Autumn leaves.

Dress : charity shop originally next /  Jeans : NewLook / Brogues : Primark

My Tuesday has been pretty busy, filled with lots of admin work for business, hot chocolate dates and finishing off my to-do list before my working week starts...I know it will be Wednesday tomorrow half way through other peoples week I start my working week. Today I wore my New favourite dress which i picked up the other day in the charity shop for a few pounds, its so easy to wear and I love wearing it with jeans. As you can probably see I dyed my hair last Tuesday, it was a spur of the moment idea and I went with black cherry  ( can't actually remember the brand ha!). I'd had enough of my natural I wanted new hair colour for the Cosmo awards, and i am a little bit in love with the red, I am not normally a fan and i have dyed my hair a similar colour in the past but when it comes to Autumn/winter I always fall back in love with warm colours hence the new do. 
I love wearing pretty chilled out outfits for when i am working in my studio, every item i wear will inevitably end up covered in either paint, solder or pen so i'm pretty chilled when it comes to what i wear. 
Talking of autumn and winter I have started to plan christmas, my favourite time of year by far. I'm looking forward to layering my clothes and snuggling whilst drinking hot chocolate.
I just wanted to say a little thank you for the kind words about my little illustration post below... you are all too kind...who will be the illustrated blogger tomorrow? 



  1. What a gorgeous dress/tunic - sounds as though it was a complete bargain too which makes it all the sweeter! :-) I always love your casual outfits because they look so put together and yet totally carefree - hope you know what I mean! :-)
