She's a Rebel




I was so worried about these photos. I really liked this outfit and I just thought it deserved to be shot outside. It's getting warmer here, it was only -4 Celsius today so I decided to brave it. There's so much pressure taking pictures outside- you have to hope you managed to take enough good ones before you get too cold!! I'm really happy with these pictures. I'm sorry I didn't move around too much- my tripod gets so cold because it's metal! I'm glad I got a chance to go outside again though. I may have to just start being brave!!





I am so happy with this dress. I know I've worn it quite a few times lately (here, here and here), but it is such a versatile piece. I love the girly lace and the long sleeves. It's really fun to take it in the complete opposite direction and toughen it up a little bit, which was what I tried to do here with the military jacket, but I wanted to keep it girly and feminine with the knee socks and brogues. I'm really looking forward to trying it with a leather jacket and ankle boots or to go completely the other way, a girly cardigan and nude flats.

I absolutely love River Island's over-the-knee socks. They are just so cosy and they do actually go over-the-knee. I think they are much more flattering than ones that just hit the knee. I have these socks in black, grey and beige now. I can't wait until it gets a little bit warmer and I can wear knee socks more. I love black opaques but they get so boring in the winter because they're all I ever seem to wear!!



Sorry for another really photo-heavy post. I promise I will start cutting it down to less than 10 pictures- I was just really happy with these and really glad I went outside to take them, despite it still being a bit chilly. You can definitely see my remote in quite a lot of them though- I need to find out what people do to disguise their remotes!! I have really small hands so I can never keep it concealed!! I know, just ruining the illusion, aren't I?


Hope you have plans for a lovely weekend!! I'll be back tomorrow.

  1. I love your outfit the lace dress is so pretty. It looks so cold though! I'd never be able to go outside without being completely bundled up!

  4. Love this outfit Charlotte - you look great (I love military inspired pieces!) It is hard taking outdoor shots in the winter - it's so cold! Even though it doesn't get snowy where I am, it does get really, really cold (a dry cold too, which is awful!) so it's hard to find the motivation! So bravo to you. :]]]
