Outfit | Hand Me Up Dress

I've been debating the title for a little while with this post - Is a hand me down when you get given an item of clothing from an older relative? Because if it is, then today's dress is a 'hand me up'... After Christmas my younger sister decided to have a massive clear out of her clothes, and never one to miss an opportunity, I went full on scavenger mode & dug out the best bits! One of my faves being this beautiful forest green skater dress* from Primark.

The dress* initially jumped out to me because of the colour - I love that it's green (and different to black) but also because of the shape it gives. I'm a huge fan of a skater skirt because it gives my boyish frame a bit more shape, and who doesn't love that princess like floaty skirt effect when you twirl! Like me, my sister is a huge fan of Primark, I don't think she'd have paid too much for this dress but the quality of it's really good. I'm looking forward to wearing this throughout summer as well! Now Christmas is out the way with, bring on the sunshine!

I've really been enjoying the over the knee boot trend that's going around at the moment because it brings so many more opportunities to wear dresses & skirts and still be super cosy warm. I don't feel like these boots have left my feet for a good month or two, they're just so versatile & so damn comfy! Another really versatile item is my trench coat, along with the boots I think this has to be one of my fave purchases of 2014. I love chucking it over clothes as a cover up or layering it with chunky knits for colder times. Love, love, love it!

On a side note I'm starting a Jewellery Design course tomorrow. Eeep! Wish me luck! I'll let you all know how it goes!

How have you guys been adjusting to getting back to work? I hope it's not been too tough.
