If you go down to the woods today…

Cream vintage dress

Another day, another glorious dollop of sunshine! I’m currently getting ready for my trip to London/France, but before I go, I wanted to do an outfit post to show of my latest find, and my new ‘do!

I only get my hair cut about twice a year, so I always like to experiment a bit, and this time I decided to embrace my inner redhead, what d’ya think? I don’t know about you, but on the morning of the day I’m due to go to the hairdressers, I always think my hair is great and that I shouldn’t change it. That must just be pre-haircut jitters though, as I’m always pleased with the end result!

The cream dress is one I bought at the Bristol Vintage Fair at Portland Square last year. Today seemed like the ideal day to wear it, and I’ve paired it with this fantastic wicker picnic basket I found at Bristol Flea Market a couple of weeks ago. I managed to get it for a fiver, but as half of one of the leather straps is missing, and the buckles are extremely rusty, I might have to use this as a storage solution rather than it’s intended use!

*Edit* There were a few more photos to come, but since WordPress/The Internet and this particular blog post don’t seem to be playing nicely today, this is your lot. Definitely going to take a leaf out of @Hayles‘ book and make the effort to start writing my posts in Notepad first in future!

    I love your new hair colour, it really suits you! I’m the same as you, I always think ‘wow, my hair looks fine’ right before going to the hairdressers or if I’m about to dye it myself!

    I love your cream dress, you look so lovely whilst holding the wicker basket. xx

      Thanks : ) Yeah, I hate that moment of doubt before going to the hairdressers – it happens every time! x

    The red hair really suits you! I desperately need to do something to my hair, but I’m a little nervous about getting my hair bleached in India… au natural for me. Enjoy London and France :)

      Thanks Niki – I understand what you mean – when I was in Thailand I had my eyebrows waxed but freaked out as they didn’t understand much English and I lay there convinced I was going to leave the salon bald! x
