Slap on the wrist. Well and truly. It's taken me over a month to photograph and blog this outfit, despite nearly everyone in the world (I'm exaggerating of course, what I really mean is around 50 people on Instagram) asking me about it. But y'know, as it happens, I'm wearing the look again in a London-why-so-cold induced panic. Nothing like a knit and something short to balance out an outfit and get the daily commute-goers talking.

Wave stripe eyelet knit jumper, Yesstyle; Black velvet and tulle dress (worn underneath), H&M; Boots, c/o Linzi Shoes; Longchamp Le Pliage tote bag; Mirror pendant necklace, c/o LHC Jewellery; Cat face watch, c/o Ever Ours, Crown ring, Ever Ours.

I spend approximately 55% of my time in a cosy knit. 40% in my pyjamas (I have day and night versions, you see) and the other 5% in some semblance of clothes appropriate for parties. This wavy stripe knit is from Yesstyle and crops up in far too many of my outfits at the moment. My only qualm with it is the strange bubble hem, but I can deal with it in exchange for a fluffy stripe and eyelet knit. Yum. Paired it with my H&M velvet and tulle dress (an example of that 5%...) here, and my stack heel boots for work, as well as my faithful Longchamp bag. I'm really pleasantly surprised at how un-bashed up my Pliage has stayed so far!

Accessories wise, you'd be seriously hard pressed not to find me in this LHC Jewellery mirror pendant necklace recently. It draws plenty of Snow White comments, is relatively practical for sneaky lipstick touch ups and adds a quirky talking point accessory. Cue me wearing it at every opportunity. I'm also in love with my cat face watch by Ever Ours - remember, feline friends are for life, not just for timekeeping (which I am terrible at, fyi).

Anyway, wrapping this post up with a quick announcement of Sarah as my DVF for Evian giveaway winner. £200 worth of Selfridges gift vouchers and a beautifully designed glass bottle are winging their way over to her as we speak! Until tomorrow, a very happy Thursday to you all.

  12. Very cute watch, Michelle! Have seen one on ASOS but it is indeed always best to support the independent retailers, I'll check out Ever Ours tonight. Really love cute watches even though i don't use it to tell the time, my instinct it always to check my phone first! x

  18. I hardly ever manage to make a jumper and a skirt work together as well as that, but this is definitely the right inspiration; now I have a lovely outfit like this to base my ideas off, thanks! x
