New day, new blog post! (So on a roll here) I'm so excited to show these pics that I took all by myself! One fine Sunday morning I just sucked it up, trekked to a park, set up my tripod and trusty remote control and snapped some pics. I'm not currently in the most stable relationship right now so I need to teach myself be more independent in several ways, including updating content for my blog by being both the photographer and the model.

I'm pretty happy with the results as it's such a welcome change from my house balcony shots with a more interesting, lush background and with the open space I have greater opportunity to capture pretty bokeh and light. I get to tap further into the capabilities of my SLR, play with Photoshop, and most importantly, do stuff all by myself that I can be proud of! :)

I featured a few items from YesStyle in the previous blog post here http://www.metallicpaws.com/2014/08/back-to-school.html, and today I'm featuring another cute item by them! This black and white striped top has such a striking but simple design, and looks fab over skinny jeans or denim cutoffs for a laidback but trendy look. I'm not always into cut-outs (they need to be tastefully added) but the ones at the shoulders here are perfect and appropriately positioned. The top isn't even $30- YesStyle stuff is so good in being affordable :)

YesStyle's back to school special is still on- get an extra 10% off your purchase + free shipping (without a min. purchase requirement with the coupon code BTSAUG14 :) Ends on 31 August.

  1. I think you did pretty damn well taking those photos! I do hope your relationship life gets better though!! :)
    & it's pretty cool how much heels can add to a simple jeans 7 tee outfit right?

  2. Cute striped tee! It's fun being able to take the tripod out and about and find new photo spots now and then! :) I haven't done that for a while, been a bit preoccupied with baby, but sometimes it's nice to visit a spot you've passed by one day and wanted to come back to!

  5. You did an amazing job taking your own photos, Izzy! Wish I was as good... I definitely agree it can be hard to run a blog if your SO takes all the pictures and then things don't go so well...

  21. Wow, you did a great job! My self-timer photos are always grainy, though that's more the fault of the camera, since even those taken by others are horrile quality. =D I really like the top, it looks amazing with your hairstyle. I hope your relationship will get better, though it's good you see the positive things and the chance to become more independent...
