Look #1: Iris & Ink stripe top (similar here & here) | ASOS checked skirt (midi length here) | ASOS pink textured coat (yellow version here) | Topshop black heels (similar here, low heel here) | Claire Aristides heart bracelet | Jolie & Deen triple bar ring | Katie Dean feather wrap ring

Look #2: ASOS baby blue high neck top (watermelon here, white here, black here) | Jolie & Deen wrap skirt (similar here) | Zara yellow checked coat | Olivia Burton black big dial watch (similar styles here) | Kat Maconie heels.

***

Here’s an expression you probably won’t see all too often over here. So I don’t know why, but my gorgeous friend Yohan thought I’d be the perfect candidate for a moody city shoot. I had a few pieces in my wardrobe that I thought would be perfect to style up for this – graphic patterns and prints which clashed and contrasted in a minimalist sort of way. But no smiling, she warned (aw Yohan, but that’s my forte)! If you’ve been around here for a while you’ll probably notice it’s the first time I’ve done anything like this. There was a lot of laughing behind the scenes and I basically was smiling inside despite the extremely serious expression plastered on my face. But it was a blast to shoot and work with fellow creatives and I most certainly learnt something new. I’m certainly more approachable in real life than I look here, that’s for sure :-)

Hope you guys enjoy this little editorial series!

    This was great! I love it. I would be so sad if you stopped smiling all together, but you should totally try out editorial shoots more. You look awesome in this. Great styling too, by the way!

    I was looking at your expression and I was thinking, goodness. So edgy and moody. I thought this was going to be your new approach! It’s not terrible but it definitely didn’t feel like it was you Connie! I guess it was fun to play around and experiment. And looked like you must have had lots of fun being the model of that shoot too!

    Wow! I almost didn’t recognize you! These photos look amazing nonetheless. I like how you were honest about it all, it does feel a little weird to pose in front of the camera in a different personality. As long as the pictures turn out great, that’s all that matters :) Great mis of prints and colors! Always love your style! – Stacey <3

      Haha it definitely feels weird, and it feels even weirder looking back at the photos, I don’t think I ever make such a face at the camera but it was so much fun! Would gladly do it again.. if I am capable of reproducing such an expression!

    Very hip 90s inspired looks, I love the Clueless feel I get from them. I love this shoot, its a refreshing change to your usual shots, and everything in your outfit is impeccable to every last detail; the watch, your lipstick and the delicate rings, wonderful post!

    Woah, woah, woah! Absolutely drop dead gorgeous! I’m with you that I definitely prefer injecting my personality into a shoot and smiling like crazy, but I must say, even without the massive smile, your personality still shines through.

    Truly beautiful photography and styling (as always!).
