Velvet and Cats

Blouse - Zara (old)
Velvet skirt - Ark
Shoes - Iron fist
Necklace - New Look

Here is an everyday outfit that I would wear, well did wear. Even though it is getting cold I never stop wearing skirts and dresses. I am not a jeans girl, it is a rarity to see me in jeans. So I purchased this skirt at the end of winter sale last year for like £6, I really love the colour, I'm obsessed with velvet I love it so much, especially around this time of year, my wardrobe has many a velvet piece mainly skirts and dresses. Also how cool are these shoes? These were purchased at the end of summer in the sale and I love them, they are  really different.

My shopping ban has finally finished! Well primark got the better of me and since then I have been buying so I will do a little shopping haul post soon so you can see my purchases!

Hope you've liked my outfit.

Glitter nails

Base coat - Topshop matte nails
Top coat - Models own 

So seems the season to be jolly is quickly approaching I thought I would paint my nails a lovely red glittery colour. I received this models own nail polish at an event I recently went to and I will now be buying more Models own! I am very impressed. It stays on so well for a good couple of days, with my track record it's pretty good! The topshop matte nails base coat (which I borrowed off my housemate) is pretty good as well, one coat and it was enough. 

Have you tried topshop or models own before? Any you can recommend?

So you may or may not know that I am on another shopping ban! I was on one before during the summer which lasted 83days! Currently I am on day 44, but I decided that on the 1st December I can buy again! It is the month of Christmas after all and presents need to be bought. Even though I haven't been buying I did do some browsing to compile this little wish list! There are soooo many lovely items around at the moment and of course I want them all!!!

I hope you like my selection of things! Have you ever had to put yourself on a shopping ban?

Tartan curlys

Skirt and blouse - New Look
Hat - Primark

So after I took these photos I sort of realised that I didn't put any shoes on!!! Rookie mistake. When I did put shoes on I put on my creepers. I love wearing chunkier shoes with skirts and dresses, it looks so much better (in my opinion). I wore this outfit to go to a friends house for a little gathering and a delicious roast dinner. A skirt isn't always best when eating is involved due to my stomach expanding but it wasn't bad, I don't think the multiple glasses of prosecco helped either :) 

I really like this outfit, I bought this tartan skirt in the summer and this was the first time I've worn it. Also I wasn't sure about the bowler hat so in the end I decided against it. And for the first time in forever I curled the ends of my hair which I don't understand why I don't do more often due to it taking 5 minutes! 

Well I hope you liked my outfit.

Pinafore and stripes

Pinafore - Primark
Top - Primark
cut out Boots - New Look
Necklace - ThisCharmingGirl (now closed down)
Bow - Boots

So I will start with an apology for featuring another pinafore and also the terrible photos. I took them after a very long day at university so my face is super gross so please ignore it. I'm going to try and stay away from pinafores and cut out boots on my blog from now but it isn't a promise I can keep due to my wardrobe being full of pinafores...

So I haven't been feeling very great about my blog recently, my motivation levels are very low right now. I think it's because of my university work load getting in the way! Hopefully it should get better. Any advise for getting my blogging motivational levels back up?

My Halloween.

So this was my Halloween experience this year. I went to a house party and I was impressed that pretty much everyone dressed up! My outfit this year was on the rubbish side, the effort was pretty low. I ran out of time I was meant to back comb my hair etc but oh well. The last photo I think is my favourite! The balloon makes it that little bit more creepy! Did you get up to anything for Halloween? What did you dress up as?
