Welcome to my ever dreamy world of flowers and lace, an ethereal land of dreams and perfect harmony. That’s a lie. A huge lie. The preconceived idea that bloggers don’t spend most of their day behind a computer editing, uploading, writing, organising their next shoot is amazing. The fact that viewers call bloggers ‘lucky’ to have this or that opportunity is beyond me. Call me a pessimist but I don’t believe in luck. Nothing you ever want in this world isn’t going to be given to you (unless you’re apart of the few via natural selection to indeed, literally, have things given to you) and you have to work to achieve your goals. This isn’t news to you though.
And I’m not angry, I’m just ranting. I am looking at this series of photos thinking ‘My God, I hope people don’t think I just walk around all day in lace and stilettos eating brunch and take photos of flowers”. I just don’t think I’d get any views if you saw me in my black tee, black jeans, black boots day after day.
In saying this – I do love this look, if I didn’t have to walk up a big hill to get to work I’d wear shoes like this more often. And if I didn’t have a fear in wearing the same dress more than a couple times I’d wear this Keepsake one everyday. I love white. I love white lace. There’s nothing sexier (unless it’s black lace).
