Hey guys! Say hello to my new hair! Dyed it a few days ago and then I had a trim the day after so my hair feels FRESH and FUNKY! Plus the home dye kit and my haircut only cost me £16 altogether! I'm so happy with the colour but it doesn't look as red as this is person! I think the camera and the lighting really boots the vibrancy of the red, but I'm not complaining! My hair was getting dull and I always go darker for autumn/winter anyways!
So I bought this Newlook aztec cape last week with the fur stole, because I imagined the two going together well. The colours on the cape are lovely and autumnal! It's one size only, so there is no need to stress about picking a size if you was going to order it online. In this outfit, I wanted to belt it up. I do love the combo together and it transforms the cape to be nice and fitted! Is this practical though? My arms were slightly restricted! But if you was going for lunch out OR going for coffee somewhere, then this outfit would be lovely and perfect for this season! Personally for shopping though, I would have to wear the cape, minus the belt.  I wouldn't be able to reach out to grab any last chance to buy items! 
The Topshop fake leather culottes are a must have! They are also back in stock because for a while they had sold out (I think everyone bought them for LFW) I'm wearing the size 10, but I do need to pin them at the back , so its worth going down a size! They are one of my favourite autumn trousers and they really complete do this look different, compared to wearing your standard jeans with a cape! 
One thing I also tried for the first time was wearing my River Island knee high boots, with the culottes. I loved it! I wasn't sure to begin with, but I've worn these culottes a fair few times with ankle boots, so it was nice to wear them differently. I'm sure you will see the culottes and the knee high boots together again! 
This year I'm loving all these turtle neck/roll neck tops so I had to get my hands on the Asos white one. It was a bargain and a jersey essential. I love this being cropped, because it looks nice with anything high waisted, but I'm also on a mission to find a full length one. 
Hope you like this look and my new hair do ^^, and if you don't..well.. at least its not you wearing it because I love this look and my hair! :D
