(Dress: ASOS, Bag: & Other Stories, Boots: River Island similar here, Faux Fur: Topshop, Bangle: C/O Dinny Hall)

With the last week being one of the busiest of the year (think lots of running around, a wee venture to Stylist Live, meetings, a Halloween party, book launch and seeing pals in between), it took a lot to avoid reaching for my jeans and a knit when Friday came around. But alas! coordination called me (as did this new midi I picked up from ASOS)- and I was off. I recently went to an event of one of my long time favourite designers, Matthew Williamson (which was gorgeous and incredibly surreal, but more on that another time)- and met a few of the beautiful girls working there. All of the girls had serious dress and boot coordination down, and I can honestly say inspired this look a little- good job ladies!

Anyway- although dressed up, this outfit was one made for a lunch with friends and my first ever HIIT personal training session (which I changed for, I promise- I'm not that much of a gym novice)- and felt perfectly appropriate for a day in the city. But saying that, when getting dressed on this particular morning- I read a piece by Pandora Sykes (a.k.a talented and well dressed babe of the year) talking about personal style and the perils of external judgment on the tube- and certainly felt I could relate wearing something 'this daring' whilst taking a stuffy central line jaunt. There's definitely something about red faux faur, skin tight croc boots and a slitted midi dress that gages attention- but if there was ever a time to use 'YOLO' I think this is definitely it- here's to unapologetic fun dressing!

  7. Your look so chic Olivia! There is a vintage vibe in this outfit I think, but I couldn't say what exactly makes it so. The print of the dress is gorgeous. The whole outfit is quite daring it is true, but in a good way and you wear it very well don't worry!

  11. This photos are so gorgeous they're making me want to put on a pretty dress, find the closest tree and take OOTDs. Unfortunately it's ten o'clock at night and pitch black. Will have to wait until a more appropriate time! haha! You're just too inspiring!

  21. Oh my goodness, this amount of burgundy and berry is divine! I'm the same with HIIT, it's scary but really does get you energised fast (saying that, I should do more....yoga bunny over here!)
