My brother took these photos for me when we were visiting my grandparents in Surrey last week. We don’t spend enough time exploring the countryside when we’re there, we’re usually too busy with other things. I really should take the opportunity to go on more adventures in that part of the country though, it’s so pretty and the south of England has a very distinctive atmosphere! This dress is something that I’ve borrowed from my mum. I think it’s supposed to be a tunic top, but it’s just long enough to be worn as a dress! She bought it at her church from a charity called Neema Crafts. Neema Crafts provides work and training for disabled people in Tanzania, and they produce the prettiest African products. As well as this dress I use a tie dye bag, a headscarf, necklaces and hairclips made by them and it’s incredibly reasonably priced. This dress only cost £10! They don’t have an online shop yet, but they will be launching one at the end of the year, so I will let you know when that happens!Outfit Details: Dress, Neema Crafts / Cardigan, ASOS (Old) / Gilet, ASOS (Old) / Chelsea Boots, New Look / Necklaces, A Gift
I bought both this tassely cardigan and my gilet (it’s called a teddy gilet, I guess cause it makes you look like a teddy bear!) from ASOS a while ago. Neither of them are particularly practical – the cardigan has holes in which does not keep me warm, and usually if it’s cold enough for a fluffy coat like this you want it to have long sleeves too! Worn together however, I think they make a perfect autumnal combination of layers. Perfect for twirling around in a forest The weather is very cool here at the moment and I kind of like it. It’s crisp and refreshing, the leaves are turning orange and it makes me excited for autumn!
