Winter Florals

Jacket: Marks & Spencer
Dress: Shikha
Tights: Tesco

Put two pieces together that i'd of never thought of doing before. This dress which i actually bought from a Charity Shop a good while ago, it's got a great Winter feel about it, i think it's just the colour and the way the flowers are, it's not too overpowering at all. This dress is short-sleeved and elastically comes in at the waist, i'm not too keen on it coming at the waist though as it pops out a tad just underneath the elasticated waist and i think that makes me look frumpy. (Damn being so negative about my appearance constantly) I bought this jacket from a Charity Shop too - they really are the best places for finding cute pieces to add to your wardrobe.  I think it looks nice over this dress, it adds a vintage touch to it and makes it look more sophisticated instead of just cutesy. The shoulder padded effect squaring off my shoulders also gives the impression also gives the impression that i have a lot more confidence than i do, which is something i've always loved about shoulder padded clothing.

Something i've been told that's meant to be very therapeutic is baking. I used to love baking cupcakes a while back and i  haven't in a while so thought i may give it a go over the weekend. I'm using my brothers friends as guinea pigs, and i'm giving all the baked goods to them once i've baked them, good ole' teenage boys and their forever-increasing appetite! Now.. what to bake.. Cupcakes? Brownies? Cookies?

  6. Your outfit is so pretty. I love that lace jacket. It is so adorable. I thought about baking cupcakes this weekend but have instead decided to make French apple tart and friendship bread. They should be great for the cold temperatures we are supposed to have this weekend.
