Top: c/o Missguided. Jacket: c/o BooHoo (I think..) Skirt & Shoes: ZARA. Necklace: H&M. Earrins & Bag: Chanel.
These photos were taken a little while ago on an absolutely beautiful day in London, when I'd gone out for the day with one of my favourite friends Bianca. Let's just take a moment to gaze at these images and pine for the sun that has now sadly left us. I hope for us all that it will return soon. I should probably address something that to me, seems horribly wrong with these photos. I look quite tanned. This is some unrequested camera trickery, I have not recently popped to the Caribbean or basked in any kind of sun. I'm my usual shade of TRANSLUCENT. Not that there's anything wrong with being tanned, of course. It just doesn't suit me. I once had a spray tan when I was 15 in an attempt to make myself seem cool (it didn't work) and as I was leaving the salon a small child pointed at me and asked her mother 'Mummy, why is that girl so orange?' I looked like I'd rolled in mud - NEVER AGAIN.
In regards to the outfit, I do hope you like it. I feel like sometimes I look so prim and 'prissy' (I'm not even sure I know what prissy means but we'll go with it) and on occasion I wish I could be like one of those people who go around in ripped jeans and trainers looking all 'cool' and like they regularly go to the kind of concerts where there are no chairs and you have to stand up. That kind of thing. Then I remember I hate jeans and trainers make me look like an extra in Kevin & Perry. Do you ever wish you could pull off a style that doesn't suit you? Please let me know!
Oh and p.s. if you'd like to, and if you enjoy my blog & instagram, I'd be so happy if you took a minute to nominate me in the Company Style Blogger Awards for 'Best Personal Style Blog' There's a link to it in my sidebar - I've never made it to the Company Blog Awards yet so I'm hoping I might get there this year :)
Double p.s. You might also notice that I'm now 'arabellagolby.com' rather than 'arabellag.com', so now all of my social media usernames match, and I always felt like 'arabellaG.com' conjured up images of me as some kind of 'gangster' which is, let's face it, quite far from the truth..
