Many moons ago I was contacted by the lovely people over at Little Mistress asking if I’d like to photograph one of their dresses in their Look Collection – a selection of summer inspired formal dresses. With the best excuse to dress up a little, I spent weeks trying to find the perfect location to fit.  A few weeks ago now, me and my family spent 7 days away chilling out in the Cotswolds. A place I’ve not visited before, it was filled with the most picturesque of villages, with floral displays and cottages a plenty. So I chose to shoot these photographs in Bibury, the most beautiful of villages – and one rather popular with the tourists!
I’m not normally one for overly girly prints, but there’s something about this watercolour-esque floral print that I really love about this dress. With an under-skirt, sweetheart neckline and beading details around the waistband, there’s certainly something that extra special about this frock – making it perfect for summer weddings/proms etc. Unfortunately I don’t have any such occasions coming up (I’ve never even been to a wedding before!), but with a pair of casual heels, sunglasses and a denim jacket, I love how easily it can be dressed down. I hadn’t intended to wear a hat with this outfit (I know, me without a hat is practically unthinkable!) – but I couldn’t help snapping a few quick photos on a separate day when I spotted this incredible floral wall – it would’ve been rude not to, right?!
In other news, I’m slightly snowed down with university work, having less than 2 months to complete a whole year’s worth of work – which is slightly insane. In an attempt to be organised and keep to my 3 post a week schedule, I’m trying to plan ahead as much as I can. Whilst I have quite a few outfit posts coming up, I’m thinking of shooting some more beauty/lifestyle posts and maybe some actual fashion posts (rather than personal style) – so I’d love to know which posts are your favourite to read!
