Although these photographs were taken this afternoon in the midst of the drizzly rain and wind- I somehow managed to snap what I was wearing without looking all too much like a drowned rat (although if you have seen my Twitter, you'll know that shooting my other outfit wasn't quite as simple...) and discovered, a hat really is my best friend when I'm not parading around in my Paddington bear hooded duffle; even if 'Pilgrim chic' does spring to mind.
I also debuted one of my new favourite dresses, which was a delightful surprise from the wonderful Kay at Hedonia. I'd seen a dress similar on my talented friend Shannon, and in my local Topshop- so the arrival of this bad-boy to my wardrobe couldn't have come at a better time- and it's a perfect staple/pinch of school uniform that my wardrobe always welcomes- with the addition of stunning metallic detailing and the most flattering skirt shape. Additionally, I teamed it with my burgundy Marc B bag (which has the most gorgeous gold detailing and leopard lining) and coordinated Rimmel lipstick, because it's all about matching lips with accessories nowadays right? (Nope, thought not)
