All You Need Is Love…

Lately my days off and free time have been a bit of a rarity. I’m working all sorts of crazy hours and therefore when a day off does show its face I can’t help but feel completely torn in knowing how to make the most of it!
 
Do I rest my weary bones (and my incredibly sore feet!) and have a long lie in, followed by a nap, a sandwich and a snooze? Or do I run around this beautiful city with a crazed determination to see and experience as much as possible?
 
I tend to settle somewhere in between the two.
 
 
These photos were taken on a beautiful sunny day, which I spent with my dear friend Sam, and later once she’d finished work, my flat mate Becca. 
 
I’m wearing my new favourite trousers from Beyond Retro – they fit like a dream! Nipped in waist, and cropped at ankle length – not bad for Β£8 eh?! They also have a crazy 80’s woven pattern in them too which I love!
 
 
My illustrated t-shirt is really old and comfortable! I bought it years ago at Camden market and at some point I chopped the sleeves off a little too low (hence wearing with a t-shirt underneath!)
I love John and Yoko and this illustration certainly does that affection justice!
 
 
I’m also wearing one of my trusty H&M mustard cardigans, and dug out this old Topshop bag from the top of my wardrobe. It’s really cute but a tad impractical!
 
 
Patent shoes and pasty legs…Perfect combination! I have absolutely zero interest in being tanned!
 
 
It would be worth interjecting at this point, that my friend Sam is a ridiculously great photographer (you can see some of his work here or follow him on instagram) and has a cheeky habit of slyly snapping away when you’re not really expecting it or paying attention! Some evidence of which is below!
 
Becca and I debating what sea food to purchase…Cockles? Prawns? Jellied Eels? (Certainly not!)
 
 
Getting stuck in with our choices! I opted for king prawns and Becca went for crayfish tails…Tasty stuff!
 
 
Engrossed in conversation and looking embarrassingly similar on Brighton beach… 
 
 
It was then of course time to turn the tables! Here is Sam! 
He’s put up with me for ten years now, so clearly as well as being a talented photographer he also possesses the patience of a saint!
We have some exciting collaborations in the pipeline…isn’t it great to be creative with friends?
 
 
I still have a heap of back-logged posts to get up on here! I also have exciting projects and ideas up my sleeve I can’t wait to share with you all!
 
Hope you’re all well!
Love Yours Truly, x
 
Ps. A huge thank you to Sam Luck for these lovely photos!

    Sam must be a great photographer; since I’m very interested in photography I’ll check his web-sites for sure!

    Also these pictures make me miss Brighton so badly, I remember how its sunset and beach activities are… must visit this city again.

    Can I ask which brand your shoes are? You just said Patent shoes but I can’t get if it is a brand or not πŸ™‚

    Hugs from Istanbul!

    You are without a doubt, one of my favorite fashion bloggers! Not only are your outfits lovely, but each shoot you do is so well thought out and beautifully composed. I love the settings you choose, often very vibrant and colorful.

    xo, Jamie

    I know the feeling re working mad hours – and I try to do the same…. have a bit of a lie in and then go exploring.

    I’ve never been to Brighton so I love seeing these seaside pics with you and your flatmate looking v stylish!

    Hope work calms down and you can enjoy the spring sunshine a little more πŸ™‚

    You look amazing, all your photographs of Brighton do make me incredibly jealous! I’m a little jealous of your trousers and shoes, too. xo

    These are such lovely photos – I especially like the one of you two girls making decisions at the kiosk. I have a friend who is wonderful for taking candid shots – it’s a definite skill and talent and always lovely to see the results of.

    These are really lovely photos. I think it must be really easy to take lovely photos of lovely ladies, but these are gorgeous.

    uh huh, day-off anxiety is all too familiar. I eagerly await a day off to sleep in and indulge, and then worry I won’t make the most of it! But looks like the most lovely day with friends!
