Today was anticipated with good intentions of finishing my Christmas shopping, but that didn't happen. With a mixture of getting up late, having to go for an eye test (I have wonky eyes, apparantly) and it being bitterly cold, nothing much got done!
Here's what I wore. On reflection, I should have worn several more layers and probably not a dress, but ah well - live and learn, eh?
The shearling denim jacket is from Topshop and the 3/4 sleeve black jersey dress is from H&M.
The cute panda hat is from River Island.
The bag I chose today and pretty much every other day is my Alexander Wang Rocco.
This infinity scarf was an absolute bargain from Warehouse for 90p in the sale last year.
I also decided to wear my Kurt Geiger Isla Mittens. Do you like my nails? There's a few pictures further down showing you how you can do them yourself.
The gloves zip up to create cute leather mittens.
I wore two layers of tights in a vain attempt to keep warm, one plain black and the other black with tan spots. The black tights are from Primark and the spotty ones are from H&M.
Paired my outfit with my Classic Tall Uggs in Chestnut which are a bit old and battered and a bit too big for me, but they keep my feet warm! :)
Here's how I did my nails.
Two coats of No7 Speed Dry Nail Colour in 'Beautifully Black 70'
This is a black with silver specks.
Then I added a rough blob of GOSH Nail Varnish in 'Holographic 549' onto the tip of the nail and spread it towards the cuticle with a dry brush. This doesn't have to be too neat, it was just to give a base colour of silver ready for the next stage.
Next I added a coat of Maybelline Express Finish Diamonds in 'Silver Speed 320/830D' to the tips of my nails and again brushed up towards the cuticle with a dry brush to create a gradient effect.
After waiting a good 15-20 minutes for these layers to dry I added a top coat of Barry M Nail Paint in 'Holograms 244/950' to add a few chunky bits of sparkle. And you're done! :)
Hope you like it!
