    Sport meets Style

    Exercise… ? ohhhh I thought you said accessorise. I’d like to think I know what I’m doing, but I will leave the sport to the sporty, I’m here for the style. I really want to do more editorial photoshoots, completely inspired by Andrew Murphy. And extra is my middle name, so why not add the thing I absolutely suck at in a photoshoot and thats sport. Catching the ball in this picture took a while, but I had so much fun. Lets talk about my outfit I decided to keep the sporty trend, so I went for my adidas track pants, honestly so comfortable, with my Calvin Klein sports bra,…
