These photos were taken a long time ago back at the beginning of September but for some reason I have never shared them. I don't know why as this dress has to be one of the best things I have bought this year! It's completely out of my comfort zone- leopard print and a relaxed fit are not what I would usually go for but I really love it. It is the perfect dress for both work and play and I love how free it makes me feel. Soft cotton jersey and a fun print will always be a winner in my book! This year has definitely been one of change and experimentation- I never thought I would move to Cheltenham or chop off all my hair but I did both of those (and more!) in 2014 and I'm excited to see what 2015 brings!

I also experimented with the parting in my hair to give myself a faux fringe and a bit of volume and I really like how it turned out. That's the beauty of short hair, it can look really different with very little effort which I never found with my longer hair. I am on the lookout for some hairclips and headbands to jazz it up even more, do you have any recommendations?
I think the shape and design of the dress is really unusual and although it is a relaxed fit, the contrast waistband helps to make it look less shapeless. I managed to get the updated version of my beloved Clarks loafers but I haven't forced myself to make the switch yet, this pair are just so darned comfy!
What's the best thing you bought this year? Any recommendations for jazzy hair accessories?
