Outfit: Where The Snow Stayed


For the brief years I lived in Pennsylvania I was quite the winter blogger. Snapping pictures for months unending in snow-filled landscapes and ill-conceived dresses and layers upon layers of socks and tights. The pictures looked idyllic and weren't actually too painful, painful was having to shovel my car out of pile of snow each morning and then hunting for a free parking space each evening when the snow piles in our city started to consume the streets. Now, in my current region, I see very little snow, but get as excited as child contemplating a day off school whenever the forecast threatens of flurries. We finally got a few flakes in our region last week and it was lovely to see the landscape briefly transformed into a wonderland. Rain and slightly warmer weather chased the snow's heels however so by the time we had our cameras in hand it was already starting to fade and only lingered in a few icy patches here and there nearly hidden in the tall grasses.

  8. I sort of adopted your winter style of dresses with tights and boots and I love it! Feels really cosy and feminine :)

  9. It's funny how the snow can be such a hassle when it's a regular occurrence, and such a pleasure when it's a rarity. It's too bad you didn't manage the winter wonderland photos of your dreams, but I love the ones that you captured. No joke, I would love for your photographer to offer some advice to us newbies, because they do an amazing job! The light here is so lovely, and these photos are absolutely dreamy.
    Loving the cozy sweetness of the outfit as well. You can't go wrong with a slouchy sweater and oversize scarf!

    1. Hi Jessica, Thank you for the sweet comment, I think I'm just nostalgic for the winters I used to have--it's actually easier to take pictures in full snow than slush! :p
      I actually take a lot of the pictures you see on my blog myself, other times I collaborate with my husband. I do have a series of photo tips you can find on the blog here, they focus on self-portrait photography but the same principles apply: http://www.aclotheshorse.co.uk/search/label/photo%20tip%20tuesday

  10. I just rediscovered your blog today while home sick in bed, and I'm so very glad I did. I followed you years ago before cutting back to following only a few due to a lack of spare time, but I think I may have cut back in the wrong places. I'm having a great time catching up on your lovely posts, photography and scenery. Thanks for sharing your vision.
