Outfit: White shift dress and black duster

Duster Coat: Boohoo (similar)
Clutch: Whistles
Ring: Lola Rose (similar)
Heels: Kurt Geiger (similar)

Fashionchick challenged me to style this classic white shift from Therapy as part of a competition they're currently hosting. By voting for your favourite look you could win £150 to spend at House of Fraser! Click here to enter. 

You can never go wrong with monochrome so I teamed the dress with my trusty duster from Boohoo (this is from last year but you can find similar here) and Whistles clutch, with purple and gold accessories to add a bit of colour.

Outfit: Navy midi dress and mac

Trench coat: Zara (similar here or here)
Dress: ASOS White (similar)
Sunglasses: ASOS
Flats: Zara (similar)

I spent last week in Rome and I am seriously missing that city! The men in my family are real rugby fanatics so the Six Nations provided a good excuse to go over to Italy and combine the match with a little city break. I'll do a full travel post soon but for now, this is one of the outfits I wore during the trip, pictured here at Villa Borghese. The weather was gorgeous; sunny and warm enough to go bare-legged and wear lightweight coats (such a nice change after months of wearing heavy winter coats!)

I love this dress from the ASOS White collection - it's really simple and easy to wear but the backless detail adds a little something extra. This is the first time I've worn it because it's been too cold and I think it's sold out, but you can find similar here.

Lust of the week: Topshop Suede Culottes

Regular readers of my blog will know I absolutely love culottes - they've featured in many an outfit post and will continue to do so for a long time (in fact there's one coming up...) They're more practical - and slightly cooler - than a midi skirt, and they're equally suitable for the office as they are for a night out, making them really versatile. 

These Topshop culottes combine all that with one of my other favourite trends this season: suede. It's everywhere with the 70s trend but I've also seen it used in more minimal and tailored pieces, and is a refreshing change to leather (although I'm not sure my love for leather will ever die).

#AllInTheJeans with Miss Selfridge

Last weekend I was invited down to the Miss Selfridge store in Liverpool to try out their new Lizzie jeans, and create three different outfits with them. With the help of lovely personal stylist Rachel, I spent the morning in their Dressing Room, trying on loads of gorgeous clothes and creating different looks with the jeans (and gorging on cupcakes in between!) 

The jeans themselves are just what you want in a skinny; slightly difficult to get into (I'm talking jumping up and down and yanking up the waistline) but once on they fit perfectly and hug all the right places. I opted to pair them with these green snakeskin heels because they're such a statement shoe (and surprisingly comfy) and used different tops to create the three different looks.

Beauty: Top 5 skincare products for dry/sensitive skin

Beauty is something I rarely talk about on the blog. I love makeup but I tend to stick to the same products and rarely experiment so it would make a very dull blog indeed. Skincare, on the other hand, is something I'm really passionate about and to me, it's more important than makeup. I'm the kind of girl who likes to pop out to the shops with no makeup on and not look like a complete ogre, so a good skincare regime is a must. Plus, what's the point in great makeup if you don't have a good base?

I'm prone to eczema so my skin is sensitive and gets really dry - especially in winter (sexy) - so finding products that are both super moisturising and won't aggravate my skin is a must. These are my three current favourites - I use the Elizabeth Arden moisturiser for day and Jurlique for night, which is a really luxe cream that isn't too heavy but is just enough to feel like you're giving your skin a real treat at the end of the day. I use the Origins mask a couple of nights a week when I feel it needs some extra moisture. 

La Roche-Posay is a bit of a cult French skincare brand, and I am so glad it came over to Britain a few years ago. I use this cleanser and toner at night, and it is really light and effective, perfect for sensitive skin, and I can instantly feel my face relax when I use it.
