Evening all! I've just got back from a very exciting event held by eBay Fashion, which I'll be posting about over the next few days. Without giving too much away, the event was a celebration of eBay Fashion Outlet's pieces for SS12, and required all of the guests to put on their best styling heads to come up with an outfit which captured the essence of the collection. Suffice it to say, looking at summer clothes for the best part of the evening has made me wish the warmer weather would arrive sooner rather than later, but after today's washout I'm sure the rain is here to stay for a little while longer. Today's outfit was my best attempt at keeping the downpours at bay:

 
Dress- Topshop
Coat- Topshop
Watch- Michael Kors c/o John Lewis
Rings- Topshop, Whistles and c/o Forever 21

I picked up this dress from Topshop towards the end of last year, and it's since become a firm favourite. Although the deep burgundy is a bit of an autumnal shade to be wearing in April (what happened to those lovely pastels we were supposed to be embracing?!), with the weather so gloomy it seemed like an ideal choice. Teamed with another Topshop purchase in the shape of my coat, I was nice and warm, and managed to stay fairly dry too!

How are you finding dressing for the unpredictable weather?
