Although I could probably walk it, I decided to bring my car along for her first topless photoshoot following her brief (but expensive) sojourn at the de-roofers. At least half the point of owning a convertible (and putting up with its periodic refusals to disrobe and winter-long indoor monsoons) is, surely, to avail yourself of the opportunity to channel Marilyn/Audrey/Grace/Jackie in a vintage style headscarf/cat eye sunnies combo whilst enjoying the sounds of The Beatles c.1963! Or is that just me...? Of course, this £4 china print Primark beauty also significantly reduces the occupational hazard of topless driving that is The Bridget Jones Bird's Nest... I really could have done with finding one a year or two ago!! (Oh, and if you fancy testing its paces as a top/skirt/shawl/tablecloth - OK, maybe not the last one - don't forget to check out my post on 5 Ways to Wear a Printed Scarf.)
Outdoor photography has proven to be a damn sight trickier than I expected, accustomed as I have become to the (relatively) predictable behaviour of the light from my bedroom window/wall fittings - got some experimentation and boning up on camera settings to do for sure, but I love the quality of these shots and think I'll definitely be venturing out again very soon (though perhaps not sans top).
