I think the title of this blog post sums up this photo shoot that i did with my friend perfectly. The second title alternative could have gone along the lines of "How to not take yourself so seriously". 
As i am delving a little bit deeper into the world of blogging and keeping up with a new Instagram, i have realised that to keep your head afloat in the world of blogging you really cannot take yourself too seriously. 

The other day i was talking with a friend about how i wanted the quality of my photographs to be better and we organised some time for her to come over with her camera and help me out by taking photographs of me and to help give me a little direction. 
From this i have learnt a few things.

1: I am not a natural poser.
2: I have three looks. Pouting, hysterical laughter and mardy arse.
3: If i cannot find humour in the photograph then i will find the negative.

I am not a model and thats ok. I have never wanted to be a model. I am a stylist and if outside of work i cannot find someone to dress up then i will just have to do it myself. All i can do is to promise to not try to be somebody any other than myself. So if you come across a photograph on my blog where i am laughing in a non posed way or have a slight resting bitch face, i can only apologise but whole heartily say that that is my true self and posing outside your neighbours nicely painted garage door with your friend pretending to be David Bailey is bloody hilarious. 

In this look i am wearing:

coat: asos
t-shirt: zara
cami: topshop
jeans: urban outfitters
shoes: converse
sunglasses: Dolce and Gabbana
necklace: urban outfitters

This outfit is all about layering and alternative looks. As a base the mum jeans and the camisole look very chic and paired with ballet pumps looks quite Parisian. Add the t-shirt with the ruffled cap sleeves and you get more of a feminism look. Then on top of that adding a patterned coat and a pair of converse you get a slightly urban alternative outfit.

If the stores have stopped selling the items i have mentioned i will add a link that has a close resemblance to the ones i am wearing.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. I think it will take me a little while to get used to having my photograph taken but at least it gave me a good belly laugh.
