In the Meadow

I’ve been feeling quite (okay, very) inspired by the 70s recently. Haim are my hair inspiration now and forever. I’ve been coveting just about everything from the Honeywood VIntage etsy shop, but until then I’ll just have to make do with things that I find in the attic, like this dress / nightgown that I found a couple of weeks ago. Taking pictures in this particular field is very nostalgic for me because it’s where me and my friend Joe used to go to take pictures when he was doing his photography A level. It makes me sad to know that within the next couple of years this field will be turned into a housing estate. Where will I go to take pictures in flowy dresses?

Whilst I was taking these photos, a horse ran past followed 30 seconds later by its rider. Don’t worry, everyone involved was fine but it was definitely more exciting than your average outfit photo taking trip!

I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be walking around bare armed and bare-legged, it’s getting chilly! I hope you’re having the best Thursday.

Update: I’ve just found out that my mum bought this dress from a market in Johannesburg in the 70s – what a lovely history it has 🙂

  1. These are such beautiful photos Jess. Both you and the field look incredible! That is such a nice dress and you look really stunning!!! I’m glad the horse rider was okay, the strangest news I hoof (lol) herd (lol) all day, sorry the story just happened to stirrup all these puns. xxx
