Just a quick outfit of the day from when I went to see the Stanley Kubrick exhibition in London. I found this old Topshop dress hanging out at the back of my closet during my last clear out and decided it was one lace dress I was not ready to get rid of yet (even though I have an irrational amount of lace dresses). I paired it with some 'witchy' lace up boots that have been my absolute favourite to pair with daintier dresses recently. And of course I just couldn't resist topping off the look with a bowler hat.
I have gotten a few questions about the loose curls I usually wear my hair in and how I achieve them so here's a long overdue video tutorial detailing just that. I say tutorial in the loosest sense because I'm not a hairdresser and I really don't think I have any groundbreaking tricks to teach you but this is the way I curl my hair almost every time I style it so I hope you find it interesting.
Autumn? Is that really you? Hope you'll stay around for good this time because you've always been my favourite season to dress for. Give me all the jackets, cardigans and knits to layer over my dresses. I got this tan leather jacket in the Zara sale last year (it was down to £30 from over £100 yaaassss) and my first thought was: will I look as cool as a Survey Corps member in this? I still don't know the answer for sure but one thing I'm certain of is that I've gotten a heck of a lot of wear out of it, the tan colour is such a nice change from black but still neutral enough to go with most things in my wardrobe. Like this Black Milk dress for instance. Y'all know I'm a sucker for cute and quirky prints but this one just takes the cake. Little soy fish bottles. And if you look closely there's a finished, empty one with it's lid unscrewed. I die.
I've just realised I wore these same dungarees only a couple of posts ago but gahh I hope you guys don't mind, at least it's a true testament to how much I love them and also a look at a different way to style them. For some reason this outfit reminded me of Bob the Builder at the time (must be the dungarees + yellow combo) so there's an unlikely style icon if I've ever seen one.
