Fun at the Fountain

Who knew how much fashion-styling-fun could be had at an old disused fountain, in the park where I spent many a day throughout my childhood. Did anyone spot the little bird who just happened coincidentally to fly and land into my shot, in the picture above? So cute!

Here is the second look using the maxi dress from the £50 Challenge accessorised with my Perfect Court Shoes and ever-faithful classic Chanel handbag. I believe lengths and proportion are so important in styling an outfit. A cropped jacket with a maxi length, somehow just works, especially with the colour blocking of the empire line dress. I am especially fond of these Pura Lopez shoes, I love the simple detail at the front of what would otherwise be quite a basic court shoe.

Your dad is a fantastic photographer. I was wondering if you could show us how you do your hair. I love a bun so high but don't know how to get it to stay up. Please share your secret :)
