SHAKE IT OFF

 We're coming to the end of my backlog of photos shot over Christmas, and I'm already in mourning for the interesting and ever so slightly 'urban' backdrops that have been appearing on my blog over the last couple of weeks. Definitely going to turn into that person who stands in the middle of the street with a tripod and remote shutter, and I will not be ashamed. We suffer for our art.

This outfit is literally all about this amazing Sparkle and Fade sweater. I picked it up on a whim in the Urban Outfitters sale just after Boxing Day (the small just happened to fall into my hands and it was love at first sight I swear) and I had to get it. I mean hello, it looks like neoprene, and features mesh and all sorts of interesting textures. I mean if I was a sweater, I would look like that. Thankfully however, I'm not a sweater which leaves me free to wear and enjoy it. Forever looking for things to style this skort with, I threw it on to go into town that day along with my River Island boots. Although I love the whole ensemble I'm still feeling unsure about the skort two years on, I think maybe it's time it made an appearance on Depop. Maybe.

  2. Your boots are amazing! I nearly picked up a very similar pair in the River Island sale last week (they may even be the same ones I was looking at) but the last pair sold out in my size because I left it too late to order them :( I was so gutted haha.
    I love the sleeves on your sweater too :)

    1. Thank you! Ahhh no way, that's so disappointing! I was really pleased with these as I managed to snag them in the sale so they probably are the same pair - have you tried online for them? xo

  5. Definitely an awesome sweater -- it kind of reminds me of the Alexander Wang one for H&M. Stunner.

I'm just all like um excuse me professional beauty blogger here. . .haters back off! Heh heh I kid I kid! But, you darling are absolutely beautiful! I came here from Thumbelina's post and had read your comment, but your content is amazing! You take stunning photos and you have an endearing writing style so I hope you realize that! Maybe what you think is missing is that you're not writing something dear to your heart or maybe you're waiting for that next big idea :) Don't worry it will come to you! Keep on blogging...you got 'dis~

    1. Honestly this is one of the nicest comments I've ever had on here, thank you so much! I think you may be right with regards to not writing what is dearest to my heart, I think until I find it however I'm going to continue writing as I am as I do really enjoy it and hopefully inspiration will eventually strike. <3
