Raspberry pink...


I have absolutely no idea what my hand is doing here!

Jumper- Topshop
Shorts- Topshop
Shoes- New Look
Necklace- H&M
I got a tripod stand and found me a nice wall! Isn't my life just the definition of excitement? Well for the first time my head and feet are actually in the photos and I don't know if this is entirely a good thing. I feel like two explanations are due, one regarding my head and the other my feet.
1) I am the least photogenic person ever so do excuse any weird and wonderful faces being pulled in the photos and my hair is permanently a mess but was bad today in particular. You see I wasn't planning on leaving the house and so I thought I would give my hair a break from heat and it turns out sleeping on it wet isn't the best idea in the world. I also rather stupidly let my fringe grow out and so now I just have this limp bit of hair hanging in front of my face.
2) I am not a shoe person. I buy shoes when I need them and tend to buy shoes that match everything so the same pairs of shoes are going to keep popping up in outfit posts.

Do you think these photos are better or worse than the old ones? And any tips on how to take better photos would be much appreciated!

  1. Lovely outfit I adore the shorts! These photographs are great and you look gorgeous in them! In regards to tips, just be natural and make them personal...they certainly don't need to look like Vogue editorials, I enjoy photographs that are a little more quirky and like I said before natural :) I like the shots before and now, I think I prefer the brick wall background more though :)

  2. This outfit is so amazing! You look so pretty! I love your necklace! I always feel really awkward in outfit posts too - I think the best thing is just to try and be natural, a natural smile is best!

  11. yay for you getting your head in, haha! i know what you mean about shoes- i have 4 pairs that are my favorite and don't care enough to buy more. but sometimes they really ruin or make an outfit awesome, so that sucks. buttt i love your outfit, so it all turned out well :)

  22. I love your cute tribal shorts...looks great with a red top and fabulous necklace. So simple yet chic. I think you did a nice job with the photography...I use tripod too and I know how difficult it can be especially when it can't talk....or tell u when the hair is not in place. Have fun!
