Hello dears! I wanted to share some fun (or maybe not so fun) behind the scenes of our seemingly oh-so-perfect pictures from Milan. As I already mentioned before, our trip was quite hectic, since our “to-do” list was long and schedule was tight. We had several shoots to be done – two of them were planned for Saturday. All was good until we saw the weather forecast – it was 100% chance of shower rain starting 11am. And we had to shoot summer outfits for Guess (outfit details and links at the end of the post). On the streets of Milan. With the perfect “summer vibe” and all that stuff. What we got instead was grey sky, shower rain and 14 degrees. Not so summerish, right?
The only solution was to shoot early in the morning, before 11 am when the rain was supposed to start. So we set our alarm at 6 am to get ready and head over to Navigli district – a lovely Milanese area with two canals and lots of restaurants alongside the promenade. It was cold, we had heavy bags full of other outfits with us, we could sense the upcoming rain in the air, we didn’t have time for breakfast and our feet were hurting (and literally bleeding) from all the walking – I was wearing heels for 15 hours straight the day before haha. Anyways, I’m not whining here, just sharing the story behind these pictures.
As Estonians say, lõpp hea, kõik hea. We managed to have our shoot done JUST before the shower rain started. We changed to some warmer clothes (in the bathroom of a random store) and celebrated our morning with croissants, coffee and “Despacito” dance at a random cafe – the local guys were nice enough to let us in and prepare some good Italian espresso alongside with Despacito, Subeme La Radio and La Mortidita tunes.
10 am latino party at a closed cafe, why not? XX
