I can't believe it's already October - I've been so caught up in the novelty of starting college, having a new routine and new freedom that I've completely lost track of the weeks. To me it feels as if summer has only just ended - I am still not used to waking up in the dark most mornings, wearing coats and knitted jumpers, or spending the days inside instead of lazing around at the park in the evening sunshine. I've ended up in a bit of a rut with my clothes, as everything is too summery to wear for school, or just doesn't fit the kind of mood I'm in at the moment. The worst of it is, I only realised today that it is my birthday in just over a week, and I will actually be turning seventeen...seventeen. SEVEN. TEEN. That number just seems wholly ridiculous to my 5ft2, whimsical and often immature mind, and I am currently living in a state of complete denial.
Anyway, the lovely Amy of Mod Dolly recently asked me to be the resident blogger for the brand, which means I will be styling a Mod Dolly dress each month and writing a little bit for their blog/website, which you can find here. These are the photos from the first post, where I am wearing the Hanna Check Skater dress.
Whilst shooting we found a car that matched the dress exactly, and despite it not being in the best position to photograph we couldn't help but take some anyway. I wore the dress with my Deichmann shoes, Rokit bag and coat from Topshop. I also enjoyed getting to wear a pair of super cute fox ears from Crown and Glory...I feel like our mutual hair colour means we have some form of spiritual bond, plus when I was in primary school I once told my teacher that when I grew up I wanted to be a fox. Pretty apt hairband for me, really!
The one thing I am pleased about the approaching winter is the fact I can wear my new coat out more often - I've been craving a Topshop coat for years and I finally found the perfect one. It is so cosy and I could literally stay in it forever.
Anyway, I hope you all have a good weekend!
