What I Wore: Midnight

Last Wednesday the hubs and I planned to meet in town after work for dinner, so I ditched the hoodie and holy yoga pants (there’s nothing sacred about them, they’re just full of holes from Bungle nipping at them!) and with Christmas on the brain decided it was worth getting a little dressed up.  But, our fancy dinner out ended up turning into a couple of hours of soggy, impromptu Christmas Shopping followed by a cheeky Chinese Takeaway on the way home instead (hands down the classiest takeaway I’ve ever had 😉).

I wore my new lace dress from Coast which kind of reminds me a little bit of Self Portrait and a little bit of a flamenco dancer because of the dropped hem.  It’s so comfortable to wear (no worries about scoffing too many mince pies and turkey at the Christmas Party) and the skirt has a lovely shape and movement to it.


Dress – C/O Coast (*My Cardiff readers can get 20% off at the checkout in Coast Cardiff if you mention “The Cardiff Cwtch”).  Bag – Primark (in stores now).  Shoes – ASOS (Similar Here).  Earrings – H&M (Similar Here).






Big cheers to the hubs for the photographs (…and the Takeaway!). Who else is excited for party season? Have a great week everyone! 🌠

What I Wore: Autumn Greens

It’s finally scarf weather!  If you caught my Instagram Stories a few weeks back then you’ll have seen my excitement at bringing down my towering bundle of scarfs from the top of my wardrobe – and this silky teal green scarf is one of my absolute faves.  This time of year I feel like the clothing colour palette is so geared towards hot reds, oranges, mustards, maroons – all the colours that tend to wash my Daz White skin out!  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got a mustard jumper that I’m very attached to – but teal green ticks all the boxes for me and my pale, cool-shades-loving tones.  And actually, it goes really, really with mustard too.  🙂

Did anyone do #NoSpendOctober?  I did it without even thinking about it (thanks flu!) and then officially jumped on the bandwagon at the end of the month.  I’ve been trying to get more use out of the clothes I’ve got hanging in my wardrobe recently anyway and have tried coming up with new outfits from what I’ve already got rather than cramming more impulse purchases into my already packed (and kind messy!) cupboards.  I think I’m going to keep going with it and see where it takes me.

Scarf – H&M (Old!  Similar here).  Blouse – White Stuff (Old Similar here).  Belt – £12.99 H&M.  Jeans – M&S (Old!).  Bag – TK Maxx (Similar here).  Coat – Primark (in store now).  Shoes – Primark (from the summer – I added the ribbons myself to stop them slipping off my giant feet.  In hindsight I probably shouldn’t have worn them – my feet froze!)


What are your favourite colours to wear this time of year? 🙂
