50 Shades Of Monochromatic Grey
These were the photos that I briefly mentioned on Snapchat yesterday. Like I said, we were shopping in Marks & Spencers and then all of a sudden it decided to rain so heavily that it was flooding down the road and we couldn’t leave the store. It was sunny beforehand, which is why we planned to shoot my photos just after the shopping, but that really was an epic fail! Since it was raining so hard and not due to stop after I checked the weather app, we decided that the only thing we could do was to find somewhere inside the store and shoot the photos there.
By the back entrance they have two flights of stairs which lead to the upper levels and Adam thought they would be really cool and different as a setting. It was extremely poor lighting so the original photos made me dark, orange with yellow hair. Thank goodness we shoot in raw though so I was able to edit the lighting to how they should look. I wasn’t overly fond of doing the photo inside and on some stairs with people staring at me all the time, but as it turned out, I think they look quite unique and different, so oddly enough I’m quite pleased with them.
For those of you wondering, yes, we did get completely soaked when we left, despite having umbrellas. My jeans were drenched, my New Balance which I had for walking were soaked through and it was just so bad. Normally I would be in wellies and a rain coat, but when you have to shoot outfit photos for the blog it’s not always possible. The things I have to go through for fashion blogging sometimes! Lol. It even ruined my new hair cut after, which you can see in these photos. Speaking of which, what do you think of it?
Anyway, getting to my outfit, I wore my J Brand Maria High Rise Skinny Jeans in Dove Grey which I absolutely adore. I know you have seen these numerous times, but they truly are the perfect grey! I then paired them with my new Vince Grey Ombre Sweater as I thought the greys would work harmoniously together. I then opted for my RAYE Grey Heels to add yet another shade of grey (Yep, I’m going for 50 shades here!) but as my Chloe Mini Drew Bag has a gold chain, it really didn’t go with this outfit, so I went for my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Love Bag in Black instead, which matches the top of the sweater. Normally when I wear neutrals and muted tones I like to have a pop of colour in there somewhere, but this time I decided a monochromatic look entirely would be better. I only chose a little hint of red with my lipstick. What do you think of my outfit and the location?
