Hello Lovelies! I’m feeling very 60s inspired in this little get up. Although I also have a bit of a Victoriana look going on- all black velvet and high necklines. So who knows where were at! The only issue I have with this outfit is footwear. I just couldn’t make a decision on what looks best… I tried it with brogues, I tried it with ankle boots. Now I’m thinking that perhaps over the knee boots may have been the way forward?

Velvet seems to be everywhere this season- in all sorts of unexpected colours. I’ve played it safe by going for a classic black number but I have got to admit I kind of have a soft spot for some ugly green and yellow pieces I’ve seen. I’m also still seriously repping the layering trend AGAIN in this weeks post. This blouse has been a favourite of mine all summer. I only really bought it in the first place as it went down to about £5 at work.

Recently I’ve been having such a nightmare with my hair, I just keep scraping it back as I’m so unhappy with it. I completely regret cutting my long locks and it just makes me want to sob! I’m considering getting a fringe to make it a bit more edgy but am trying to avoid the hairdresser so that I can grow it out. It’s such a catch 22…

Thoughts ect?

Love Eleanor x

  2. These photos are stunning – they actually look like they belong in a magazine, that background is just <3.

    I love the outfit too, the blouse and the dress look like they were made for eachother. Oh and I think over the knee boots would finish the outfit off perfectly x
