Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

There’s only one thing I wish I’d been able to do more of in Kuala Lumpur and that’s shoot some fabulous outfit posts. I know what’s happened to me. The thing is I’ve learnt this year that what makes my style posts go easier is a great backdrop and there were so many great locations in this Malaysian capital. Sadly travelling alone meant no-one to capture my looks. I did try asking random strangers, even by targeting those with SLRs and it didn’t quite work out. I have lots of blurry and cropped pictures of me in great locations.

Thankfully there was one day when I got to see the city, as well as Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week – more coming soon on the amazing fashion, with Joyce from Kinky Blue Fairy, which meant I was able to shoot one of my favourite looks from my trip, this gorgeous floaty maxi dress.

Feeling Tropical In Gap

Feeling Tropical In Gap

There have been a lot of seaside backdrops this summer for my style posts, helped in part by the fabulous weather, lets just forget about the majority of July, as well as my love of a day trip, the sound of the sea lapping up the beach, as well as the joy of feeling sand between my toes, pure happiness. 

For today’s style post adventure we headed over to Suffolk’s Southwold, a full-on quaint seaside town. It has everything a pier, colourful beach huts, adorable cafes, a lighthouse, fun arcades, a sandy beach and even a carousel, which all went perfectly with my tropical print Gap dress.

Styling Printed Shorts

Styling Printed Shorts

Does anyone else get a little fear when thinking about wearing shorts? Or is it just me. For years I stayed clear, then I discovered a pair of great fitting denim shorts, and I was kind of hooked on finding more. My search, I have to be honest hasn’t been overly successful, why do they have to be so tiny, why so tight, and why so unflattering?

Well I’ve found the most perfect pair of weekend shorts from Fat Face, they are so comfortable as they have a little flare, plus the elephant print makes them so adorable to wear, and I love that they are versatile. You can wear these beauties with a T-shirt, a shirt or even a jumper, and pair with sandals, wedges, and as I have done a bright pair of trainers.

My Style Post Evolution

My Style Post Evolution

This year I hope you’ve notice a change in my style posts, it was one of my goals for 2015 to make this section feel more editorial, glossy, and inspirational – so I’ve been trying new things, finding great locations, as well as try and inject my personality over into the pictures, instead of being a nervous wreck. I have to be honest it is something I still find difficult, I still get nervous posing, I’m over critical in editing, lots of photos don’t make the cut, and I still need a confidence boost to press publish so you guys can see. 

I mention on Instagram that my style posts have been on a journey this year, and thank you all for your lovely comments, it really has made me realised that I am on the right track. I think it has helped that I am doing them more regularly, something that you guys asked for and I hope that you’re enjoying seeing more of my style, it really has helped me step away from wearing jeans every day. I actually think it has been a while since jeans were the focus of a style post, and I’m quite proud that I keep pushing myself to try something new.
