It’s funny, there are probably a million photos we take for this blog that never see the light of day. These are a few of those.

I always plan my blog shoots around when I’m in town, planning what outfit I want to talk about etc. Sadly I’m too busy to just go to the streets and shoot whatever…and even this was part of an Instagram shoot whilst we were filming a video (coming soon!) at the Artist Residence Hotel.

 

My husband and I were walking to grab a snack and the early evening light was so beautiful, we decided to shoot for instagram and ended up trying a few extras just for fun.

Photographing for fun: it almost seems a lost phrase for us these days as it’s so associated with work. but often, this is how the best photos happen.

The outfit is pretty basic: my uniform of stripes, jeans and flats. I love this J Crew tee, it’s really lightweight and so easy to wear and I’m loving a red stripe as opposed to the classic navy.

In a world where everything is so staged, planned, planned and styled – here’s to a few photos that were a bit more ad hoc and spontaneous – because we all need a bit of that in our lives.

  1. Help – cannot get those black Kate Spade earrings out of my head… They are pricey, but are they worth it?? Loving the red stripe breton – you reminded me I have the J Crew one from last year X

  2. Love the red breton and am keen to buy – could you let us know what size you’re wearing as the sizing on their website is a little strange? Thanks so much, Anna

  3. Finally visited your blog after having stalked you on social media for a while 🙂 Love the red striped top, Alex! Still very Parisian chic, but a bit more daring. And I absolutely agree that it’s nice to have fun while shooting for once instead of being overly worried with the result and how instagrammable a pic is, let’s keep it real!

    Happy weekend, gorgeous
    Xx
