This photo has to be one of my favourites from my childhood. Only as a kid can you walk around in a white cotton onesie, holding an umbrella and a handbag indoors and not look like an absolute weirdo. Looking through old photographs of myself makes me really nostalgic for my childhood. Not necessarily because I want to go back and do it again, but because I wish I could see myself so young and meet me as a child. It can’t be just me who feels that way?
One of the fab things about old photos is that we always printed them off. Even though their colouring is all off and quality isn’t that great- having a physical copy is the best. With that being said I definitely prefer modern cameras. I tried getting into film, thinking it would teach me to take better photos but I just didn’t like it. Digital camera’s are definitely my go-to. I’d love to know if you guys prefer film or digital? Or even compact or DSLR? I take the majority of my blog photos on my DSLR but when I’m travelling or out for lunch I take a compact because I think a DSLR can look quite obnoxious and it takes up so much room in my handbag. This post is in collab with Panasonic and the Best Compact Camera Panasonic has to offer!
This old photo was taken in my grandparents house when I went to visit them with my parents. I was obviously super happy with my blue, rainbow handbag and so just had to show it off. I’m not too sure what was going on with the umbrella, but perhaps I thought it was a look. Personally, I think I look fab.
Recreating this photo was really fun. I tried to see if I had a bag like the one in my nostalgia picture but my dad must have sold it at a car boot when I was younger because we have nothing in the attic that even comes close to that iconic blue bag. Over the years my rainbow blue handbag slowly changed into a deep plum Kate Spade bag. The glow-up with regards to handbags was definitely a good one but I’m not too sure about myself looks-wise. I was definitely cuter as a small chubby two year old with blonde curly hair! I knew I still had at least one bodysuit lying around my house (this one’s Abercrombie & Fitch), so I whacked that one on and surprisingly I don’t think that the shape of my legs has changed at all over the years ?
You can definitely tell I was going to either be a blogger or a massive poser because my smile is camera ready at less than two years old here! I am sad to say that because I had to open up an umbrella indoors to recreate this pic, I’m now cursed with another seven years bad luck.
I’ve seen people re-create old family photos when they have lost photos or for presents and I actually think that re-creating old ones and making an album full of them would make a fantastic Christmas present! Printing off photos is a habit I’m always reminding myself I need to get into.
