OOTD: Spotty Faux

I really enjoy putting OOTD posts up but the effort that goes into taking the photos for them stops me from doing it as regular as i’d like! And because the lighting in the flat is terrible, I have to do it as early as possible which cancels out the option of having Adam take photos for me when he’s home from work… Boo! But, I managed to get some done and there will hopefully be more OOTD / OOTN style posts coming soon! 


Now it is technically Winter (to me anyway) it’s not as easy to just throw any old thing on, I need to be warm and snug! Layering is the best option for me. A t shirt, jumper, scarf and vest is my go-to combo in winter normally with tights and a skirt or leggings! This time last year, I was pretty much in my PJ’s all day every day, lazing around the flat, doing absolutely NOTHING! But this winter is different, i’m kept on my toes by entertaining a 7 month old but it still doesn’t give me any reason as to why I choose to stay in my pyjamas most of the time rather than get dressed… Oops! When I do get dressed though, I like to feel myself, whack a bit of make-up on and something I deem acceptable and would actually leave the house in...






Dress - River Island (last season) 
Skirt - Miss Luxe*
Tights - Primark
Boots - H&M
Jumper - Primark
Lipstick - MAC Saint Germain
Sallys Glitz & Glam Double Volume Hair Piece*

 I love how casual this look is when the jumper is thrown on over everything. You could wear this to a dinner with friends and add a leather jacket or fur coat rather than the jumper or stick to it as it is and throw some flats on for a more casual look! 

What do you like wearing when it gets cold?!
