Today I'm Wearing: Mother's Day Edition!

Monday, 11 March 2013

Hey everyone!

And happy mothers day to all you mums - if you're not a mum yet (like me!) I hope you did something nice for your mums today and reminded her how much you appreciate her!

I spent this Sunday with my family of course, went for two nice meals (one last night, which I will be posting a make-up tutorial for!) and one today - since it was a special occasion, I decided to dress up a bit more than usual, and so here is my outfit!



I wanted to wear something dressy enough to pair with high shoes and something suitable enough for the daytime, so I decided to wear my monochrome midi dress - not only are monochrome and midi dresses really in right now, but stripes are too, so it's the perfect combination! I simply paired this with a pair of black tights and black peep-toe wedges - simple but classy. You can find my product review for this dress here.

  • Monochrome Midi Dress AX Paris £18.00
  • Sheer Black Tights Primark £3.00 (can't beat Primark for value!)
  • Black Suede Peep-Toe Wedges £18.00 - I got mine a couple of years ago from a little shop called Shu World in my hometown Southport, but the box they came in says 'Koi Couture'!
Suede Wedges - they go with nearly everything!
However, since it was absolutely freezing where I live today (surprise, surprise) I did have to put a cardigan over this dress as well as my (faux) fur coat, but the two actually went together so well and looked fab!



I got it during the Christmas sales last year and it's one of favourite items I own - it's pretty long but it's only at the sides that it  flows down - as you can see, it cuts off gradually at the back, but it's super flattering!
And of course, I especially love the spikes that run all the way down and on top of the shoulder pads (it also matched my spike bracelet too!).

Spikes galore!

I apologise for the state of my nails!
  • Studded Black Cardigan Outfit £16.00
  • Gold Spikes Bracelet Asos
  • Black/White Stud Ring Primark £2.00


 So that was my look for today, guys - hope you liked it! I will also be posting a make-up tutorial for this look (photo above) very soon, so stay posted! 

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Have a great week!
