Outfit: Cobalt Concession Dress

Hi guys, hope everyone's okay & enjoying the Autumn chill we've been having & that feeling of crunching leaves under your feet I don't know about you but it makes me really giddy and excited for Christmas. 
I've been at my current job now for the last two weeks now and it finally feels like everythings coming together. It's scary being the 'newbie'... Moving house, starting a new job & especially making new freinds has been a really daunting process for me. I've never really been subject to change & boy was this a big one, but I finally feel at a point where things feeling a bit more routine, I'm making new friends & the pieces of the puzzle are coming together.

After my first week at work, last Friday we met with a few friends for a couple of drinks in the city. I've had this stunningly cobalt blue dress for a little while now, it's one of those purchases that shouldn't nescesarily have happened. I picked it up from a shop I very very rarely go into... Dorothy Perkins! In my hometown the Dotty P's is absolutely tiny and I've found the staff there really unhelpful which in all honesty (and I hate to say it) has put me off from buying there. However, after seeing this in the shop window, I couldn't resist this little jewel coloured beauty. It's from their concession 'Billie & Blossom' range & I absolutely adore it! I think it's a fabulously flattering piece, the cross over front cinched in at the waist & elbow length slim sleves makes my silhouette look really lovely & femine - I can't rave about this enough! I picked this dress up for £25.00 so not majorly expensive, but equally not one of my cheaper dresses however the style & cut of this piece is so timeless I think it's worth every penny and I'll be wearing it for years to come.
Going with the jewel colour theme I've dug out a pair of emerald Primark pumps, I've got these in a few colours because I love the pointed toe style. I used to really hate this look of shoe because I thought it made my feet look like boats (even though I'm an average size 5) but over the last year or so I've been absolutely loving them - I must have matured! I've accessorised with gold tones in my belt, ceramic watch & Vivienne Westwood bracelet, I think ties everything in together.

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
