Grey Marl Mini Mini




Dress & Jacket – Topshop
Shoes – H&M
Bag – Frank & Doll

So, I’ve whacked my Topshop grey marl midi dress on EBAY in favour of a much shorter version. This one is actually from the petite section, before I realised Topshop had brought out a shorter style in the normal range! So that explains the questionable length.

Before Christmas I had my eye on the tweed Zara jacket with leather sleeves but when I tried it on it looked awful on me! It completely swamped me and I just could not pull it off. When I saw this one in the Topshop sale I literally ran to the till. Now that it’s not so freezing I have been wearing it quite a lot and love the way it smartens up a lot of my casual outfits.

These silver brogues were a bit of an impulse buy and to be honest I haven’t worn them a lot but when I paired them for this look I fell in love with them. I never thought I’d dress solely in grey tones but I quite like the overall look.

I know I look like I have been on some kind of tropical holiday but alas I have fallen back in love with a fake tan! I bought some of the St Moritz tan while in Scotland and I know I am going to become addicted!!

Thank you to everyone for all the comments on my last post, I really appreciate them.

    1. I know, the price tag meant I wouldn't buy it full price. I am a sucker for a sale tag though.

  13. So much love for this look! The dress suits you so much and the coat is AMAZING. Plus the brogues definitely look perfect with the outfit. Also I am so jealous of your tan, I think I need to get my mitts on some St Moritz, I've heard only good things!

  19. Adore this outfit-love how you've teamed the cool grey tones together! I've got that dress from Topshop Petite haha, didnt think the midi version was as wearable. Your tan looks gorgeous aswell, St Moriz is my new favourite ever, its so easy to apply and so cheap! Hope you've had a good week X

  25. I LOVE this! I've been wanting that coat for sooooooo long now. The horse print blouse is sold out now (I tried exchanging it for a smaller size but with no such luck). If you still want one I found one for sale on a blog! http://sparklingfootstepsshop.blogspot.com/

    I take full responsibility if you break your shopping ban haha x

    1. OH NO!! I have the cream Zara horse print blouse so I guess I shouldn't complain too much but I LOVE yours! Thanks for sending me the link, I had a look and it's too big but I'm half glad as I really want to keep to this ban! xx

  28. Such a gorgeous outfit, simple but chic. I've been lusting after that Topshop dress for a while but can't decide what length to get! And that coat is so so nice, you're lucky you found it in the sale - the Topshop sales here weren't that great~ ox

  29. Mo this is one of my favourite outfits I've seen you wear. The silver brogues jazz up the grey very nicely and how the hell have I never seen that gorgeous Topshop coat before?! Maybe we didn't stock it in my store...either way, if you ever put the coat on ebay, let me know! xx
