Heart of nowhere

#teenvogue // ZARA coat, skirt and bag, F21 top, UO shoes, 17 nails

I hereby coin my signature pose as either touching my face or staring at an imaginary chocolate bar somewhere in the distance. I think it ought to be noted that 90% of my outtakes are me laughing at my own inability to pose in a way that seems natural, I'm genuinely like a baby giraffe and have actually tripped over myself while trying to sashay around during a shoot too many times. That being said, what you don't see are the pictures of me frowning as a passerby whipped out his phone and took a picture of me and then proceeded to walk away before I could ask him why he was snapping me on his blackberry. I imagine the picture will be lost on some obscure corner of the internet with the tag 'gee the lengths kids go to these days to get a good Facebook profile pic'. What can I say? All I really want is for my profile picture to get more likes than the picture of a sloth in a spacesuit I uploaded a couple weeks ago, is that really so much to ask of you, internet? 
To summarise, I'm never taking these nails off because I feel like Beyonce and Cher collided with aluminium foil and it feels fabulous.

  35. I cannot pose to save my life, I feel so insanely awkward and it's my own Mother taking the photos! You always seem really natural in your posts to me. Love this look! So chic.

  37. You don't look too awkward to me, I think everyone feels that way and the truck is to take hundreds of photos. The bright red skirt looks great against the monochrome
