Every few months I head off to see Bob my lovely hairdresser for a much needed cut & colour.
Anyone new to my blog may not know that Im not a natural red head Im a natural blonde, about 7 years ago I went red and Ive never looked back. Getting my hair re-coloured is one of those things I just love getting done. Its like a mini make over, you leave feeling refreshed and more confident. With the whole clocks going back getting blog photos any day bar the weekend is tricky, Dave & I lucked out at getting this photos just before the sunset...

Leather Bomber: Oasis, Dress: Asos, Jumper: H&M, Boots c/o Debenhams, Necklace c/o Argento, Glasses c/o Proopticals.

I fell in love with dress on the Asos site a few months back. With a peter pan collar, simple fitted waist & amazing old upholstery style print I knew it had to be mine. I layered it under a fine knit on this occasion because it was too cold for anything else. I think teamed with a heavy cardigan or cropped jumpers Ill get a lot of wear out of it this autumn.

    Yeah I can't imagine you blone either, Vicki, you look lovely

  7. Really? I mean, I am a longtime reader of your blog but didn't know you are a natural blonde. I knew you dyed your hair but I simply thought you looked for a more vibrant colour every time. Surprise!
    You are right regarding the light, it's pretty and soft. Really nice autumn pictures :)

  10. Ah, Vicki, you are so gorgeous! I love the combination of that dress & sweater - perfect for this time of year!
    I am in dire need of a visit to my hairstylist. In fact, I have been thinking about getting a new cut really similar to yours - I love the your clean cut ends (and don't get me started about your fabulous colour!)
    Have a beautiful day, friend!

  11. I love the way the light plays with your hair, creates shadows.. There's something special about the setting sun. :)

    Also very cute look as always x

  13. Your hair looks like such a lovely natural redhead- impressed at Bob's skills :)

  15. Your hair are so perfect ♥ wow and the sun in the background! magic ♥

  16. oooh cannot imagine you as a blondie like me!!! You seem to suit red so so very much. You look beautiful as always, such pretty lighting in these photos too. That very special Golden hour creeping in i think ;) xxxx

  17. I know the exact feeling after you get your hair colored. I've kept my hair red for 8 or 9 years now (and I'm naturally dirty blonde), so I'm right there with you! It's wonderful to feel all fresh and vibrant again! Red fades so much I almost forget how vibrant and fun it could look by the time I get it done again.
    Also you look so cute with that cozy sweater layered over that dress. I love how the collar of the dress peeks out of the top.
