Twirling Your Blue Skirts, Following The Sward

Sometimes it's very hard for me to figure out what to write here. I suppose that it was happens when you record and post your outfit 5 days a week for nearly 4 years--you run out of topics. Everything I start to write seems to repetitive. Shall I ramble about the weather or my obsession with blue which has surged forth once again this spring? And what is there to say about the clothes when they're all pieces I've worn a number of times before?
Oh well, I hope you enjoy the pictures. A tourist (these were taken on top of the moat) walked up while I was snapping them and offered to take my pictures for me. I politely declined and then fiddled with my camera awkwardly until he wandered off. I know my method of running back and forth for the self-timer looks odd, but I've become so used to the process that I can't imagine it any other way. I also don't fancy the notion of posing for a stranger.

That dress is beyond pretty. I really adore the bird print. And those wedges are like the cherry on top on such a perfect spring outfit.

I have just started doing outfit posts and I take me own pictures, I think I would feel too self conscious if someone else were taking it. Which is strange since I then put the pictures on my blog for the world to see lol!

Don't worry. Some of us have just recently become fortunate to stumble upon fabulous blogs like this. Those of us have not yet seen all the outfits or read all the posts. I just started my own blog too (http://franniepantz.blogspot.com if you are interested) and use a tripod. That self timer thing takes a lot of getting used to. Regardless, you look amazing as usual and glad you are enjoying the Picasso era of the spring!

I know exactly what you mean about the self-time thing! - I had to model for my friend for her Media project - most awkward photoshoot of my life, in the end I told her to leave the camera, I would take the pics and give it her back the next day - I could never be a model. Don't know how they do it without feeling self concious!

My friends and I grew up taking pics of each other for fun so I guess I got used to posing for people. I have a lot of trouble when my designated photographer isn't around! I really need to practice with my tripod. Tips on taking your own pics would be much appreciated! I'm curious!

I love that coat. Every time you wear it, it makes me smile :)

And I don't blame you. That would have been rather awkward. Posing for a total stranger...weird.

that dress fits you so well!

Adorable dress! and you are never boring and repetitive!

It is SO much easier to pose for a tripod than for an actual person. I am more comfortable around my husband than anyone else, ever, yet the minute he steps behind the camera I become all awkward and nervous, and my poses reflect that. I much prefer to be alone with my camera.
I definitely relate to your blogger's block- one can only say so much about where items were purchased or how they were combined... sometimes letting the photos speak for themselves is a nice change of pace.
Lovely colors on you, given your skin tone and hair color. And you always choose such interesting prints and silhouettes!

That dress is 100% reminiscent of Sandra Beijer's style (niotillfem).

:)

Basically, lovely.

I have the same trouble...sometimes it's best to let the pictures speak for themselves, and yours are always so lovely.

Stef / Diversions said...

You look lovely :)

Your helpful stranger story just left me doing an embarrassing snort because that is EXACTLY how I react to such sweet offers, flustered no thank you, thank you very much though and lots of camera knob twisting. :)

Meesh said...

I love this dress.

Argh, I hate when people come up and watch what you're doing out taking photos. It's like a sudden wave of self consciousness descends. I have the opposite problem as you with taking pictures, though; the self timer and me, we are not friends. Why is the time so short? Why does it take 7 photos instead of a more reasonable number? I may never know.

Julia Topaz said...

Oh my goodness, that is precisely why I try to avoid shooting in public alone! I've always admired the bravery of the girls who do, but I'm far to self conscious to set up a tripod just on the sidewalk or wherever else and start posing away! Well done, brave Rebecca of The Clothes Horse.

It's always a good opportunity to talk about you, or what you've been up to today, or just thoughts?
But I'm glad you mentioned the blue infatuation - I'm having my own obsession with it! Except I'm going into winter, which means I'm soon going to troll some archives for inspiration and a chin up approach to frozen tentacles. Look at those bare legs =O

I love your strawberry wedges! They look so cheery against the blue ASOS dress.

Melissa said...

I saw that dress browsing ASOS the other day and fell in love. It is such a wonderful piece!! The red heels go very nicely with it.

The Daily Fashionista said...

What a sweet but odd gesture. I would've politely declined too. I'm not too keen on having my own mother do my photos, let alone a stranger:) hehe.. And I really love that dress. It's such a fabulous shape!

Melis said...

i want that coat AND that dress! :)

Ashe @ Dramatis Personae said...

That blue dress is perfection. Why can't ASOS have THAT in the Curve line?!

annah. said...

you could talk about how bloody great those shoes are!! Oh, and I hate being accidentally caught...it feels like you're doing something SO vain and embarrassing...I was jumping for some photos today and then realised a couple were standing there laughing at me...cringe cringe cringe!

Sarah said...

Randomly reading back through old bloggers posts as I've missed so much lately! I take my own outfit pics too, I hate other people photographing me, I feel so self-conscious! I use a remote though, it makes it SO much easier and they're so inexpensive!

Lovely outfit though - adore that dress!
