Dress: Topshop//Boots & Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters//Jacket: Zara//Flower ring: Topshop, pirate ring: museum gift shop//

I couldn't resist this swan print dress but it may not have been the best decision to wear it on Saturday- the wind was insane, I was constantly trying to hold down my dress and keep my dignity (I'm not sure it was kept).
You can maybe just about see here that I've had a haircut and also dyed it slightly redder (black cherry to be precise). I've also acquired a pirate ring from the Museum of London Docklands gift shop- it's a treasure trove there, and Tach and I were far too excited by their wares (hence the quill too- which you might have seen on my Instagram @coldknees).

  3. Your hair looks so nice, I love a nice shade of red in hair, my best friend has hers varying red - I don't think you can go too wrong with it! The dress is super nice as well, I need a jacket like yours instead of carting around my coat everywhere... xxx

  27. I love the cherry colour hair! One of the reasons why stopped wearing dresses is because when you live by the sea is so windy and I just got tired of flashing my nickers to everyone!x
