Cinderella in Autumn..

I picked up this blue number last year in a costume shop sale. I occasionally buy stand out pieces; just because they are so quirky that I can’t bare to leave them behind! Obviously, this is completely what happened with this dress – whoops! The shade of blue, combined with the lace-up detail reminded me of  Zooey Deschanel. It seemed almost like one of her unconventional (but wonderful!) dresses; with exception of the dark hair and fringe to match! Now, you know that I’ve taken my inspiration from cartoons before; well with the vibrant colour, today I was feeling especially Cinderella-esque. It only seemed right that we were alongside the museum, an exceptionally grand English style stone building. We wandered through the parks, doing my favourite Autumn hobby; finding extra crunchy leaves to jump on. It’s the greatest when you find one that’s super juicy!
