Occasionally I Take Shots

Shot by Me | Styling & Model - @taylahelaine | Makeup - @doyinrosemua

Something I haven't done for a while on my blog is share my photography work.
In case you don't know I currently study Fashion Styling & Photography and studied Photography previously at ALevels. It is a extreme love, occasional hate interest of mine. I've wanted to be a fashion photographer for a while now but have been put off by uni projects and lack of motivation. However, my friend contacted me the other day and asked if I wanted to shoot some photos for her styling portfolio. I decided to push myself and go for it, especially as I'm supposed to remaining in touch with my creative side this holidays (which has failed miserably) and I need to update my photography portfolio. I have to say this is probably some of my best work yet and I am very proud of it. My friend styled & modelled it and her friend did the makeup, which she taught herself from watching YouTube!! Then I took the shots, there were so many to edit so I had to choose my favourites. I picked out some for this post but I'm planning to make some form of online portfolio of my work altogether, so watch this space for that.
Hope you like them.

T R O P I C S

Necklace - Mums | Vest - Primark | Midi Skirt - Forever21

Somewhere between selling this skirt and keeping it.I picked it up in Forever 21 a while back because the print looked so good and I wanted to try something different instead of jeans. Months down the line, it still resides in my wardobe, tag still attached, unworn. Yeah I have a really bad habit of selling myself dreams when it comes to certain clothing. However before I decide what to do with it, it needs to make its debut on my blog.
Forever 21 really has some great pieces instore, this was more of an impulse buy than anything. It caught my eye and I had to have it just because. I don't even wear skirts but hey, you never know! In this outfit I went really plain with the top, a simple white vest, the skirt is extremely busy so I didn't want to clash plus it brings out the white in the skirt a bit more. I went for this lace detail metal necklace, a personal fav, stolen from my mum's jewellery collection. This would be perfect on holiday with some white sandals, that's what I think of when I look at the print. So maybe that'll be my excuse for not wearing it yet. Saving it for a holiday, whenever that is.

Cleated Soles & Boyfriend Jeans

 Crop Top - Primark |Boyfriend Jeans - Topshop 'Hayden' | Cleated Sole Sandals - New Look

Multiple blog photo attempts later & we have finally have an outfit post.
I think I've found a new Topshop denim favourite. The Topshop 'Hayden' jeans are perfect. I'm usually a skinny jean person & Topshop 'Leigh' jeans are the perfect pair in terms of their fit. However when I bought a pair of these for my styling project I fell in love. Ripped denim boyfriend jeans, can you really go wrong. They come in so many different designs but these were my favourite as I'm not big on rips just yet. I actually wore these to Manchester the other day with a loose tshirt but decided to try it with this Boyfriend crop top from Primark & they went so well together. Despite me not actually wearing them outside I wanted to pair this outfit with my new cleated sole babies. I got these in New Look when I was in Manchester. I think I'm going back to New Look to get them in black too! I've wanted chunky heeled sandals for ages and these are perfect! This is about as close to normal shoes I'm going to get at the moment. I'm so ready for England to have more hot days so I can wear these out.
