New Season, New Do

To celebrate the arrival of Autumn (or Fall ) I decided it was time for a change on the hair front , so off to
the hairdresser I went and this is the result. I must admit to being rather pleased with the result , even though
it is a little shorter than I would normally go. The cut has to last for the next eleven weeks as I will be far to busy travelling to visit a hairdresser.

I have paired the new hair with a recently acquired jacket from Return to Splendour , my favourite local
recycling store. The jacket is from Australian designers Scanlan and Theodore and is actually made in Australia, very rare indeed. I loved the fabric, which is a polished cotton , the style details and the buttons.
Oh how I enjoy the thrill of finding a one off piece that you normally would’t see in this town and paying
a price that is so resonable for such quality.
My Moyuru pants , a black T Shirt and Trippen sandals complete today’s outfit.

    Your hairdresser did a wonderful job, I love the edgy short cut and the natural color! The new jacket has a fantastic collar and beautiful shine, a very good find indeed. I spotted a new consignment shop in town recently, but haven't been there yet. I must visit soon. 🙂 I hope to hear from you before you go traveling, but if I don't, have a wonderful trip, dear Jill!! I am sure you will have so much fun, and I will be looking forward to photographs. Much love.

    Your hair looks fab! I do love the way your outfits are always about the detail. Love the texture combo on this one, from your jacket with a sheen through the matte band of your top peeping underneath, to the many folds of your trousers. Enjoy your travels!
