Milkmaid braids and collars

Dress / Topshop, Tights c/o  / Jonathan Aston Tights please, Brogues / Primark, Fur collar / old, Knot bracelet / RubyRaeLove new colelction

How Autumnal was today in the UK? Me and mum popped over to the allotment because she needed to pick some leeks and I wanted to snap some early morning pictures. Today is the first proper day of half term, and the first thing I go and do is get up at 6 am, the early start was actually just what I needed I got all my to-do list done by 9 am. This is my favourite outfit at the moment, I discovered this Topshop dress lurking on the sale rack, I was so excited when it was in my size, even though it was maternity I had to get it! The tights are my absolute favourite I was sent them by tights please aren't they just the perfect autumnal tights? they are called innocent tights buy Jonathan Aston and they come in black I think I need to get these in all colours. They also do some really amazing leggings  They go really well with the dress and my trusty £3 primark brogues. Mum gets so excited about taking my outfit photos she loves using the camera, she gets very snap happy and she finds it funny taking my photo ( I only told her about my blog 2 months ago)  I will be sharing the outtakes which are pretty hilarious cue me pulling silly faces. 

The fur collar, I took off an old jacket ready to put on my new River Island one but I am yet to find the time to do this. Whats that on your head ella? you are probably thinking For once I have done something a little different with my hair I thought I would be a little more adventurous, I tried the Milkmaid braids and you know what I actually really love the look, having a fuller fringe makes me a lot happier then my messy side fringe, I don't often put my hair up because I feel a bit silly with it up but I am learning to love it.

I am just loving the autumnal weather at the moment even though the clocks have gone back and messed with my brain I am always more inspired during the autumn months, maybe it because I lock myself away with my notebook in my studio until I create something?

I just wanted to let you lovely lot know that I will be running the biggest give away i have ever had on this blog over the next week, lots of lovely things up for grabs. More information coming soon.
