Outfit: Abandoned House in Northern Ireland


Shooting in abandoned houses will always come with stories attached to them--it's part of the adventure. One of my final excursions with friends in Pennsylvania involved exploring an abandoned mansion. We had to climb a 7 foot fence to get on the property and got freaked out by a dog (which ended up being on a chain) and wandering around the outside of the enormous building before walking away without ever going inside. I do hope to peek inside that mansion one day...Today's abandoned home is much humbler, but perhaps in the end equally interesting. With a few bare pieces of furniture left behind by previous owners, a storm brewing outside, and squirrels running around in the attic, it definitely had an eerie feel. It was still quite beautiful though with some walls fading to a soft teal shade and others covered in peeling pink layers and determined vines of ivy forcing their way through windows and along the walls. Although it requires more effort and perhaps some climbing through windows or over fences, I would like to explore more abandoned places in Northern Ireland or wherever I might end up wandering.

Beautiful photos! I like the casual look you have going on here - most of the time you present a different look. Both work great for you!

Ah I love this so much. I would definitely like to do some exploring of abandoned buildings. I find them so fascinating (but equally would get freaked out by them). They have so many stories to tell!

I always love your abandoned place-set photos. So beautiful! I have such a fascination with old, abandoned things, and I think that is a big part of why I love these types of posts so much.

The sixth picture has "Adventurer" written all over it! It reminds me of Up :)

I would love to go exploring abandoned buildings. I'm always worried about getting caught even though I know the places are abandoned.

This is so perfect! It's so awesome the places that you find to take pictures in over there. Such a beautiful place. :-) It's so crowded where I'm at that finding abandoned places like this to take my pics at is really hard. There are only a couple that haven't been totally vandalized.

Your outfit is sweet perfection. I wear dresses as much as possible, but my second is a cute pair of shorts with tights like you've got here. That's just simple and sexy fashion right there. Love it so much. Nice shoot!

I absolutely love the effect of this abandoned home combined with the casual, edgy T-shirt and shorts. The knee high socks are so fun too!
