Autumn Leaves








Dress - River Island @ ASOS
Boots and Bag - ASOS
Necklace - Oasis


Hello loves!

I was wearing this dress in an earlier post and wanted to show it again, as it's one of my Autumn favourites. The lovely, unique floral pattern allows it to easily transform from casual to smart, with a little help from accessories. It's incredibly comfy, providing me with a perfect dress for that day to night transition, and to top it all off, I got it on sale from ASOS last month - Yay! 

I decided to be one with nature and have a wee photo-shoot at the bottom of my garden/jungle. I always love the shades of orange and brown that the leaves turn towards the middle of Autumn and start of Winter.  It adds so much colour to the usually very green canvas. There is such a dark and spooky presence in the air with the arrival of Halloween, and the inner goth in me loves it! I've already looked out the Addams Family and Beetlejuice DVDs to watch over the weekend. Taking inspiration from this, I've decided to dress up as one of my childhood style icons, Wednesday Addams. (I was quite the little emo back in my day!) Another ghostly icon was Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas, but as per usual, I haven't left myself enough time to plan such an outfit! Wednesday is perfect for the last minute people like me. Great if you don't have enough time, and classically spooky enough to still scare people!
