The Last Warm Day

06:20


Winning dress - The Ragged Priest
silver glitter choker - Depop
Stellar boots - Melissa
unicorn backpack - Skinnydip London

It's official guys, Autumn is well and truly here. The leaves are turning golden brown and beginning to line the ground outside in the garden, the shops is beginning to stock thick high neck sweaters and every manner of coat you could dream of and yes - a certain pumpkin spiced beverage is available to buy in a certain coffee chain. While there has been a definite nip in the air during the past few weeks since the Equinox (good news for me as I've been able to break in my new pink Jakke coat), Sunday brought one last burst of warmth which I had to make the most of sartorially. I've really been enjoying the slip layered over a white t-shirt trend that's been going around lately, so when I saw this dress by The Ragged Priest I knew I had to have it. I'm really into silky fabrics lately, and I love the flash of lilac down the side - it really adds something to what would otherwise be a fairly ordinary pink slip. This dress actually kind of reminds me of the look that Cher wears in Clueless with the pink cami and tee, just more modern and you all know by now how much she inspires my personal style. As the formula of the dress is actually fairly simple I decided to add a bit of extra sass by pairing it with a cute silver glitter choker which I bought from a seller on Etsy and my beloved pair of Melissa boots. I didn't realise how much I'd be living in these babies this season but they really do go with the bulk of my wardrobe - they're a guaranteed head turner too if my recent outings of them are anything to go by!

Have a great week everyone <3

  2. I love autumn. But sitting here with a big jumper on and a blanket wrapped around me, still shivering, looking at your graceful 'summery' pictures... well, it makes you think, doesn't it? ;) Love the outfit and the lilac indeed adds just that little bit of extra that makes this slip dress just that little bit more special. Also: how do you keep those boots so nice and new looking! Mine for sure would've been scraped and have suspicious stains all over them... let me know your secret! ;)

    Love,
    Dominique

  3. I love this outfit, and the lilac definitely gives the dress edge and makes it even cuter. I'm actually liking the weather right now, though I know as soon as it gets a smidgin colder I'll start complaining.
