Blogmas Day 29: Into The Woods - OOTD

So I'll admit I've been pretty crappy with Blogmas, however I'm pretty pleased with how much content I've managed to come up with, and I really hope you've enjoyed it. 

With the chaos of Christmas finally over, I decided to pick my camera up once more and get back into the swing of things with a good ol' Outfit of the Day post. 

I've been meaning to do another one for ages, especially since I got this new dress from 

I've never owned a wrap dress before, but for anyone with a curvy figure they're incredible flattering. I'd never looked twice at one until I saw this print. From a distance it looks like any old monochrome pattern, but close-up the detailed woodland print becomes clear. 

What I really love about it is that you can dress it up and down, and that goes for the boots too. They were a brilliant Black Friday buy that go with absolutely everything, from dresses to ripped jeans. I'm such a sucker for a chunky heel. 

The scarf and gloves also featured in my Black Friday post and were my best bargain buys. So happy to finally own a pair of leather gloves. 

All in all I feel the contrast of soft fabrics with leather, as well as matte with glossy makes for an outfit suitable for a variety of occasions, be it a meal out or a walk in the woods (not if it's muddy though, the boots now need a good scrub; luckily they're washable).

Belated Blogmas Day 13: Black Friday Haul

Who got involved in the Black Friday madness then? 

I did, but from the comfort of my cosy warm bed. It makes me wonder whether those morons fighting over discounted TVs knew that the internet existed. 

I know this post is a while after the hype of Black Friday, but my goodies have only just arrived!

It was a little bit frustrating actually because two of the products I ordered were for Prague, but they arrived too late for me to take them *sniff*. 

Here they are now though - my bargain babies: 

The boots were actually a lucky buy, because I won a £30 House of Fraser voucher in a competition run by Sophie Hannah Richardson which meant that the boots only cost me a tenner!

The gloves and snood were a major bargain too though. Both of them only came to £23 and the gloves are real leather too!

They snood is so handy. It goes with absolutely everything, and I don't have to faff with fancy scarf wrapping (I can never do it right!). 

I adore the gloves, however my challenge this season is going to be not losing them. Every pair of gloves I've ever owned have been lost. Whether it's dropping one as I've taken it off to use my phone, or forgetting I've put them down and walking off without them, I always find a away of losing one if not both of them. The don't-loose-the-gloves challenge starts now. 

Can't wait to shoot an outfit post with them, so stay tuned!
