Pinafore Pretty.

PLEATED PINAFORE DRESS FROM KEE BOUTIQUE | CHIFFON BLOUSE FROM NEW LOOK (OLD)
HEADBAND FROM CROWN & GLORY* | NECKLACE FROM ZARA TAYLOR* | BOOTS FROM TOPSHOP

If you live in the UK, you're no doubt aware of the horrific weather conditions at the moment. Because of flooded rail tracks, I am currently stranded in Cornwall, which is hardly the worst thing in the world, but it meant that I was unable to attend the Dahlia event this afternoon. They're one of my favourite brands so I'm absolutely devastated. I was so looking forward to meeting up with some fellow bloggers and eying up pretty dresses. C'est la vie...

On the bright side, I've spent today baking gingerbread men. They're a new one for me, so I was over the moon when the first batch turned out perfect. We've made holes in their heads (although I felt a bit cruel doing so!) so that we can thread them along a some festive ribbon to make a garland for the kitchen. I'll definitely be sharing photos - it's one of the better Christmas DIYs I've attempted!

Although I couldn't attend the event today, I still wore the outfit I'd planned on wearing. The gorgeous pinafore is from Kee Boutique, a brand I really should buy from more often! The print is so on-trend and it looks adorable paired with a cream blouse. I just wore it with this old New Look number I picked up for about £5 in the January sales! I kept accessories simple but sweet with a Crown and Glory headband and my Zara Taylor 'A Nice Cup of Rosy Lea' necklace.

  12. This dress is stunning, I'd never heard of Kee Boutique but it looks really exciting.
    I also love your Crown & Glory headwear - they make you look almost ethereal (meant in the least creepy way possible!)

  19. P.S. Btw, this is Alejandra, from Musings in Red. I've split my old blog into two: an inspirational blog, "Parasol Dreams", and a book review blog that is just in the makings now! :)

    And the reason I'm boring you with all this information is that I'm just letting all the blogs I follow know about my new blog name so that they don't think I've abandoned them. Or that I died. Or some other tragical thing like that. :)
