Shall we just look at the clothes not the object

by Anna Nuttall

There is time when I do an outfit post I just cannot get it right – and this is the perfect example of me just not getting it right.  When I do an outfit I usually drag Richard in it with me, well he is a professional photographer after all so it would be silly not to drag him into it. I’d be posing in my various clothes and he be the one who would sort out the camera side of it and making sure everything is looking great, after all an outfit photo shoot is a two-way street where we are able to work together.

Well that what usually what happen, not in this instant! He has been really busy and often away on business so doesn’t have the time to help me with an outfit of the day post so it falls to me on doing it.

I wanted to show you some bargain New Look playsuit I picked up for £10 each, which I was very pleased with as I promise myself that this summer I would buy some new playsuit. They look so summary and bohemian It’d be foolish not to buy them and for £10 each – it’s a bloody bargain if you ask me.

Seriously what going on with my eyes? As I’ve mentioned before during the summer months when the sun is so bright I find myself not able to see a thing. Well I can see but I be squinting my eyes and shielding the light with my hand the whole time.  This is why usually my sunglasses are firmly stuck on my head so I can actually see.  When I was taking these photos I didn’t think it was that bright and the sunlight would affect me; these photos show it does and I look like I’m half-asleep, oh dear. 

And for the love of god  – smile woman! I look like I’m doing a Victoria Beckham I-will-not-smile-ever-in-my-life-frown where everything is all serious. I’m a very serious blogger doing a very serious outfit post. I thought I was smiling in these photos, but maybe I was doing a Mona Lisa silence smile.

One last thing, you can see me with my camera remote control in these photos. When I’m left to do an outfit post on my own I have to set up the camera on a tripod and connect the remote control for the camera. It isn’t tricky – it can just be daunting to face a camera instead of a smiling photographer.

Anyway enough of me picking me apart with these photos, let just look at the clothes. Because after all that was the original point of this post. Personally I love them and I can see myself wearing them for the remaining part of summer, especially if I go to the beach or a festival. For a girl who doesn’t like summer, I do find myself loving summer clothes. It just nice for a few months in a year no to wear layer upon layer of clothes. My only advice would be to wear a strapless bra with these playsuit.

So what are your thoughts on these playsuit?

They look comfy….and taking pictures of yourself is so difficult. Those are perfect for this hot summer weather.

The playsuits look good on you, forget about these pictures! I need a hundred to find one good one of me! I do like the playsuits from New Look and despite having long legs, after 4 kids, I am too conscious of the veins! So I stick with palazzos in the summer! You go wear them for me! xx

£10 each is a bargain and they look fab. I wish I could wear them but they make me look pregnant. The photo’s look great BTW

I really want to get my hands on a playsuit this summer! I think there’s so much pressure to look ‘right’ in blog photos that people do get distracted from the clothes themselves. Hopefully this post will be a reminder to them!

I love the clothes!! I live in the desert southwest where we have sunshine 300+ days of the year, and summer starts in April and doesn’t leave until the end of October! I actually wear my summer clothes out and have to buy new ones for next year!! These are terrific for you. They’ll be comfortable and easy to care for. My only comment is this: SMILE!!

You look amazing and those playsuits are so lovely – I think we can all be overly critical of our own photos. x

The clothes look really comfy and they are perfect for the warm weather too, especially if you’re going out for the day. I love the blue one the most! It’s more of my color.

Love the outfits. It looks like you could really relax in it.

CtryMouseCitySpouse 4th July 2016 - 3:12 pm

I love both of these! I do think that I like the second outfit better on you.. it seems to flatter your skin tone better with the colors. Great choices. And they look so comfy!

mail4rosey 4th July 2016 - 3:46 pm

Oh I’d get ’em all too. Nice price and they look stylish and comfortable too.

Liz Mays 4th July 2016 - 6:41 pm

Both of the rompers are really cute, and I’m with you on the Bohemian look. It’s super fun!

I think you did a great job with these pictures. I like all these. I love the fresh look and the designs.

I think they are great summer outfits! I, like you, don’t take many pics of myself either, but I think you look great in these!

Chrishelle Ebner 5th July 2016 - 2:57 am

We can be our own worst critics. You look summery, and beautiful. Stop being so hard on yourself.

Doran 5th July 2016 - 7:08 am

Cute rompers! I am amazed you took the pictures yourself. I should look into that and save myself some $$$ on photographers fees.

CourtneyLynne Storms 5th July 2016 - 4:22 pm

Oooo fabulous rompers! Rompers are my obsession at the moment. They are so chic!
