First Sign of Sunshine



I said I wanted to do more fashion based and outfit posts; however the thing is I don't even know where to start. I'm no expert on taking close up photographs, but I feel like after a lot of practice with them I've grown quite comfortable with taking and editing pictures of make up ect. Outfit posts on the other hand are a whole different ball game. I have to rely on others who don't know how to work my camera so well and when it comes to posing I'm also a little useless. I'm hoping that after a while, and after I've invested in a slightly better lens I'll be able to do these on a regular basis as there's nothing that gives me greater pleasure than putting an amazing ensemble together.

So today I saw the opportunity to get into some spring gear as I woke up to actual sunshine. YES IN SCOTLAND. Like everyone else here, and probably people from other parts of the UK too I was out of bed like a shot heading to my nearest beer garden for a little time in the sun. It was a Saturday so obviously everywhere was completely mobbed and even at 12 noon the beer gardens were over crowded and people were genuinely sunbathing beside the river. Its complete madness! But its amazing to be able to go out knowing that your hair will not be affected by a major down pour of rain as soon as you step out of the house, and everyone is instantly in a better mood, which is just lovely.

Now obviously its not quite warm enough for shorts yet *crying emoji*, but I did feel it was nice enough outside to flash a bit of midriff and forget the winter coat for once. This whole ensemble is from Topshop sans the shoes which are Office. I love these printed trousers and genuinely can't get enough of them. It's so good to have something else to wear other than leggings or jeans and they fit in well with my whole 'smart casual' vibe. These shoes are great because they are so comfortable to walk in but they still give me some much needed extra height.

What do you lot think of this outfit? Are you keen on printed trousers?

  1. I totally agree about doing fashion posts, I'd love to do more but I don't feel like I can get them to the standard I want by myself and I'm struggling to find someone capable of using my camera properly! This is a great post though - I absolutely love that outfit xxx

    1. It is indeed and a lovely one at that! Aw I was too at first I'm really tiny like 5"2 so I never think I can pull these kind of posts off as most fashion bloggers always look so tall and pretty but I think you just have to take am deep breath and forget about any insecurities :) xxxx
