(Hat: Topshop, Dress: Topshop, Boots: Sarenza, Watch: Olivia Burton, Lipstick: Kate Moss for Rimmel Shade 107)

In the height of my paisley phase this Autumn (where I yearned for J Dubs, Stella M and Jil Sander look-a-likies) I spotted this dresses first appearance on the Topshop website, and loved it's print yet was equally unsure of it's brightness. After umming and aahing, seeing it in store, umming and aahing a little more- and finally seeing it in the completely beautiful Lula Magazine, my mind was set. Luckily, it had gone into sale by this point (decisive I am not) and at just under half price, I'm sure it was meant to be. It's the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe (if not a little light) but will look equally as lovely with some sandals or plimsolls come the spring!
