It's been a while since I caught a sunset for a shoot! The days are getting shorter over here so it's our chance to capture it before grabbing dinner. I hate when you're taking photos and the wind gods decide it's a good time to unleash a full force gale...and I end up only liking photos of me looking down lol. It's like you're allowed to either look bald or have a face full of hair. Needless to say there was a lot of 'delete' clicking before posting these pics up!

I couldn't resist another kimono to accompany the hundred others in my wardrobe (great thing about them, they're ultralight and take up zilch space! All the reason to get more!) and it made me realise I'm running out of ideas on how to style them. They look best with crop tops and denim cut-offs for a festival vibe, or anything else that's form-fitted so you create balance with outerwear that's quite flowy and shapeless. These shorts from iCy Boutique are a really cute colour (my first pair of pink shorts!) but are quite short at the back, so the long kimono back covers it perfectly.

  2. I haven't been able to get sunset pics yet..Sadness! But maybe soon since it does get dark faster now XD but this outfit is amazeballs! Everything is just beautiful. And you're not the only one, I always choose the pictures of me or whoever I'm shooting looking down even when its NOT windy haha. They're always the best ones!!
