Jacket- F&F
Skirt- H&M (similar one here)
Necklace, socks and boots- Primark
Not going to lie....these photos came with tears!! I think I have come to the realisation that I prefer being behind the camera rather than in front of it. I have always been happy with my body for as long as I can remember but I really hate close up pictures of my face. It is a strange one because when I look at myself in the mirror I feel ok but when I look at pictures of myself I cringe. This is why I wear sunglasses in a lot of my outfit posts....rain or shine!
I am going to work on this, maybe I need to take more relaxed photos rather than posey ones where I am trying and failing to pull off the 'straight from a magazine cover' model look! I think a lot of my self confidence issues surfaced when my anxiety was really bad 2 years ago. Does anyone else feel like this or am I alone???
On a side note, I am very happy with the new top I purchased in the kids section of New Look!! Either kids are super tall these days or I am just really small, but I am not complaining because small means cheap and I bagged this gorgeous gingham number for £7.99.
Hope you all had a nice weekend.



  1. I love this outfit, the skirt/skort is fabulous xx

  2. i was just about to comment saying how beautiful you looked and then i read what you'd written. everyone is their own worst critic, i think you look gorgeous and should definitely stay in front of the camera!!

    lots of love xxxxxx

  3. Loving Gingham for this season and this styling is fab hun! xx


  4. Gorgeous outfit - I adore the skirt x

  5. Look at your tiny little waist! This is an uber cool look, styled perfectly. Girl you are a FOX! You have such a beautiful face and I'm not just saying it. Sometimes I hate my face too, I think it's natural to feel like that now and again. I definitely want to start taking more natural photos, it's something I'm going to work on!

  8. You and your outfit both look lovely. Your checked gingham New Look top looks great styled with your F&F jacket, H&M skirt and that pretty Primark necklace. You have a very pretty face. I hope you feel more relaxed for future photoshoots. I'm sure your smile is beautiful.
