Fire Engine Red








I don’t actually think ive ever been a big hat person, ive usually stuck to headbands. But this autumn ive been catching myself on the lookout for them, what is going on??
I actually have a feeling its because of my fringe!! Weirdly enough..because im a fairly lazy person when it comes to my hair after I have it coloured im good with it for about 2 weeks and then I start putting it in a bun or pinning it back, so going and getting a fringe was a bit of a joke to my friends because its just an added thing to do in the morning (what can I say I like to sleep in)

I was thrifting last week and went up to the counter to pay and this gorgeous little red cap was sitting there all lonely, and I instantly wanted it!! So far I have worn it twice and it just goes with everything, even if it is a bright red colour.

Since last week I have been on the hunt for the perfect sewing machine and classes to learn how to use it once I get it haha and so far this is at the top of my wish list. Its just too perfect for words. Before you know it I will be whipping up more headbands and altering my dresses!!

I will be heading to the We heart vintage sale on Saturday I haven’t been to this one before and its just down the road from me so ill be snapping away on my camera and showing you all the goodies im sure ill find over the weekend here is a little interview of the ladies behind it on the Winifred and Bance website if you want to have a snoop..

I also found this cute little skirt thrifting last week and I have the urge to take it up a few lengths (I think it would be so much cuter just a tad shorter) it has sea shells printed all over it (gasp..too cute) and on Sunday I made some double layer cupcakes.. after cursing my oven for having weird settings and making them rise wrong grrr I decided id just make the best of what I had..im so determined to get it right next time.. even with a dodgy oven!!!

(Vintage seashell skirt, side bag, red cap & white sleeveless embroided shirt worn with gifted red Mary Jane heels)

You take great pics! and you look wonderful in a hat! I love to have a hat to throw on in the morning when I don't have time to do anything with my hair--not much of a morning person either ;)

Love the whole outfit and the hat looks great, I too have never been much of a hat person but am loving them lately, particularly for Autumn and Winter, they just finish off an outfit so well. I think the lenght of the skirt is perfect, you're lucky you have the height to look so great in a skirt that length!

The pop of red in the hat really works well with the pattern on the skirt. Great look!

Such a cute outfit! I like the print on your skirt... I'm not a hat person either. I definitely can't pull one off. On the other hand, you look lovely.

Anyway, congrats on being featured on Glamour.com. I'm a new follower!
