Big Ben meets Small Amy

And here we have it, the second of my looks shot with the amazing Amber-Rose. Being in London, we decided we needed to squeeze in at least one iconic background, and not much epitomises all things British like Big Ben (aside from a busy tube with lots of fast-paced angry people in the background, but apparently that doesn't make for ideal shooting conditions). I went for a pretty casual outfit, based entirely around my desperation to take my new kimono for a spin. I do love a good kimono, and the print and colour of this one caught my eye enough to shake me from my 'I will only buy black things' stupor. It didn't shake me enough to stop me from pairing it with an all black outfit but... baby steps.

Today I'm having the laziest of lazy mornings catching up on OITNB because I STILL haven't finished series 3 (what's wrong with me, I know) before trying very, very hard to drag my ass to the gym. Pray for me.

You're a styling genius, I have to say. By seeing this printed kimono, I never thought it could look awesome with leopard print, and it does, it's beautiful !
