time to shine

04/01/2014


what i'm wearing:
H&M fine-knit jumper
H&M collared dress (sale £7)
mybag gina stewart cox bracelet*
topshop leather shoulder bag (similar here)
H&M leather heeled boots
topshop earrings

just want to say a huge thank you for all the lovely comments and feedback on my first outfit of the new year. it might not look it, as i don't have someone to take my photos for me in a nice scenic area but i do work really hard in every post i do. not to say those bloggers don't work hard themselves, i know they do! just i know sometimes my posts can look poor in comparison yet i'm sure i put just as much as effort in. i was tempted to step back indoor for my outfit posts as i wasn't sure if it was working for my blog, but after looking back i think i'm happy with my situation at the moment. i'm always keen to improve and make my blog the best i can so if you have any recommendations on what you want to see, or any tips and advice i'd be greatly appreciative. one of my goals for this year is to make the step in youtube videos. when i come back from my holiday i'm going to push myself to do it as i have such a good camera it would be a shame to waste it! this year it's my time to shine. hope you like this outfit :)

  6. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for us this year, your blog just keeps getting better and better. I always love how you're outfit photos look, even when you were doing them indoors. It can be soo hard taking your own photos, I struggle every time I do them, but your photos show everyone that you don't need a "photographer boyfriend" to make them look great!

  16. This is a lovely outfit, and I know what you mean it's just your luck on whether you have a nice 'scenic location' nearby where you can take outfit photos! I certainly don't! :) x
