I have a question for you fashion bloggers who read this.. what do you do with your face? When I take photos like this it’s what I struggle with most.. that and trying to avoid the generic looking down poses and inevitably choosing those as my favourites.. much harder than photographing a lipstick that’s for sure. I often wish I could be my own photographer, much as my husband is great I would be more critical and could direct myself where as he points and clicks and hopes for the best. I love this dress, it’s new to me from Primark (bought it yesterday so it should still be in stores) but I’m not sure whether I should have gone a size down. It’s baggy and I expected it to be but I kind of assumed it was designed that way.. a little smocky if you will but I think it’s more like a skater style in reality and now makes me look larger than I am.. thoughts? I love the idea of smock dresses.. super duper comfy and easy to wear but do they just end up looking like you’re wearing a moo moo because nothing else will fit you? I could never be a fashion blogger.. I never totally embrace these trends until they’re over. My shoes are also from Primark but they were A/W’12 and my necklace is Topshop, I love it and they are constantly redesigning it with different metals and fabrics so if you can’t get this one you’ll definitely find something similar in stock right now. Ella wouldn’t pose for a nice summery photo so this is the best I could get.. an action shot of her fleeing from the puppy on here didi car. While shopping this morning I spied this “new” (is it new, I don’t know – I’d never seen it before) Budweiser, it’s lightly carbonated a little sweeter than usual. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, I thought it would be flat and sugary but it’s really nice, as it suggests it is smoother and so it’s gone before a regular Bud would be flat and warm and you don’t feel as bloated afterwards. Random beer review there and for those wondering I was absolutely not paid by Budweiser.. however if they’d like to send me a crate of this Brew No.66 I wouldn’t say no *wink*
It wasn’t quite as lovely light when I took my original outfit shots this morning but I couldn’t not take advantage of the late afternoon light while we were in the garden.. I thought I would share this earlier photo though, what do you think of the jacket? I love it and hate it.. it’s a bit bulky and boxy – I also wore it in this outfit post – but it’s what I bought for Spring so I may do a styling post soon and wear it different way.. see how you guys feel.. I’m sure some of you will have some great tips so leave me a comment if you do!
I’m sure lots of you will have plans this evening.. lucky things.. but I will be making dinner, putting the children to bed (well.. my husband does that) and watching a movie in preperation for an entirely relaxing bank holiday Monday. Not really, we have lots of gardening to do *sigh* but my hairdresser friend is coming to do my highlights (I’m going blonder) so that’s fun. Have fun and I’ll see you tomorrow!
