Feeling like a million dollars...

Anyone who has ever read this blog knows that I will take any opportunity to get all dressed up and this outfit was the perfect accompaniment to our meal at Jamie's. I don't always wear all black but when the textures and fabrics are this fun, how can you resist? I felt like a million dollars in this outfit and I really wanted to celebrate that with these pictures. I mean confidence is always worth celebrating, amirite?! For full luxury vibes I paired my outfit with this gorgeous camel coat which I got off Mark for my birthday, it may be brighter but it is still chilly out there! The length of this coat can be a pretty tricky one when you are as short as I am but paired with heels or slim trousers, it works quite nicely.

Coat: H&M (gift from Mark), top: ASOS, skirt: Monki, shoes: Whistles via eBay
I couldn't believe just how pale I ended up looking in these pictures, I suppose the contrast helps the black look more dramatic?! It took me so long to find a top that went with the skirt, I knew I wanted something simple but everything was either too fussy or just outright boring, at least it was until I found this twist neck top at ASOS. It is now on sale (typical) and I am tempted to get it in a couple of colours. It is pretty short in the body but I have a lot of high-waisted skirts that this will look ace with! I didn't realise how creased this skirt was until I saw these pictures, does anyone know the best way to iron tulle?!


Just look how jazzy that neckline is! I recently treated myself to a couple of new lipsticks and this L'Oreal Liya Pure Red is my new favourite. It is a really bright red with pinky undertones (although it's nowhere near as pink as the Julianne red!) and it was the perfect statement lip.


This Monki tulle skirt is just dreamy and although the midi length was a bit challenging to style, I really love it. Tulle anything is always a winner in my book and the length means it was perfect for swooshing round in! This skirt was also the perfect foil for my gorgeous Whistles Dana sandals, they are just a dreamy combination together! I can't wait to wear them in the summer, won't they look great with this smock dress? They are a pretty high heel but the caged element makes them slightly easier to walk in, I will just have to get in a bit of practice before I next wear them! ;)

Maria, thank you for your lovely comment! It certainly made me smile. I love how you've used such a limited colour palette here, the basics really add to the drama and make for one classy outfit. Loving the lipstick! I don't really wear lipstick, but have recently been very tempted to try some new make up! Especially MAC! I'm adding this lipstick to my list now too! xx

Ah Maria you look gorgeous! I don't have many items in my wardrobe that are super fancy, but I do have a pair of ankle boots with gold glitter at the heel which always make me feel great on a night out :)
