Purple Jumpsuit and a minor Disaster

This is the purple jumpsuit I wore in Downtown Orlando. We were in Florida, to visit my Mum, who lives there. The surrounding streets of Lake Eola provided a magnificent  backdrop for some wonderful bright and cheerful photos of me and my Jumpsuit.

The disaster wasn’t discovered until later, but oh boy was I heart broken…

 The purple Jumpsuit from Mango

One of my January sale bargains. If you are a Mango fan, like myself, I am sure you will agree they often have some amazing sale offers. I deliberately kept this for a vacation trip because I wanted to photograph it in some bright light, to show off the bold floral print.

Silver Iridescent Shoes

These are a very old sale bargain from And Other stories another favourite store of mine. They are at least 2 years old and cost about £15 if I remember correctly. I have worn them a lot being silver they go with everything!

You may have seen them in my shoes and socks post

The Minor Disaster

Well… as I mentioned above, we spent a super afternoon strolling around the pretty streets of the Thornton park area of Downtown Orlando. I photographed houses and tree lined streets to my heart’s content. Meanwhile Marc photographed me in the jumpsuit.

At lunch I scrolled through the images and loved all the photos he had taken, the backdrop of lake Eola was stunning. I eagerly looked forward to editing the photos when I returned home along with writing the accompanying blog post…

All gone?

You know what I’m going to say dont you? On arriving home and trying to upload the sd card I found that somehow the card had become corrupted and I had lost all the images. In order to use the card I needed to reformat it and the images were then erased anyway.

Of course I was heartbroken there were some wonderful pics of my Mum and I on there too.I am none the wiser as to how it happened, has this ever happened to you? Any advice welcome!

    It happens so frequently. Sometimes never and then bam 3 times in a month. Now when away I always take something to back them up from the card on. We have a Wi-fi camera now so I always take really important ones straight onto my phone.
    You may have problems with that card again.

    Any whoo. I think these pics are still beautiful and would never have known. That jumpsuit is stunning and is amazing on you. I would love to put it trainers.

      Wise words Kara! thanks for the advice! Do you have an Olympus pen? I quite fancy one!

    Oh no so sorry about your pictures! That is one gorgeous jumpsuit and I used to live (and still have my husbands family there) in Orlando. We went to Lake Eola a few times!

      Hi Ruth
      I loved the little streets around Lake Eola, so many tourists dont get to see the real Orlando!

      Thank you Tamsyn, its from Mango I think we saw one similar in London when we were all together last time?

    I think these photos work anyway but I totally get you! It’s happened to me but not for a while. Did your mum get any pics you could use?

    • 16th February 2018 / 12:56

      Thanks! but no Mum doesnt do pics! If you had seen the other pics they were amazing like a professional photographer had taken them!

    I do believe this has happened all of us at some point and it really is heartbreaking. I am so sorry. But this jumpsuit is darling and the iphone pictures are fabulous if that’s any consolation.

      Thanks for understanding Shelbee! I hope it never happens again too…

    I’m lucky to say this hasn’t happened to me before, but you can bet it’s going to at some point! I feel your pain! These photos are lovely though. Let’s go shop at Mango!
