Outfit Post: Spontaneous Photoshooting

This entire week has been insane, unlike any other week I’ve ever experienced. So much fun, so much time with friends and so much spontaneity, it’s been amazing. Anyway, on Sunday I was organised and took some photos of my outfit before I headed out so that I could bring you another outfit post, however, it soon turned out that it wasn’t necessary!

After a lovely afternoon of cocktails and food, my friends and I were wandering back to Waterloo to head home, slightly tipsy and enjoying the glorious sun. As we headed home, we got stopped by a group of photographers wanting to take our pictures. Being polite we agreed and me, being slightly tipsy said I’d hang around for the rest of the evening since I had nothing better to do. Ended up modelling with the group for the rest of the evening and got some great images from the shoot.

So, the bright orange hair dye I had in my hair has faded significantly now, so I’m back to a strawberry blonde colour. This photo was taken on Southbank, posing in front of an old fashioned ice cream truck. The owner gave me a free ice cream after the shoot. Win! The sunglasses are vintage, from Tramp Vintage in Brighton. Make up wise I’m wearing Oriflame Neo Chic Lipstick in Bright Pink with Illamasqua blusher in Lover.

My dress is a gingham shirt dress from H by Henry Holland from Debenhams. It’s short, but it’s very pretty. I added a brown belt instead of the white one it came with to match my boots. It’s got pretty white lace flowers around the shoulders and a nice full skirt. I’m wearing a flower wreath that I got from New Look last year for super cheap and just haven’t gotten around to wearing, I love them, just such a simple way to brighten an outfit.

Ok, so this dude that I’m posing with on the bridge is Mikey, a totally awesome American who runs a photography blog called Lighten Up and Shoot, he’s also the organiser of the lighting workshop that I ended up modelling for. So much fun, in fact everyone was awesome. In this shot you can see my beloved Cambridge Satchel and the shortness of this dress!

I had such a great day being spontaneous and being a yes girl! I’m so pleased that I’m jumping at opportunities since the separation from my husband, I’m having a lot of fun and am very happy. This was perfect timing too, as I’m really keen to start modelling regularly again and would love to collaborate with more photographers for shoots for the blog, so if you know anyone, please get in touch and we can discuss projects!

What do you think of my outfit?
