The Shoot

The Shoot: Isabella Plantation

Well it’s been a while since I posted on my blog. I really do wonder where the time goes with life; one minute it’s April and you’re enjoying the early spring weather, and the next thing you know it’s June and you’re working so hard you haven’t even realised that summer’s arrived. That I suppose is the downside to being back in work, you really miss the best part of summer.

So this shoot was done at Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, this gorgeous little wooded park with the most colourful azaleas around. I’ve wanted to shoot there for ages, so on a really sunny spring day I took my son and we spent a day rambling around Richmond Park and watched the wild deer, chasing after dogs and we also took these pictures.

The outfit I’m wearing is my take on blue and fuchsia that was all over the high street this spring, and my absolute favourite piece are these Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor trainers in purple. Who wouldv’e thought I’d be such a fan of trainers? Me, of all people! I also got to wear my vintage powder blue dress that hasn’t been seen on this blog in three years. I styled it with a denim shirt from New Look and this lilac wide-brimmed hat from River Island. It’s not my normal style, but I think it made a very cute outfit overall. IMG_5191 IMG_5214 IMG_5232 IMG_5244 IMG_5247 IMG_5249Dress: Vintage from Beyond Retro – Denim shirt: New Look, found here – Purple trainers: Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor, found here – Bag: Hermès Constance in fuchsia – Socks: H&M


Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
