How amazing are these photos from f8 creative?? My photographer Chris and I set out to find some locations to shoot at last week and luckily a colleague of mine allowed us to use his house as a backdrop. You'll see more of where we shot photos throughout the next two weeks, but my goodness the grounds around this house are absolutely breathtaking. Chris is an amazing photographer, as is the rest of the f8 crew, so be sure to check out their site (also linked below!). 

As for this dress, I'm quite impressed by the length and feel of it. I typically expect shorter hemlines from H&M, however they've recently come out with longer skirts, conservative dresses and work-appropriate pieces. Sure they've always had pieces like those, but the quality of the clothing has gone up a notch (in my opinion). I definitely like to mix my investment pieces with more affordable pieces, and I think by doing that, the investment pieces add more value towards your affordable ones. Plus by saving my money on more affordable pieces, I can save up for investments that I'll keep forever! 

Thanks for stopping by...

  4. I've found the same phenomenon at F21---the clothes have gotten classier and the bags are more structured nowadays. I can only approve!
