White, for me, means summer. It’s the time your skin becomes kissed by the sun and you can slip into a crisp white dress and feel fabulous. It’s the colour that gives you an ethereal glow and reminds you that perfect weather is here to stay. Inspired by my recent day out at Eltham Palace with The White Company, I’ve teamed up with them to create a “Summer Whites” story, photographing my favourite accessories from their current collection (big thanks to Danielle who modelled for me!).
I thought about how I live my life in London as a photographer, how I want to look and feel elegant but be comfortable at the same time. I often find myself carrying extra shoes or accessories if I have to head straight to an event in the evening, which adds to the equipment I have to carry around. So, with elegance and comfort in mind, I wanted to give you all a little summer wardrobe inspiration with The White Company in the three looks I selected.
From beautiful ballet flats, to hats and backpacks, my photo story shows a girl getting lost in the beauty of her own city, discovering pretty corners and enjoying long picnics. We shot these pieces in East London, if you can believe, on a bright day in London. I always thought I had to travel to the most obvious places to find the best locations, but I’ve realised that if you just look a little further, get a little lost, you find the best spots… A bit like the girl in the story…Really hope you like the pictures and get inspired to add some beautiful white touches to your looks this season!
