This morning I popped out the house to go to London Camera Exchange to pick up my new camera. This is what I wore, I ended up in wine and chainmail (not literally!)… but back to the camera!! I have been torn between a Canon 600d/700d and the Nikon D5200/5300. I did a lot of research online before making my decision, but I found an amazing deal at my fav camera shop in Bristol.
All the bloggers seem to go for the Canon varieties and I have played around with them and it was the 600d that had me wanting the flip out screen. It just made filming and taking awkward photos so much easier. All the reviews online were saying the Nikon equivalent, the D5200, was better but having used the Canon, I was still hankering towards changing over to the dark side. I have always been a Nikon girl and I have lenses and kit that fit across the brand. So if I went for canon I would have to buy new kit along with it to get started, then I would have had to figure out how to use it properly.
When I spoke to London Camera Exchange on the phone to discuss which they thought was better, I was told a secondhand Nikon D5200 model had come in, just that day and was up at £229. I was able to also trade in my old Nikon D60 too, so I only paid £150 for the new camera. It’s like it was fait. I am so pleased with my new upgrade, and because I stuck with Nikon, I was able to get straight to it with my current lenses and came home to take my outfit post photos.
So, back to the outfit!! I literally just rushed out the house this morn, but turns out I quite like the outfit I had thrown on. I am usually a bit self conscious in this shorter (than i’m used to) skirt which was from Primark. Not because of the length of it, but because the waist line just doesn’t ever seem to sit very flattering-ly. But I decided as this outfit was good enough to pop in to town in, it was good enough to share with you! I wore my Primark pleather jacket too, which with the weather being so cold, I cold have done with popping my fur stole round my neck.
I am so pleased I have been able to get some wear out of my Rock n Religion jumper that I won via an instagram competition in the summer, it’s only now I have started to wear it. It’s really comfy and I do love a good metallic! I am pretty much living in my Dr Marten Amilitia Boots and wear them everywhere that isn’t a smart occasion. They are wearing well and are so comfy, the feel like the are moulded to my feet.
