What I wore: Autumn Leaves

It's finally autumn! The leaves are starting to change to yellow, red and purple, the temperature is staying around 20 degrees during the day and I can finally wear tights comfortably! It seemed like Autumn never wanted to come.
Dress: Red White and Cute Dress from Modcloth, Tights: Factorie (last year), Boots: Kmart (last year)
Bracelets: Cotton On Earrings: Cotton On, Necklace: Lovisa
I love this dress! It's nice and thick, and the colours are perfect for Autumn. It's a kind of anytime dress though, I still managed to get a lot of wear out of it during summer, even with the thick fabric. I bought these tights, along with a green pair, from Factorie last year for about $5 each and I think they're really great. I love wearing coloured tights, and I ended up going back to get a second backup pair of each. I've also taken these boots out again, even though I ditched them towards the end of last winter because they started falling apart. They're not all that comfortable because they're a size too big (Kmart doesn't make shoes in the womans section to fit my tiny feet. I'm yet to venture to the kids section there, but I did pick up some pretty sparkly flats from the kids section at Big W and also from Cotton On Kids).

I've been shopping my stash a little bit, and decided to pull out the Australis Fresh and Flawless foundation. I'm still not the biggest fan of this, but I'll give it another go when I get my Real Techniques brushes before I finally decide to chuck it. I've also been loving this Covergirl blush, but I'll leave that for another post.

George always follows me around when I do outfit posts.


  1. Love that dress! I love modcloth but still haven't bought anything from that site - i always just go on there and browse browse browse :P

    1. Thanks! I was a little obsessed with Modcloth a while ago, and now half my wardrobe consists of dresses I bought from there. It's definitely my favourite place to shop online.

  2. That is a gorgeous dress! I really like your eye makeup too :)

    1. Thanks! I've been loving a smokey eye lately!

  3. You're so stunning! Love the eye look XXX

  4. Ahh I love your dress! I wish I was brave enough to wear red tights - I always stick to plain old black haha.

    1. Thanks! Coloured tights are my favourite. You could always try wearing darker coloured tights to get used to wearing something other than black.
