Grafea x Coco Cami

My feet barely touched the floor last week, for no sooner had I returned from my trip to Chester than it was time for me to travel to Manchester to do a street style photo shoot with Grafea* bags. It was an amazing experience, and so nice to be close to home for the day. I grew up in Derbyshire, so Manchester was always my nearest city growing up. I still love Manchester even though I live near Liverpool now, because I moved there to Liverpool do my Masters degree and settled there after that.
 I loved the Grafea 'Baby Sunny' yellow leather rucksack we worked with on the day of the photo shoot. It was a gorgeous, 'zingy' colour and such a cool bag. The quality is amazing and it has adjustable straps too, which are very useful indeed. There are a lot of other styles and colours in the range, so be sure to check them out! I worked with the lovely Amy, the Photographer and PR for the Grafea brand. We had fun walking around Manchester, looking for cool locations to shoot, such as the archway covered in graffiti! We had a good giggle when curious taxi drivers were turning their cars around in the road we used for part of the shoot, they were probably wondering what was going on!
 A big thank you to the Grafea team and especially to Amy, who put me totally at ease even though I had never done anything like this before. It was a great experience!



These are just some of the pictures from the day:





 










 My new Zara coat was given a real edge by the yellow rucksack!

Coat-Zara
Bag-Grafea
Jeans, hat and t-shirt-Primark
Boots-River Island



The gorgeous 'zing' of colour this bag gives to any outfit is incredible. It looks great paired with black or neutral clothes to give a 'pop' of colour!


It was great fun posing for the pictures!






One of the amazing backdrops used for the shoot.

So after all of that posing, I was hungry (as usual) so I had lunch in Manchester then I met my friend for a coffee before I headed home to the Wirral. It was an amazing day which I will remember for a long time to come!

  4. I really love that backpack and this photo shoot. I especially love how the yellow backpack looks with the Zara coat that you're wearing in the 5th picture, because it adds a nice touch of contrast to your outfit.

  32. That yellow bag is absolutely gorgeous. It's such a shame that you didn't get to keep it! At least you got it for a little while though, haha :)
    The nearest city to me growing up was Manchester too! It is now, again, as I'm currently living with my parents. And, congratulations on the Masters, Camille! May I ask what you studied? :)
