Shift Dress* - So In Fashion £25
Orange Segment Clutch* - New Look SS14 Range
Black Fedora - Topshop £25
Shirt - H&M
Heels & Coat - Primark

Why hello there. How's it hanging? Today is pretty exciting for me as it's that momentous time of the year when my family and I put the Christmas tree up! YES!!! With this in mind, I'm going to keep this post relatively short as I've got a bucket load of Christmas-related stuff to do...

Above is a little taster of something I wore earlier this week. I thought I'd liven up a rather monochrome outfit with a pop of colour in the form of this neon shirt and orange clutch ensemble. The idea behind the whole 'colour pop addition' was mainly because I was really excited to utilise my orange segment clutch which I obtained from the New Look SS14 collection (which by the way, I'm very excited about) plus the clutch went really well with a Chanel lipstick I've been wanting to wear for a while. It's a no brainer really.

The shift dress that I'm wearing is from the So In Fashion Autumn Winter collection and I have to say, it's a very versatile dress. The print of the dress is what really attracted me to it - I also think it looks quite expensive and I like that this kind of dress can be worn all year round! It comes up quite short, which for me is ideal as I'm a 5ft wonder anyway, and the material can be quite clingy however I've managed to get around this by wearing a little black cotton skirt underneath which prevents the material from sticking to my legs. I think I must be super charged anyway because items of clothing that are prone to static always become 100x worse when I wear them.

I haven't kept this post short at all have I? Oh well…
I'm now off to go and do festive things (excitement implosion imminent). Currently facing a major dilemma about which Christmas jumper to wear though. Oh life's tough decisions...
