Hey :) Being really good at timing my blog photos etc., I happened to take these pictures during one of the recent storms, when the sky was a funny colour and it was dull and wet. You would think that being a qualified photographer I should know all about ideal lighting, but sadly my schedule dictates most of the time and this is another unfortunate example of me having to make the best of a bad situation! My face is pretty much in shadow, but that’s no bad thing really because all the focus is on my favourite dress. I bought this from a now non-existent shop where I live that used to sell one off pieces that I would expect to find at Camden Market. I have had this dress for a few years now, and luckily I can still just about get into it. I’m not mad on floral patterns as a rule but I have always loved this dress, from the shape to the bright colours and general girly feel it has. I’m really enjoying dressing more femininely this summer, usually I put less effort into my outfits in the summer because I love winter clothes so much but I realised that this is silly and I must have been looking a bit of a state! I do however stand by what I said a while ago, which was that I have been pretty unimpressed with this year’s spring/summer offerings!
I have actually become pretty obsessed with my nails lately, and have been buying more polish than usual in all shades. In these photos I am wearing one of my trusty Barry M Gelly polishes in Grapefruit I think. It is almost a neon pink and goes nicely with my fake tan! On my lips I am wearing a Revlon Lip Butter, something else that has easily made its way into my everyday make up bag.
What’s your favourite outfit for the summer? Are there any trends you’ve loved or hated this season? xx
