Winter Fishnets


Skirt - New Look

Oh look, I'm wearing yet another high neck jumper... I've built up quite the collection over the past few months but was definitely in need of a navy one so I can wear my fave colour combo form - navy and camel/tan - in jumper form. I found this beaut on the New Look website - it's got a slight high low hem, but I wear pretty much all tops tucked in to something high waisted cos that's how I rolllllllll. Anyone else do that?

Gradient Glitter Nails


I've never really been that into to nail art, probably because I'm lazy af with nails. But seriously, who has time to sit there for 15 minutes painting their nails then another 15 hours waiting for them to dry, just for them all to be chipped the next day. When I've got false nails on though, they do seem to dry quicker and chipping is just non existent, so apparently my nails are just shit then...


I used a Ciate polish in Snow Fall over the top of Espresso by Barry M. I packed Snow Fall onto the bottom of the nail, wiped all the excess off the brush back into the bottle, and then kind of spread small amounts of the polish halfway up the nail.

Yeah, describing skills are on point there...

I wasn't really liking the Matte and glitter together, so I put a layer of Barry M top coat over it all.

I think I prefer glossy to matte anyway. I am also still yet to find a matte polish that doesn't look streaky. Any suggestions?

I cannot even tell you how long I have wanted a black high/roll neck jumper for. I have black high neck tops that go with everything, and they're all well and good until I'm dying of the cold because it's winter and they have no sleeves. I've literally been on the hunt for the perfect black high neck jumper for months, but I could mainly only find really thin ones that were more like little long sleeved tops than jumpers. To be fair, I don't think I ever searched that hard. I'm sure there are loads of black roll neck jumpers around everywhere and I could have found one pretty quickly - I clearly was never that bothered about finding the perfect one... I did finally spotted this ribbed jumper on the New Look website - I'm really into ribbed tops at the moment, so couldn't pass it up.

Tucked into distressed denim Levi's over the top of fishnets - had to edge it up a bit. It was actually freezing on the day we took these photos, which is obviously normal for this time of the year but (1) I hate the cold, and (2) I was half expecting it to be warm and sunny out because it hasn't been that cold recently. On went the oversized faux fur.
