Outfit August - Looking to autumn in tapestry print

LOOKING-TO-AUTUMN-TAPESTRY-PRINT // WWW.XLOVELEAHX.CO.UK
Hello loves! My cousin gave me this dress when she stayed with me recently. I love tapestry print everything, even though some might say it's a bit 'old lady's curtains'. 😝😝😝 I always associate tapestry print with autumn, and I think I'm ready for Halloween, Fireworks night, fallen leaves and cups of steaming hot chocolate. The only thing I'd like to hang onto from summer is the long days. How I dread S.A.D. each year!

These photos were taken on the beach at Pevensey, just outside Eastbourne.

I refreshed my henna on this day so my hair looks vibrant. It's always a boost to cover my grey hair, especially as they seem to be multiplying like a plague of late. Maybe one day I'll embrace them, but I love being a redhead.

  1. that dress and jacket look amazing together! You look FAB in a dress…. I should take a leaf from your book and rock a dress more often, but the easy of “jeans and a jumper” rule at the moment. I’m enjoying all your OA posts and can’t wait to see how you finish up the month. (PS: where has this year gone????)

    1. Thanks Christy! This year has zoomed by! Maybe chuck a dress on over some jeans? I think I'm going to give that a bash once it cools off a bit more over here. I need to get my arse in gear and create some more posts. This hasn't been a great month for me for productivity, by any means. xxxx

    1. I hope things get better soon Christie. I love all wintery things too - except the cold and the dark, hahaha! Lots of love back to you.

  3. Hi Leah, OMG you look amazing in that dress! It's perfect and looks fab with the denim jacket too. I need to give myself a shake, I was enjoying wearing dresses for a while there but I've been feeling awful for such a while now and when I feel like that it's just easier to wear leggings and a baggy tshirt. On bad days even the weight of clothes hurts so spending anytime on myself goes out the window. Not for the first time you're an inspiration honey. I need to give myself a wee shake. Maybe I deserve to wear a nice dress now and again, might make me feel a bit better :) Sending huggles always honey xx

    1. Big hugs Rosie. That sounds awful. A week or so ago I had a moment where I was sick of feeling like crap, so I kicked myself in the butt. I forced myself into a shower and hair wash, put make up on and dressed up and I felt SO much better for it. I say put a dress on, even for an hour, then get back into your comfies. Just having a couple of gentle twirls in your dress might cheer you up a bit. xxx
