Outfit of the day: 5

It has been a miserable day here in Belfast with plenty of wind and constant rain. It was also my day to work, thats two consecutive Saturday's i've been in the office although hopefully i'll not be doing anymore until after the Christmas holidays.

My outfit choice today was influenced by comfort more than style. This weather calls for the winter accessories i.e. scarves and gloves and my flats have been retired well at least for drier days.

Anyway on to the outfit.

- Black double breasted jacket - Topshop (a few years ago)
- Black turtle neck jumper - Primark's finest :)
- Navy denim skinny jeans - Topshop Baxter's
- Black leather boots - River Island
(Gloves and scarf were also worn but not included in this photo)

It's a very basic outfit I just pulled together but it ticks all the boxes for me. Does it keep me warm? Yes. Does it keep my feet dry? Yes

Sundays Plans

I've just spent most of the morning organising and decluttering my coat wardrobe. I've been putting this off all week but my bf has taken his little brother to the wrestling so it was the perfect excuse to get it done.

I moved my coats and scarves etc to my old wardrobe in my old room removing bits and pieces I no longer wear as I went along. Now I have my coats, jackets, bags and half of my shoe collection all in the one place.

I love a good decluttering session. I can't stand hanging on to things just for the sake of it, instead I bag it before I can change my mind.

This is the result of a few hours work.

There's a combination of spare dressing gowns, halloween costumes, shorts for summer and then my jackets. I have put my shoes that come with boxes at the bottom too, though I still haven't decided what to do with the shoes that just come loose. I have considered maybe buying those clear shoe boxes and transferring them all to those that way its easier for me to find a pair.

Most of my bags are now stored in the bottom drawer and are easy accessible.

I always wonder what's in peoples wardrobes, I guess i'm just nosey like that. Feel free to let me know how you organise your wardrobe.

Saturdays Outfit of the Night

Saturday was my friends' birthday. To celebrate a crowd of us went to Rain and had such an amazing night.

I bought a new dress for this occasion, it's very rare that I would wear the same outfit for a night out twice. I chose a black dress from Miss Selfridge and accessorized with a clutch and heels. In my opinion you can't wrong with a black dress.

It's a black denim dress which flares at the bottom, with a faux leather band around the waist and also across the chest which wraps around the neck. For a better idea you can check it out here.

I paired this with my New Look stud blazer

For shoes and bag, I wore my staple Red or Dead black stilettos which have a suede effect and get dirty very easily. They are also murder on my feet but vanity wins over comfort! The clutch bag is a cheap one from New Look. I love this style of bag. You have two options, it can be worn in hand or under the arm and it was only £8 :)

Sticking to using products I haven't touched in a while, I broke out the NARS and came up with this "eye of the day".

To create this I used the following:

1) Mykonos cream shadow. On the website this is described as copper but in real life I would say it is more of a burgundy brown.

2) On top of that I applied MAC's Naked Lunch which is a gorgeous shimmery beige.

3) On the lower lash line and in the crease I used Lola Lola.

These were all applied using MAC's 239, a brush I had previously overlooked, it couldn't do anything my 217 couldn't do. I only began using it again after watching tutorials from pixi2woo.
This girl is beautiful and has some amazing uploads, a few which i've already favourited. If you haven't watched any of her videos I urge you to check them out.
