New Season Styling

Hey guys! I want to start this post with a big apology for my lack of posts recently. I've had a serious case of writer's block (it happens to us all) and have been SO busy getting organised to move into my very first house next week which I'm sure you'll know if you follow my snapchat (@kayljcouture). My days have consisted of boxing up my whole life, having major clear outs and looking at homeware online. I can't wait to get in there now - keep your eyes peeled for some homeware hauls and interior posts coming very soon!

Anyway, back to the point of this post. I recently met up with my lovely friend and fellow blogger Lucy (@lradwell) in London to shoot some outfits and also head to the Lipsy X Michelle Keegan launch party which was AMAZING by the way. Anyway, I wanted to share one of the outfits we shot on the day as I'm really happy with how these images turned out. I've finally cracked shooting on manual with my Canon 600D and it's crazy the difference it actually makes. I love that I can now adjust the lighting etc to get the style of photo I want, rather that hoping for the best.

I recently featured this suede lace up skirt from Miss Pap in a blog post (see post here) and since then I've gone on to get it in another two colours, the latest being this lovely pale grey one! Yep, the obsession is real. I just love how easy it is to wear and that it can be dressed up or down, not to mention it is ridiculously comfortable thanks to the soft faux suede fabric. Style and comfort in one? Yes please!

As the skirt has the lovely lace up detailing down the front, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit fairly simple with an old high neck black cropped top (similar online here) and some black ankle boots which are also from Miss Pap. I love the style of these boots as they look great with skirts or skinny jeans (I believe they're 'sock' boots - correct me if I'm wrong) and I know I'll get loads of wear out of them. 

To finish the look, I wore my new favourite shades (get them here) and a cute little Missguided bag with chain detail that reminds me of the Stella McCartney design. Who doesn't love a cheap designer alternative?! 

I hope you like this look and I promise I'll be back with more posts as soon as I'm all settled in my new house and everything has calmed down a little.
