Engagement Photos

Oh hello! I haven’t blogged for one whole year and I wasn’t actually sure if I would come back to it. But in the past months I’ve been lucky enough to meet and be inspired by some fellow thrifty fashion lovers and just couldn’t resist the urge to talk about my op shopped outfits. So here I am!

Also I’m getting married next month and I’ve been meticulously planning all my wedding outfits (including my honeymoon wardrobe) for literally a whole year, so god knows I want to talk about them! Starting with this one, from our engagement photo shoot.

Our wonderful wedding photographers thought we should do a practice photo shoot before the big day, to make sure everyone (ahem, Luke) was comfortable in front of the camera. So we traipsed down to Fremantle on a blustery Saturday arvo and shot these pictures. I’ll be forever grateful for them.

It was incredibly challenging to choose an outfit for the shoot, I wanted to look casual, but also vaguely bridal. I wanted to match Luke, but not too matchy. I wanted to wear something that looked like ‘me’ and also I wanted it to be second hand… so I did make it a bit hard for myself! After trying on pretty much everything in my wardrobe twice, I landed on this white Camilla and Marc dress which I haven’t worn for ages because it needed to be ironed… it’s literally been sitting in my wardrobe for 3 years waiting for the day to come where I felt like ironing. Well, the day finally came!

Can we also just take a moment to appreciate how adorable Blue is?! Luke was so embarrassed to be having a photo shoot with our dog, but I insisted she come along and she ended up being the star of the show. Her little red bandana is just the cutest thing ever, I’m definitely going to keep any eye out for more when I’m op shopping!

I’m wearing:
Camilla and Marc dress, op shop
Vintage hat, Vinnies
Boots and socks, both so old I can’t remember where they are from!

Luke’s wearing:
Linen shirt, Vinnies $7
Leather boots, Vinnies $8
Jeans, Nobody denim

Blue’s wearing:
Red bandana, Salvos 0.50c  

All the photos are from WithU photography, they are an awesome husband and wife team who can make even the most reluctant subjects comfortable and happy. I’m so excited for them to shoot our wedding next month!
