Poppy red...

When I first put this outfit together I wasn't even consciously thinking about Remembrance day but as I added red accessories and pinned on my poppy , it was obviously at the forefront of my mind. I think it is so important to remember those who have participated in whatever way in any conflicts and to honour their memory. 

Dress: NW3 by Hobbs, shoes: ASOS, bag: NW3 by Hobbs
Once again, Hobbs came up trumps when I was searching for a cosy jumper dress, this one was reduced to a very reasonable £29 in the sale and I fell in love with it as soon as it arrived. It is definitely one of those outfits that looks better in real life as all the photos made me look much heavier, but the chunky knit was so cosy I didn't even mind! 


The gold buttons added to the nautical styling which I ended up picking up with the vibrant red accessories...


I honestly don't think I could love this bag any more. It is just so RED AND SHINY! 


I call these my dancing shoes. They are super thin satin so aren't the most comfortable or practical but red shoes traditionally marry pleasure with pain


I am slowly weaning myself back on to lipstick (after going through a phase where I wore it all the time) and this red lipstick is perfect for the colder weather. Rimmel have come up trumps again

We will remember them. 
What do you wear in the colder weather? Do you have a pair of 'dancing shoes'?
