So I’m new to this whole blogging thing, sure I have taken many ‘outfit of the day’ photos alone, in my room in front of the mirror, but this is the first time I’ve had someone else take them outside in public! Can’t say I wasn’t nervous but I tried my best. The only reason these photos turned out so well is because of my boyfriend’s talent with a camera, gotta give credit where credit is due.
The weather here in Dubai is really heating up. We took these photos last week, but actually had to wait till sunset, well almost, as I wouldn’t have been able to bear the heat outside had we decided to do the shoot anytime earlier that day! Little old Irish me is not built for desert heat and definitely not in jeans!!
To be honest, I haven’t actually wore these jeans in a social setting yet for the mighty fear of food stains. I might take one bite from something and next thing I’m covered in it, that would be my luck! I bought these jeans with the intention of wearing them while I’m backpacking through Europe this summer. There’s just something so crisp and clean about a pair of (unstained) white jeans! I paired the jeans with a very ‘on-trend’ off the shoulder top. This is a trend I’m unsure I want to commit to! I wore this top to a party recently and when I threw my hands in the air (like I just don’t care) the top would come popping up and I’d have to adjust it again and again. It was getting in the way of my boogie time! On the other hand, I can imagine myself wearing this top strolling through beautiful Greek islands…which is why I picked it up in the first place.
The jeans and top were actually both on sale in Splash and were an absolute bargain! I threw on my trusty old converse, and carrying my old stradivarius purse. To finish the look I added some jewellery I picked up on my travels.
Hope you’re having a lovely week and thank you for reading. Have you found any gems in Splash? What’s your favourite cheap high street store? Let me know in the comments!
