Heidi Sunday

Hello dearest readers!
Let me start by saying I apologise for my lack of posts recently, I have gotten the work bug and simply have not had enough time to take outfit pictures. By the time I have gotten home the sky is a blue hue and not the best for taking photos in my bright old outfits. But I now have a whole two weeks off work, hooray! Which means a lot more time will be dedicated to my blog. 
Anyway with all that out of the way let me talk about this red number I was sporting today. I have always been a fan of all things floaty, colourful or looks like something that should be in an old fashioned musical. I spotted this vintage Austrian dress on ebay about two months ago and was so in love with it but unsure on whether to purchase it. I have always been a lover of traditional Austrian costumes and the connotations to the Sound Of Music and so a few days ago I gave in and bought it. Needless to say I have been spinning and frolicking around in it ever since, including today when I convinced my boyfriend to take a few snaps of me hopping in the grass and amongst the berries. Now all I need is the perfect Autumnal event to wear it properly and make the most of its puffy sleeves and full skirt.

I will be posting lots more this week and updating you on the lovely weekend I have had. Almost October now, time for hot water bottles, chai tea and cosy nights in-exciting.

OOTD: September Tartan

Bag~Chairty shop

Hello lovelies! I can't believe we have already breezed into September, is it just me or has this year been going incredibly fast? Brrr, Oh my there was a bit of a chill in the air this weekend, it is starting to feel all Autumnal-my favourite season of them all!  I went to Hyde Park festival on Saturday and was absolutely chilled to the bone by midday, it rained and poured and then the sun came out and we all got sun burned. It was a very weird mix of weather, but the music was nice and it was great to have a day off work and wear my new dress. I spotted this tartan number in Primark at the beginning of the week, I saw a blur of red patterned fabric in the corner of my eye and immediately fell in love with it when my head turned. Primark have some really nice things at the moment, I need to pick up some bits and bobs next week and might try and grab some of the things I spied before. For only £15 I thought this dress was a great buy and the collar and bow detail really add to the sweetness of it. As usual despite the rain I decided to go a bit mad with colour co-ordination, hence the red bows etc. I think this season I really need to invest in a pair of trousers, as I officially own none except Pajama trousers- if only they were acceptable to go to work in!

How has everyone spent the first week of the new month? Are you looking forward to the new season?
