body in a box

outfit of the day
how to wear
what i wore
highstreet clothing
outfits from the highstreet
skirt: topshop (dress worn as skirt)
jumper: primark
jacket: boohoo
collar: ebay (bought it ages ago but these are similar!)
bracelet: black-tied *
rings: jwlry and asos
nails: models own pink punch

Not much to say about this outfit as its pretty basic and to be honest I've been wearing my dressing gown over it as I've been so ridiculously cold. I decided to just throw on a jumper thrown over my current favourite dress and a collar. I bought it off ebay a while ago and they're good for jazzing up a plain jumper or top. I did my hair with the Enrapture Totem Styler, which is absolutely amazing. Im always skeptical about things that do the freebie rounds on blogs but its honestly lovely!

I'm wearing the foundation that I got given at the Estee Lauder event, Invisible Fluid Makeup, Its surprisingly good for a low coverage foundation, very buildable and SO light on the skin. It feels amazing after being a Double Wear girl for so long. I'll do a review of it once I've tried it a few more times, but it photographs beautifully plus Its semi-matte but still very luminous! Going shopping tonight with my flatmates, I have a dress I'm planning to wear out but I'm having second thoughts so hopefully I find one tonight. Im thinking the concessions part of Topshop, fingers crossed!

  24. When I was looking at the pictures one of the first things I thought was "her skin looks beautiful" before I even read that you were wearing a new foundation! Can't believe that jumper's Primark, it looks like the AA fisherman jumpers! x

  34. I have that jumper. Isn't it amazingly warm? I have worn mine more than I should have, so maybe I need one of these funky sparkly collar to make it look somewhat different! Cheers for sharing the link!

  40. I really need to find a collar, been looking around for ages but can't seem to find one that is versatile. I love this one though. It looks so beautiful and livens up a basic outfit!

    You look gorgeous, really love your style.

  42. You looked quite tanned and summery in the first picture! But I'm guessing it's not summer in London when it's freezing in Scotland :/

    And your hair looks gorgeous!

  44. I have that grey topshop dress too - think I've worn it more as a skirt with jumpers over the top more than a dress! Makes it more 0 degrees appropriate!
