Asleep On A Sunbean

Photo taken by the lovely Sarah-May.
As we so frequently play weather roulette with the ever changeable British summertime, those days of blue skies and tall shadows are ones for fun times, not editing. It was with that spirit in mind that Howard, my wonderful boyfriend booked two tickets to the Idler Garden Party at Fenton House in Hampstead.

It was as if they'd designed it for the two of us. For Howard and his interest in martial arts, they had various displays of gentlemanly fighting techniques whilst I was very happy to learn how to Lindy-hop in the sunshine.

How to use a cane when crime fighting.
The martial arts techniques were genuinely useful with some female exhibitors bringing out the girl power. However it was definitely the gin and Lindy-hopping which stole my sunshine filled heart. Hendricks gin cocktails whilst sat under a shady tree definitely felt like the height of decadence.

Mmmmm.... gin.
For the event, I wore my ever trusty black Collectif swing dress as it's always the perfect choice for dancing funtimes. As I am whiter than milk, I teamed it with a straw hat from H&M which I'd brought for my Narrow Boating trip in the Springtime.

Because my head and hair are quite big, I tend to use hairgrips to keep it in one place. It's great as it means you don't have to worry when dancing, running or even when faced with a gust of wind.

My Sunday was also spent outside, but under very different circumstances. I would be the person shooting an Autumn editorial on the hottest day of the Summer!

Necklaces from Tatty Devine and Sugar and Vice amongst others.
Hello Kitty biscuits - the ultimate Photoshoot essential!
Although the day felt more like bronzed goddess, we were channelling Autumnal Queen with some stunning results. The images will be coming out later in the year, but here's a sneak peek of the colour scheme.
There were lots of rich reds, golds and Autumnal hues on set.
I bet you can't guess where on the body this was worn... it's not a tutu!

Until next time - have a great weekend!
