Dress - Urban Outfitters, Cardi - Topshop, Socks - Dorothy Perkins, Ring - Primark, Boots - Schuh

Today I am back at work, boo! After eleven whole days off (the longest time I've had off since I started working) I'd just about got used to relaxing and they go and take it away from me. How unfair? 

This is an outfit from last week when I was still enjoying myself. I have barely taken off this cardigan since I first bought it, it is so snuggly and warm! It's kind of an all occaision dressing gown/coat/blanket substitute in cardigan form. Can you tell I'm a bit in love? 

The boots are my solution to anymore snow we may get. They have major grip, and are about as close as I get to appropriate footwear in winter. No one takes my heels away from me! I am thinking of changing the laces for something thicker and more sturdy though, these ones are ridiculously long and thin and spindly. Anyone know where I can purchase shoelaces from?

p.s. the title is in relation to the dress which has been in dire need of an iron ever since I bought it...

Oh man, instant dress love!! I wish we had an Urban Outfitters around here. They always have the nicest dresses. When I visit my parents, we go to the States shopping and they have a store there, but I never have any luck at it. But boring story aside, I love this dress oh so much! Especially the sleeves and the colour. ♥

That dress is a lovely colour. Love the cardi too - I've got a similar one from Asos, sooooo cosy. xx

Gorgeous outfit! I love the wolly cardigan and the grip on those boots looks mega amazing!!! Are you not scared of slipping over in heels in this weather? I am but I'm not that sturdy on them anyway. Love the dress, it's so pretty! 10/10 for this fab outfit, love it =)

That dress is sooo cute and the color is perfect on you! I love it. Cozy cardis are so great.. TOo bad mine doesn't go with everything (its grey with dark grey and black stripes). and the best part of this all is the SHOES. SO great and really practical too!

Helen said...

Oh I love that dress! I was eyeing it up last time I was in UO.

Sherin said...

Definitely a really pretty dress. I love the colour. The cardi does look so warm and cozy. I have a similar one and love it!

Kate said...

RAWR! Does that tell you how much I love this outfit? I've really wanted a yellow dress for a while now - got my eye on one from ModCloth - so to see you rocking this one is very inspiring AND not too mention, pretty damn cool. I hope it sings the sun out early! I think this is one of my favourite outfits of yours of all time. A little bit preppy, a little bit rock, a little bit relaxed. All the awesome stuff!

Your blog is adorable! I go through a cardigan envy phase every so often as well.

Cheers! -Julie

Love the whole outfit, but those boots are especially nice! I'm amazed you attempt any sort of heel in the snow though!! :O :P xx

Hayles said...

You're much braver than me to wear heels in the ice! I fall over even with my wellies on.

Sophie said...

Reda said...

yikes - you a crazy lady with them snow hikey boots! I absolutely adore the mustard/ochre colour which was very A/W 2010 without being camel which washes me out some - wahey! Gotta say I found it pretty difficult to find the right tone on the highstreet/ mid-range designer - but to be fair, I didn't really scope UO.. Love the gill-frills, looks lovely on you. P.S. & I am texting you back in the morning I don't want to wake you up!! xxx

MJ said...

Lovelovelove the cardi and the hiking boots!

Danni and Maria said...

Aww I really love you in yellow, I am always so jealous of anyone who can pull it off :P And this outfit is cute AND practical... bonus points for you! I tend to look super stumpy if I try and dress weather appropriate :)
