I've been so behind with my posts lately and feel like I'm really lacking with my 'Lusting After' and 'Today I Bought' posts. This week is my last week at Uni before the holidays and I've been bombarded with work and projects to be finished by the end of the semester. Once the holidays begin and I'm slightly more free I'll have much more time to create varied posts! Anyway, the outfit I'm wearing is really different to what I've been wearing lately. Due to the freezing weather and stupidly strong winds I've strayed away from dresses/ skirts and stuck to the safer option of jeans. However, I couldn't resist bringing out this lovely Asos floral number which I wore to the Burberry Prorsum show back in September. I love the hints of neon in this dress, even though floral prints can be quite Summery, I feel like this has a really Winter look to it. I've worn it with my Accessorize faux fur collar which I purchased last Winter as an alternative to scarves. I'm not a big fan of chunky scarves as I hate having things round my neck so this is perfect. The fur is incredibly soft and although it's no longer available, I'm sure almost identical versions are around on the high street at the moment.

I mentioned in my last post that I had a naughty Mac splurge last week and purchased a few items including the Mac 'Verve' lipstick. This lipsticks is a really amplified dark brown shade and is something I have been after for a while. I'm kind of sick of the typical dark purple lip so this is a great alternative to still create the same effect. I featured 'Mocha' in my last post which is a lighter option if you don't fancy such a dramatic look. These dark shades can often be quite tricky to apply so I would advise also purchasing the Mac 'Hover' lip liner to create a neatened outline and prevent the outer edges from bleeding and smudging throughout the day.
