h&m white faux fur gilet (old)
primark ankle boots

hasn't today been horrible weather wise? one moment it was really sunny, then the next lashing it down and then moments later hail stones! it makes me scared to get into my car incase i get caught in the storm. now i know faux fur gilets are probably a bloggers best friend at the moment and you are sick of seeing it everywhere, but my manager brought a bag into work with some of her unwanted items for me to have a look at and i found this in the bottom! i can't believe she decided to give it away as it's a beaut, thanks though stacey. i thought it was a good opportunity to pair it with my new tartan shift dress from inlovewithfashion. normally when i go for tartan piece i go for the more classic "scotsman" colours, but this one i actually really like. i love the hint of white and yellow in it. also with shift dresses i find they can come up quite short; and i am not exactly a giant or anything (i'm only 5'5"), but this one is the perfect length to get away with no tights if you're feeling brave. what do you think? do you like this outfit? let me know! 

p.s stay safe if you're in places with the really bad weather. x

  2. A man in my area died today when his lorry toppled over and crushed some cars. Absolutely horrible, so scary with it being so close to home as well. That aside, I absolutely love your dress.
