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.
Outfit details:
secondhand scarf (in hair)
H&M jacket
vintage shoes

    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?

  14. Gorgeous outfit, I love the color combo! XOXO,

  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. :)

  16. i really love the location of the photos here.. you always find the best places!! :D
