Cold Shoulder OOTD

Today we braved the gail-force winds and ventured in to Cardiff for the day! We had a lovely time, despite the weather and here is what I wore;

Dress - ASOS Curve (bought via eBay), Vest Top - ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Shoes - Primark, Scrunchie - Urban Outfitters.

I received this dress through the post yesterday and I adore it! The cold shoulder design is something so different and it adds an entirely different element to an otherwise classic shift dress. I bought it a size bigger (just because I was desperate to have it as soon as I found it on eBay haha), so I popped a vest top underneath it so as not to expose to much flesh to the elements. But the material sits incredibly well so if I didn't wear anything underneath it, I don't think there would be any unnecessary exposure which is always a bonus haha! 

I picked up these pumps in Primark for £5 and I love love love them! They are so comfortable! Due to the fact they are a velour material, they wouldn't really be suitable for wearing on rainy days but that's fine by me! I love the little tassles.

As I've said on other posts recently, I'm currently in a bit of a hair rut so I'm cloning to any style that makes my hair look semi acceptable and that style is currently the bun! I picked up this scrunchie in Urban Outfitters for £4 and I love it. It's just a cute little addition to spruce up the simple bun! It's actually a sheer black material with a very faint polka dot but sadly the light here doesn't show that! 

This ring belonged to my Grandfather and was given to him by my Great Grandmother (you can just about make out the inscription she had done for my Grandfather) so it is over 60 years old. It's misshapen and scratched but I adore it because it belonged to my Grandfather, who was the most incredible, wonderful human being. 

Lastly I will apologise in advance as I very rarely change my makeup! The only thing I really do differently is add a flash of lipstick! This particular lipstick is from Topshop, it does ware fairly quickly but I adore the shade so I don't mind reapplying when necessary!

I love this dress and these shoes and I would really recommend all you ladies considering this dress to 100% get it! It can be dressed up or down, is so comfortable and I felt fabulous in it!

Lots Of Love,
