I haven’t posted a style shoot in a while. It’s been a hectic one over the past couple of months for sure, but I found this little shoot I did with the awesome Sitakesphotos off-the-cuff during LCM in June. Si came to say hi, with his camera of course, and we wandered around some of the side streets of Temple, London.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Si. Style shoots honestly take me out of my comfort zone. Putting myself in front of the camera is a relatively new experience for me (apart from Instagram-loving selfies, natch). I’m fine from the shoulders up, or even talking to camera for YouTube, but posing in front of the camera showcases my awkward-AF-ness in all it’s glory. Definitely some posing practice needed!

I’ve found myself buying a lot more high-street brands recently to refresh my wardrobe. Surprisingly I don’t buy as man clothes as you’d think, I prefer to invest long-term in core pieces that work together. But with my training at the gym I’ve put on a lot of size as I build up, so I’ve been quickly outgrowing all of my wardrobe. The affordability of the high-street means I can add in new colours and styles quickly without damaging the bank balance.

Should you double denim?

I do love me some denim and I’m not afraid of a double hit either. Pairing black with blue is an easier option for those who are worried about B*witched-vibes though. This is a go-to everyday look for me; easy, comfortable but it still looks pulled together and I’m also in love with my new Hudson boots. It’s a really simple and unfussy look, which I’m all about. Anyone can work this style and if you want to change it up for something even more casual, swap the boots for white trainers and the top for a white tee and you’re good to go.

What’s your go-to look when you need to look like you’ve made the effort (without having actually tried)?
