Wow, bit of a Zara overload today! I didn't realise that whilst I was putting this outfit together! Oh well, I can't deny that probably half of my wardrobe is from Zara anyway. I ventured out into the rain today in these little silk shorts which seemed like a stupid idea at the time...and it's still a stupid idea! I can't face wearing tights just yet and I'm hanging onto the last few days of slightly warm weather before it turns freezing. At least I wore a jumper with them, which is one of my all time favourites that I bought some time last year. I think the little polka dot pattern is really cute and I really like the ribbed texture. I'm also wearing my Zara boots which are technically new as this is the first time I've worn them. I actually bought them whilst I was in Marbella during July but completely forgot about them (typical me!). I can't wait to wear these boots during the Winter months, they're dead comfortable and I really like the shiny leather effect.

I've re-painted my nails today using Maybelline Color Show 'Orange Attack' which is a really bright shade of red/ orange. They look really red in these photographs but they are much more orange in person. I was really impressed with this nail polish, the brush is nice and easy to apply with and the finish is ultra glossy. I'm also wearing my new Topshop lipstick in 'Peach Sundae' which is a typical creamy peach shade, no surprise there! I love all Topshop lipsticks, I think they have a great formula as they are moisturising but not too shiny. I tend to suffer from dry lips so don't get along with ultra matte lipsticks anyway. I think this is fairly new and I'd highly recommend picking it up, it's the perfect shade for any season!
