OOTD: Black, floral and sheer

You know those days when you want to feel like a babein' lady? And I don't just mean like 'I want to feel pretty today' but a legitimate 'I want to put this on, know I look amazing and not have to worry about what I'm wearing all day long'. Yeah. That good. Scarlet & Jo dresses always tick those boxes for me. Simple yet detailed. Classic yet modern. Flirty and demure. The perfect babein' lady dress!

Dress: C/O Scarlet & Jo
Shoes: Betts
Bag: Ebay
Sunnies: New Look

The team from Scarlet & Jo sent me this dress from part of their prom dress collection. I knew as soon as I saw it that it would fit like a dream. The fit and flare cut sits perfectly on my wide hips and the skirt has an attached net lining which gives just the right amount of gentle 'boof' for everyday and dressed up wear.

Mostly I like that its a twist on an everyday little black dress. With the colour splash, the cheeky sheer panel and the flare shape, there is so much already going on that you don't need to add many accessories for it to feel like a complete outfit.

Although this particular dress is nearly sold out, Scarlet & Jo release thier collection in sizes 14 to 32, I love thier size inclusion! From a fit point of view, this dress is a UK size 24 and I'd say it would be on par with our AUS 22-24. The hips are cut more as a free size with the flare and its super comfortable to wear- as with every S&J piece I've ever owned. And this brings me back to what I was saying about loving the brand. Having so much faith in a brand that you can buy something online and know it'll be perfect. That might just be the holy-grail of fashion!

OOTD: Winter colour

When it gets cooler, my wardrobe naturally colour tones down and I find myself wearing more grey and black. And now don't get me wrong, I love a sexy, all- black outfit, but when the sun snuck out from behind the clouds last week, I had to keep that brightness going!

Top: c/o BooHoo
Skirt: Eloquii
Shoes: Betts
Bag: Colette
Necklace: H&M
Sunnies: Domino Dollhouse

Eloquii had a killer sale last month, all skirt stock was reduced to $39. Which means I picked up this midi skirt (and a few others!) for a steal! I love the heavy drape of it, even on this windy day I didn't have many gusty-up skirt problems.

The funky top is part of the Nadia Aboulhosn x Boohoo Spring/Summer collection (find it here in black and white). Its actually a bodysuit, but I wear it as a top to avoid visible camel toe. I often find bodysuits aren't cut right for my long torso and I am still on the hunt for the perfect one. But I couldn't resist the cool mesh panels and neckline, strap detailing. Its such a stand out 'Nadia' type piece, effortlessly cool.

I've just rediscovered these platform jelly sandals from Betts. They were hiding in a dusty corner of my wardrobe, very sadly unloved. Slipping these bad boys on made me remember why I love platform heels so much- comfort and height ohhhh yeah! And they were a perfect addition to this white and green outfit!

What colour do you wear most when its cold?
