She'll bring out the best and the worst you can be

Knit: H&M. Dress: H&M. Scarf: Primark. Bag: Matalan. Boots: Primark.

Will you think any less of me, if I tell you that since I've had this dress over 3 weeks ago, I've probably worn it every other day. And I wish I was kidding. It's like my friend says, I get something new, and I wear and wear it, and see how many ways I can style it, so it looks different each week. Then I move onto the next newest thing.
So as you can see, I have my hair up. Extremely unusual if you have been a follower for quite some time. I seem to have i'mtooscaredtowearmyhairup syndrome. I have a bad case of it. But actually I have Emily to thank for today's post. I've been eyeing up her hair bow tutorial for weeks now. But with my lack of hair up knowledge, I tried to master the messy bun first. It took some time and hairspray but I got there.. And took it out to the cinema this week (sorry person behind me, who probably couldn't see!) And actually, I quite liked it. When I asked Littlebum what he thought of my hair, he said "It's a bit sloppy isn't it?".. 
Guess he just doesn't understand that sloppy is cool. Actually best not let him in on that secret!

  14. I think you look so lovely, you actually really suit your hair up! I also have 'i'mtooscaredtowearmyhairup syndrome', but that's because I am insecure about my ears, I don't think I'd ever be as brave as this!

  15. I love your hair like that! I tried the hair bow thing in my hair the other day - saw the same tutorial on someone's youtube. Very easy to do! Although mine looked a bit messy.
    Love your outfit, looks so comfy and cosy. xx

  29. How I wish I could master the top knot/messy bun. Either my hair isn't yet long enough or I'm just not skilled in the hair area. It should be easy, it HAS to look sloppy.

  34. Love your hair up, it really suits you! I barely ever wear mine tied up as I feel I resemble an egg, but I'm slowly getting over my fear as buns and other 'up dos' are perfect for lazy people like me.
    Really love the outfit too, makes me so excited for Autumn! xx

  35. you really suit your hair up! i hate wearing mine up too though so i know exactly how you feel! definitely going to give that bow tutorial a try though, i had no idea it was so easy.. or at least looked so easy! ;) i think this is probably one of my favourite outfits from you too, the two colours look so good together!

  39. Your hair looks lovely like that! I'm always scared my face looks funny when I have my hair up, so I think I have the syndrome too haha. My other half says he likes it best when my hair is up - strange, strange man.

    Love how you've styled the dress! xo
