I woke up this morning to glorious (if slightly chilly) sunshine! 

not one to waste an opportunity I grabbed my new topshop jersey dress determined to make the most of the temporary rain break! I love this dress as it's soft, slightly loose fitting and perfect to wear with tights and cosy jumpers (it also comes in a lovely oxblood version that I was torn between buying!)

I bought this new look lace and pearl collar a while ago and I think its quite a nice addition to the rather simple dress! I'm also wearing my new boots which I'm slightly enamoured with as as they make me skyscraper tall without the wobble as the chunky heels are really wearable! 

I kept the accessories quite simple today just my gold casio watch and a lovely double arm cuff that I found in the topshop sale last week!



dress: topshop
lace collar: new look
hat: h&m
bag: vintage
belt: urban outfitters vintage renewal
arm cuff: topshop
ring: regal rose
boots: new look

hope you like it!
