OOTD: Broad Daylight


Broad Daylight

Sometimes doing an outfit photos is hard, the day we took these photos the light was seriously fading, so we had to be fast, which is tricky for someone like me who needs 50,000 photos to look half decent in just one of them. We were also on a pretty busy street and bratty school children kept stopping to heckle us. Then, just as we thought the coast was clear, an old man stopped us and insisted on getting in the shot. I was tempted to use the photo in this post, but he was a bit creepy and my freaked-out smile is less than picture-perfect!


 Black Chanel Handbag

I dreamed of owning this black Chanel handbag for years and then I finally got it, wore it for a while and then put it away. What an idiot! It’s been a while since I have used it and I hadn’t realised how much I missed it! Isn’t it a beauty?! If you are considering buying a Chanel handbag, I suggest you read this post, as I think it could be kind of helpful!


Dower & Hall Ring

For years, I was all about the big statement jewellery, but to be honest, I’m kind of over it now. Maybe it’s old age, maybe it’s trends changing, but whatever it is, I’m all about the smaller, daintier style jewellery now. Dower & Hall jewellery is a real favourite of mine, it’s all made in England and it’s beautifully designed. I have been stalking their website for a while now, trying to figure out which crystal rings I like the best. It’s a tough old choice, but I love this smoky grey stone, it goes with everything and perfect for layering up with other jewellery too!

    So glad you got your dreamy photos babe, they were definitely worth the hassle! So much love for this gorgeous ootd; the blue tones of your fur coat is stunning and the boots, Chanel and sunnies finish it off fabulously <3
