I'm finally back home for the first time in months and it's actually the best feeling in the world! The heating is on full blast, the fridge is stocked up to the brim and I'm starting to feel slightly festive. Last night was spent catching up with some old friends and I didn't realise how cold it would be once I stepped out, hence my choice of a cropped jumper and mini skirt! I wear this Zara polka dot jumper all the time, probably too often but I just love the simplicity of the style and it's so easy to wear. I tend to wear it with a skirt such as this River Island wet look skater skirt which I've had for years. This always comes in handy during the Winter for layering underneath chunky jumpers. Although this is really old there are still hundreds of similar wet look skater skirts out there at the moment and probably cheaper alternatives.

I've mentioned my recent obsession with brown lipstick at the moment and 'Double Shot' is another addition to my ever-growing collection. Double Shot has an amplified finish so the colour is very strong and bold on the lip. The shade is a very molten dark brown so it's not one for the faint-hearted! I think a brown dark lip is such a great alternative to the usual dark purple shade and still gives off the same effect, if not slightly more sophisticated and less vibrant!


  1. Love the clash in prints x

    That scarf looks so cosy.

  5. Oh your style is just amazing Lydia!! I'm actually upset that my H&M doesn't do that scarf, need a bit of Lydia Faye Jones' style in my life!!
