I wore this outfit on Sunday and it’s one that I had been planning to wear for a while, but I was waiting for the right temperature. It’s either been too hot or too cold to wear this, but Sunday seemed to be just right. I will say though that it’s the first time I’ve actually started feeling Autumn in the air. There’s a brisk chill that has been making my nose turn that shade of pink which always lets me know the season has changed.
I got this dress from Topshop quite a few months ago when it was in the sale. It’s not something that I would usually choose to wear as I’m not always that comfortable in bodycon dresses, but when I saw the floral print and how vibrant it was, I just completely fell in love with it. It’s unfortunately sold out, but you can definitely buy similar floral dresses online at Shopbop. I quite like the way it’s gradient and transitions from a lighter set of colours down to darker tones. I decided to throw my white Zara blazer over my shoulders just to add some structure to the look and then opted for my Kelya nude heels that you recently saw in another outfit post. I was going to go with my black Pigalle, but the contrast was just too harsh.
Now for my accessories, I wore various gold bracelets, a gold cross necklace and a blue topaz ring, all from Topshop. I also chose my beetle brooch from the brand as I hadn’t worn this yet either, despite having it for months. I love the iridescent body that it has and I thought it went well with the floral print on the dress. For those interested in my make-up too, I’m wearing my usual Barbara Panagos foundation, my Benefit They’re Real mascara with 3D fiber lashes on top and my lipstick is a combination of Pixi brilliance balm in red and a deep red/purple gloss. You can see more on make-up routine here, but I wouldn’t say I’m as into make-up as a lot of other fashion bloggers are.
And on a final note, I’m getting my hair cut on Thursday (it’s definitely been ages and has become unmanageable) and I’m going shorter. I’m thinking of getting about 4 inches or so cut off and my fringe put back in on the side, but quite a lot shorter. I also want some blonde highlights, but I hate sitting for ages while I have those so I wont have them done yet. Don’t forget to enter my Somerset Toiletry Company giveaway though!
