Through the Dark.

Not the most inspiring outfits this week by any standards! I didn't wear this to do anything particularly interesting anyway, so I suppose no love lost there. 

This khaki dress is years old now. It's made of jersey and is really comfortable. It has a simple empire line, cut just under the bust and then flairs out underneath. I'm not a huge fan of khaki colours, they remind me of All Saints and nineties girlbands wearing combats. But I do like the military feel of this dress, with the gold buttons. This cardigan is one of my favourite slouchy items to wear as well. It just adds to the comfiness of this outfit even more. I'm not sure of how flattering it is, because I do actually have a waist which is not shown in these photos!

I also wanted to show you this dress to show I'm not a hater of feminine dresses, which is what I was moaning about in my last outfit post! I do have lots of them, I just want to get a nice pair of black, slim tuxedo pants. Is that so much to ask!? I'll spare you my moaning hah.
I accessorised with red nails and gold accessories such as the headband/necklace I've shown you recently, and the cross necklace. As well as gold rings. I know people think gold rings look tacky, but I love 'em, especially in summer. 

Anyway, sorry I have nothing interesting to tell you about! If that changes and I'm suddenly jet setting off to all different places I shall let you know.

  1. It's all in the small details u c? Like I love your rings and the red nailpolish -> a staple in my eyes. And even your off white knitted cardi, I can see you remixing this piece in so many looks. Enjoy your weekend love.

  2. That cardi looks so cosy, I love it :) x
