These are my first photos taken with my new tripod. I bought this one and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Simple, lightweight and supports my SLR camera. I didn’t see any point spending a small fortune on some high-tech fandangle when all I am doing is basic outfit shots, and not hanging from a rock face or undertaking anything mildly professional. I still need to toy about with the focus of the shots and the positioning of the tripod to get the maximum out of my photos, but this is satisfactory for starters. It is nice to have the freedom to take photos at my own convenience, and not have to balance my camera precariously on a window sill or a tower of shoeboxes.
This outfit hints at my current fashion obsession of the moment. Sheer. Sheer blouses to be precise. I cannot seem to quench my love for them and am currently nesting a small collection of them, in a whole host of hues. I enjoy their floaty femininity and they are the perfect transitional piece into Spring. This particular blouse is from New Look. I love the black heart detailing and the deep V neckline, rejoiced by a sweetly-tied bow.
My skirt is from H&M, which I have to say is a store that is particularly delighting me at present. H&M can be extremely hit and miss, but at the moment it is a real treasure trove and I have rummaged and beheld some wonderful pieces. This skirt is faux-leather effect, and offers a lovely rich chocolate-brown colour. Anything high-waisted is a winner for me. I have a small (ish) waist and disproportionately big hips, so I think this combination is quite flattering. I may be lying and fooling myself…I don’t know if this is best for my shape? It has deep side pockets, as well as the zip detailing down the front. My tights, barely seen, are from H&M as well and I picked them up as I found the shade quite intriguing. A dusty purple-grey.
With this ensemble I wore my trusty brogues and toted around my Mulberry Roxanne.
What do you think? Are you revelling in sheer delight with all this season’s beautiful blouses?
