OOTD & Some Blogs To Check Out


   I always look so smug when my boyfriend takes my pictures.  This is what I wore a few days ago to meet up with my friend for lunch.  My boyfriend seemed to think this outfit was weird but I love long dresses and skirts and wanted to make this summer dress work for winter.

I'm wearing:
Sweater: H&M Divided (Fall 2012)
Maxi Dress: ASOS Petite (Similar here and here)
Scarf: Zara (Fall 2012)
Shoes: Topshop (Fall 2011)
Lips: Sleek Lipstick in Papaya Punch

  I also included a shot of my brand new pretty socks.  I was complaining that I had no socks left so my boyfriend threw in a few pairs from Topshop as part of my anniversary gift.  He said they were "very Christine" which was right because I already owned an identical pair but I could definately use another.

    I want to say a huge thank you to Sam at Samuel James Morris, Katie at Champagne Lifestyle On A Lemonade Budgetand Paulina at This Girl Loves Chic.  All three of these lovely bloggers nominated me for the Liebster Award.  If you have a moment please go check out their blogs!  I have done a post on the Liebster Award before and don't want to do a full on post again. I will be doing a post sharing other blog links soon so watch out for that.
