what i'm wearing:
h&m breton striped top (similar here)
so i experienced a little bit of a revelation the last time i shot; the 50mm lens i've had sitting in my house hardly touched since i bought it in january (i kept it for beauty posts) is in fact awesome for outfit photos! don't get me wrong myself and the lovely amy who shoots with are still learning but for our first attempt i absolutely love how they have turned out in comparison to my 18-55mm. i know that to some people i'll be talking a load of 'mumbo-jumbo' so apologies i'll move onto the good stuff... bagging a pair of denim dungarees for £15 in the river island sale! this was perfect timing as i knew i wanted to get some but thought i was going to have to splurge as most were retailing at close to £50, which i knew was well out of my price range. they did only have a size 8 available which i knew was risky as i'm usually a 10 on the bottom but thankfully when i collected them they are pretty generous. for this post i rolled up the bottoms but i think i'm going to cut and sandpaper to make them into the short dungarees i originally wanted. what do you guys think? also, i'm not going to lie to you all i have a bit of an obsession with stripes at the moment. expect more stripe induced outfits soon. hope you like! let me know.
