The return of my outfit posts, yay! I finally got round to taking some photographs after a hectic and very ill couple of weeks. I'm definitely going to try and get a few posted this week as I know once Christmas approaches I'll be in hibernation wearing nothing but chunky knits and pyjamas in front of the fire!

Onto my outfit, unfortunately I had to take my photographs inside so the light has made everything look extra dull. The jumper I'm wearing is actually a really deep purple shade and has splits up the side seams but this isn't very obvious because the photos are so dark. I wore a black 'cobweb' style vest underneath which poked out the sides and looked kinda cute. I wasn't really sure what to wear underneath but I figured something with a different texture like lace or sheer fabric would look good.

This is also the first official outing for my brand new beautiful Céline bag! I've been a very lucky girl this Christmas and this is one of my presents. I was given it early as I'm too impatient to wait till Christmas day when I know what the present is already! I've wanted one of these bags for so long, I love the boxy shape and classic style. The perfect day bag to add a touch of class to any outfit.

I'm obsessed with this Sleek lipstick which I purchased on the weekend. 'Barely There' is a soft of pinky/ peachy shade with a creamy texture so it glides along the lip easily and gives a good colour coverage. I'm also after the 'Vamp' shade but they seem to be sold out in every Superdrug I visit so I'll just have to sit tight until they re-stock!
