If I Lived in Yharnam OOTD

Hi everyone,

Today I thought I’d share a little OOTD post, something I want to try doing more regularly as they are easier to photograph and write than some of my other posts. My schedule is going to be very tight for the next few months but I really want to try and put out more content.

Today’s outfit was inspired by my Bloodborne shirt and what I would probably wear on a very casual day in Yharnam.

I’ve had this plaid set for years, I think I made it in 2012 and it’s still going strong. Both the skirt and cape are full circles so they were very easy to cut and sew.

I do like the fullness of a circle cape, fitted ones I find can be a bit restrictive. I really like that the skirt on it’s own can be comfy and casual but having something to match really makes it that little bit more stylish. Also you couldn’t be seen in Yharnam without a cape!

The shirt is from Insert Coin Clothing, a brand I discovered when shopping for my SO’s Christmas present. They were having a sale at the time so this is one of the things I picked up for myself!

BB8

The shirt isn’t extremely fitted so it can be a big baggy in the waist, but that doesn’t bother me as I usually wear it tucked in. It makes for a nice casual shirt to wear with circle skirts.

BB6

The reversible hairbow is from Two Lippy Ladies and I received it in a goody bag from a local high tea last year.

I’m also wearing this Karolina Laskowska choker, I bought this as I couldn’t buy the full set of the Natasza set but loved the lace. I honestly didn’t expect to fall in love with this as much as I did and I really want to buy more of her accessory pieces!

I am wearing Besame Cosmetic‘s American Beauty lipsticks, one of my favourites as it can look anywhere from hot pink to a deeper red depending on your skintone and clothing.

And we’ll finish off with a dorky photo because why not?

I hope you enjoyed this little OOTD post, let me know if you enjoyed it or would want to see more on the future!

A New Skirt OOTD

Hi all,

Sorry I’ve missed a couple of posts, I haven’t been feeling too well recently and have had a few days off work. Anyway last week I managed to rustle up myself a new skirt out of some gorgeous fabric I found so I thought I would show it off in an OOTD post!

The fabric is a gorgeous wool blend with a diamondish pattern in pinks, blues and purples! It really reminds me of a wet city in the evening too, as if you were looking into a puddle seeing the reflection of the buildings and cars and people all around.

I did my eye makeup to match and I used both my Urban Decay and Smashbox palettes, both of which I’ve previously reviewed on here.

I’m also wearing my new lipstick which is Blue Velvet by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I had the shade Redrum and I adored the shade and formula, it’s now completely empty now. I felt like something different so I went with this beautiful bright blue. I think it’s a really wearable shade, particularly on me, it’s not too bright and I already wear a lot of blue.

I took my photos at work today as there isn’t any sunlight left by the time I get home anymore. I’ve also reviewed the sweater I am wearing here, this is still an all time favourite and I hope to get at least one more colour of it for winter this year.

I actually made this skirt so that I could wear the pattern two ways. The above pictures show the colours going vertically, and below horizontally.

It isn’t a hug difference but I really liked how both ways looked so I wanted the option! Also I still get a pocket whichever way I wear it which is handy.

I was rushing out of the house and I decided I wanted a bit of jewellery so I chose this amazing Jubly-Umph necklace. I bought it last year I think and it is ‘The Teardrop Lighthouse’ a limited edition necklace which I am so glad I bought. I really love lighthouses and this is such a sturdy but delicate looking piece.

I love putting large circular pockets on my skirts! I find patch pockets much more convenient and it adds a point of difference.

ootd12

I’m wearing my recently reviewed Columbine stockings in the shade Misty. Also apologies for the thread on my leg, had I known I would have removed it! Also I love heeled boots with some fur cuffs as the weather gets colder, I’ve gone through this is my 2nd or 3rd pair and it’s just a style I am obsessed with. This pair is getting a little tattered though so I need to start looking for some more.

OOTD2

Sorry it wasn’t too exciting today. I’ll try to get something up for Thursday otherwise it might just end up being next Monday. I really like this skirt and this outfit, it was perfect for a snug day as it was quite chilly finally! As an added bonus I’ll leave you with a picture of my foundations! It is May the Month of Lingerie so follow my on Instagram for daily lingerie pictures for this month. I’ll try to do a big compilation post at the end of the month too!
