(Dress: Motelrocks, Jumper: Whistles, Ring: Whistles, Bag: Mulberry, Shoes: New Look)

One of my current favourite outfit combinations! Usually when it comes to layering and 'experimenting' with clothes, I seriously lack in the imagination department. I recently bought this dress from Motel in their sale, having fallen in love with it in the summer, but never really regarded it as something I could exactly wear during the autumn months.

I would never have thought to layer this dress underneath this jumper, but due to the fact it's backless and not the thickest as dresses go, it seemed the most appropriate way to wear it when the chilly weather begins to kick in! I also quite like the fact the jumper looks a little 'untucked' and messy, meaning it's not entirely 'prim and proper'. I also teamed it with this AMAZING new 'Dorothy-shoes' esque nail varnish from Barry M, which, although peels off within a few hours, dries like the speed of light and looks AWESOME on, so I am happy with that!

I hope you've all had nice weekends! I'm back in Liverpool, and feeling seriously homesick and missing London! The fact my friend told me I was missing his Beyonce themed party this weekend did not help (may have to just sit in my flat blasting B to compensate, watching her FAB new video for Countdown - what.a.babe !) but hopefully I'll get settled again soon!

  4. If that's the dress I think it is, I have definitely just received the same one in the post... Talk about coincidence! Homesickness is horrible, but it's not too long until the Christmas holidays. I visited loads of people last year and found that really helped, try and keep busy (: xxx

  21. This outfit is perfect, I love the Whistles jumper, like you say the perfect amount of rumpled without being too baggy or too prim! Lovely :) I have the nail polish and find it such a pain to remove, so it's handy that it peels off! xx
