Dark floral

Top, Skirt, Socks & Earrings - Topshop
Shoes - River Island
Lipstick - Mac
 
Much like every year I find my colour palette has darkened as the days do - with empty trees and grey sky comes my appreciation of all things dark and beautiful. I seem to be wearing mostly black, dark red and grey these days even though I do love a pop of winter pastels (such as my nails). This top and skirt from Topshop are some of my favourite pieces at the moment because the bold patterns stop my winter wardrobe becoming dull, and because I always have a soft spot for florals! I also find myself more and more obsessed with lipsticks to complete a look, especially this dark red from MAC which is perfect for day-to-night outfits. I wore this when I went home for the weekend and went out to lunch with my mum - don't worry, I did wear my new faux fur collar leather jacket over the top to stave off the cold as well!

Winter mint.

 Coat, Top, Skirt & Shoes - Topshop
Mini Satchel - ASOS
Necklace - Vintage
Nails - Maybelline (Mint for Life) and Essie (Jazzy Jubilant)

Sorry for the hiatus in posting, I have been quite ill lately and spent most of my time not looking very fashionable at all! Now I'm back on form I'm intending to keep posting regularly (even though getting photos in winter can be hard), starting with this outfit from last week. I'd say winter has set in, especially in Birmingham, so I had to buy a new coat! I love the faux fur collar on this Topshop beauty because it makes it a bit more interesting than a standard leather jacket, while the black keeps it versatile - I've been wearing it with everything lately! Finally, while I've retired quite a few of my summer pieces (sadly!) I am refusing to completely abandon my pastels, which look very fresh and clean in winter. I'm also having fun with my nails at the moment - we've got to have something to keep our minds off the fact it gets dark at practically mid-afternoon..
