As you can probably already tell, I'm absolutely loving this dark purple/ red wine shade which is dominating my wardrobe at the moment! I've only just realised that my t-shirt, shoelaces and nail polish are all colour co-ordinated, now that is dedication right there! I picked up this t-shirt before my interviews on Tuesday, any excuse to mooch around the shops. I love the sheer panel across the chest and I also bought it in a size 12 so it has an oversized look which I think always looks better with a pair of leggings or skinnies. I paired it with these baroque print leggings which I also picked up before my interviews. I also rely on my classic AA lycra leggings when I need a pair of black leggings so thought these might spruce up my options a little bit. I do like the baroque prints that are around at the moment, although this is a slightly more subtle version but the hints of glitter make it stand out a bit more.

I have worn this rose gold necklace non-stop lately and don't plan on changing it any time soon. I really like the oversized chain look and because it's not gold it doesn't look too 'ghetto'. I also got round to changing my nail polish at long last and chose this bright purple shade from Barry M which has been sat in my drawer for months. It definitely came out much brighter than anticipated but I'm actually quite fond of the finished look. I had to stop myself from adding a top coat of glitter as this seems to be my usual 'go-to' at the moment but decided to keep it plain and simple. When the December 1st comes upon us it will be glitter, glitter and more glitter to keep with the festive spirit!


  1. That t shirt is gorgeous, looks amazing with the leggings! x

  2. I'd love to see a post on what make up you've been wearing recently-always looks lovely! X

  3. I really like the tee, I've had me eye on this one as well as the black one, I think it's the mesh detail which is attracting me to it. And I love your watch, I can't afford one though, one day!

  4. I love the leggings! Perfect for party season! x x

  5. These leggings are perfect!xx

  6. totally agree about the oversizing!
