Greyscale...

 The last time I wore this skirt it was much warmer, so this time I wore longer sleeves to combat the winter chill. I thought the dove grey of this blouse added a more wintry feel to the skirt which I loved, even if I am wearing all Topshop!  I can't wait for the warmer weather though, I think this blouse would look fab with the green for Spring...

Blouse: Topshop, skirt: Topshop, boots: New Look
The detailing on the front of this shirt is absolutely gorgeous and handily makes it much more wearable as it is less sheer on the front, meaning that I will be able to wear it for work too! 


I bought these shoes with a Christmas voucher in the hope that I would have a pair of party shoes that I would actually be able to walk in! ;)


For me, the best part of wearing a maxi skirt is how freeing it is, especially in such a vibrant colour, it just demands that you have fun! Hence the 'flying' being done whilst perched on a rock...

What. A. Fool.

I  leave you with what has to be my favourite Christmas present, a cute crocheted phone case in the shape of an owl from Mark. What more could you ask for?!

How would you wintrify this skirt? What was your favourite Christmas present?

I'm actually in love with the shoes, from the first picture I thought they were the nude version of my own new look beauts but I think I prefer these! The wedges make them look a lot less deadly than mine
