This is a proper Winter outfit today, all I care about was layers, layers and more layers! It wasn't even that cold today but the design studio is always chilly and there's nothing better than cosy knitwear to keep you warm. I bought this gold jumper from Topshop last year and I always pull it out from time to time when I want to wear a jumper that's warm but doesn't give you that horrible itchy feeling. I paired it with my dark burgundy cardigan and a fur stole which I detached from an old Topshop boyfriend style coat from last Winter. The coat had a really bad fit where the shoulders didn't fit right so I end up just wearing the stole on top of other coats or cardigans. I also wore my faux-leather skater skirt which I'm really loving at the moment, it's a good change from my AA leggings and matches well with my beloved Adonis leather boots. These have been a saviour since moving to London because not only are they so comfy but they save my little feet from being trod on amongst the busy tubes!
I also got round to changing my nail polish to this lovely dark raspberry shade. I'm definitely feeling festive this year for the first time in my life so I'm bringing out the dark polish and soon my dark lipstick. I gave my new Mac lipstick a go which I featured in yesterday's 'Today I bought' post, it's a little glossier than I imagined but this actually prevents my lips from drying out. I love the light peachy shade for during the day, it adds a little something rather than my usual paler than pale nude Barry M '154'.
