A quick trip to Berlin...(PICTURE HEAVY)

Berlin is a city that both Mark and I have wanted to visit for a long time and we finally managed to make the trip. The dates coincided with our anniversary and it was the perfect way to celebrate 11 years together. Both Mark and I studied modern history up to A-level so it was great to see some of the places and history we had learnt about 'in the flesh'. We arrived on Monday morning and flew back out early on Thursday so had 3 full days in the city and it was the perfect amount of time- we had plenty of time to explore but I think any longer would have been unnecessary.

Navy, red and leopard print..

It is slightly boggling to me that we are nearly halfway through May and it is still cold enough to be in all of my winter jumpers and coats, by this time last year I was already well into my summer wardrobe! This jumper dress was another Whistles bargain from eBay and I love it. I always get really warm so the thin wool is perfect as it is warm without being too bulky on me. The shape of this can look fairly severe but paired with some jazzy accessories and make-up, it is more fun than you might think! 

Dress: Whistles, tights:Tesco, belt: New Look, shoes: French Sole c/o Spartoo
Red lipstick is always my favourite and this Revlon lipstick in Provocateur is my favourite for a glossy red lip. I tend to wear matte lipstick but have been reaching for a satin/gloss finish recently as it just seems so much more wearable for daytime!

I love navy and red together and Essie Russian Roulette is a gorgeous bright shade. I have owed this leopard print belt for years and it is looking a bit worse for wear- has anyone seen a good replacement anywhere?

I am always nervous when I wear anything with a wrap skirt so I opted for a (very attractive) nude slip underneath to preserve my modesty and I was glad I did after some rather gale-like winds...no-one needs to see that much leg! 😮

How would you style this jumper dress?
