Second blogpost of the day! There’s so much to fit in before Christmas, so the panic has started to set in whilst I figure out a way to cram it all in! Taking a tiny break from it all, I popped to my Mum’s house to see Bonnie and Oscar (they are SOOOOOO cute!!!), and they are BFFs now – except for when it’s their dinner time, and both are vying to be the first to be fed! Pets will be pets!
This is an outfit I wore a couple of days ago and it is impossible to wear a dress like this and not give it a nautical twist – a trend I absolutely adored when I was at uni. I ended up accessorising this outfit with a small red leather bag with a chain strap and chose the most un-Christmassy nail polish colour but it’s my all time favourites from Barry M! Bright yellow in winter? Sure, why not!
The dress I am wearing here is an old one from Topshop, from yeaaars ago! There is a similar one on their website at the moment, which I am tempted to buy but I’m not sure if I suit the straight up-and-down style, especially as it’s in a horizontal stripe fabric. Actually, the last time I wore this dress on the blog, I was told that I have wide hips! Ouch! It usually helps when there’s a bit of shape in stripy clothing! Are stripes something you find easy to wear? 
As the weather takes a turn for the worse, you’ll soon see me back in my winter coat (Zzzz! Boring!) Which leads me on to tell you that I bought some cute winter woolies to giveaway so if you’re feelin’ lucky, then head over to the giveaway post to check it all out! 
On a quick side note, I have given Niki a bit of a nudge to start his own blog! I’ve enjoyed being behind the camera, taking his photos, so hop on over his new menswear fashion blog, give it a follow and let us know what you think!

  1. You can't beat a bit of nautical styling! I love the hat worn with the loafers, very pretty 🙂
    Oh and if your hips are wide then Harry Styles isn't famous. Ridiculous.

    Abi xx

  2. I really love that dress, it looks such a cute and versatile piece! Even though the nautical trend's quite old I don't think I'll ever get sick of it, haha 🙂

  3. Ahahahahah I am just like you when it comes to nail polish except year round! I am horrible at going with the season or holiday time when it comes to nail polish colors. For once I actually have holiday appropriate nails. The dress looks lovely on you and the red bag is amazing, I'm in love with it! Your outfit is very cute. 🙂
