The Autumn Chill

I cannot express how happy I am about the return of the cold Autumn weather! It is glorious! I've never been one for the Summer - the fashions don't inspire me because frankly during those months I'm just too sweaty to care about anything! 

We are currently looking after our friends adorable little Jack Russell, Fred. So yesterday we got home from work and needed to take the little guy for a walk - this is what I wore;

Cardigan - Urban Outfitters Renewal, Dress - ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Shoes - River Island.

I love this dress. It's a knitted jersey so unbelievably comfortable but also lovely and warm! Living on an Island means it's constantly windy so I added the cardigan just to be safe! The dress sits perfectly at my waist, providing a super flattering hour glass illusion. 

I am currently having a hair trauma, so I apologise for the lazy up-do I've got going on in this post. I'm in an absolutely quandary as to whether I should keep growing it or do a Miley and crop it! I currently hate it as I feel it looks so scruffy and has no shape or style and is just a mop of nothingness! But everyone keeps telling me to keep growing it which almost makes me want to cut it off even more!

She might be a crazy bitch but that's a seriously fabulous pixie crop!


I am seriously loving looking after Fred because anyone that knows me will tell you I am obsessed with dogs. All I want is a dog of my very own but at the moment we aren't really at home enough to have one! But look at how gorgeous he is;

And another bonus of walking him daily is that I get to see this incredible view of the island I live on;

This post does slightly veer off of the fashion track so I do apologise but I thought I'd share a little of my life with y'all at the same time as sharing my outfit! 

Lots Of Love,
