I'm not usually one for instigating new trends, but when it comes to matching your hair to your bag, it's a fashion statement that I take full credit for. Not that I think it really took off, but hey, it gives some sort of novelty to my outfit. This was my outfit for a super hot day in London (truly a rare occurrence) which gave me the perfect opportunity to debut my new dress, which is absolutely beautiful, with a watercolour effect to it which really stands out against my new hair. My purplish hair was an impulsive move, spurred on by my friend Sean's offer of a bleaching kit and the Directions pots gathering dust in the corner of my room, due to my own nervousness about dying my hair a sort of 'out there' colour. I used a mixture of Dark Tulip and Plum, both frantically applied to my hair after I had the dodgiest of all hair bleaching jobs. I absolutely love having purple hair that goes a little further than my usual tint, and it's nice to finally have that teenage phase I've so clearly lacked.

Dress - Primark

This dress is a surprise Primark buy. The minute I saw it I absolutely fell in love with it, and parted with my money (a relatively expensive £15 in Primark terms) immediately. I love how colourful it is, and the fabric itself feels lovely and light (perhaps a little too light, I had a very undignified Marilyn moment when taking these photos much to my photographer Sean's amusement). I paired it with my Zatchels bag again, as it has inevitably become a bit of a staple for me.
