One That Would Have The Fruit Must Climb The Tree

I would love to climb this tree one day, purely for photographic purposes...but I don't think I can do it in ten seconds and heels might complicate matters as well. I have looked into buying a remote, but there aren't cheap ones compatible with my particular camera, so that thought is on the back burner for now. One day I'll just have to drag someone along with me to take the pictures because the shape of the branches is just so lovely.
My hair has just been "freshened up." A trim (with too short bangs!) and a demi-permanent dye to redden it for awhile. Demi-permanent goes on top of your natural color and washes out in about a month, so you don't have to deal with roots and is less damaging. I only get it done every four months or so just to make my hair rather intensely red for a short while. The redder hair definitely suits the bright colors I'm wearing.
I found this dress on The Cat's Pajamas and it is going to be so perfect this spring and summer. It reminds me of a picnic blanket, in the best possible way. Now, if only we had the weather to suit such a garment...

  15. What a lovely, moss covered tree! It would be great for reading, though I imagine that moss to be rather damp.
    The colors in that dress are beautiful. I love how you paired it with the grey and yellow. Just perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Everything about this just amazing! I'm not usually big on yellow tights, but these are in class of their own. Could an outfit get any happier?

  26. what a cool tree! love that dress..and the new hair color..semi-permanent is always the way to go. doesn't damage, keeps it fresh.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the color palette of this look! It's so cheery :)
    and your hair looks really good! Being a redhead is fun ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the redder hair! I should've gotten a professional bang-cut before I left for NYC but I'm too cheap and just did it myself. They may be a little wonky, but at least I can see, right? Your bangs look great! Not too short at all.

    ReplyDelete
  29. reminds me of Alice in wonderland a little bit. I had never heard of a demi before so its time for google.

  37. just wonderful! your hair looks lovely, and you always take pictures in the best places (i know, i know... i am such a broken record!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello! You may already know this, but you were featured in a Glamour online article about fighting the winter wardrobe blahs: How to Beat the Winter Wardrobe Blahs

    You looked great! And you inspired me to check out that amazing cowl scarf...

    I linked you on my blog. Thanks for the inspiration!

  41. These pictures are beautiful! I just got a mini tripod so I'm looking forward to taking pictures in the woods like you do! The legs of the tripod have grips that can actually wrap around things to hold it in place. It'd be perfect for using in a tree. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. This outfit makes your hair color really POP! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, that hair really suits you. I like to do demis with red too since it washes out so quick anyway! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. this is probably my favorite outfit of yours since i've started following your blog. just fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Gah! I think you've finally convinced me to buy those shoes. I'm so crazy about them.

    Also, I'm not sure if you're camera does this, but some digital SLRs will have interval shots, that will shoot 10, 15, or however many you want, every 5 or so seconds. It's cheaper than a remote and pretty easy. Does't hurt to check!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love these colors! your hair looks great :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those mossy branches were created for those photos! Love the mustard tights

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love love love the dress! Love the hair! This is one of my favorite outfits of yours yet!

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's true, that is quite a lovely tree. I think your hair looks great! I'm sure I've said it before, but I absolutely love those shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The colour suits you so well! You should get it permanently :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. what a great skirt!
    i've been meaning to buy 'mustard' colored tights but just afraid to so..this post is inspiring me again!

  59. Very nice. I'm liking the shorter bangs and redder hue. The picnic dress is sweet, too!

    ReplyDelete
  60. i love the combo of the dress and the mustard tights! love your redder hair too! and i can relate with not having a remote. one day i'll get one!

    ReplyDelete
  61. so pretty! i am a fan of too short bangs! mine are long and shaggy and in my eyes right now ... not my style!

    ReplyDelete
  62. This look is delightfully picnicy!
    Knowing me I would have tried to climb the tree anyway ended up with all manner of unflattering shots!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love all of the colors in this! That dress is perfect for the seasons to come especially with those tights! Love the rings and of course the shoes. How genius about the demi-permanent hair because I wanted to put some auburn in my hair and I don't want to damage it or anything!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Everything is too gorgeous for words.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  69. Everything's so bright and cheery (nice new hair too, btw!) that it works well with the soft green moss. Also, I love those tights in particular... what color are they in? Because I've been curious about yellow tights, but I wasn't sure whether I'd like yellow or gold better...

  71. I don't believe it!
    I've got the same material with the same colours .. I always thought it was perfect for a pretty 50's dress.. like this!
    So.. I need to design and sew it..
