Five things you need to own NOW

So by the end of October we will have lost an hour of daylight, plunging us all in to premature darkness for the winter months. Without being dramatic, the only antidote to such cruelty is to dress as brightly as possible. So even though the evenings are dark and dreary, your outfit will sing of sunnier times!

the dress

This graphic print dress is a work of art. The floral motif on a dark background is bang on trend, as is the midi length. Nipped in at the waist for a super flattering silhouette, this dress is a ten.

the makeup

If you refuse to budge from neutrals and find comfort in head to toe black you can always brighten your look with this EPIC Carnival palette from Irish brand BPerfect. Cruelty free, with 17 highly pigmented shades, 7 shimmers and 2 highlighters  – you can really go wild with this one.

Well if these boots don’t say sunshine…. THEY. ARE. BEAUTIFUL.

the jewellery

This BIMBA Y LOLA ring set is from their Tilda Collection; a range of resin faceted jewellery with abstract shapes inspired by sand paintings.  Stackable and super cute.

 the bag

This faux fur bag is fun, fun, fun. You can even choose between the  bangle handles or a chain strap making it thoroughly versatile and totally practical (even though it does look like someone’s skinned Elmo.)
