Light at the end of the tunnel.............

belt: vintage 80s estate sale
Tights: Target
Shoes: GB moving sale
Ahh…the light at the end of the tunnel. It was great to know it wasn’t a train. It did though lead to an amazing bridge scene. Soon this scene would take on a much more ominous appearance as the sun disappeared and the clouds quickly rolled in. An unexpected storm approaching!

So as we make our way for a snapshot on the bridge the dark comes on fast… as if the bridge was angry for us being there. But thanks to my quick photographer husband we managed to get the lucky shot right before total darkness set in. Then it was a total rush back to the car before the bottom of the sky fell out.

Last but not least today is my Birthday and I’m 33 years old!!

I know this bridge - I've been wanting to use it for a shoot for awhile now. Maybe I'll actually get inspired to do this now!

Here's to our flirty 30's (I'll be 32 on my next birthday)!

Happy birthday! I just bought a darling sixties dress from your Etsy shop that I'm so so excited for. Your outfit is so neat, and I'm so envious of any girl who looks amazing in a hat (which you do!!)

There is such a wealth of inspiration in this strikingly lovely outfit. At once it seems to be channeling a Paris vibe, but then in another shot I was suddenly reminded of Barcelona. In yet another it seemed to encompass the mix-and-match beauty of London street style. Amazing look - and one that you pull off so splendidly!

Many thanks for your wonderful comments, dear, I really hope that your week is off to a terrific start!
♥ Jessica
