Photos by Wonderfulife Productions
“It’s not what you look at that matters. It’s what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau
You many have seen on my Instagram (@retroflame) that I was shooting a video at my house in Kerry earlier this week. The amazing Wonderfulife Productions team made the trip from Galway to shoot a video which I’ve been planning for so long now and I just can’t wait to see the end result. After we were finished the video part, Julia & I very quickly shot the outfit I was wearing that day and I’m so in love with how the shots turned out! How beautiful are those flowers? We took the photos at my Aunts house, where I’ve shot several time before (See one post Here) but I think it was the the addition of the flowers + Julia’s impeccable eye for detail that brought a whole new perspective to this beautiful location which I very often take for granted. I’ve only ever shot with Julia in Galway, so it was great to finally be able to take some photos with her here in Kerry and I think it has really made realise that I need to appreciate the beautiful landscape which surrounds me every day.
As I’ve been wearing a lot of pastels lately, I decided to for something a little more edgy when choosing Tuesday’s outfit. I recently came across an online store called the Highstreet Outlet which stock pieces from Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Zara & more – at a fraction of the price. All the stock is factory surplus, in perfect condition and it’s honestly such a little gem of a store. The Topshop Sequins Top and Miss Selfridge Leather Jacket that I’m wearing here are both from this store and I’m so happy with both of them. I’m also currently loving my new Yves Saint Laurent Sunglasses from Pretavoir. The chain detail is just perfect! I can’t wait to mix and match all these new pieces into some more outfits over the next few weeks.
Hope you’ve all been having a lovely week!
