Taylor shot these black and white photographs a few weeks ago on a sunny Sunday morning. We hadn’t shot in black and white before so I was excited to see how these photos would turn out, and as always with Taylor she’s amazing at working with shadows so I think these came out pretty great! (Thank you taylor!)
Now, I’m not absolutely sure where this lovely weather has gone because I feel I won’t be wearing this outfit for a while. That is until the sun comes back out and I can finally put away my winter jumpers.
I picked up these Levi’s 550’s on eBay about 3 years ago for the grant total of 99p! The denim is still super stiff so I really need to wear them in more (I didn’t wear them for about two years after buying as they were a little too snug). I tailored the legs to make them more of a straight fit rather than the original tapered style which didn’t flatter my figure. I’m super happy with the fit of them now and will definitely wearing them lots this summer.
My jacket is the faux leather bog standard one Zara sold last summer. They also sold it in yellow (which I also had to buy), pale pink and pale blue, you know the ones. The black wrap around top is super similar to the one American Apparel sold but this one is from forever 21, a fraction of the price for almost the same quality.
I adore this handbag and shoes combo, if I had the budget they would be Gucci and Chanel but sadly I am an awful saver. So, instead they’re much cheaper versions!
These shoes are a dream! They were sold out for ages and as soon and they came back in stock I clicked ‘buy’. Although they cut my heels up the first time I wore them (for this shoot) they’re pretty comfortable now. This bag also fits a ton of things in, including my whole makeup bag, my glasses and charger etc. It looks great short and on one shoulder or longer and across the body.
