feeling rusty

02/12/2014


what i'm wearing:
H&M lace skater dress (similar here 1 & 2)
gel nails and art by skullen nail design*
aldo cross-body bag via zalando
NEXT suede thigh high boots
ASOS camel fedora hat (similar here)
H&M peach stone ring (similar here)

oh man i can't even tell you how amazing/nervous it felt editing and putting this post together. with almost six weeks out of the game from shooting it felt really odd to be standing in the middle of street with a camera put in front of me. even more so when yesterday was the first time i've properly put on make up in almost two weeks. living the glamorous lifestyle right here guys; picture PJ's, fluffy slippers and a nice messy up-do. if i'm honest i haven't really been taking care of myself, one week i can eat next to nothing then the next eat everything non-stop. shooting again and actually seeing how i look may sound stupid, but it's made me realise i need to start a good ol' detox to get all the bad stuff out and start looking and feeling better like i used to.

i also realised i haven't mentioned it on here, but i recently decided to leave my job at H&M for personal reasons and on monday i'm actually starting a full-time job. i hate that it means i won't be able to shoot as often i used to but i am going to still try and blog as regularly as i can. even if the first few weeks will be tough as i won't be used to working that much. especially as i've been out of work for so long already. i just hope that despite it not being my "dream" job it can provide enough financially so maybe one day i can try it out being a full-time blogger. anyway, i hope you like my outfit as i was pretty much freezing to death whilst shooting it. and thank you to all of you for sticking with me whilst my blog has been absolutely dismal for content over the last couple of months. love you guys.

  28. I'm so glad you're back -- I was missing seeing your updates in my feed. :)

    I love the way you paired the boots with such a feminine dress. I just got some over the knee boots similar to yours and was looking for some inspiration.
