I really like the 60s vibes of this dress, and I think the cross over front makes it still feel a little modern at the same time, which I like. Houndstooth always used to be a big no-go for me but since I saw this dress I've become obsessed with it - I'm now on the hunt for a nice a-line skirt in the same print, and I have my eye on some houndstooth shoes, too (sounds horrible but I promise they're nice)! I feel like the cross over, skort-esque front, as the dress is otherwise quite short, makes it a little more practical too.
As you may have noticed, sadly the blue hair is no more - I'd never dyed my hair before this, so I thought dip dye was the way to go as if the worst came to the worst I could chop it off! Isy very kindly did it for me and I did hers at the same time - as the dye was only temporary (6-8 washes) it faded very quickly - it was originally very dark blue but soon turned into a pastel green which I weirdly quite liked! Later in the summer I also dyed the ends purple, which eventually faded into a red/ginger tint at the ends of my hair which is still very slightly there. For anyone interested I used this dye from Schwarzkopf which I do recommend, but it works a lot better on lightened hair!

Musically recently I've been rediscovering Lianne La Havas - I fell in love with her after listening to 'Is Your Love Big Enough?' a few years back and her debut album did not disappoint! Her voice is incredibly soulful and all of her harmonies are beautifully crafted. As usual my description is not doing her music justice, so here's a few of my favourite songs by her!
