SUN AND MOON

sun moon and stars "Tiara" dress - Motel Rocks
hat - Topshop
chunky boots - H&M
gemstone necklace - Etsy
silver satchel - Michael Kors

Hey loves! So first and foremost I'd like to apologise for the state of my hair in the above pictures. My hair has had a bit of a growth spurt lately which is great but also not great as it means my undercut is currently at a stinkin' awful length. I've been trying to grow it out since December and it is honestly hell to maintain, the rumours are true guys. I'm praying to the hair gods that it hurries up and grows to a normal length and just behaves itself because ohmygoshitistheworstthingever. I'm also writing this while binge watching Bob's Burgers which is my new favourite tv show and also criminally underrated. Tina Belcher is queen, no contest.

So I wore this outfit out recently and it's one of my favourites in a long time, it feels so good to be wearing my beloved floppy hat with some chunky boots again after a summer of dresses and shiny sandals. The print of the dress may look familar to some of you who read a lot of blogs, as Motel's "sun moon and stars" pattern has been a huge hit especially in the blogosphere. I'd been lusting after a dress from the collection after getting the Antonia skater skirt for Christmas as it instantly became a winter wardrobe staple. This dress, the "tiara" (a name I love as a self proclaimed princess), is just as if not more versatile. It's baggy but not unflatteringly so and the length is short enough so not to look frumpy, as I find can be the issue with smock-type dress. I was super pleased with the fit as being small of build oversized dresses can look ridiculous and swamp me, but this one fits like a dream. I decided to go with a monochromatic colour scheme with the aforementioned hat and boots, which dressed the outfit up while still keeping the relaxed and grungy look that the dress naturally has.

  28. I am so jealous you have this dress! I really want it, and the sunflower version. Such a pretty fit!

    I know what you mean about growing your hair out, I had a bob cut a few years ago and then bleached my hair until it fell apart so had to spend a long time growing it! I actually did a post on growing it out when I first started my blog (here) but my best advice would be get coconut oil if you've not already, and everytime you shower massage it in your whole hair for half an hour before washing it out, or leave it overnight if you can. It helps to reverse any damage so you don't need it cutting as often :)

  71. wow girl, your style is fantastic! I think I will be visiting this blog more often! ;)
    and with my hair, I've got the same (or similar) problem - they are shorter on one side and they don't want to grow to the lenght of the other part, they are curly while the longer part is straight! Sounds like a disaster. I'm even thinking about cutting them all to the same lenght...
