Winter Pastels

I have had this dress for a couple of years now. It is very much a spring/summer dress with it's sheer, sugary fabric and yet why not make it into a winter piece by teaming it with some cosy accessories in my shade-of-the-moment grey. I think I can now get some wear out of it all year round.


















Top Shop pastel pink ruffle dress ❖ Zara grey cardigan ❖ John Lewis girl's tights ❖ Office suede shoe-boots ❖ Laura Ashley faux pearl & ribbon necklace ❖ diamond ring ❖ Barry M grey nail polish

I'm also loving grey at the moment, it seems to go with everything! Also tights are a great way to pull more summery pieces into winter, lovely look!

Love the outfit, pink and grey is such a nice combination!

Respons to your question: I actually really liked this MAC polish. I have only tried one of their nail polishes before and I didn't like that one.. But this was great! Easy to get an even result and it hasn't flaked off at all. And the color is really nice as well.=)
