he loves me, he loves me not...





Crochet dress - H&M
Daisy headband - Primark
Brogues - River Island
Lace socks - Miss Selfridge
Bangles/earrings - Accessorize
Turquoise ring - Spitalfields Market


Today I finally got my hair recoloured after seven weeks worth of roots and faded ends. I think this will be my final flourish with the red. I love the colour dearly, probably ranking numbero uno of all the colours I've been, but the maintenance is beyond belief and I cannot justify the upkeep. Colour care products can and do work; but sadly, red will inevitably always fade. I am already planning what colour to toy with next and it shall either be a rich coppery-ginger or white blonde with peachy sections weaved through. My hairdresser will probably refuse to pacify me with either for fear of my hair falling out!


I bought this dress last weekend, but today was its first outing, as I had to track down a suitable under-layer for fear of exposing myself to the world. I used a simple slip I had from another dress and it seemed to do the job. I really love the flair 70's sleeves and the detailing around the hem. I wore it quite casually today but feel you could also dress this up for an evening soiree with some heels and a skinny belt perhaps. I don't feel I really need to justify the headband - I love daisies and for a £1 from Primark, it was a no brainer. I also feel very proud that I took my first steps today in the shoes and socks combo, something I've wanted to embrace for ages now, but never found the right outfit to do so with. 


I hope you are all enjoying the extended weekend. I am venturing to London tomorrow after my morning Zumba class. I need to return a few items of clothing and then pick up some 'essentials' from MAC, ie: foundation and powder. I am also hoping they have Candy Yum-Yum lipstick in stock there too as I have concluded that yes, I really do need another pink lippie!

Ooo i'm voting for the white blonde as i'm interested in seeing how that'd look with the peach!

Oh Milly! Is it sad that I get excited when I see new outfit posts up from you. I love seeing what any one/everyone wears in general. But you always have GORGEOUS photos, and your outfit always has something slightly extra or different.
I'm sad for the red hair to leave you, it is a pain is the bottom though, isn't it.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend
<3

Hi Lovely, You Look Beautiful In These Pics :) Was Just Browsing Ebay For The Daisy Chain Headband As My Local Primark Doesnt Do It, And I Noticed Somebody (An Ebay Seller) Has Used A Photo Of You As Their Photo To Advertise The Headband, I Think Its Someone Else As Their Location Is Bedford And Your From Essex Arent You? Just Thought Id Let You Know I Saw You Rocking This Look Over Ebay Too Lol xox

Thank you though. x

Hi Milly,

Your hair is so beautiful! How do you get this look? Do you use curling tongs or rollers? Gorgeous outfit too! :)
