ADORNAIS.

As a baby my auntie took it upon her hands to shave my head bald, which resulted in half of my childhood photographs of me baring an uncanny resemblance to my younger brother, and my mother being on the receiving end of perplexed looks from strangers as they questioned why she had dressed her son in a frilly dress. Of course, my mother soon grew to forgive my auntie as the overall result was good: thick hair.

After hair fantasies being a central distraction during my recent exams, as soon as my last was over, I jumped at the chance of going techni-colour- by getting mermaid green locks. I was confused to find where the colour had disappeared to in the photographs, but settled with the reality that (having dyed only the underneath layers of my hair) the colour just wasn't that obvious. I plan to re-apply the colour for Glastonbury festival (10 days now!), where i'll be pairing the green with the excessive number of flower garlands which i've bought recently- with the inevitable result of being mistaken for a nature-crazy nomad.

With my excitement for Glastonbury and this summer (and, with not ever being one to pull off the 'colour-blocking' trend), I opted for a light, floral summer look. I am wearing a long-sleeved top by Jaeger, a scallop edge vest top - Vintage, Belt by Topshop and a chiffon skirt from AA. 


And the title in case you were wondering is a branch out from one of my favourite songs by the cure: ADONAIS - as well as the name of my tumblr which can be found here!
