It's strange how your wardrobe changes over the years, I used to live in cute floral dresses but have barely worn them recently. This Oasis dress has been hanging in my wardrobe for a while although I have been waiting for the colder weather to wear it as it is too short to wear without some opaques! I really like the colours and the ditsy print is super cute. I have been having a bit of a crisis of confidence recently and do worry that certain clothes can end up looking a bit 'young' on me. I tried toning down the cutesy factor with some grey tights and a swipe of red lipstick so hopefully this dress doesn't look too ridiculous!

Glamour magazine normally has some pretty cool freebies and this Clinique Cherry Pop Lipstick is a new favourite of mine! It's a pretty pinky-red and goes on really smoothly. It doesn't last very long on me (the perils of constantly eating!) but fades pretty evenly down to a pretty stain so is ideal for when you don't have the time (or inclination) to reapply throughout the day...

I am lucky enough to work right in town and often spend my lunch breaks searching for bargains in the shops. I picked up these beautiful Falke matte tights in TK Maxx and I couldn't be more chuffed. They are super cosy and I love the slate grey colour too- much less harsh than black! I have been trying to soften these beautiful pointed flats for about a year now and although they're still not as comfy as I would like, I am slowly wearing them down ;) They were the perfect choice with this dress as they felt a bit more interesting than my usual block heels and I could speed around town to get my errands done, win win!
How do you avoid looking like you are playing dress up?
