I’m not sure what it is about rather disheveled looking buildings that makes me want to snap photographs in front of. Don’t get me wrong, quaint streets and georgian buildings give off an air of romance, but perhaps it’s the contrast of a run down backdrop and a quite put-together outfit that appeals to me.
The location in question is down a back street in the centre of my town. During a day of meetings for some social media and freelance writing work I’ve been hired for, though not forgetting meeting my beloved for a spot of lunch and a cuppa in between, I thought I may as well capture my outfit du jour. When working freelance, I don’t necessarily like to dress overly smart for meetings – this cutesy playsuit paired with my patent black courts and my leather jacket gave quite the smart-casual look I was going for.
Not forgetting to mention my lust-worthy locket of course. A new addition to my jewellery box that I fell in love with at first sight (dramatic perhaps, but true!). Something about initialed lockets that fills me with child like excitement, no doubt it sends me back to the days when I wore one of those horrific alice bands with my name written on, in what was probably a glitter glue pen or something. You remember the ones, right? Whoops, slightly off topic. Who cares where the love stems from – what’s not to love? From the cute font ‘E’ to the floral border – it’s barely left my neck.
