In a change to my normal pastel hues, today’s outfit has taken a turn to the darker side to reflect the doomy skies and torrential rain of Manchester! Now I love a good collaboration, especially when it means I can buy the signature styles of labels I love at a price that doesn’t break the bank so when Carven collaborated with Petit Bateau back in 2012 I snapped up a couple of pieces from the range including this amazing collared dress!

I’ve teamed the dress with boots that I bought in the Aldo sale, my trusty ‘Downing’ satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company and my Katie Mullally peg necklace which has become a firm feature of my wardrobe! My nails are painted with Essie’s ‘Toggle To The Top’, a glittery dark red, part of their Winter 2013 collection which I’ve *finally* managed to find in full sized bottles!

I love the combination of navy blue and burgundy as it always makes me feel very chic which given Carven’s French homeland seems very appropriate! Ooh la la!
