On Friday night I was surprised to find out we were going out for dinner that evening. To be honest I was a little annoyed because I was soo tired, after a long and busy week. But I managed to put this little outfit together, so I looked half decent when I went out.
The Purple top is actually a body con style dress, which kept the top of my legs toasty in the evening as I only had tights on underneath. I chose the red skirt, as red is typically an autumnal colour, but I didn’t have time to iron it. Whoops! I was sat down most of the evening, so I’m sure no body noticed. As well as keeping me warm, the lower half of the skirt meant that the red skirt didn’t stick to my tights as it was a barrier between the two. It acted like a little slip. Purple and Red are going to be a few of the key colours for Autumn/Winter this season. Berry colours are totally trendy now, and this outfit makes the most of that pallet. A little cheeky fact for you, I actually have a warm vest top underneath the purple dress. It wasn’t visible as it’s one of those thermal ones, so it hides well. The black blazer is just the right slightly cropped length as it finished around the waistband of the skirt. My necklace has purple in it too, and the chain is a dirty gold which suits the autumnal colours better than a silver chin would have. I could have gone for long brown boots with this outfit, but I didn’t want to throw too many colours into mix, so I stuck with little black heels.
I wore my hair in a simple pony tail, so that it wasn’t all dark colours around my face. I didn’t want to draw attention to how tired I looked!
