What I Wore: Time To Smell The FlowersFriday, May 24, 2013
It can't just be me who enjoys frolicking as soon as the sun comes out, all I want to do is is walk in the sun, play with the dogs and eat ice cream. Unfortunately since taking these I had a slight accident walking and texting and sprained my ankle - no more frolicking for me for at least a week or two. At least I got to take some photos in the sun surrounded by blossoms. I have a massive pile of work to do this weekend too, I'm helping a friend set up a blog for her art which has involved doing some basic blog design for her and taking lots of photos of her art. It's been an interesting experience, I'm so used to portraits and landscapes so I've learnt loads in just a few days. I love it when I can expand my knowledge and help a friend out at the same time. There is still loads left to do though, I'm going to have a busy weekend.
On to the outfit. I think I have fallen in love with this dress, in fact I am wearing it again today but this time with some black brogues (and a nice sock round my ankle), a yellow cardigan and a hat I borrowed from the friend I am helping. It is originally from Primark, and I've got to admit I admired it the last time I went in, but I managed to find a second hand one that looked unworn . I suppose that is one of the bonuses of fast fashion - it all turns up in charity shops eventually. It's pretty unusual for me to find something so soon after I have seen it in a shop, but I'm not complaining. I absolutely love the weight of the fabric (it's even lined) and the detail on the back is just adorable. Anyway, I am back to the grind stone - if anyone has any advice on photographing art or art blogs in general I would love to hear it! TGIF everyone.
