The colour palette of this outfit along with the backdrop reminded me of a forest or woodland hence the title. Everyone knows the story when it comes to Autumn fashion. It's burgundy this, black that-and don't get me wrong I love these colours just as much as the next guy but at the same time, I thought it would be fun to mix it up a little tiny but! This emerald green adds a nice vibrancy to the photo while the fur gilet adds a bit of warmth. Against this backdrop it all looks quite nature-y I suppose.
Trips in to town are always necessary once in a while. This outfit is from a few weeks ago, just when the weather was starting to get chillier. Hence, the big coat. I don't know about you, but I love,love,love Autumn weather. The leaves, and the sun and mist make the perfect backdrop!
The backround here however, was taken at a great little spot with loads of amazing grafeti around. Something I've always noticed about Dublin city is the level of amazing grafeti!

Yes, I've broken the big wool scarves out and I don't care. I for one, absolutely love winter. So the sooner the colder weather comes the better. This scarf is THE warmest thing I own, it's so heavy and such good quality. If there's one thing I love it's an accessory that adds so much to an outfit. I got this last year during the River Island sale for a €8 bargain, reduced from €20 and you're likely to be seeing much more of it in the coming months and I make no apologies for it!
I've got to admit I'm not usually one for spending a large amount of money on a single item, particularly with makeup. As far as money goes, I try to get the most out of what I have. Extravagant pieces, whether it be fashion or makeup related, are never usually on my radar, with the exception of this fabulous Dior Lipstick. Beauty related posts are also something that I wouldn't be into that much, as I've mentioned before. However, on the rare occasion that I do find a makeup item that I adore, sometimes they're just too good not to rave about!
This fabulous product has gorgeous deep blue and black packaging with the Christian Dior initials at the top. Let's be honest, the packaging is probably the real reason why I went for this lipstick. As for as the consistency of this product goes, it's not unlike Mac. Having said that, red lipstick and I, don't always see eye to eye. I'm pretty picky with them. Considering I don't have nice teeth anyway and the fact that they're not sparkling white makes me a little weary to wear any pinky, orange, red toned lipstick as it just makes my teeth look worse. So if I do buy a red lipstick, I always look out for blue toned red lippies. This way you're less likely to get that orange-y toned lip colour and is also why I love this lipstick so much!
It's a hefty price, no doubt, but think of it as an investment piece. If you're a lipstick person then why not treat yourself?! It's the perfect look for when you're in a rush! Hassle free!
