What Mama Wore


What Mama Wore:
Dress: Fever London
Cardigan: Primark (mens section)
Boots: c/o Hunter
Badge: Jess Quinn

When I asked Tom how I looked he said 'like a grown up child'. I said 'Thanks! That's just the look I was going for'.

I spent last weekend dying my hair, although I liked the red, my roots were showing through far too much and two tone brown and red just didn't work for me. Instead I got a box dye closest to my natural shade and then, quite out of my comfort zone I tried an ombre kit. I was overly cautious with it, not wanted to be too dramatic in the tone difference and also a little terrified of bleaching my hair (eep!). I think it worked well, its not too different to my natural hair colour but I like how it doesn't look so much of a block colour as so often happens when you home dye. I'm still not 100% sure of the length, I'm very predictable in that I grow grow grow it..then chop it all off, I wish I just knew what length was the best and kept it that way. 

I've wanted a pair of Hunter wellies for a really long time so were thrilled when they asked if I would like a pair. They really are lovely and despite the sun last week we are now experiencing snow (snow!) so its perfect timing really. I did wonder about being more adventurous and picking one of their brighter colours (of which there are many) but I thought black was a classic that would go with most things so I would get more wear out of them and maybe, maybe, a festival visit this year. 
Wilf also has some cute little Hunters arriving, I can't wait to share those pictures with you, toddlers in wellingtons are simply the cutest. Plus then we can sing ''Wilfryd's wish wellingtons!".

The Fever dress I am wearing if from their 2008 collection but is one of my most worn dresses (although not lately due to needing breastfeeding friendly dresses). It's honestly the comfiest thing I own,  but can be made more tailored with the addition of a vintage style belt. 

And that my friends is what I wore on Saturday xo

God I would LOVE to design a dress for you one day.

I notice you like playing with details and you wear them so well - as for me? Unfortunately not so much! ;)

But with your 'Mama Wore' posts I can wear these things through you!

Haha, his description cracks me up... But I can see the waifish street urchin thing, kinda. It's Les Miserables chic? :D Ooh, I like that!

Anyway, I think your hair turned out beautifully, and I'm insanely jealous of those boots. Enjoy them!

Your hair looks lovely! I can't believe it's come out so well from a home kit. I used to dye my hair all time, then I just gave into the ginger one day...very boring x
