OOTD - Bows, Spots & Pleats
Dress - Littlewoods // Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins // Knitted Bow Headband* - Beau xoxo // Boots - ASOS // Belt - Littlewoods
Wearing my new knitted headband from Beau xoxo, whilst trying not to smile awkwardly & failing miserably! :P Georgie, the owner of Beau xoxo kindly sent it over for me to try out. Her shops stocks lots of cute hair accessories, including these knitted bow headbands, glitter bows, knitted turbans & garlands. I'm not wearing it in the usual way, it doesn't look right on me just pulled over my head, I don't think I suit them that way, but I like it worn like a normal stretchy headband. Makes a change from my velvet New Look one, & keeps my ears much warmer :P
Ring - DIYed // Bracelet - Dolly Darling
If you read my sister's blog, you might have seen this dress before, on her! We live apart now & we keep choosing to buy the same things! Last week we met up & both had the same bag, luckily it hasn't happened with us wearing exactly the same dress yet, that might be awkward! Our mum used to occasionally dress us the same (there's a 2 year age gap!), but wearing the same things now might look a little ridiculous:P
Although whilst in Wales last time, in Bets y coed, I did see 2 fabulous old ladies (think they were sisters, possibly twins but not identical), wearing matching outfits, from top to bottom. I thought they looked awesome, but I don't think anyone else thought so! They were definitely very chic, with long pleated skirts & cream cable knit cardigans. They even had a miniature poodle, which was so cute, but unfortunately not one each :P. I desperately wanted to ask them for a pic, but was too shy! Maybe we should dress up the same, might be fun :P What do you say Charlotte?
