Wonderful Megs

On Saturday I drove into town for the first time in what feels like forever. I don't really go in that much anymore - opting to go to smaller shopping centers or restaurants and when I do,its usually with my boyfriend and he normally drives (what can I say... I'm obviously a lady of leisure). It's funny, you can completely overlook somewhere that's so close to you so easily, and whereas normally I'm all 'Oh god, get me home already' this time it was a little different, and that'll be down to the fact that I met up with Megs from Wonderful You and she introduced me to the best meal I've ever had. (If you're interested, it was a crispy duck salad from the chinese place in Selfridges.. Yes I know it's a salad but seriously you need to try it. )
So as I'm sure you're already aware, Megs is basically the most visually pleasing thing to grace this planet so I thought that I should make a bit of an effort to make my basic outfit look a little bit more considered and so I went for the most amazing Topshop boots I got in the sale about fifty years ago - Weird thing though... they're toeless boots, and I'm wearing tights.. right? But I thought, whatever, I'm gonna rock it. This lasted all of about ten minutes until I pulled up to get petrol and noticed a hole in my tights on my big toe.. what with that, and the fact that they were extremely uncomfortable to drive in, I caved and slipped my feet into my trusty air max (and didn't look back until outfit photo's were taking place) so just try and imagine this outfit with some beaut heeled boots and I might look a little better?

All photos taken by Megs

Megs kindly took these photos for me and persevered through my inability to stop smiling goofily or waving my arms around, what a babe. It was pretty cool to get some shots done somewhere other than in by garden - even if I haven't quite figured out how to hide my worst angles when someone else is holding the camera. What do you think of the photo backdrop? Would you like to see more shots in different places, or do you like the consistency of me using the same place? Let me know, I'd love to know what you think!

Aside from leaving town feeling even poorer, I also left feeling totally full from duck and strawberry milkshakes, my face ached a little from laughing and I felt thoroughly thankful for the blogging world for allowing me to hang out with someone that turned out to be even more of a babe than I'd thought possible.

What did you get upto at the weekend?

  8. I love these photos, and I think different backgrounds is nice. Also duck and strawberry milkshake? Thats either a super weird combination, or a lack of a comma haha! Love the short hair btw.
