(Dress: C/O Rare London, Bag: Zara, Hat: Miss Selfridge, Boots: Runway Shoes, Cardigan & Lipstick: Topshop)

When I shot this outfit a couple of weeks ago (a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do) I certainly felt fine parading around without the need of a handy pair of tights. Fast forward to the day I intend on publishing this outfit (I rarely leave it this long FYI) and you wouldn't catch me without tights, long Johns, stockings, and fluffy bed socks with this dress. I do not recommend bare legs in December.

Bar that slight mishap, I'm really quite fond of this dress and it's awesome embroided front- and wait- lace back (saucy eh!) It's the perfect ratio of girlie to grungy, and mixed in with my favourite headpiece (lol) and go-to Chelsea boots, it makes for a nice day-to-evening outfit opposed to my normal striped t shirt and black (grey) jeans combination. Additionally, it gives me the chance to yet again coordinate my lips with my outfit- which as you can imagine, I found very exciting (oh I wish I was joking...) and certainly look forward to styling it with chunky knits, my slightly-crazy Russian fur hat and my huge huge coat!
