OOTD | Floral dress & jersey blazer

Poppy Lux | Outfit post | #fbloggers

Morning pickles! My outfit posts have returned to my stairwell this evening as despite it being the weekend I just haven't found the time to dash outside. I wish I could show you all around where I live, it really is beautiful!

My bare legs might be brave, but it all honesty today I've only wandered around a deliciously heated garden centre to pick up some Christmas decorations. Tell me I'm not the only one getting excited?

Speaking of Christmas, this absolute beauty of a frock is very seasonal, don't you think? It love its vintage-esque floral print and it was high up on my wishlist ever since I saw Fox + Feather stocked it.

My hair needs a brush, but all in all I rather like this all together! I wasn't used to the relaxed fit of this jersey blazer from the Matalan Statements Collection, but twinned with my beloved leathers over the top it's definitely more "me". That's the beauty of classic pieces like this; it doesn't matter who you are or what your style is - there's always a way to make it fit in your wardrobe.

I'm still recovering from Friday night when my lovely PR agency won an award for "Outstanding Small Consultancy" and I somehow agreed to doing karaoke to Last Nite. I'm sure a video will surface at some point online... Oh god.

Shop the look...


  1. Ah, love this dress but it's far too early for Christmas for me.

  2. That's so good about the award, I missed that one. That must have been so exciting. A very grown up outfit for sure. I'm going Christmas shopping while I'm in London this week.
