Outfit: My New Favourite Dress

It’s September now, so it’s technically autumn and it’s therefore acceptable to start wearing wooly tights, right?!

Unfortunately the colour didn’t come out very well in these pictures, but the tights are a gorgeous deep forest green and I think they go really well with my new cream lace skater dress from Warehouse. I love this dress and I think it’s probably actually the cheapest thing I’ve ever bought from Warehouse! It was in the sale plus I got 15% student discount so it ended up only being about £16.

I usually go for blacks, navy blues and deep reds and purples in the autumn, but this year I’m trying to embrace creams, khakis and browns. I love the colours in this outfit, makes me want to go for a long walk in a forest!

This necklace from Accessorize was another new purchase. It’s a tiny little globe that spins and everything, so cute!

The boots are from New Look and the belt is from H&M. I usually go for big waist cinching belts, but I love the skinny belt with this outfit. It’s pretty cloudy today so I think this is the perfect outfit to wear to go for dinner and then to the pub. I hate being over or under-dressed for the pub, but I think this dress is just about right.
