Not Dressed As Lamb Dices With Death In A Floral Skirt (& There’s A Video Too)

Floral skirt & blue tank
Not only am I sharing some pictures taken in the beautiful light at the top of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, but I’m sharing my first ever video. Yes, I’ve finally got round to making a video…! It’s only 30 seconds long, but it’s quite amusing – you have free reign to laugh at my irrational fear of heights.

As far as the outfit goes – the weather was still boiling hot so it was once again about keeping as cool as possible (thank heaven for cotton skirts). And here’s a great tip for taking outfit post pictures: if you find a great location or tourist attraction like this where the light is beautiful and the background is perfect, visit it near the end of the day and stay right up to closing time. We had the top viewing level for five minutes all to ourselves… and of course the obligatory jumping shots started. Scroll down and you’ll see.

P.S. Gok Wan interview will be next week, I promise. Soooo much more work than I anticipated, but it’ll be worth it.

    you look amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely look. Cool and stylish… well done.
    Liked the video. I would have been more worried about people looking up as I am walking acros haha.
    And fear of hights etc. are normal fears or normal phobias. Nothing to worry about.

    Stopping by via the Monday Funday blog hop! What a beautiful location for pictures – like you said the lighting is GORGEOUS. Love the video – looks like you had fun and the view below was breathtaking! Happy Monday!

    I didn't know I had fear of height till I went up Spinnaker Tower. I was fine till I try to walk across the glass bit, I was sooo scared. Your skirt is gorgeous.

    Your skirt is so fun! Love the whole look.

  10. 5 August 2013 / 5:32 am

    What a beautiful day with a perfect summer outfit! The video is too fun – I don't think I would be brave enough to run through unless my eyes were closed.


  11. 5 August 2013 / 2:35 am

    The photos are amazing, but the video is just too cute! My husband is also afraid of heights – to the point that he'd probably refuse to even go up inside the Spinnaker Tower.

  12. 4 August 2013 / 10:46 pm

    Yup, that glass floor would creep me out too!
    Love the skirt tho and what a gorgeous place. xoxo

  13. 4 August 2013 / 3:33 pm

    My palms were sweating just watching that… I think you are very brave – I would never have the courage. Love you and your blog!

  14. 4 August 2013 / 8:33 am

    The photos look great and I love your outfit ๐Ÿ™‚ I followed you a few days ago, by the way. So far I really love what I see on this blog!

    My heart was in my throat just watching you cross! Now I wanna do it too! :o) Two years ago I climbed waaaaaaaay up to the top of a castle tower, then proceeded to walk around the walkway thing that HANGS OUT AWAY from the actual tower (think wrap around porch in the sky). Halfway round I broke in to a light sprint. :o)

    The way you countered the pastel colors with the bright blue was brilliant!

  16. 3 August 2013 / 10:25 pm

    Love your outfit and your hair, all lovely !

  17. 3 August 2013 / 9:32 pm

    Stunning! I don't know how you do it but you just get better with age :))))
