Things have been quite hectic of late, and I've been working hard each day to stay on top of things, while pursuing my fashion dreams. Sometimes I wish I could dedicate all my time to fashion and lead a truly artistic life, but it's essential to get the everyday tasks done too, which are a requirement for everything else. And I don't think I would appreciate fashion as much as I do, if it weren't for those other things, which give me a sense of balance and perspective, and keep me grounded and grateful.
These pictures are the first ones I took after becoming the proud owner of a semi-professional camera for the first time, in August last year. I was waiting for the weather to warm up before posting the images to my blog. I will wear this outfit often over the coming months, with a variation of necklace and handbag sometimes. Those of you who've visited my blog before may recall the leopard-print top from my birthday post in January, where it was styled with a dramatic vintage necklace and fitted blazer. That was one of my favourite looks, but this is the way I wear it most often, with a necklace made from black crochet material which I love.
(This post was originally going to be called 'Where the Wild Things Are', but then I decided on 'Wild at Heart' instead, which is also the name of one of David Lynch's best and most atmospheric films in my view.)
