Garden shed


I thought I'd go outside for outfit photos today, and do a quick pose by the garden shed! I went back inside pretty quickly though, because I was getting strange looks from the neighbours and I was freezing cold. The photos really highlight my complete lack of skill with a camera... (the white tights seem to reflect a little bit too much sunlight...). Has anyone got any tips for taking pictures outside? Should you face the sun, or find a shady place to stand?


Dress - Vintage
Denim Jacket - New Look
Shoes - Topshop
Belt - Vintage


The dress is another vintage find. Weirdly, I had found almost exactly the same dress in another charity shop earlier on the same day (must have been a popular dress when it was made!). I thought it was quite similar in colour, pattern and shape to this one, which is on sale in topshop at the moment.

I won't be blogging very much over the next week as I've got a few exams coming up. But I've got some DIY posts on the way so stay tuned!
Good luck to everyone who has exams :).

I just found your blog. You're super cute! I'm commenting on this post (hope you see it) because I have some advice for outdoor photos. When it's bright sun, try to find a spot in the shade. The light will be very flattering. Overcast days are also good, they give a similar light. Direct sun can be bad, it is very harsh. If the sun is behind you, use a flash (preferably soft, if your flash doesn't have that option, try putting a piece of white paper over it) so you aren't a silhouette. Not only is the light harsh when you face the sun, you'll be likely to squint and make weird faces.
