Eeeelaaar! Hope you’re all well. I’m trying keep up with doing at least 2 blog posts a week from now on as I’ve got a lot of free time at the minute and like I had mentioned in a previous post, my blog is something I really want to focus on whilst I take a year out from uni. If I’m honest, I started my blog halfheartedly but it’s become something much more meaningful to me and I love having this space to write and share my outfits with you. One of my favourite parts of blogging is collaborating with other photographers. I love the whole concept of finding new locations, meeting new people and trying new things out, shooting on film for example!
A few weeks back I met up with Paul to do some shots on film and I’m really happy with how they turned out (you can see Paul’s work here). What I like about film is that a lot of time and effort goes into the pictures, where as on digital you can take as many shots until you get the right one. Also not being able to see the images until they are developed makes the experience a lot more exciting. I love the vintage feel film gives and I’m a sucker when it comes to vintage.
Ok, onto the outfit! I decided to go for a simple ootd with a pinch of festivity. I’m not one for head to toe sequins when it comes to this time of the year, unless it’s a New Years party of course! So, I picked one festive item from my wardrobe and decided to dress around it. The pleated midi skirts are literally everywhere this AW16 and they are such an easy piece to style. They come in a different range of colours but I have to say the metallic ones are a favourite. This gold one is from Primark at only £12! You could dress this up for parties with a velvet crop top, mules and glitter socks because if you’re going to wear socks this time of the year they gotta be glitter ones fo sure! I paired the skirt with a mustard knit which I thought matched really well together and gives the outfit a relaxed feel. To finish the look I wore my patent boots and good ol’ leopard coat because you can’t go wrong with a bit of leopard.
See you on the next one,
