THE TEA DRESS

HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY! I hope you're all taking full advantage of the three day weekend, I certainly am. It's been a few weeks since my last post, I've been so busy trying to organise my life, there are simply not enough hours in a day, or even week to fit everything in. Now that I'm all organised again, my blog has taken the number one spot once more.

With Summer on the horizon and I'm a big fan of dresses, especially one with a pattern! As soon as i saw this tea dress in the new in section of ASOS back in January, i has to snap it up. As there's still a little chill in the air, I have been layering it with my other love...a black polo, last count I had six, yes six identical black polo tops all from different brands. 

There are three things that i absolutely love about this dress; 

THE NECKLINE: A v neckline is very flattering, especially if you have a large chest, it's perfect for layering a selection of necklaces. 

THE LENGTH: As I'm 5'11 it's always struggle finding dresses due to them always being two short! but this dress sits just above my ankle, meaning i can show off my footwear and of course i don't have to worry about showing the world the underwear on a windy day. 

THE COLOUR: Green is a colour that i have become to love over the past year, and compliments my dark hair, blue eyes and pale skin perfectly.

MY FIRST OUFIT ON 35MM

Hi all, I'm so excited to finally share with you the first set of images that have been shot on film. All the images in this post have been shot on 35MM film using my Mum's Olympus Muji II, yes my she had the famous Olympus Muji camera hidden in the depths of her camera draw. After I stumbled upon it when she was having a winter clear out, she kindly passed it onto me and after a trip into town to buy a roll of film and a new battery I instantly started snapping.

As I haven't quite got the self-timer worked out just yet, these pictures were taken by Mum, who seems to be better at using a film camera that digital or even an iPhone come to think of it.

I know it may not be my best look or even the best pictures that I have shared with you, but we all have to start somewhere right! I know I'm going right back to basics but I've always loved film photography, I always feel more creative and if the pictures don't come out quite right it's not the end of the world.

The colour of the wall compliments the array of colours and patterns in my new-ish skirt from Simply Be and I just had to try the camera out. Achieving the pose right but it's so much harder with a film camera, you can't just delete an image if you don't like it or shoot on continuous mode when using an SLR camera, but that's something for me to get used to as time goes on.

I hope you like these photographs as much as I do. I can't wait to share more content on film with you all very soon.
