Creative Spaces

As regular blog readers will know, my boyfriend Ben is a musician. We’re living together with my parents at the moment whilst we get ourselves sorted to get a place of our own, and being in someone else’s home makes it difficult to keep up with a somewhat noisy (even if it is lovely noise) hobby! A couple of month’s ago now Ben and his best friend found a little studio space in Bristol, cheap…but in dire need of renovating. Ben decided to take charge and last weekend I went off to see the finished product, having been involved a little during the process I was desperate to see how it had all turned out. I used the opportunity to get some outfit photos too, making the most both the creative and calming interior as well as the urban exterior setting.

Dress: Jolie Moi | Camera Bag: New Look | Sandals: H&M | Sunglasses: Rayban

This outfit consists of some real favourite pieces; I was sent the dress a couple of years ago now and I always get compliments when I wear it. The minty green colour is very “now” and the sail boat print adds a nautical edge, which pairs perfectly with my new navy and cream striped camera bag. I’ve been after one of these ever since getting my camera and couldn’t find one I liked- most were just so bulky! This one was a bargain at £12.99 from New Look (I’ve linked it above) and also comes in a sweet floral print too. It’s lightweight but protective and fits my Canon 1100D perfectly.
The sandals I’m wearing are one of the only flat pairs I own that don’t butcher my feet, bought from H&M three summers ago for £14.99 they really don’t owe me any favours and yet they still keep on going! These photos were taken when the hot weather first started, and shortly after this when we were on the way to a 6 year olds birthday party (armed with a remote control car or two) we got utterly drenched in a sudden downpour. Oh England.
Let me know if you’d like to see some real before and after shots of the studio, it’s had quite the makeover I can tell you! I has such a calm and creative atmosphere and I shall be taking my laptop and blogging from there sometimes as it’s also located in one of my favourite parts of the city. Ben will be teaching guitar lessons from there too, so if anyone fancies learning then give us a shout!

  2. That camera bag is awesome, I’d never have though of looking in New Look for one! I love that dress on you too, you look lovely.

    The weather is driving me mad – its so hot and muggy up here but cloudy and dull at the same time?! Urgh!
