So this shoot was not only for my blog, but also for my MA! I’m doing a social media module to show how several group members use social media. Being a blogger and Instagram lover, I’m obviously a prime example aren’t I! So not only are photographs being took at this shoot, it was also filmed for the module! If you have me on snap chat or Instagram you’ll have seen some behind the scenes footage. However unfortunately I can’t share the videos with you guys, but here are the photographs from the shoot!
This outfit was inspired by my city break look-book, which I’m starting in roughly a month. I wanted an outfit that was both versatile, but also a bit edgy and on trend. I lately i’ve been dressing super girly, so I wanted to move away from constantly wearing white/nude shades.
The skirt is from Topshop petite at £25. Don’t worry taller girls, you can also buy it in the standard Topshop section! These frills are everywhere at the minute, and I’m loving the trend! I’ve never owned a red skirt before, and I can’t understand why. Because this skirt literally goes with everything. Even a plain white tee, and you’ll be on point in this! Its a got a raw edge which makes the skirt a little more modern, despite an obvious nod to the 80s. Considering I wanted a versatile outfit, I think this skirt definitely nails it. It’s the perfect skirt to dress up and down!
This tulle overlay body is also from Topshop at £22. Tulle is big at the minute, however must of the tulle pieces I’ve seen have been super girly, mostly white, pinks, or nude blouses. So I like the fact this body is a little bit more edgy. The top has a plain black body underneath, with the tulle over the top it…which was actually easier to get on than what it looks! Topshop styled the piece with dark blue jeans, which personally I don’t really think looked right. However styling the body over a skirt, makes the outfit a lot more fun. I think the body would also will help you nail the perfect #allblackeverything when paired with black skinny jeans and ankle boots.
What do you think of my #ootd? Do you like the tulle and 80s frill trends? Let me know in the comments!
