Dress: River Island
Biker Jacket: TK Maxx
Hi-Top Sneakers: Matalan*
Earrings: My sister!

Today I decided to give the 'Heidi braid' or 'crown braid' a go, as my hair has grown a fair amount since the last time I had it snipped off and I always see this style on other people and get really jealous of how cool they look! In fact this time around my inspiration came from the lovely Ashleigh who rocked this braided look in one of her recent outfit posts. I think I did a pretty good job actually, considering the fact that usually the most I do to my hair of a morning is brush it!

This River Island dress was part of my Christmas present from my sister and I love it, the material and the stripe in the mesh kind of gives it a bit of a sports luxe feel which is why I paired it with my studded 'sneakers' (so American!) and of course my trusty biker jacket had to be thrown over the top so I didn't die of pneumonia. I think this is one of my favourite outfit posts I've done for a while actually, and bonus points for it being a super comfy, casual look too!


  1. Love it! Such a cute look, and I love your hair xx

  2. I absolutely love this outfit! Your hair really finishes the look!
