Pretty Grunge

Hello, everybody!

Sorry for the delay in posting this week. I’ve been super busy! I had two team away days with Fossil on Thursday and Friday and then yesterday I spent the day catching up with old friends. I saw one of my best uni friends who I hadn’t seen since graduating in 2012 (how crazy is that?!) then a friend that I used to work with at Debenhams. I’ve absolutely loved the past few days. I know people say that January is usually long and boring but I’m thoroughly enjoying mine this year!

The outfit that I’m going to show you today is one that I wore last weekend for the cinema. I went to see ’12 Years a Slave’. It’s an incredible story – definitely worth a watch.

Unfortunately it was raining that day so I couldn’t make use of the natural light; I had to settle for my (not so) lovely looking corridor.

I always like to go ‘smart casual’ to the cinema, so I thought I would pop on one of my new Primark dresses (originally showcased in this haul post).

I couldn’t resist this dress when I saw it. I’m a sucker for anything floral. The cobalt blue hues were a bonus as I thought they’d compliment my blue eyes and blonde hair.

However, I decided that it needed toughening up to fit in with my ‘pretty grunge’ kind of style – hence the thick black tights, lace-up heeled boots and bed-head hair.

The weather was super chilly, as well as rainy, therefore a snugly scarf was needed! I picked out my cream one to lift the cream tones of the florals in the dress.

I then added my new woolly grey jacket (which I’d purchased from Tesco F+F the previous week in the sale) for extra comfort and warmth.

The final touch was my beautiful metallic Fossil handbag. This added contrast to my colour palette without it being too contradictory.

‘Pretty grunge’, right?
