Dressing like a 5 year old...

Whenever I wear this dress, I am always accused of dressing like a 5 year old and the fact that I wore similar pinafores when I was five (and the fact I look about 12) does make it difficult to disagree. Recently I have been obsessed with layers and this Autumn inspired outfit has been one of my favourites. 

Dress: River Island, top: H&M, jacket: H&M, belt: vintage, tights: Primark, shoes: Marks & Spencer
 This top is one of those which only works when it is layered under something- the fit is downright odd, especially round the hem, but I love the fluted sleeves and they are wonderfully swooshy! 


Wearing some gorgeous Crown and Glory bobby pins. I have written before about how much I love Crown & Glory and these bobby pins are so easy to wear. I never know what to do with my hair but these are understated enough to wear every day and add enough interest without being overpowering.


 Finished off with a pair of my most practical shoes- I think I need to invest in some more brogues for this Autumn!


How do you jazz up your hair? Where do you buy brogues from?

You look lovely - can't beat a pinafore! I loved them when I was 5 and still do now. Plus the brown and orange combination looks lovely on you.
