First outfit post, hiding in the dark









So I caved into blogger peer pressure and, along with my talented friend Will Epps and his very good camera, took some photos of what I've been wearing recently. Alas, the only time we were both free was late at night so they're quite strangely lit. The last one was lit by a kind, if confused, Sainsbury's lorry driver.

But anyway, onto the clothes, I don't really know how to set this out as I am an outfit post newbie...
The first dress is a rather new one, by Motel from Ark (It's called Naomi if you're interested!), that I got just because of the back but when it arrived I realised it had pockets, I love a dress with pockets! I shall be wearing this galavanting around Thailand getting some very strange tan line.

The second outfit is my attempt to embrace the longer length trend, the skirt is from the New Look Kids section and was a hefty £2 on sale so obviously I had to get it... The Topshop leather jacket is something I wear practically every day, it's old and a bit ripped but I love it.

The third outfit is my Laura Mackness present from the lovely people at Weekday, which I teamed with an old denim shirt and not much else...

The last one, lit by headlights, is something I'd wear on a day to day basis, I'm seldom seen without a pair of cut off denim shorts at the moment. I cut these ones down from a pair of 50p Gap jeans I got at a Charity Shop. The velvet bra top was also from a Charity Shop, they are my shops of choice after all! The cardigan, from Full Circle, is a bit awesome, it has so much excess fabric you can turn it into a dress or make it have a hood.

My shoes are from Office and I love them oh so much...

So that was my very first outfit post, I hope you liked it, shall I power through and do more?
I am quite smitten with the photography, Will is a bit of a genius, check out his website or flickr.

  17. Wow, I'm glad you waited to do this outfit post, as it's a really fantastic one. It seems you have waited until you can get it perfect.
    The photos are absolutely beautiful. Your friend is extremely talented! Your outfits are gorgeous as well. I have been eyeing up those shoes in Office too - I think you may have persuaded me to go for it! It's that heel that does it for me.

  26. Night photos are a bit of a pain to take and these turned out so good, great photographer! I've got a list of things that are awesome about this post:
    1. Your haircut! Very flattering on you and you completely pull it off.
    2. The first dress is gorgeous, LOVE the back!
    3. Perfect shoes, great shape, and clearly versatile since they pair well with all of your outfits, I wish that I could get some for myself and also wear them with everything!
    4. You look so comfortable and confident in front of the camera, how do you do it??
