OOTD The Luxe Look

Today I went for the effortless 'Luxe' look. After admiring Lucy's Topshop jumper (I've linked this blog once before, I love it!)- for what seemed like forever, I finally decided I needed it for myself! It's so soft and I love the cute bow detail on the back- little things like that really make an outfit in my opinion. I paired it with a velvet skirt- also from Topshop. It's a really cute body-con skirt with a raised gold spot detail all over and I love the contrast between the baggy, comfy jumper and the smart, dressy skirt. This is exactly the kind of outfit that I adore. It's everyday glamorous, but it's created so easily by throwing on some key A/W pieces and without too much effort.

I know this skirt is going to be a staple piece in my Autumn/ Winter wardrobe because it goes with so many things. You can make it work in the daytime as I've done by pairing it with jumpers, long socks or tights, yet it could be accessorised and worn with heels for a cute evening outfit too.

On a side note, I'm still trying to find different backgrounds for my OOTD's. This one was taken outside my house so it was really convenient but I will try and take some pictures when I'm out and about- providing I find somewhere private enough to take a few photos! 

So what do you think? Do you like the 'Luxe' look?
