Oh autumn, you’re my favourite season.
Although you bring me blustery rain, leaves scattered and frosty mornings, you breathe new life in my wardrobe and for that, I adore you.
Without a doubt, this ‘fr’October, my personal style has featured heavily on the blog. Over the past six months, I’ve been trying to become increasingly sustainable when it comes to buying clothes. I’m not just talking about buying clothes from charity shops I’m talking about disposable fashion and how guilty it makes me feel. As testament to this, I haven’t set foot in Primark for months. Months, I tell you!
So today, on this glorious Friday, I wanted to show you my £2 dress. Complete with sailor-esque style collar, it was love at first sight.
Anyone that knows me well, will know that I adore nautical styling. (You can read about my nautical love affair here) It’s originally from the Pins & Needles range at Urban Outfitters, brand new with tags it cost me £2 from my local charity shop, Cats Protection. At the time – August – I wasn’t smitten with the colour but thought it was an investment for autumn. Then these foxy tights came along and stole the show…
At £5.50, they did indeed cost more than the dress. Sometimes, I can spend so long looking for that one piece to tie an outfit together and these foxy friends did just that. At a fiver, it felt like a no-brainer. It takes no mathematician to work out that this is a new to me outfit for under a tenner, grand!

This autumn, I’ve discovered hats again because my hair is a bloomin, overgrown nest! I’m finally going to have my hair chopped today. It’s been almost 3 months since my last cut and I swear, when straightened, my fringe reaches my nose. Just call me Cousin Itt! I’ve been Pinteresting (is that even a verb?) all week and have decided to have…drum roll please…just a trim! Months ago I was desperate to have it chopped into a bob, now it seems my daring has departed me. Look out for an old haircut coming soon!
