Moroccan inspired...

I have noticed recently that I keep buying outfits that I would love to have worn when I was younger.  This Warehouse dress was (another) sale bargain and although it is ridiculously short (I didn't realise just how miniscule the skirt was until I saw these pictures) I really love it. I am more than happy to be getting older (hopefully the wisdom is on its way soon!) I am a little bit worried that I look a bit like mutton dressed as lamb, I don't think I can really pull off short skirts anymore but I imagine my grey cable knit tights would look pretty nice with this and help to tone down the shortness of it all too...

Dress: Warehouse, necklace: Accessorize, tights: Tesco, boots: gift from my parents
I am hoping to share some of my favourite lipsticks on the blog over the next couple of weeks and this Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lippie (shade 06 FYI) is sure to make an appearance. I picked it up for a couple of quid at Boots before Christmas and I have no idea why it was reduced as it was brand new and untouched. Ah well, Boots loss is my gain!


I have had this necklace for years (how young do I look in this outfit post?!) and it was the perfect way to tie in my brown accessories without distracting from the pattern too much. I wasn't entirely sure how flattering the contrasting bodice would be but it actually sits pretty close to my natural waist so manages to nip me in in all the right places! The print on the skirt reminds me of Moroccan tiles, I blame Pinterest for my new found obsession!


I have had these boots for years- I got them as a gift from my parents for doing well in my GCSEs (an age ago!) and they have lasted remarkably well, I haven't even needed to get them resoled in the 9 years since I have owned them! They always make me feel like I should be in a pantomime - they are pretty swashbuckling and even have a fastening across the back of them but I do love them!

Wow, I'm impressed by how well your boots have lasted. I don't seem to manage to get more than a year or two from a pair of boots. I thinK I walk with a heavy back tread, or something, though so I tend to wear the backs of the soles / heels out quickly.

I think you look lovely and not at all dressed too young Maria! I love Warehouse at the moment - some of my favourite things are from there.

A gorgeous outfit Maria! I love your nail colour too :) x

What a lovely print! I don't think you need to worry about looking like mutton dressed as lamb, Maria, you're still a young thing. I think that label only starts to apply when you're reaching 40!

Love your boots too. I also have brown boots which I've had since my Standard Grades (Scottish GCSE equivalent)and they're still going strong :)
