Sunshine and Shoots...

Last Sunday the Sun was shining and London was glowing....the weather was finally perfect for the Photo Shoot with Horst Friedrichs to go ahead!

It didn't go quite according to plan on the 1st attempt earlier this month, so you can imagine our joy when the City decided to give us the light, at last. Thanks to The Boy being the brilliant photographer he is, he took some pictures of what was going on behind the scenes for the blog - thank you so much Sir for these!


It was lovely to see Horst again & also meet his assistant Filip, who bought me my favourite flowers (Peonies) to put in my Pashley Basket for the photos :) 

The scene was very different to the Rainy Day that we experienced earlier this month - which also allowed us to do the shoot in two different outfits. The 1st one was quite relaxed and went a little something like this:
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Necklace: Tatty Devine
Vest Top / High Waisted Shorts / Sandals: Topshop
Yellow Bangle: Camden Market
Ring: Tatty Devine

... and then for the 2nd outfit, there was a slight change in style:
Sunglasses: Tatty Devine for John Lewis
"LadyVélo" name necklace: Tatty Devine
Dress: LAFrock
Ring: Dorothy Perkins
Mary Jane Shoes: Vivienne Westwood

Spot the unexpected visitor who decided he wanted to be in the photos?
His name was Taco, and I could have easily put him in my basket and taken him home!

For a few more behind the scenes shots of the day taken by The Boy, the set can be viewed here - once again, thank you so much for these Sir :)

I can not wait to see Horst's photos from Sunday, and too see his book come together. It's such a fantastic project & I'm honoured that he asked me to be a part of it.

@ Adele: Thank you! I'm glad that the sun is finally shining properly in London so I can wear summer clothing! Are you waiting for your summer to get off the ground? x
