Images by Maleika Halpin of House of Avalon {please do drop by and send her a kiss for me} <3 

Apologies for the unexplained absence of late ... this week has been a flurry of meetings, endless to-do lists, soirees with lovely company ... and of course, shift work. The beautiful chaos of it all, and now, a slower pace with an extended weekend, which will be filled with planning for a Parisian sojourn, a few career decisions to be made, and more pretty collaborations in progress ...

This series was shot by my beautifully talented friend Maleika of the gorgeous blog House of Avalon. This is quite a different aesthetic to my other blog posts but I adore the urban landscape against a few of my favourite sartorial pieces of the moment - I love that Maleika is able to encapsulate not only an outfit behind the lens, but also a story ... to be continued.

Much love, Mandy. xx

  12. I like those photos a lot! especially the third one.. so cool and magazine-like. oh and how brilliant is the way how you have combined an elegant statement necklace with a casual white tee. I like that too! gosh and I already can't wait for the extra long weekend to arrive! three and a half days left to wait, hehe.

  22. As always, I cannot flaw your outfits Mandy.
    Your sunnies are stunning, and were possibly crafted to suit your face so structurually. The added necklace is so refined yet playful and yet your corporate-like attire doesn't make me feel insuccessfully intimidated! Haha! Although I probably would be if I saw you down the street dripping in such class. I hope your week has calmed down, you've certainly a lot on your busy plate! I was going to comment on how the 'scape' of this photoshoot is different to what I'm accustomed too but that goes to showcase your versatility so well, your friend captured this perfectly :-)
