Today’s shoot was done at one of my favourite places in London; Greenwich. If I had a limitless supply of money I wouldn’t go and live in Hampstead or Notting Hill or any of those other celeb-style places, I would live in Greenwich. I’m a massive history buff so there’s plenty there for me, and it honestly feels like a little village tucked away from London. There’s a simple way of gauging how good an area it is, and that’s how good are its transport links. The worse they are the better the area, and Greenwich is no exception.
I’ve been wanting to do a shoot here since I moved to London, but I never seemed to have the time or the right outfit. I finally said, screw it and done one and I’m really happy with the results.
The shoot was done at the Royal Observatory on top of a massive hill and the Queen’s House. They are both definitely worth a visit for any tourist coming to London, although I will recommend you don’t try and climb the hill in heels! It was a lesson I had to learn myself. 🙂
When I first spotted these trousers in Zara, I knew I had to have them! I’m not really one for wearing smart trousers; anyone who regularly reads my blog knows I’m firmly a dress and skirt kind of girl, but these are fab! They are so bright and clean that I knew I had to pair them with something bold too. The top I paired them with is an old one from H&M with the mesh panels, which surprisingly is back in fashion. You gotta love how cyclical fashion is.
I decided to go for a metallic finish to really accentuate the bold orange trousers. I’m loving the silver trend that’s so big for spring/summer 2014 and I wanted to do the trend in a way that’s more office-wear and daytime. I done another shoot at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, which I will post in a week or so, that does the metallic trend in an evening/party wear.
Getting a metallic clutch that was just clean lines and no added detail was actually quite hard to find, until I spotted this little baby in Primark. I love that it reflects everything and it reminds me a little bit of a disco ball.
The last photo I do love quite a bit. It’s quirky and fun and when I was first thinking up the outfit for the shoot the album cover for No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom came to mind and I had to take an orange with me to try out the idea. It worked quite well and the orange ended up being tasty treat for when the shoot was done. 🙂
