I will admit that shooting inside is never top of my list of things that sound like a good idea for my blog. I tried it once a few years ago and while I was mildly happy with the results I quickly returned to my usual outside only location vibe and left it at that. Something about it screamed too ‘FRONT Mag Alt Girl DIY circa 2009’ which is fine because I was totally into all that back then, but now at the age of 25? Not so much.
When you move into a totally Pinterest worthy London apartment however that has decor of dreams and looks pretty damn fabby on camera it’s always worth giving things another shot right?
I’m still not entirely sure that you’re going to be seeing these kind of shots with any kind of regularity on LJLV but I found them super fun to shoot just this once. I wanted to show you guys a more ‘behind the scenes’ type situation – the kind of thing I wear when I get home from work and want to shed the office clothes quicker than you shed your coat on the tube when you realise it’s basically a million degrees and you’re going to slowly cook to death on your commute.
I think for me, when I’m chilling in the house and nobody is going to see me aside from Joe, comfort is the absolute order of the day. I love a soft cotton t-shirt and some comfortable leggings and I couldn’t care less if my flab is hanging out or if my bum looks even bigger than normal because, at the end of the day, I’m relaxing in my home and if I can’t let it all hang out at home then quite frankly, when the hell can I?
This t-shirt is a current favourite of mine that I ordered on an impulse from ASOS. It is so soft guys I can’t even begin to describe it, but best of all (for me) is the slogan. We all know at this point that slogan t-shirts get me going and I honestly think this one was made specifically for me. I can be antisocial AF at times and much prefer chilling at home to a good 80% of social events (no offence if you invite me to anything, I will come and have a great time I just also love my sofa and a good book). I think I’ve had these leggings for about 5 years now and they are still a holy grail of my wardrobe. Somehow, and I’m not sure how, they suck everything in and lift everything up without being uncomfortable so I feel V. V. V. happy with my figure when I wear them.
