Friends, this is my greatest shoot to date. Maybe this one comes close, but no cigar.
Moxie woke me up a little early (read: howled at me until I got up and fed her…at 6 a.m.), so I had a few hours in the morning before I went out to meet a friend in the city for some pho. I’d been waiting months to put this dress back on. That long, sweeping skirt will only work when the ground is nice and dry, so it had been on hiatus in my closet, feeling very sad and left out. UNTIL TODAY.
Can you see why I love it?? I remember trying it on in the Anthropologie dressing room, wondering if I had the nerve to buy it. Those stripes and the cut are so dramatic, especially for a smaller frame like mine, but that’s what makes it. Not to mention how very drawn I am to its vaguely regency-era feel. A little bow (a nod to the legendary Rebecca), a sweet clutch, and just a peek of jade under the hem are all this look really needs for polish. I look damn fierce in that last picture. Tyra would be proud.
I was at the mill again for this shoot, this time at the Italian-inspired Graue family home. As I posed on the wraparound porch, a custodian came out to ask what I was doing, and after I explained I was taking pictures for my blog, he made some helpful suggestions for more locations with houses like this one. I’m excited to try them out! Part of the fun of this blog is getting to discover new places.
Where’s your favorite place to shoot?
