A Golden Hour Photoshoot In The Snow
Happy Monday everyone! The days just seem to fly by and we’ve already gone mid way through February, it’s madness. As I mentioned in my previous Valentine’s Day outfit, Adam and I had simple and easy plans to celebrate, and that’s what we did. As always with me though, it didn’t turn out quite as we hoped, ha ha. I had woken up with a migraine so had to take Nurofen Plus, which gives me stomach ache. We were almost late to our booking at Cosy Club, the food had issues as the waitress had tipped my chips all over the table and in my drink, then the mayonnaise was full of water. It was quite awkward, but oddly the food this time gave us both stomach ache, which doesn’t usually happen, so walking around town to walk that off was interesting, then my headache started coming back so I needed more Nurofen.
We headed into a few shops, went to Swoon the gelato shop like we wanted, browsed the furniture, then went to the pet shop to get some nuts, however the pet shop was not there… Apparently it’s closed now, so we were walking about trying to get nuts to feed the animals at the park. We eventually found some, and then arrived at the park near dusk so almost all the animals had gone to bed, ha ha. We managed to see two squirrels though and a couple of magpies, but we scattered some nuts all around anyway for the morning when they wake up. By the evening at home, my head was so bad I had to have my sleep mask on to avoid any light so we didn’t get to watch Letters To Juliet like we wanted, so had to save it for the next day, after working and doing photoshoots. Besides all this, I still had a lovely day and spending quality time with Adam is ideal, without any work to be done. I feel like we should make it more of a regular thing!
I also realised that having fun is all in the mindset. In years past I would have been so upset about everything going wrong that I would have thought it ruined the entire day, but as I am now, I don’t let things put a dampener on my day. Yes many things went wrong, yes my head and stomach hurt a lot, but it doesn’t detract anything away from the overall point of the day, so if that’s one tip I can pass on to you, find the positive in any bad situation and don’t dwell on it. More negativity in your mind only makes things worse from then on out. I could look at everything that happened as an awful let down, ruining the day, but I’m alive, we still did pretty much most of the things we wanted, I spent all the time with Adam, didn’t have to work etc. so it’s a positive to me!
Anyway, enough of that, I’m sure you’re here for the outfit, so what I was wearing was my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite (told you I live in these!) with my Topshop Grey Cropped Jumper, an ASOS Western Belt, my Pretty Little Thing Grey Cardigan, and my Rockfish Navy Gloss Wellies. I didn’t really want to have the wellies with this outfit as the look is quite edgy and dressy at the same time, but because of the snow, I was mostly wearing them the entire time so I thought I would keep it natural and do a couple of full length shots as well so you can see the look entirely. I actually liked it quite a lot with the wellies to be honest, it was different and unique, plus I think the navy complemented the subtle blue tones in the greys!
Of course we shot these photos when it was snowing a few weeks ago and the sun was setting through the trees so there was the most gorgeous orange sunset coming through, highlighting me. It wasn’t intentional actually either, I’d just wanted to do the photos there and the sun started to glow, so that was a serious stroke of luck! After taking them, Adam wanted to do his there but unfortunately it had set so the glow had gone, you literally only get a few minutes of that golden hour! I know this may not be the most sensible outfit for snow, but much like my Sequins In The Snow blog post, I love wearing contrasting looks against such a Wintry background. Anyway, this blog post is getting rather long so please do let me know what you think of the outfit and the photos! Lorna xx.
