OOTD - 29.09.13

Bowler hat - h&m (buy here)
Tartan Dress - boohoo (buy here)
Fluro bag - eBay (buy here)
Chelsea shoes - topshop
I really love the colour palette of this outfit, its quite a wintery outfit in a way but I think its made warmer with this fluro yellow satchel, (blog post here),  which offers a really cool contrast and pop of colour to an other wise fairly classic outfit. You tend to see tartan coming back in to fashion, for winter, every year, but I have a feeling its going to be a lot more mainstream this A/W, this dress was part of my September wish list (blog post here) and I couldn't resist treating myself and actually getting it. I'm a big fan of green/navy based tartan as apposed to the classic red based tartan, which I also love but I think can sometimes be a little overpowering. To tie in with the deep navy/black in the dress I added a black bowler hat, black tights and black Chelsea shoes, I have had these shoes for a few years now and have recently rediscovered my love for them as we come into the cooler months. If I can I like to be a little different with what I wear hence going for Chelsea shoes as apposed to the common Chelsea boots, which although lovely I feel like everyone has.
