It doesn't seem so long ago that I'd refuse to leave the house wearing anything but my super low-rise, super flared, super long Levis. When I first saw skinny jeans in Topshop, I remember thinking "I'm NEVER wearing THOSE". Of course these days the exact oppostite is true; if they're not high-waisted and ankle-baring, the chances are I won't wear them, which is why I am head over heels for these check trousers. I wasn't sure when they first arrived, but I'm so glad I decided to keep them. They'd be perfect for the office too, but seeing as I don't have an office to go to, I'll just continue pairing them with my leather jacket.
You may have noticed a difference in the quality of my photos - I have finally invested in a new lens for my little Nikon. I've had my camera for over a year now and I've slowly been learning more and more about it by playing around with the various knobs and switches (all technical terms here!) - I've even been experimenting with the manual mode. After a little research on one of those 'Cameras for Stupid People' websites and a lot of luck finding a good deal on ebay, I purchased a 50mm f/1.8 which has improved depth of field and lets SO much more light in - particularly good for dull winter afternoons! I'm having so much fun playing around with it, although my camera looks scarily professional wearing the new lens.
