OOTD | Winter florals & velvet leggings

Full length outfit post | Velvet cropped leggings | #fbloggers | winter floral shirt

This shirt from Ark has been hanging on my door frame for a few days now, as initially I was unsure what to wear it with. It's a really gorgeous print and I love the pastel hues on black, plus I reckon it's a bit of a dream team with these cropped velvet trousers from ASOS Marketplace!

I do want to get braver with my outfit shot locations (it's been a resolution for years, I know). These were taken in Nottingham yesterday but I still squirm when someone else comes past. Maybe I dread the "uhh, what are you doing?" or maybe it's just the fear of being stared at. On the upside, I did find some lovely places to snap, so who knows?

Today I took Liam out running with me for the first time! It was something I really got into last year, but I do not enjoy being beeped at by weird van drivers - so my tactic is to go with a guy so I'm less likely to be shouted at. Do any of you have this problem when running? I've never understood it - I get more "attention" when I look a sweaty mess than when I've actually made an effort on a night out. Baffling.

  12. You definitely get used to the random attention you get when taking snaps outside haha! That blouse is so sweet, I can imagine it also looking cute undone and worn over a tank/some denim shorts in the summer.
