Love how Tatiana has worn her hi-lo/dipped hem dress: cinched with a belt to make it empire line-ish and black laced up ankle boots. The way she has styled her look reminds me a little of Laura's look....
Yesterday, when it was teaming with rain here in London, I saw 3 separate girls wearing army jackets/anoraks over dresses and thought they looked great. Inspired by their looks, I decided to post the photos of this girl and Jac (see post above) from couture in Paris....both wearing an army jacket in very different ways. If you don't already have one in your wardrobe, vintage/charity stores always seem to have a few in stock (there is one vintage shop in the Marais in Paris which always seems to have a couple available).
Such a fresh, pretty summery look: a lovely white peplum top, jeans, wedges and a basket bag (so chic and so often confined to fruit and veg shopping at the markets, or carrying things to the beach. This brings it back to city wear).
Okay, so I think you all know that I love anything in lace and this Valentino dress on Tamu is no exception. I love the shape, the fabric and the beautiful ivory colour. A dress to take you from day to evening and everywhere in between.
This was my day spent at the beautiful, magical, whimsical celebration of life, love, family, food, friends, music, the outdoors (and so much more) that was the Wilderness Festival 2012. It is difficult to explain just how beautiful the Cornbury Estate is: lakes, a waterfall, hidden forests, fields of deer, ancient trees and lush green fields....it is truly a little (although the estate comprises 1700 acres so maybe not so little!) piece of paradise in the heart of Oxfordshire.
I had a wonderful day wandering around the festival taking photographs, chatting to people (bumped into a few familiar fashion week faces!), eating incredible food and drinking in the magical surroundings. I can't wait for next year's festival.
p.s. I know, I know, a LOT of photos again (maybe I need an intervention?!) so congrats if you made it through the entire post without closing down the page :) I totally forgot to take food photos (particularly the Yotam Ottolenghi banquet) but figure I can do that next year :)
p.p.s Thank you so much to everyone who let me take their photograph including all the mum's and dad's that let me take photos of their kidlets.
March: Dreaming of my incredible trip to Colorado in late January.....horses, oodles of snow, and a fairytale setting. I want to go back again now; Eating: Inspired by my trip to Paris this month (and the unseasonably warm, spring-y weather), goats cheese tart served with a rocket, beetroot and avocado salad is on the menu for this week. I like the sound of this Jamie Oliver tart (and note no pfaffing about making pastry - ready made shortcrust is far less likely to have me in tears of frustration!); Drinking: Old Fashioned (had an awesome one at Keens Steakhouse, NYC); T by Alexander Wang cutout crepe playsuit; Jacquemus cropped sweater (wear with boyfriend jeans or high-waisted mom jeans for less bare tummy gap); Acne Studios Thelma dress (wow! love the corsetry. So pretty. Team with flats for day and dress up with wedges or high-heeled sandals for evening); Miu Miu printed Mary Jane flats (meow, meow, meeeeeeeowwwww); Tibi eyelet skirt (fresh and pretty and not too voluminous); Jenni Kayne slit front skirt (sophisticated and sexy. Adore); Topshop lazer cut satin skirt (peek-a-boo excellence); Maps by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski (I was given a copy of this beautifully illustrated book of maps by the publisher and I absolutely love it. A lovely gift for both littlies and oldies); Ready for Spring/Summer: Toast Boules Set, Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk perfume and Anthropologie Hillside Picnic basket; Reading: Dwell magazine (not sure how this magazine escaped my notice until now. Love. So inspiring).
I am an Australian lawyer turned photographer living in London;
I take a thousand photographs every day - some in my head, some with my camera;
I can't imagine doing anything else with my life- I am totally and utterly in love with my camera and with the people and things I photograph
