Ribbon and Roses

So it would seem as if I am loving lilac accessories at the minute! Starting this blog has really opened my eyes about what I choose to wear. For example, for this outfit, I almost decided against the lilac touch just because the colour was used in my last outfit post. But in the end, I realised that I want my blog to be an extension of me, and how I look day to day, not an alteration of that. Or maybe I need to calm down and stop over thinking everything? Yep. That's probably it!

Yesterday I got my results from my first year of University. Luckily, it was good news, so I went out for tea to celebrate and I thought I would share with you what I wore!

This dress is one of my favourites and is from Topshop; as are my "Little Red Riding Hood" style pumps. It has a criss cross design, with a pretty pink and red rose pattern on top. It also has a lovely cut out design down the back but I don't have a picture of this unfortunately. Next I added my skinny lilac belt from Primark and tied a matching lilac ribbon in my hair.

We went to a beautiful Chinese restaurant and my meal was absolutely delicious. I even had a cheeky cosmopolitan! It was a celebration after all!

What accessories have you been wearing recently?

Memory Lane

Today I'm taking you back to where my love of clothes all began. To be honest I don't remember when it did! I just remember every morning, when I was very young, picking out different dresses from my wardrobe and begging my mum to dress me in one of them! On a day where I wasn't wearing a dress I would sulk and be a little terror to be around for the rest of the day.

This picture is a perfect example of a dress that I would have been desperate to wear (and I have clearly gotten my own way this day!). This dress, still to this day kind of sums up my style. I like to dress very feminine and I am always swooning over vintage style clothing like this. Also I put my hands up and say I am an absolute sucker for a peter pan collar like this one!

I love looking back at old pictures and TV shows and trying to pick out the different trends that have come back around; and if I'm being COMPLETELY honest with you I would say that if I found this dress in my size today, I would definitely buy it!

What did you like to wear when you were little?

Crowned with Flowers

Welcome to My Petite Closet! I'm so excited to finally start my very own blog after years of being hooked on reading fashion and beauty posts. The most challenging thing I found with starting my blog was choosing the URL! I wanted it to be catchy, have some sort of theme and be somehow related to me. This is where My Petite Closet has come from! If you haven't already noticed from the picture, I am definitely "petite". I also have an addiction to fashion and now I finally have a place to celebrate my infatuation with shopping and share it with you!

This picture was taken before an end of year ball I attended recently to conclude my first year of University! The dress is from Topshop, (I believe it is on sale at the minute, so get down to Topshop FAST if you want it before it goes!) and I decided to accessorize  it using a lovely lilac colour with my skinny lilac belt from Primark and frilly lilac socks from Topshop. My heels are from my favourite brand for shoes which is Irregular Choice, (you will notice a recurring theme of Irregular Choice in upcoming posts.) I added my Primark head crown to continue the flower theme from the dress and shoes, and I thought it completed the look nicely! 

Now it is summer time for me which means plenty of time for more outfit posts! Thanks for dropping by :)

How are you celebrating the beginning of summer?
