and saw the jumper I went 'ooh that jumper is lovely, I wonder where it's from... probably Topshop or somewhere else where I can't exactly justify the prices' but it's from Primark! Yes! I'll have to pick that up, it looks so snug.
    Lovely fur coat too, looks fab on you.

  48. The coat looks amazingly cozy- I love a bit of faux fur. It's wicked to have something that looks cool but is also warm, functional and even a bit glamorous.

    Hope November is treating you well too.

    Cheers,
