Happy Sunday! Today is my birthday…which means it’s time for the annual cringefest of birthday bloopers! After a very busy week I’ve escaped to France for some sunshine and relaxation. Waking up in a hotel near Stansted after four hours sleep wasn’t the best start to my birthday, but spending the rest of the day with a nice glass (or two) of red in the French countryside makes it all worthwhile, especially as I get to spend time with my Dad 🙂
Whenever I wear a hat I like to do photos with and without it. Somehow I always get caught taking it off or putting it on. (I like to take the photos without the hat first so I don’t have “hat hair”). You can see the full post here.
It looks like I’ve fallen asleep standing up here…surely I couldn’t have been that tired. Then again, it’s quite possible. See more photos of this fabulous Scotch and Soda suit (where I’m looking more awake!) here.
I’m not keen on showing my midriff, so whenever I wear cropped tops I’m constantly fiddling and pulling them down. I love this pink and lilac combination though, which I wore for our Style Not Age April post.
I don’t know whether I’m snarling at the photographer (that’s my husband!) or I’ve got an itch that I urgently need to scratch. Either way, it’s not the most flattering expression. At least the Zara mustard co-ord looks good though!
I’m looking at that cardigan like it offends me, but in reality I was wondering what to do with it. In the end I hung it on a tree. Isobel’s snap happy approach to taking blog photos ensure she captures every awkward transition shot! You can see the Stylish Monday Summer Whites post here.
This photo’s fine until you scroll down to my feet. Goodness knows what I was doing…probably trying desperately not to sink into the grass! It happens a lot. See more of this Finery shirt dress and beautiful Calla sandals here.
A quick photo shoot during a break from work…complete with my security pass! We’d taken about half a dozen photos before either of us realised. See more of this Zebra print dress here.
No I haven’t got dandruff! Just me fiddling again. See the original post featuring this fabulous Fabienne Chapot hot pink hat here.
Trying not to sink into the grass again while taking photos for the Stylish Monday Seven Shades of Green March post. It also looks as though I’m about to curtsy…maybe to the photographer. Actually, I think I’m adjusting my trousers – I wasn’t happy with how my shirt looked tucked in and the belt wouldn’t stay put.
I’m probably trying to explain to Isobel exactly what shot I want here and she caught me looking half asleep. This Match Made in Seven Ode to Iris Apfel post was so much fun to shoot though, even if it doesn’t show on my face…
…unlike with this photo where I’m pretty sure either Pete or Isobel were trying to make me laugh. She likes to pull faces through the window at me – very fitting for the Style Not Age March Madness post!
Henry definitely approved of the Style Not Age Wild About Animal Print theme for August. Maybe it was the cute cat bag 🙂
But this has to be the ultimate photo bomb! This little lady loves to get in on the action (much like Henry) one way or another. We did take some proper photos of us both to celebrate Isobel’s 10th birthday, but she does like to bomb my solo snaps too!
