It had no Doors or Windows.. 

Has anyone else heard that children’s story? I certainly hope so, or else this may have sounded slightly peculiar! If you don’t know – the little red house is actually an apple! It was one of my favourite stories as a child, and this dress has had me thinking of it all day long. I suppose that’s what happens when there is always an apple in sight! (Isn’t it bizarre what can set off nostalgia?) I thrifted the miniature wicker suitcase when I found the dress. Talk about a lucky day – surprisingly it was Friday the thirteenth!

I had hoped for all sorts of adventures today; but the weather had other ideas. Autumn now fully has us in it’s grasp. I do love the colourful leaves, but I could definitely pass on the rain! Instead of woodland wanders, we instead went for a quick jaunt down the road. It broke our cabin fever so perfectly – though I was incredibly grateful to arrive home and warm up! I wore white ASOS tights and jumped over puddles in t-bar flats by bait footwear. If you look hard enough you may even be able to see the rain falling in the photographs – it was certainly a day of April showers!
