Hello my lovelies,
Long time no speak after blogging so much beforehand! It's awful to say but don't you think that sometimes life just sort of...gets in the way? I don't want to wish my life away but recently it seems a bit of a drag, a bit of a routine. Maybe it's the horrible weather we've been having, I don't know, but now the sun is shinning on these still very chilly days, the best kind transitioning from Winter to Spring, so I have no excuse but to wear a smile!
I thought I would try and shoot my outfit somewhere different today as Jack has just started a new job so all the free time he had before has gone (amazing for him, not so good for my new 'on location' ootd's!). The only place in my house which has some amount of good lighting is mine and Jack's bedroom and there's not a great deal of room to photograph standing up, so I improvised. What do you think? I felt a bit weird posing on my bed trying to get the right angle but I think I just about managed it in the end. Let me know what you think, I'd really like some feedback :)
I bought this gingham skirt from New Look a few days ago and wanted to style it for work today. I went for a pretty simple outfit to not override the gingham print. I think my cream quilted jumper from Zara works really well with this skirt as there's different textures and prints involved that seem to compliment each other. I accessorised few by wearing only my everyday jewellery; my watch that my Mum got me and my bracelet that Jack got me. To finish this look I went for my trusty leather sandals, tights and my pink coat to add a bit of colour (not photographed as I was indoors!)
I also shoved my hair up as it needs washing tonight but I got quite a few compliments on how I looked today so I was happy :)
I think when I style this skirt on other occasions I will have to keep it simple. Gingham is a print which can be quite tricky to work with but if you get it right it makes for an awesome eye-catching outfit. And of course, gingham is so in this season ;)
Before I forget and end this post, I also filmed today's outfit and put together a little 'ootd' video as I haven't done one in a very long time. I hope you enjoy it!
Speak soon lovelies,
