Polka dots and leopard spots

This is an outfit i wore to go out with the mr last week, we went to see resident evil which was ok but I'm sure i could have lived without seeing it. I wanted something comfy but also something that i'd  not worn for a while. The spending challenge means i need to shop my wardrobe but i like to show outfits you've not seen before so off to the back of the wardrobe i went (unfortunately it doesn't take you to Narnia but you can find a gem or two in there!)

I decided on this dress from New Look which i got about a year ago, i also have the same one in a lovely burgundy colour I think i paid £24.99 for the dress.  I wore my Torrid leopard print cardigan that i got when we went on holiday to Florida. The dress is a size 20 and fits well you can definitely size down it's a great length for me too i could wear it with or without the tights but as it getting colder now i opted for my wool tights from asda. The cardigan is a size 3 i have no idea what that means in numbered sizes but it fits, it's a little bigger than i liked but the size 2 was a bit small on me.

I wore my hair in my snood as i was having the worst hair day ever and nothing seemed to go right. I really want to get another snood but I'm still deciding on colour, i think they are great for keeping your hair out of the way or controlling it when its misbehaving! 
The mr was wearing his new jumper (which is so nice i want one) and posed for a picture for me
