I spied these wonderful vintagey/wedding/tennis photographs from A Cup of Jo and just had to share them because they tick some of my favourite aesthetic boxes:
- Tennis (preferably on an old-school estate, a la Woody Allen’s Match Point)
- Vintage weddings
- Weddings full stop (I am a romantic after all)
- Sensitive, detailed photography
I love the bridesmaid’s butter yellow dress and the brown flats. So stunning in a paired-back retro, no need to think about being beautiful because it just is way.
I love estate tennis style. The subtly tanned skin, the athletic beauty, the clean, pressed whites, the almost coy short dresses and fitted polo tops. Tennis is innately elegant, innately classy.
A still from 2005′s Match Point, one of my favourite films. I love the easy elegance: the slouchy marle top, the whites, the preppy ponytail, and of course her amazing aristocratic cheekbones.
And of course the recent Hermes take on tennis: Hermes and Tennis is the perfect style marriage when you think of it.
