seventy times 7









dress: topshop concessions
jacket: primark (old)
boots: topshop (similar here)
bag: zara
hat: H&M

Yet another family member was dragged into the rain to take some outfit snaps for me today. We all joke that my brother hasn't got a arty bone in his body. He wants to study Bio-Chem at university and in all honestly is just one of those "classic nerd" type guys. However I'm surprised at how well he managed to compose some of these photos! I know a lot of people would prefer me to do these ~outdoorsy pics~ when Im back in London, but I just don't have anyone to take them for me! Everyone I know works during the day so I have to make do with my tripod!

Today I went shopping with my Mum quickly, I didn't buy anything as I need to stop buying things as the suitcase I'm living out of is already at capacity! I did pick up some new bedding for my new house from Primark which I adore! Side note: Little life update! Im moving back to London in two weeks, I move into my new place on the 20th and I cannot wait! I bought this Tiger dress from one of the Topshop Concessions in the Oxford Circus store. I'd wanted it for a while and thought "Meh, go on then!" I really like it even if the overlay it is a little too long for me, it hits at one of those weird lengths but it seems to work quite well in all. Obviously I paired with the only pair of shoes I have with me here at my Mum's, my Topshop Alvins. I have found some similar dupes on ebay if you were looking for cheaper alternatives as the Topshop ones have sold out!

My blogging cravings are getting to me and all I want to do is post regularly again so I've planned a few shoots with some students over the next few days to get me into having content again! I probably should have bought my tripod with me but oh well! Least we have a date for when "normal" blogging will resume! Fingers crossed nothing goes wrong this time!
