the dreaded outfit post...

i find the whole idea of posting an outfit a bit cringey to be honest! i LOVE seeing what other people are wearing and where they've got their items from but it's taken me a few days to pluck up the courage, get down with the kids, and post a bloody outfit!


despite the freezing temperatures today in southampton, it was a very sunny day! after going to the gym, i decided to pop into town and ended up looking pretty summery. i did look a bit silly rocking my sunglasses and denim jacket when everyone else was wrapped up in scarves and winter coats but still, here goes;





grey top - topshop
black maxi skirt and brown belt - new look
cream studded pumps - topshop
bag - mulberry

my mulberry bag never leaves my side. i cant part with it for more than a day. it was a gift from my parents last summer and since i got it i don't think i've ever used another bag during the day!

my hair is currently looking a bit of a funky colour. normally i'm bleach blonde but a few weeks ago had it dyed 'dark brown'. alas it didn't do much to my bleach loving barnet and now it's kinda ginger! i'm trying to rock it for as long as possible but i have a feeling i'll be back to the bleach SOON!


you wouldn't know it from the sorry sight of me today but i am actually a makeup artist so i will post a few beauty faves soon!


anyone else got a favourite bag/item they can't live without?!
