 dress and bag from jessica buurman // fedora from choies // boots from h&m

University is hard work, I am so behind on my lecture notes and every lecture feels like lots of information are just being thrown in your face and all you can do is to slap it into your notepad and pray that you will somehow understand it when  you go back through it. I barely have time to sew because I've completely occupied myself with coursework, lecture notes, cooking, cleaning, seeing friends and oh, badminton! 

In case you haven't noticed, the long hair is gone! I thought it was finally time to rid the horrid coarse bleached ends and yes, I re-dyed my hair because I've got too used to having the ends bleached! I'm in the process of dye-ing it silver with the Direction hair dye, hopefully it wont turn out too bad...

The location for this shoot is actually just the end of the road of my student accommodation, it was raining and I didn't want to go far, so the garage men kindly let us have the vintage car in the background, made in the 1956, possibly painted by hippies in the 60's due to the paint job of the flowers visible in the last picture (yes we also had a little chat with them about the history of this car, which was actually very interesting). 

I adore this dress, from the pattern to the shape, it has a somewhat old-Victorian vibe, I'm a sucker for plaid, so I was thrilled to find this lovely cool toned dress from Jessica Buurman. I decided to add a hint of modernness to the outfit by wearing a (cool) fedora and a small satchel for a pop of colour.

Now that I have Natalia as my human tripod, I should have no excuses to have a lack of posts and dull locations! Finger crossed that I will be writing again soon :)
