snug








river island leather sleeved coat
asos spiked necklace
topshop cross ring
swatch watch
tosphop socks

I decided to wear the speckled burgundy t-shirt dress I wore earlier in the week again today as I just cant resist the colour. I'm making a mental note for Burgundy to be one of my "new" wardrobe go-to colours. It's just such a  flattering and pretty colour. Definitely one of those comfort dressing days today as I've been working all day, although I made a detour to Yo Sushi this afternoon after a meeting which cheered me right up. The weather in the UK at the moment is actually horrific and the idea of leaving my house earlier made me want to weep. This chunky cardigan is such a bargain at £17.99, it's super warm and perfect for cosy layering. So far it's washed really well too which is always my biggest problem with cheap knitwear! I didn't know they did a black one which I might actually buy as well! Overall this isn't my favourite outfit I've worn this week but after being blown halfway across London it was better than being cold!

My friend Kyle is down for the weekend which is going to be fun! I'm going to try and force him to take some outfit snaps for me that are outside the house to mix it up a bit!

  1. This outfit really does look snug! I have that tshirt dress in light grey, dark grey and lilac but I really want burgundy but I'm scared it'll clash too much with my red hair so I'm jealous, you wear it so well! xo

  38. I've always loved burgundy, its definitely more *fashionable* now though, I've seen a lot of "oxblood" but I think that's just the new term for it. Stupid fashion words.

  48. You seriously have the best accessories. Every single piece you're wearing is so perfectly badass. Your jacket is beautiful: grungy but just polished enough. I adore those leather sleeves.

    May the force be with you.
