Winter Florals For A Winters Day

Tuesday, January 21

Blouse: NewLook Crop Top (worn underneath): Instyle Skirt: NewLook Heels: M&S Jacket: Rocha: John Rocha
Ooops this is a very picture heavy post... I got a little carried away with my new DSLR camera. Can you see the difference? I was pleased with how smart this outfit looked for my Grandpa's funeral last Tuesday. I don't really own a lot of black clothing and what I do have is very casual so I decided to go for darker colours but in keeping with my style. This skirt was bought recently in the newlook sale and I was excited to have the chance to style it. Where as the jacket is quite a few years old but I haven't worn it in a while because I wasn't sure what to wear it with. I feel like it really suits this outfit though which makes me very happy. 

I was having a bit of a problem finding something to wear under this sheer shirt and the night before we left I was pulling items out of my wardrobe (we all do it!?) When I found a cream lace crop top that went perfectly. The pictures don't show it so well but close up you can see the lace sleeves nicely- it looks very pretty and girly. My hair is also finally starting to look more natural and is growing out a bit. I'm looking forward to not having a fringe at all and just having long layered hair. A girl can dream right?

Also what do you think of my new profile picture?
