It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a OG outfit post on here hasn’t it. It’s been such a strange and crazy few months, it’s really been such a whole rollercoaster of emotions and to be honest I’ve mostly been feeling quite lost and lonely. My motivation has gone out the window and I just feel a bit flat and empty about everything. I’ve felt like I’ve just withdrawn and not wanted to share how I feel or what I’m doing. The flat has constantly been a mess and looking like a vintage shop exploded in it (which technically it had as we had to shut the shop) there’s been so much stress with that side of things behind the scenes that it’s really taken a toll on me mentally.
The weather has also wildly affected my mood, if it’s sunny everything looks a little brighter and I feel an instant mood lift, but if it’s rainy or cold my mood instantly drops and I just want to crawl back to bed and not do anything. I’ve really been struggling. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. The one thing that has really helped me was the fact I could finally shoot outside again-I’ve really been missing that feeling of being excited to create creative content outside of the walls of my flat.
So onto this dress. Actually first, aren’t daisies just an instant mood lifter? This day was so warm and sunny and it was so good to be outside shooting. I just love the lilac with the daisies, they just go so well together. This lilac wrap dress is by a new sustainable brand called Omnes. They’re a new and affordable clothing line that creates beautiful clothing that is considerate to the planet too. And this dress is just so lovely in real life too. They only use quality fabrics that are grown, sourced and manufactured responsibly, and they use digital textile printing (which saved over 40 billion litres of water in 2019) Their whole collection is just lovely, timeless classic staple wardrobe pieces and there’s something for everyone. you can view the whole collection here, I just love the lilac skirt in the same print as the dress. I’m so excited to see more from this brand ! And I’ve become a complete lilac convert too. You can read more about their sustainability here.
