Camera skills, showing check scarf - Not doing the Highland Fling!

Hiya,

Not much to report today, other than showing you a few practise shots using camera, tripod and remote controller.  I know the old saying practise makes perfect is so true, but I'm so impatient I want to be capturing fabulous 'selfies' now!

Without further ado, here's today offerings, but bear in mind I'm still a novice and I'm no Cecil Beaton, come to think of it chuckle, chuckle I'm no Twiggy either - laughing very loudly now!!

Today had me running around in this,  Zara skinny jeans, these from the sale earlier on in the year - I paid roughly £15 for this dark blue block skinny.  They make a welcome change to the faded and distressed jeans that are my go to favourite picks.

The jumper is from Peacocks, I just needed a neutral coloured jumper for a previous weekend away, when I went canal boating with some friends, check out the post here to see how much fun I had "messing about on the River".  I love how this is such a relaxed looking jumper, with the slouch of the off the shoulder seam & box shape.
The gold beaded necklace is such a fabulous bold piece, I wear it often and always have someone say something nice about it. I received this from my sister-in-law - it's one of those pieces that is just so versatile.
Much coveted are my beige tassel boots!  I simply adore them - and yes you've seen these on many posts See here and here.  Tassels are everywhere, especially booties this season, if you've not already got some I suggest you head off now to grab yourself a pair - you wont be sorry!

Check these stunners from  Wallis, Dorothy Perkins, Asos and for a wide fit J D Williams
Paired with some skinnies a jumper and the obvious scarf you're good to go!





Trying hard not to look like an extra in Braveheart lol,  Here's the scarf in all it's glory.  I was drawn to the colour ways, I have to admit I do like 'boring' beige as It's sometimes called, but this is acceptable having got rust orange and blue alongside it.  I know it will go with loads I have already in my wardrobe.
I would have preferred a square style rather than the long rectangle, but as it was only £4 from Primark I figured it'll be worth it's money even if I only wore it a few times.  Anyway I can still look for a square option on my travels can't I??



I now look like I'm about to start dancing the Highland Fling!  Isn't it a lovely choice of scarf?





Are you favouring the check scarf?  Let me know what you think of my outfit, and If you'd like to hear more please subscribe up in the little box for up-to-date info on what I'm doing.  Loving you for that already!

Bye for today, enjoy Tuesday. X

  5. That's a good scarf, Jacqui! Congrats on such a great find! But I must warn you... This kind of scarves is pretty addictive, you buy it once and you can never stop with just one. :)))
