Hi everyone!

Lately, the weather has been super hot and sunny in Malta. So to spice things up, the weather decided to be cloudy and windy two weekends ago, how kind of him! And since it was a bit chilly, I opted to layer my outfit with the softest and cosiest garment I own. I got this jacket from DressLily - an affordable online clothing and accessory store. 

The product description on the DessLily website states that this jacket is made from Lycra, but I'm pretty sure that the material is fleecy-like. The hooded jacket, which is also available in grey and coffee, came with a thin leather-like belt, but I decided to not wear it. The only downside to this jacket is that it only comes in one size, but I would say it would still fit a wide range of sizes. 

The rest of my outfit consisted of a simple Raglan sleeve top teamed with a pair of black jeans. For the shoes, I opted to wear a pair of Tiberland look-alike boots I bought a couple of years ago from a local shop. To accessorise the outfit, I simply wore my current favourite ring - the Ganesha Elephant Amulet Ring by Dixi - as well as a thin silver knuckle ring, also from DressLily.

What do you think of this outfit? Have you ever bought anything from DressLily?

OOTD • Spring Florals

Hi everyone!

Regular readers of my blog will surely remember my latest Store Spotlight post, where I introduced you to an amazing online clothing store where everything is sold for just £5.00 - Just For 5 Pounds [read the post here]. I was lucky enough to receive a pretty floral dress from the lovely people at this store, and I couldn't not wear it immediately once I got it, even though the weather was quite cold on the day.

Perfect for the coming Spring/Summer season, this red dress has a floral pattern all over it, making it super fun and girly. To continue with the 'girly' theme of the dress, I accessorised with a dainty collar necklace and a stone ring. Partly due to the not-so-warm weather and partly due to wanting to toughen up this outfit, I layered the dress with my all-time-favourite leather jacket which I literally wear all the time, and finished off the look with a pair of black cut-out boots.

Dress: Just For £5 // Leather Jacket: ZARA // Cut-out Boots: MRP 
Collar Necklace: Dollface London // Stone Ring: Dollface London

What do you think of this outfit? How would you style this floral dress?
