The Butterfly Swing DressAugust 03, 2015
After a ravaging and dangerous july storm (really, july had it all: heat wave, frost and storm) august brought us some better weather and Ben and I decided to have a hike in the outskirts of our amazing hometown, Zutphen, alongside the river the Ijssel - it's just one of the most beautiful spots Zutphen has and I can't get enough of it. Ofcourse I took my camera with me for some nature shots and realized I was wearing a dress that I could highlight on my blog, so I asked Ben to take a few pictures of me.
I know photographing in midday light is a no-no, so we walked towards a gigantic highway bridge that crosses over the river the Ijssel and take my picture underneath it (you can see the monstrosity reflect in my sunglasses) to reduce the harsh lighting a bit. It felt creepy standing underneath that bridge because of the cars that pass over your head with high speed.
The dress is by Hearts & Roses and is one of my favorite summer frocks. The quality is sturdy and the fabric is a slight stretchy cottonmix. What I love, is that it's só colorful because of the abstract butterfly print; it's almost like looking through a kaleidoscope. The shoulder straps of the dress are to be tied into bows, which makes the dress even more cute.
