I've been SO excited to share this post with you as I think it might literally be one of my favourite outfit shoots yet. I saw this laundrette as we were taking a stroll round south Bristol and told Tom how cool I thought it would be for pictures. I think he got it but he didn't really GET IT if you know what I mean? Anyway when I told my buddy Lauren that I thought I'd found the perfect place she was like 'yep totally get it' and she just did you know?
Ever since I saw Liv Purvis in that pink And Other Stories dress I was getting major buyers regret for not whipping it up as quickly as others (if you haven't seen it, its sold out but Liv's post on it is here). So when I saw the Meadow Dress I debated it, I was scrolling through the site on the Mega Bus home from a job in London (I am nothing but glam ;)) and I posted a pic on my stories. Then simultaneously I both turned the page in my magazine to see this dress AND got a message from Charlotte at Betty Magazine to tell me how amazing it was and that's all the enablement I needed!
I have to say I'm not regretted the decision even though my bank balance is that bit lighter.
I love how it's so striking whilst still being something that I think you can wear everyday. It's not breastfeeding friendly of course which for me is the only thing that will stop me wearing it on repeat, but when my best feeding days are over then it's an investment (thats what I'm telling myself!).
In case you were wondering my sunnies are from Boden here and boots here.
I've compiled a little selection of similar items in case these are no longer in stock. Hope you liked this shoot as much as I enjoyed making it!
