2 rare sightings


dress: monki
bag: ebay
shoes: clothing at tesco*
sunglasses river island
nails: models own hedonist*

This outfit photo contains two rare things you may not have seen on my blog. Me with my hair up and a full length outdoor photo! I've come to the conclusion that Somerset House is the only place you will ever see a full length outdoor photo of me! It seems it is only Fashion Week or when I'm there with people who are willing to take a photo of me I get one done! I wish I had someone to follow me around taking photos for me but I haven't quite reached that level yet! Anyway, all I've done today is wander around London aimlessly even though my schedule was packed I ended up sacking stuff off and things getting cancelled all because of the beautiful weather. I don't think I've loved and hated in equal amounts living in London today. It was WAY too hot to do anything! I wore my hair up as it was just ridiculously hot and hid behind my ridiculously oversized sunglasses! Big thanks for Victoria for taking these for me!

  11. so so lovely :) I think the hair up looks so good on you and it's
    so new that you took some outside. but i love both kind of photos :)
    I know... sometimes it's hard to have someone, who takes pictures of you. -.-'
    really annoying!
    cannot believe that it's so hot over there. the last time I was in london it almost
    rained and it was so windy :'D

  36. So jealous of the sun!! I've moved from manchester to Cape Town, and whilst its baking in the UK, its dull and rainy here!! Shouldn't complain though, a Cape Town winter is probably better than a UK summer, the only problem is I have brought the totally wrong clothes as I never thought the waether would be this bad!!!!!
