Necklace: River Island
Boots: Rocket Dog
I love this outfit, definitely feels like I’m embracing my inner goth! I bought this maxi dress during the summer and only wore it once or twice, but I can see it making a comeback for winter. I think I need to invest in a few more slouchy jumpers/cardigans to wear it with. I really like this Topshop jumper but it’s a bit of a weird length so doesn’t look right worn with jeans – wearing it with a dress underneath solves this problem however.
A few weeks ago River Island had one of their student lock-in evenings so I ventured down to grab myself some bargains. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything I liked clothes-wise (that always happens, I swear they hide the good stuff away when there’s discount or a sale!) but ended up buying this necklace from the men’s section. I’m a big fan of men’s jewellery in shops like River Island and Topman, it always seems to be a bit cheaper than women’s jewellery and is just as good!
I never know which shoes I should wear with maxi dresses. In-keeping with the ’90s goth theme I went for these heavy duty boots from Rocket Dog. They will be mega useful when it (inevitably) starts snowing here soon, but they do remind me of the rigger boots my dad used to wear for working offshore! What kind of shoes do you wear with maxi skirts or dresses during the winter?
It’s my birthday on Monday so I’m going to be spending the weekend celebrating, starting with dinner at Wagamama tonight with my friends, followed by lots of drinking at the Union. Hope you all have a great weekend!
