Guess what? It's Maria wearing stripes and red lipstick again! I know, this has been a bit of a uniform for me for many years now but when they look so good together, who can resist?! I picked up this cute striped dress on my lunch break (working in town is lethal!) and wore it into work the next day. I have no self control and new clothes are the hardest thing to resist. I love the 1960s shape of this and I felt pretty darn cool in this outfit. It was also super fun to wear which is always a good thing! I couldn't believe that I was resorting to thick tights so early in the year but I guess summer never really got started. Autumn is my favourite season (blogger cliché alert!) and I can't wait to try this with black boots and burgundy or green tights once the leaves start to drop! I really wanted to wear my favourite red bag with this outfit but a bag that small is just not practical for work, however cute it is!

This Max Factor lipstick is my absolute favourite, it is just so bright and it matches my red necklace so well. I have had this necklace for nearly a decade and although it's not exactly high fashion, I can't bring myself to throw it away - I just wonder at what point can I call it vintage?!
I was worried about this being a little bit short but some trusty black opaques and my beloved block heel shoes made me feel much more comfortable. I have quite short legs so anything that helps them look longer is a winner in my book!
What's your uniform?
