Golden Hour

It sounds silly, but since buying myself a new camera, I feel so much more motivated to blog! You may have noticed that I've been rather absent from the blogosphere over the summer - working full time was probably to blame, but I'm glad I have got back into the swing of things.

Now, I know in my previous post I concluded that I simply couldn't buy any more coats... well, the very next day I bought another new coat. To be honest, it's more of a jacket than a coat, but it seems to be 'boyfriend fit' so kind of counts as a coat on someone as short as me. At £7, I did have to have a long think about it, but in the end I just couldn't put it back on the rail (which incidentally, is a wonderful vintage rail at my local Cancer Research shop).

It's quite a masculine coat, which lends itself perfectly to an outfit featuring my skinny leather tie, previously seen here. I'm also wearing my absolute favourite retro blouse, originally from Jaeger, but thrifted for £2 some time last year. Very 1940s-gentleman-goes-to-work, don't you think? Haha.


The boy and I made use of the incredibly flattering light at 'golden hour', just before sunset, to take the photos. Saved me from having to add a 'vintage glow' on photoshop!


Finally, my friend has just re-launched his photography website at stewartgiles.com - please do have a little look! He does some great fashion related shoots :).

The whole look is completely cute, as usual. I think your choice of shoes really feminised it and gave it a bit of high kick!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! You're the first person I don't know and someone with fab style! X

Absolutely love this whole outfit. I love the style of the jacket, I have some great wool fabric that I would like to make a jacket out of. I'm on the look out for a pattern just like that jacket :)
