We're All Leaving

To celebrate finally getting my DSLR camera back I decided to organise a quick little shoot in the graveyards with the wonderful Dylan. Despite getting bitten by mosquitos every five seconds I had such a lovely morning. Dylan's cheekbones could slice a cake.

I've been really loving photographing graveyards lately and am thinking of doing a series on them. I've been planning to do a couple of exhibitions next year and to start focusing on my nature and fashion photography again because I feel like i've lost myself a little bit lately. I've stopped focusing on what I am truly passionate about and what makes me happy and that has been one of the biggest mistakes i've made this year. I've been really enjoying exploring the fashion bloggersphere, making more regular blog posts, planning future posts and sharing with you my style. It has been a really fun year starting this blog and the feedback you have all given me has been so heartwarming. I can't wait to continue this blog and to watch it grow and watch my style grow with it.

At the same time, as mentioned earlier, I have been neglecting my nature photography and will probably be incorporating this into my blog as seen in this post. I may add some nature photographs in the series I post, as well as take my fashion blog photoshoots to some beautiful settings so as to incorporate both my favourite things. I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I am enjoying it. I've been really inspired to get back to my true self, to my true passions and to expressing these. I sincerely hope you all enjoy the progression of this blog and I would love to hear your feedback on what you would like to see. Have a wonderful day.

Tongue Tied and Twisted.

Hello all. I've been trying out different ways to wear grid patterns lately (as i'm sure you are all very aware if you follow my instagram or know me personally) and thought i'd show you all one of my favourite outfits. I tend to wear this to work as it's easy to transition from work mode to play in something like this. I think in a job like fashion anyway it's so imperative to express your own personal style and luckily enough for me my aesthetic tastes are near identical to that of the company I work for! I've been mixing up my time between wearing colour and then wearing black on black on black and I have to say.. black is definitely home for me. Where I feel most 'me.' I love combining different materials and patterns to create an original look, finished off with my silver and black jewellery (which I wear every day). That said, i've also been absolutely loving wearing colourful dresses and then teaming it with all black accessories, shoes and jackets. I think fashion is all about exploration and fun.

Pale Clouded White.

Having a lovely day in the sunshine after two days of crazy thunderstorms and large hail. I love this seat in my garden, we found it behind a wall of hedges and vines a few months ago with some animal bones (ahem) and had to bring it out so we could sit on it during the summer nights. I bought this dress because I have a self confessed addiction to collared outfits. I just can't get enough of pointed collars. The dress is in a beautiful soft fabric that caught me by surprise and is the perfect material for a cooler summer day or a warmer autumn one. I teamed it with some cute polka dot socks and my pointed chelsea boots which I seem to be wearing near every day at the moment. I threw on a cute black felt hat to finish off the look and keep the darned sunshine out of my eyes (yes, I know, i'm a vampire) and wore my Limecrime Velvetines lipstick in Wicked. Initially I wasn't a fan of the lipstick. I found it bled a little, came off after eating and drinking and wasn't easy to apply but after a few uses I certainly got the hang of it and if you apply a lip liner first it looks gorgeous all day long.

Hope you're all having a lovely week. Amelia x

 Hello all! Sorry for the little hiatus in outfit posts lately! I am back and will be posting reguarly! Over the past few months i've become rather addicted to grid prints and have bought a couple of items recently thanks to the lovely company Boohoo. I've been a real fan of the co-ord trend that has been going around this spring/summer and decided to give it a shot myself with a team of black and white grid patterned crop tops and trousers. I love these pieces because not only can you wear them together but you can break them up to wear them with separates like black jeans on a casual day out or a dressier top and heels for more formal occasions. These pieces are super versatile, comfortable and totally fulfill my desire to wear cute black and white prints every day. I'm in heaven.

Whisky my cat decided to come and be a part of all the fun. Doesn't he match wonderfully?
