Birds of Paradise

Yes, another outfit post! I make no apologies for this however, as I have come to realise that I take fashion risks far more regularly than I do in my make up choices at the moment. I think a lot of that is down to a lack of time. Throwing on an outfit that's different to any you've worn before, despite not buying anything new, doesn't take up much of my time. Blending shadows, applying eyeliner and spending an age getting my lipstick even (as I have asymmetrical lips, annoyingly!) is definitely more time consuming. As I am so close to getting the majority of the work in for my MA, time is a valuable commodity for me right now (Did anyone see the film In Time with Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake? My life is like that...except not at all like it either).

I can only apologise about the less than perfect image quality and the fact that they are boring and taken inside. Again, this comes down to time restraints. I want to keep content on my blog and therefore, for now, shortcuts must be made. I just don't have the time to spend sourcing beautiful locations. Not until my final essay is written and I have a little more time in between dissertation writing and research. I promise to really up the anti in terms of photography then! I can't buy new equipment, but I will learn new techniques with the stuff I have. Anyway, onto the outfit!

A very casual outfit! Comfortable, but I felt smart all the same.
