[leather jacket, boots, leggings,skirt, jumper - all newlook and my necklace is from accessorise]
Here's a snap of me outside my house today. Just one picture cause I think you can see everything quite nicely. I'm not a fan of taking fifteen pictures where each is barely identifiable from the next. Like, I've moved my hand slightly and somehow this gives you such a fresh outlook on my style! But dare I say I may have gone too extreme in the opposite direction. I should and could have taken a couple more...
I will work on this.
Happy First Monday of March!
Happy Pancake Day tomorrow!

HAPPY MARCH EVERYONE!
(This month I turn 21)
So I haven't been back home since the Christmas holiday. That's seven weeks since I've slept in my lovely comfy double bed. Seven weeks since I've had a decent shower (my student shower sucks!) but most importantly, seven whole painful weeks since I've been by the sea. Growing up on the coast makes you form a certain attachment with it. You yearn for it when you're away. It's like a breathing thing. Pulling up to the seafront, I put the window down and took a deep breath of lovely fresh sea air. My lungs started to work again.
Anyway, I'm only back for a few days but I'm planning to make the most of it. Today we went to Brighton and had a late lunch beside the seafront. It would've been nice to go for a walk but it was crazily cold so instead we went down to the beach and took some photos of the pebbles and the pier and the beautiful pink sky. I also managed to get my reluctant father to take a couple of snaps of my outfit. As you can see, I am wearing a mint green jumper. I am currently really into my pastels and so excited to wear lovely spring colours when the weather perks up and the heat rises above freezing here. Below are the details of my outfit. I am so ashamed of my obvious Newlook obsession. Don't judge.
[Jacket, Skirt, Jumper, Leggings, Boots - All Newlook, Necklace and scarf - Accesorise, Gloves- Matalan]
Anyway, let me know what you think of my outfit, my pictures and if you live by the sea, do you long for it when you're away or am I just crazy?
P.s as you may, or may not, have noticed, the quality of my pictures aren't quite as good as normal. That's because I stupidly forgot my lovely DSLR and instead had to use my mums rather good, but not as good, digital camera.

|[Leggings, Skirt, Jacket, Boots and Bag - (all) Newlook, Socks - Next, Jumper - George, Snood - Accessorise]|
Above is me (excuse my crazy windswept hair). Here is a typical outfit of mine at the moment. Layers, a snood and my new heeled boots. You know, these boots have taught me something. Just a bit of extra height is good for a girl. You walk a little taller even if the heel is only an inch or two. Good for the soul and all that. I'm gonna abandon my flats for a bit cause I'm bored of feeling short.
While my family visited me this weekend, we found this beautiful little antique shop at the docks in Gloucester. It was a great place to explore. I love vintage and antiques and nothing is more exciting than digging through beautiful old things and trying to write them a past. Who owned them? Who's used them? How did they make it here? That sounds pretentious but I guess it's the writer in me. Well anyway, I came away with a 1930's Vintage Brownie Kodak camera. So cool it deserves, and will get, a post of its own. Now just to work out how to use it and then I can post my photo results on here.
Anyway, here are some of the photos I took whilst exploring the shop!
Leave me a nice comment below? It doesn't even have to be related to this post. I just like reading what you have to say!
Happy Tuesday Guys :)

I learnt a few things yesterday, while doing this photo shoot:
1. Shooting on an overcast, rainy, windy day is an absolute nightmare.
2. I am very out of practise with my camera.
3. Always clear your SD card before a shoot.
Yesterday, I asked two of my Uni friends to do a photo shoot with me. It's been a while and I knew my camera skills were a little rusty. I wanted the chance to do some photography and although it was fun (read as freezing cold) it also showed me how little I know about photography. I'd love to take a course and get a little more competent with my DSLR.
Juleesa is wearing:
a dress from Apricot
Tights from Primark
Shoes from Newlook
a Hat from Newlook
a jacket from La redoute
Gloves from M&S
and her umbrella is from Tiger
Charl (from A Place on the Bookshelf) is wearing:
a dress from Primark
Tights from Next
a jumper from Primark
a bag from ASOS
shoes from Primark
a necklace from Primark
I was thinking of posting what my friends are wearing more often (maybe making it a monthly feature case it gives me the chance to do more photography) and also trying to get a few more of my outfit posts on my blog over the next couple of weeks.
Let me know your thoughts and if you have any great photography tips, please leave below!
Happy February Y'all.
