Well, well, well, look who's decided to make an appearance...yes I'm talking about the sun. After a completely miserable spell of weather over the last fortnight I am more than grateful to the sun for gracing us with his/her (is the sun male of female?!) presence. However, as other fashion/style bloggers will know it can make the photography side of things quite difficult! I couldn't get the lighting right inside so decided to take this little shoot into my garden. As a result of this, the photos have a much nicer backdrop, and in some ways are more vibrant, but I must apologise for any photography let downs caused by a) the sun or b) my mum's photography skills (yes I am a blogger without a tripod, but Christmas is coming!).
I haven't done an 'outfit of the day' post for a while on here, purely because of the amount of time it takes up, but make sure you're following me on instagram (search elisemckeever) to briefly see most of my ootd's!


Today I teamed my favourite new-ish Zara zebra print shirt with my ASOS staple winter skirt. I belted it and hung the shirt so that it fell down further on the sides than in the centre (above the belt buckle) to create a nice shape within the outfit, although this is a little more noticeable in real life than in these photos as I had no mirror to do arranging/composition during the shoot :-(
I always feel a little pretentious calling it a 'shoot', but what else can I call it? I wonder if other bloggers have this problem...
Anyway back to the outfit, um, yes boots. I bought these on Thursday for £30 from h&m. I thought they were a bit of a bargain so even though heeled boots weren't on my shopping list, I had to snap them up (oops). I do think they were a good buy though because they can be styled casually and smartly, and the extra height is a bonus for me being a short-ass! I'm still unsure as to what people's reaction would be if I wore these to sixth form though, as in, are they acceptable for school wear? I like to think so but we will see won't we!
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
