On the Plethora of Dryads

This outfit feels a little dryad inspired, which makes me want to read poetry while perched on a moss-covered tree branch. If it was more spring-like in the weather here, I might just spend some time outside reading, but alas it is cold and the sky is threatening to rain. This is the tragic difference between fantasy and reality and why I tend to dress for the former.

  1. It's spring weather here, and although I've been outside reading, I've been reading my notes because I've got exams fast approaching. :(

    Lovely outfit. THe headband is so so pretty. And as always, I adore your rings. I really hope I can get some unique rings this summer.

  5. HAH! I own the same dress. I always find it amusing when people own a same item as me, because everyone combines it differently.
    I love the entire colour combination. Those tights and shoes are gorgeous! And I like the decoration in your hair.

    The weather over here is cold and rainy too. It's starting to annoy me.

  7. Great look. I recognized the dress right away as one from H&M because I wanted to get that one! It was totally on sale too :)

    It looks great on you. Keep up the good work!

  10. Your post and the photos make me wish once again, for the perfect summer afternoons, when everything around you is almost silent save for the occasional chirping of birds or the rustling of leaves in a sudden breeze.

    It would be nice then to just curl up under a huge shadowy tree with a book of poems in your hand and a mind full of fantasies.

  12. Why are your pictures always so amazing :) The headband is adorable! When that sunny weather finally arrives I won't even be able to read outside because I really hate bees and wasps (they are everywhere).

  13. You remind me of a elfin princess here. (That makes it sound like I actually knew one in real life.)

    I'm sorry to report that my nearest H&M is in Atlanta, a mere 900 miles away.

  65. This is so beautiful! The vintage fascinator is so ethereal... have you ever listened to Joanna Newsom? This particular outfit reminds me of her music a lot for some reason. Sort of folktale/fairytale-ish?

    Love it!

  66. This is the most ridiculously pretty post I've seen for ages. The beautiful outfit plus the photography.... *sighs* That fascinator is amazing.
