Velvet Winter Outfit

Although -3 degrees is probably asking for multiple layered jumpers and scarves, it is not stopping me from sharing my favourite winter outfit so far this year. (which is also kind of warm and weather appropriate…)

First of all let’s start with this gorgeous velvet dress from Zara, one of my favourite stores. I bought this dress for £20 and I actually got more wear out of it than I thought I would! I love this kind of vintage pink colour, especially in combination with the velvet material. I know velvet is extremely on trend right now and maybe even almost over, but I must say that there is so much difference in the velvet clothing I have seen, I did not like the dresses in Primark even though they looked similar to this one. I just prefer the look of this velvet. Zara definitely always gets it right when it comes to trends, it was one of the first high-street stores I saw it in. 

Moving onto the bag, I just got this on the day I took these pictures actually which was last weekend. My family and I drove all the way up to the Lake District where I stumbled upon a cute little shop in Bowness on Windermere called The Hen House. The very first thing I saw when walking into the shop was this beautiful grey bag! I was planning on buying a grey Ted Baker bag which I have had my eye on for awhile. However, I bought this one instead in the sale for £18,50 and I am so pleased with it! I normally don’t have many accessories or bags to show with an outfit post as it is expensive to keep buying different ones. (and let’s face it I also only have a part-time job no way can I afford that though I wish I could) I think this bag absolutely makes this outfit complete and do visit The Hen House when you are in Lake District because it is the cutest place!

My embroidered boots are from New Look and they are soooo pretty! I am in love with all the flowers and there is even the same colour pink as my dress in the embroidery. The block heel is not high at all which makes them more comfortable to walk in. I do have to say that I was scared they would not fit me at first because they are described as ‘wide fit’ on New Look’s website however they fit perfectly!

My choker is from Topshop and is a must have, so many people have asked me where I got it from as it looks so unique. The design is very well made and it is maybe a little bit more expensive than other chokers but definitely worth it! 

Love, Marlinde x
