silver







H&M oversized jumper*
primark jacket
topshop allegera boots (similar here)
topshop nail polish and ciate sequin manicure*

These Topshop Boots were firmly attached for the best part of last year however I've hardly worn them this season. I think I prefer less height in my boots at the moment, but for some reason I pulled these out of my wardrobe and then instantly fell back in love. Topshop Allegeras became the "it" blogger shoe choice and have since been duped to hell and back. These ones from ebay are pretty cheap dupes if you wanted to get the look for less! I really have to start wearing these more as I do really like them!

I went for a super metallic-y outfit for some reason despite the fact all I've done is run errands and go to the post office. I might try and persuade the girls to go out for festive drinks or something just so I have an excuse to wear this outfit out! There is nothing like a bit of sparkle the week before Christmas! I normally wear this Monki Skirt when I go out with a tshirt or a body suit but I actually quite like how it looks layered with something more casual, if you aren't as sparkly as me a black jumper would have looked nice too. I think metallic accents paired down with black or a neutral colour is the perfect way to get the look without being over the top.
