Double Denim

DSCN1388

Double denim has come into my life and I want him (her) to stay. I’ve paired my Danish denim coat with my ripped knee grey jeans. The dark denims compliment each other with getting out of my comfort zone. Apparently curly hair is on trend so I left mine to air dry. I’m all for curly hair being on trend, it means I can stop damaging my locks so much trying to straighten it.

I spent the day over in Wimborne looking around the shops and stopped into Walford Mill. An old mill that’s been converted into an art gallery and gift shop. The last time I was here was to sketch the exhibit on show for my A-level exam, which was about 4 years ago!

This is the only photo I took inside, you’ll just have to see the creativity for yourself.

Walford have workshops and new exhibits on all the time, so get yourself down there and get cultured. ūüėČ

Shooting with Light

I’ve always wanted to take photography classes and since my course allows that I’ve fallen in love with photography. I try and think about what I’ve learnt in class and recreate that on this blog (my old site was full of bad photos)

On this rare occasion I found myself on the other side of the lens, in-front of the class ( it’s quite intimidating having 15/20 people looking at you)

Working out some interesting lighting techniques was so interesting. I think the shots of me are hilarious because I never look this nervous having my photo taken.

What I really liked about the photos is the focus on my jacket, all the details are highlighted by shadow and light. The green being off set against my hair and matching my eyes.

I want to create photos like these more often for my blog. Don’t they look so much more interesting!?

Hope you enjoyed reading,

Amelia, XO

Black and White Knit Dress

DSCN1253

I never thought I’d wear a knitted dress, I always thought I had the wrong body shape for it. But when I tried this Topshop number on I fell in love. And it’s one of the trends for ss/16!!¬†DSCN1245 DSCN1246 DSCN1247 DSCN1249 DSCN1250 DSCN1251 DSCN1252

I’ve dressed this knit up with a pair of knee high black boots and some serious straight hair. But this dress would look equally as good with a high pony tail, ballet flats and bare legs.

Checked Dress at Star Wars

This is what I wore to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. i don’t really have any thoughts about it yet, I enjoyed the film and didn’t once think ‘ this is one long film’. So I guess I liked it and am glad I went. I’m not a film critic, so I’ll leave it there.

I’ve finally taught myself how to curl my hair ( ‘but you ¬†hair is curly’ i hear you cry) When I try to curl my hair no matter that I try the curls never stay in, until now. I’ve found a way for me to have defined curls and have them last, it’s only taken me 21 years!

I wore

jacket –Baum und Pferdgarten

dress –Zara

lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss

Summer in Winter

DSCN1054 DSCN1055 DSCN1056 DSCN1057 DSCN1058 DSCN1061 DSCN1063 DSCN1066 DSCN1069 DSCN1072

I’ve been wanting to wear these trousers all through autumn and into winter, but never found the perfect way to stay warm and still look good. I think I’ve found it, flowing layers, and knits.

Pairing this long cardigan with these trousers was such a happy accident. The cardigan is super light weight yet I didn’t feel cold taking photos in the wind ( see all photos above of me not managing the wind) Ofcourse I had to glam it up a little with some rose lips and patent nude heels.

Winter Party Nights

DSCN1028 DSCN1029 DSCN1036 DSCN1038 DSCN1039

I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.

I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac ¬†non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.

The Winter Cape

DSCN0987

This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works. DSCN0988 DSCN0989 DSCN0990 DSCN0991 DSCN0992

I think I’ve found the perfect black jumper for winter! (I know that’s a big statement) The fit is perfect, it’s warm ( no need to layer up) the little slits al the sides add a little detail the high neck. There is no frills ¬†to this jumper, it does it’s job and it does it every well. I love pairing it with a bright shirt to make a statement.

Truro: Sam’s In The City

The first in a series of wedding posts, if you didn’t know my dad is getting married in Cornwall this weekend. So my brother and I are over in Truro to get celebrating. One of this first celebrations is a girls dinner at Sam’s in the City.

DSCN0718

I went for the Chicken and Bacon main. I never go for salad or anything with green in it, but this was totally worth it. The dressing was deliciously sticky and bacon salty and the salad crisp and light.

DSCN0720-001

It’s only right after salad to have cheese cake right? This whole dinner is filled with things i never like to eat, and I’m not a fan of cheese cake at all. This is the New York cheese cake with a scoop of ice cream. Caramel sauce, sweet berries and rich cheesecake, delicious!

Of course the only place with any sort of lighting was the bathroom. ūüôĀ

Winter Style

I thought there would be a transition between summer and Autumn, turns out one day it’s glorious sunshine the next its torrential rain. Typical British weather! Though it does mean that I can start to work in my winter wardrobe.

I’ve never worn a turtle neck before, I always thought that I had to much in that chest area for it good. But this baggy drop sleeved one is perfect. paired with high waisted black skinnies it’s a perfect casual outfit. Of course I had to wear my Topshop orange flats!!
