Autumn Pinafore

It has been a very busy, weird week for me. I broke up with my boyfriend on Friday, which was a bit of a sad event, especially after a year of going out. But I suppose if things aren't working, then things aren't working and so maybe it was the best thing to do. Aside from that, I've been off around the country looking at universities and trying to make up my mind where to go... its such an impossibly difficult decision :(.

Anyway, on Sunday I went to another car-boot (trying to get as many in as possible before its the end of 'car-boot season'). And I found this beaut dangling on the end of a clothes rail - a lovely tweed pinafore. It kindof reminds me of autumn, but I don't know why! I was shopping with my friend who jumped in when I was paying and bought it for me for my birthday :D.

It needed a bit of shortening, but here is the finished result:

It's my 18th birthday tomorrow! I'm kindof excited, but at the same time I don't want to turn 18 - it's like the end of childhood!

That dress is so cute! I went to a car boot sale on sunday, only to be disappointed by the lack of clothes, there was seriously nothing! Happy birthday for tomorrow :)

Its perfect and the tones are perfect for autumn. I just bought a tweed skirt at a boot sale too, with a view of making it into a pinafore for my Hallowe'en costume but it isn't nearly as nice a colour.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow x

Penny said...

I just wanted you to know that I seldom comment on blogs even if I love them. But I found yours yesterday while I was browsing on google for DIY skirts... then I read your blog, and it's actually one of my favourites :)
Well, that's it :)
You have French readers ;)

I feel your ,18th birthday, pain. I just turned 18 too. Hope you have a good day though. One good thing about turning 18 - people remember your birthday and give you nice gifts - shallow, but true. ;) X

Kitty said...

I hope you feel better about your break up soon, and don't let it affect your Birthday! Hope you have a brilliant day!! Enjoy it :)

Nice dress too

Seda said...

Aww sorry about your bf! That always sucks! But happy birthday though!
You have a real cute blog.
And believe me, I'm 20, and I am not a 'grown up'yet. I thought turning 18 was the end of my childhood, haha. I'll grow older, but I'll never grow up!!!

Little Bo Peeep said...

Awww i'm sorry about your relationship with your boyfriend *hugs*. I agree with your statement saying if things doesn't work out, so mature :D I guess these things happens and don't worry there are a lot of guys out there and your gorgeous!

Ohhh finding where to apply is such a bummer, i didn't like it but i finally found the right one. What are you planning to do? :)

Wow what a lovely outfit, it reminds me of caramel fudge <3

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you had a great one. I didn't like turning 18 this year, i felt so old but i still act like a 12 year old. Hhaha

Kay said...

I'm sad to hear about you and your boyfriend - my boyfriend and I broke up after two years (but got back together a few months later) and it will be horrible at first but once you decide to move on it gets so much better, you made the right decision.
Anyway, I love the material of this dress!

Rachel said...

So sorry that you had such a difficult week, hope your birthday makes up for it at least a bit:)
you look gorgeous in this, as always
