Having had one of the busiest few weeks in the history of my life, I relished the chance to have a day off to concentrate on my blog (yes, even on my days off, I still work). After a few hours composing scheduled posts, I decided to take a breather and go for a walk with my boyfriend. We live by the sea, so we tend to take for granted the fresh air, uncrowded streets and oceanic soundtrack - but because we're both so busy, we've learnt to appreciate these small moments of bliss over time.
It was sunny, the wind was low and the air was crisp. As the light started to fade towards twilight, I decided that it would be a good time to work in a quick outfit shoot. However, quicker than I could slip on my favourite pair of heels, an almost opaque sea-mist drifted over the town in an uncannily Stephen King-like fashion. I had intended to use a stunning backdrop of rolling hills fading into the sea, but this was now completely out of the question - the mist was so thick that you could actually see it ebbing over the landscape.
Instead of giving up, we decided to shoot the outfit anyway, and I'm really glad that I did. These photos are some of my favourite yet, simply because of that beautifully mysterious mist; however, I just wish I was wearing something a little more ethereal, like a vintage wedding dress or a sheer ballgown, to compliment the shoot.
Oh well. You can't win 'em all.
