Breaking Out The Burgundys

When I first started this blog it was with the intention that it would cover fashion, beauty, and life but in practice this hasn't happened. Instead, with the exception of one lone prom OOTD, it has evolved into a blog primarily centred around beauty, largely due to my camera shyness and worry about asking for help with the photography. However, whilst beauty and makeup is something I love and enjoy writing about, I feel that this is an awful shame and is something I want to change in order to make my blog more diverse. No-one want's to read review after review of makeup products, do they? After visiting my boyfriend in Portsmouth and taking photos on the beach, it seemed the perfect opportunity to write my first every-day outfit post. 

Autumn has now come to England, bringing with it all my favourite things - warm coats, boots, darker lipsticks and burgundy! Although who am I kidding; I don't let the season stop me from wearing burgundy! This is one of my favourite outfits, incorporating so much of what I love about Autumn fashion...although in hindsight a cardigan may have been a wise choice considering the cold temperature and coastal winds.




What I'm WearingShirt - Select
Skirt - New Look
Boots - New Look
Necklace -Ebay
Tights - Primark (Very necessary in the Autumn cold)
My Camera - Nikon Coolpix P520
Lipstick - Collection Gothic Glam in Seduction
Nail Polish - Barry M Matte in Crush - I'm not technically wearing this polish in the photographs but intended to had I the time. It would have gone perfectly with this outfit so for the purposes of this post, lets pretend I'm wearing it.

Would you like to see more outfit and fashion  posts in the future?

  3. This is lovely! I know what you mean about asking people for help taking photos. So awkward! But it's also awkward taking them yourself. So I guess you just have to pick one haha. I love the setting and the outfit!

  17. Love this outfit - perfect for autumn! Can't believe that is a Collection lipstick you're wearing too, it looks so good! Matches the shirt perfectly, and I'm sure the nail varnish would have as well hahah (I feel your pain)!
