Collar It Up

MANGO jumper, MONKI blouse, RIVER ISLAND jeans, H&M boots, MARC BY MARC JACOBS watch

My first outfitpost, EVER ! I had so much fun shooting this with one of my best friends. There is this amazing place in Utrecht, very close to my uni, which used to serve as a garden for the accompanying monastery (next to the Dom Tower). Now it is mainly a place where tourists come, but also a place where I like to go in the spring, to read a book or just enjoy the silence (even a city girl like me enjoys her peace once in a while!).
And actually, it was quite the spring scenery when we got there. The weather was beautiful (for once!) and the trees seemed to be confused: they were already blossoming. It resulted in some great shots. I still need to figure out the best lighting, poses and everything else, but I think I made quite a good start with these photographs.

We also shot another outfit (with in the background the beautiful canals of Utrecht) and those pictures came out so amazing as well (if I can say so myself!). I'll upload them soon for you.

Now on to the outfit. I think 4 (if not more) out of the 7 days in the week I wear something similar to this. I really should change it up some time haha. I love the combo of a large knit and my super skinny jeans. I changed it up a bit with the collar, which belongs to a beautiful sleeveless blouse from Monki I got in the sale (if you like it, it's still in some stores!). I don't think the look needs much jewellery, I'm just wearing my new watch, which you will probably see in every outfit picture. I just love it too much.

What do you think of my outfit? Any photography tips for this newbie?
