in a world of my own

Happy Earth Day! I thought it was a fitting day to post these photos my dear friend Sara and I took last weekend while I was visiting her down in Monmouth. We drove through the back roads of town in the early evening, marveling at the scenery and looking for pretty places to explore. There are so many fields and wide open spaces you can look on for miles and miles- a perfect place for a claustrophobic such as myself. We eventually stopped at a small park, unpacked my cameras and took these photos among the thousands of daisies. I couldn't help but feel like I had entered the opening sequence/song of Disney's Alice In Wonderland (with a little Lux Lisbon vibes thrown in for good measure.)

An Etsy Update

Hooray I'm finally getting some new listings into the shop! I love all of these pieces, they're so wonderfully spring-y. Also I created a temporary "prom" section for the shop complete with special occasion vintage dresses, shoes and accessories! You can shop prom here.

Visit the shop here.

April can be so cruel. Yesterday was a sunny 70+ degrees and I'm thinking it's already time to pull my summer dresses out from the depths of my closet and cover my shoulders with sunscreen... and today is a brisk 50 degree day with a thick layer of clouds hovering above my city. I suppose my tan and sleeveless dresses will have to wait, but at least I get to wear this pretty little breezy floral number from Oasap! It's quite fitting for these weather mood-swings we've been experiencing over here. Though all of this on and off rain and sun is working wonders for the scenery. There is almost nowhere wildflowers aren't growing, and I love it.
