So I’ve finally plucked up the courage to do my very first outfit post (Eeek!), I really don’t like being in front of a camera if I’m not the one pushing the shutter. A while ago I went through my wardrobe and took a mass of clothes that I knew I would never wear to the charity shop. Even though it was a fleeting detox it was still the thing that was needed to finally give myself a little reality check in order to start the process of changing the way I was dressing. Not only were my clothes starting to get highly repetitive but I was getting lazy in the way I was dressing. Like seriously lazy. I bought myself a pile of new clothes before I went on holiday, so every day was an outfit that I had never worn before, which was completely refreshing. One of my favourite things was a New Look t-shirt dress that, with its loose fit, made it the perfect thing to wear in the 30 degree heat with all the walking we were doing..
Sooooooo Vanessa and I were walking around Liberty Island, the sun was shining and there was green space that no one was sitting on. I utilised that moment; “Okay Vanessa I’m gonna give this a go… Take the camera… Nooooo I feel awkward…” I was quite puling weird faces in every shot and generally just mucking around, because I could and it always makes things less intense.
Can you spot the smirk from me trying to hold in a giggle?
Nearly every dress I own has either been bodycon or skater but I always loved the look of this dress every time I went into New Look and I’m still not sure why it took me so long to actually buy it. It’s so easy to throw on and pair with any shoes – but my Infrared Red Air Max 90s were about my speed that day, and I had a bulldog clip the same colour as the red on my trainers in so very matchy-matchy.
And because why the hell not…
