Do Not Call The Forest That Shelters You A Jungle

It's terribly green in my corner of Virginia lately; the woods seem more like a jungle and they threaten to consume the roads. Perhaps that is why I was inspired to wear my growling panther dress again--it belongs in this rambling wilderness. Spring really does have a rampant energy unlike other seasons; Summer is lazy and languid content to let days linger, and while Fall will rush in to make her presence known, despite her colorful dressing she lacks Spring's bursting vitality and Winter just weighs heavily on mind and body...I need to stop anthropomorphizing the seasons and my wardrobe.

I just discovered your blog, and I am in love. I absolutely love your style, and that hair! I have been coveting a pixie for a few months, but I keep chickening out. :)

@Miranda, aw thanks! PS you should do the pixie! I only cut my hair this winter and had really long hair before. It's a bit scary at first, but totally worth the plunge if it's something you want. It can always grow back anyway. :)

I love how you've combined these two pieces to look as though they're one! I love the details of the blouse showing through, I love the pop of colour it brings to the dress.
You always have the most beautiful backdrops for your photos, such a magical place to live!
