The Awkwardness of Solo Photography

Hey Lovelies, Hope you are all well today!

Today I am bringing you  an outfit post that I have fallen in love with. (massively) The taking of these photos today was quite an achievement. Knowing that I had want to get these photos taken, and not having my wonderful partner Michael around to take them for me I decided to go on the hunt with my tripod for a good spot.

After driving around numerous roads that were far to busy for my lack of confidence I remember a cute little cycle track near where Michael parents live. Does anyone else get that with taking photos in public? I’m not to bad when Michaels with me but I always get embarrassed whipping out my Tripod for all the world to see. (that sounds like a euphemism) 

Anyway after the fun of stares, cyclist getting in the way and a dog taking interest in my tripod. I finally got some desired shots that I was looking for.

The skirt itself is from a little Dove house charity shop and only cost me £3.00. I love the length and think it goes perfect with heels or in this case heeled boots. Charity shops are the perfect place to find midi skirts and this is one of many that I have found.

The boots are also a new purchase. Last years boots are in a sorry state and Michael decided to treat me to these beauties on Sunday. They are the perfect boot for that Summer Autumn transition and I love the fact they have a bit of a heel!

 

WHAT I WORE

Navy Polka Dot Skirt – Dove House Charity Shop – £3.00

Do you have any charity shop finds that you are super proud of? Let me know!

  2. I still haven’t got over the hurdle of taking my own photos in public/ or letting someone else do it so obviously! You was so brave and it was certainly worth it. You look amazing!

  3. I love the skirt! I got a bargain dress from Dove House Hospice recently that I love. These are such good shots, whenever I’ve taken photos on my tripod I always pretend I’m taking photos of the scenery whenever anyone walks past haha!
