That Street Life

Oh London how I've missed you.
These photo's were taken by one of my favourite humans: Saida Cane, (go follow immediately) when I met up with her and Lauren for a day of eating, chatting and events. 
After working 7 shifts in a row, it was amazing to get a few days off together and be in a position to see some friends and actually network with brands again. I didn't quite realise just how much I'd missed 'blog life' until I did it and GAWDDDD have I missed it. We went for brunch at a place called the Farm Girl Cafe and basically, the pancakes made me die in a good way.
Like history repeating itself, I opted for ultimate comfort in my gazelles, some basic black trousers and a floaty shirt from good old Urban Outfitters. I actually think this is probably the comfiest I've ever been in London and it made a nice change to not be wearing my uniform of ripped skinnies and an oversized leather jacket.
I was also thrown into that unfamiliar trend of 'Oh God what do I wear' before heading out and actually.. rather than feeling stressed about it, it was just so good to actually be putting outfits together again. I absolutely love my job but I don't think I love it quite as much as I love boots and coats. 
I've also found that having grey hair means that clothes can look totally different on me. Cooler tones tend to be more of my friend right now and actually I'm more than down with that as it means even more experimenting (and shopping.. maybe?)
I also just wanted to let you guys know that not only did it start to rain mid photo sesh, but we also acquired a one man audience who wouldn't leave us be and then my camera battery died.
So.. yeah.. winning at life.

Also, sidenote: I can't help but be super aware of how I look in photo's since having a conversation about my 'posing technique'. It sounds stupid to say that I've never thought about it before because I clearly have.. I think we all have those fifty million thoughts of 'oh god I look fat at this angle' or 'you'll see all my chins from there' as soon as someone points a lens at us, right?, but I hadn't thought about how I have actually learned over time which angles I hate the least and now naturally fall into them when having photo's taken.
It made me realise that because I'm forever posting photo's of myself online, it might come across like I just stand there and don't freak about my back fat or donut knees and well, that's just not true.
Still, fake it till you make it eh?




  1. I want your hair, please!!!! I love this outfit and I think you've got your posing technique down to a tee. I am so out of the loop, I kind of just stand there like a wooden plank for the first 15 minutes! xxx

  2. SO glad they look awesome, you can rock anything!! LOVE YOU xx

  3. Ah I HATE it when I'm taking photographs and people stop and stare! I was doing a shoot with a model in a parking lot once, it was totally empty because it was so early and bank holiday - and someone came and parked about 5 metres away from us and sat in their car watching! Seriously winds me up - I feel your pain!

    I also just STILL cannot get over how much I love your hair. Best decision you ever made missy!!

  4. You look amazing, this hair colour just looks heavenly on you. I know what you mean about photographs and angles. In my head, I know which angles aren't flattering, but I just can't help but fall into them. Don't know if i'll ever be totally comfortable with posing x
