what i'm wearing:
aldo crossbody bag via zalando
zara strappy sandals (similar here)
topshop pendant necklace (sale)
primark zodiac 'gemini' necklace
polaroid cat-eye sunglasses*

so today's post isn't the cleanest background i've ever encountered but hey let's just say i'm going for 'dirty urban' vibe for it haha. yesterday me and rachael were lucky enough to be invited down to our local revolution to try out the new summer menu, so on our way we find a quiet area to take some photos. it's a shame that newcastle doesn't have tonnes of really nice places to shoot. travelling to other cities may have to become an option as i'm really enjoying doing nice backgrounds to my photos at the moment, and i want to keep it up. i can't get enough of my new missguided trench coat, it's just the most perfect thing i've ever laid my eyes upon. it's super lightweight and it just means if it's super hot (like it was yesterday) you won't be regretting leaving the house with a coat because your arms have plenty breathing space! not the best photos from me i'm not going to lie as i had a bit of a carb face and was trying to hide it best i could; over-indulged a little too much the past few days, but i really love this outfit and i hope you do too. hope you have a lovely weekend and i'll speak to you again on sunday!
