The Leaves Conferred

You can't really see it well in the pictures, but the scarf I'm wearing in my hair is an amazing find...twice over. I bought it secondhand when I studying abroad in Japan, so I have pleasant memories associated with it. For ages I wore it around my neck (Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde style). Then (quite like my father's old beret), when I moved to Washington state last year it went missing. I searched high and low and emptied every box, but it was nowhere to be found. I bought a couple of small "replacement" scarves, but none of them quite took it's place...and then we moved to Virginia this summer and I found it again. A short, somewhat pointless story to say: I'm happy this scarf is back in my life.

If you haven't noticed; berry and navy are one of my favorite color combinations. Those shades just work together so nicely and balance nicely with neutrals. So this dress sent to me by my new sponsor Vestique is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. I failed to photograph the details of it properly because I was too busy climbing trees, but it definitely is a sweet little dress.

  13. I can't wait to see a special detail of the week post on it, because I bet it's absolutely amazing.

    I need more moat photos! :)

    The thing about your scenery photos is that you're one of the few who actually braves going the distance of doing something with the actual scenery. The landscape always plays a role in your photos.

    Do you ever damage your clothes after clambering up and down things?

  15. @Mae Lu, quite often I damage my clothes! I mean, I get soaked at the beach sometimes, I often rip tights, or scratch leather shoes. I haven't ripped a dress yet. But I feel clothes are meant to be worn and I don't want to let fear of ruining things stop me from enjoying my favorite activities. :)

  21. Gorgeous tree and lovely photos. If I knew a tree like this one I'm certain I'd send hours upon end reading or sketching while perched on its immense limbs.
