You look better now than last time, but you still look better from afar




Thrifted Sweater | Skirt from Forever 21 | Secret Tights | Material Girl Pumps | Watch C/O Daniel Wellington

Autumn is nearly upon us and I, for one, am ready to welcome it with open arms. I have never been a summer girl. I find the sun and hot weather enjoyable for about a week before getting tired of sleeping with my duvet half fallen on the floor and sweating whilst doing the most minuscule of things. I hum and haw about getting a suntan until it's too late in the summer to even bother. And I always seem to begin the summer with plans to do this and that and end it having done about a quarter of the things I had planned to do. That, though, I think mostly boils down to the plans sounding better at the end of May than when faced with the reality of the blistering sun of July.

On the other hand, I've always loved autumn. Colourful fallen leaves, shorter days, cooler weather, nicer clothes, Hallowe'en and all that it encompasses, upcoming Christmas holidays.

Now, to write a bit about what I had sat down to write about to begin with -- my first proper autumn outfit post of the year. Sometime near the end of spring I bought a huge chunky knit sweater at one of my favourite thrift shops with the cooler months in mind. I'd had it sitting at the back of my closet and thought it would be perfect for the type of outfit I had in mind. I paired it with a skin tight black skirt and black tights to create a nice bit of contrast. For shoes, I opted for a pair of chunky heels I bought last autumn. And since I was going for a little bit of a 1960s vibe with this look, I backcombed my hair a bit more excessively and went with a heavier eye makeup look and lighter lip than I typically do.

And for accessories, I wore the Classic Bristol watch by Daniel Wellington. I absolutely adore the dark brown strap and rose gold face. Such a dream. I was contacted recently by the shop regarding a collaboration and so I also have a discount code to share! The code 'lifeinredlipstick' provides a 15% discount shopwide on www.danielwellington.com and is good through 15 September.

  1. Your style is impeccable and you are such an inspiration! The sweater looks perfect for autumn!

    Funny thing - those Daniel Wellington watches have been on my mind probably for a year and a half now. I have been tempted to get one; unfortunately as a uni student - that means an investment even if it is a very needed one.
    However, as I saw your instagram photo as well as the code (this sounds silly) but it has to be some kind of sign for me to get it now. If nothing comes in my way (fingers crossed) I shall not miss the opportunity and finally get one for myself!

    (Still not sure which 'classic' leather one I should get - nor the colour of the metal. That is the pain for having too many gold and silver jewellery. Probably should go for the rose gold instead, ha!)
    (Although, on the picture your rose gold one looks like it could be either silver or gold, but it probably looks more rose in real life - if not, the decision has been made.)

    PS: Looking forward to your next Youtube video! Take care! X
