It’s the height of summer and right now in Britain we’re experiencing a bit of a heatwave. With scorching temperatures of over 30 degrees, a country still halfways in lockdown, and usual summer activities suspended for the most part, it’s been an awkward time to say the least.
But while not all of us can or want to travel abroad for a holiday it doesn’t mean we can’t make the most of the weather. It’s no surprise that people are falling in love with local attractions and discovering the beauty of the British isles.
And I wanted to take this energy and channel it into a shoot imagining what a summer holiday in the British countryside might look like. That is where the inspiration for this shoot came from.
The title of this series of shoots, of which there are three in total is Summer Breeze, but it can always be called a jaunt into the British countryside.
The colour scheme for all three shoots is white and green, with natural fabrics such as linen and cotton to keep you cool, and other materials like gold and wood for detailing. For the first outfit I styled this Jacquemus dress from spring/summer 2010 collection, with a pair of sparkly iridescent Kurt Geiger heels for a bit more glitz to such an impressive dress. I love the asymmetrical hemline of this dress, the cross straps at the back and the fact it’s effortlessly sexy and cool for the summer. To be honest with a dress like that you really only need some simple gold jewelley and nice heels to complete the outfit.
Have a look through these images, and let me know how you feel about them. It’s a little more candid and natural than my usual style. 🙂
