SLIDER

the little denim dress










These snaps were from last week when me and Zoe had the pleasure of attending Afternoon Tea at Cafe Royal. Now being me I've actually lost all my photos that I took while I was there... #bloggerfail. But you can see it all in it's delicious goodness in the vlog from that day.

I never thought I'd type this but Im kinda going off monochrome! YES THATS RIGHT ME, MONOCHROME MELROSE is done-diddly-one- with black and white. Well maybe. A little bit. I seem to be drawn to blue and navy at the moment instead of my usual black. I picked this dress from my latest Topshop A/W Haul and the coat was something I'd purchased earlier in the month but has barely left my shoulders since. It's lightweight enough for autumnal breezes and thick enough to not leave me shivering. Plus it goes with so many things. The pattern is just darling.

Denim isnt one of my favourite things in the world, I was a jeans dodger for years in the early days of this blog. None the less this petrol blue number has slipped perfectly into my wardrobe without feeling out of place.

& Yup, still not given in to tights weather!
