OOTD- feeling cute and girly

Hello Lovelies!

Last week me and my boyfriend went shopping in Maidstone, I didn't get anything overly exciting to show you but I did wear an outfit that I think is worth sharing. I was going for a cutsie girly look that still made me look my age...


Dress- New Look
Socks- Primark
Brogues- ASDA
Satchel- Miss Selfridge
Sunglasses- New Look
Necklace- River Island
Bracelets- Pandora and Links of London 
The dress was new earlier this summer from New Look and a steal at only £14.99.I love the neutral autumnal colour and the pretty lace insert, plus it's the type of dress that flatters my hourglass figure as it's tight at the top and clinched in the waist, but floaty over the rest of the body. It's quite short as dresses go so I teamed it with some black over the knee socks from primark as I've always found them the best and cheapest at around £2.99 for two pairs (I'll find out exactly how much they are, I can't quite remember!). I love wearing over the knee socks with dresses, skirts and shorts as it can look really cute but at the same time a little bit sexy (they'll defiantly be a blog post about how to wear socks with your outfits soon). For shoes I chose my trusty asda brogues as they go so well with socks and their tan colour really went with the colour of the dress. They also give a bit of an edgy look to an other wise very girly outfit.

For jewellery I wore my staple pandora and links bracelets to match my socks and my favourite long gold heart pendant that was in keeping with the autumnal colours.
Looking at the cloudy weather today I can't believe it was bright enough for sun glasses a week ago, but it was so I wore my bargain £5.00 thick black framed new look sunnies. I used to have aviator glasses, but I found they broke easily and never fitted right, so these ones I got for my holiday this summer have been perfect. 
I didn't have much stuff to take so I took my brown satchel with gold buckles that I got from Miss Selfridge last year. I think a satchel is a must have in any girls handbag collection because they are such a practical size and go with nearly any outfit. I also thought my satchel went well with the little girl aspects of my outfit.
What do you think of my shopping trip look? Do you have any cute girly outfits or items that you love to wear? 

Love Meg
