Love + Light
Blogging has made me extra finicky about photography. My mind flickers between "Is the lighting correct?" to "Are my feet in the shot?" and sometimes i feel a little bit sorry for whoever the poor soul it is that ends up helping me out with my photos because i'm forever squealing "NOOOOOOOO, the sun has ruined everything!!!" only to ask them to take another 20 or so in the freezing cold. That's what happened with these photos, my discerning eye tells me that most of the pictures are overexposed or underexposed and for some strange reason, today, i don't mind. In my mind i'm laughing over my poor sister wailing about her fingers being too cold to release the shutter, or focus the lens. I'm thinking of how my feet kept sinking into the mud in this park, and how much i shivered to get these photos, the not so glam side of blogging eh?
This outfit, much like my last, feels like a classic Sade outfit. A skirt that nips in at the waist, a simple black top, red lips, and an undo. It's a true 'me' through and through, and it's cool to see my style solidifying more and more as i get older.
Twentysix.co challenged my general rule, and were kind enough to send me one of their skirts, which was lovingly hand sewn in Nigeria. Very beautiful and autumnal oui? I think it would look beautiful with a crisp white shirt, camel swing coat and a vintage headscarf at some point in the future.. But i digress, since this post is mostly about supporting small businesses, i'll throw in a small plug for my Momma's beautifully curated jewellery store, i thought i'd do a little bit of jewellery modelling for her whilst home for Christmas and i was so proud of all her hard work! Although her jewellery is mainly occasion and wedding wear based, it's truly lovely, so i urge you to check it out if you like that sort of this. Plug over.
I'm glad that i've managed to stick to my promise of two blog posts a week, so far i've succeeded and i'm simultaneously editing some photos from a day out back in December that i'm excited to share with you all! Considering i have a crit at 1pm, i should probably be preparing for that, so with that, i bid thee adieu! Hope you've all been having a great week!
