Winter Blues

Hat | Primark
Top & Skirt | H&M
Boots | Unif

This weekend's weather has officially been miserable, wet and just generally crap! It can be so easy to get into a routine of wearing jeans, boots and jumpers when the weather is constantly like this; don't get me wrong it is extremely comfortable and looks nice, but can be a bit repetitive and boring after a while.

 So I have been trying to jazz up my every day outfits and found this long maxi skirt a winner for replacing my trusty skinny jeans! It obviously isn't as warm as jeans, but is a great alternative when going shopping indoors or out for lunch. Teamed with a sparkly high neck crop top and my trusty platform boots and i'm good to go.

With the weather turning and already having suffered from a nasty cold, I have noticed my skin isn't looking too great lately. I love a good highlighter and felt this is what my skin needed to bring it back to life! (As well as a face mask from Lush) So after rummaging through my make-up box for some inspiration I came across my Benefit Rockateur blush powder. I haven't used it in a while so thought i'd give it a whirl! I'm so glad I did as I forgot how great this highlighter powder is. Just one sweep over each cheek is all that's required to get an instant natural glow.

I'm a witch...duh

Dress | MXCI
Shoes | Dolls Kill
Hat | Miss Selfridge
Lipstick | Limecrime

When is there a more appropriate time of year to wear this amazing 'Season of the witch' dress than around Halloween? The talented Georgina Verity, owner of MXCI, has launched an amazing A/W collection. Gothic colours and pentagram detailing combined with 70's flares and velour textures sums up the brand, which is all designed and handmade by Georgina herself. This dress goes perfectly with my 'Ballet Bae' Dolls Kill platforms; a winning witchy combination!
