Night Of Summer Stars


Finding this abandoned barn was pure luck: I was home alone for the second day in a row and didn't expect either of my roommates home on an 88 degree day in our little non-air conditioned house, so after running errands and eating Thai food in bed I decided I ought to get in the car to do more than just grocery shopping and post office visiting and I thought it might be nice to visit my old college campus which I haven't been to since I graduated and it was always a pretty place tucked away with fields and river, but halfway there I spied these decaying steeples through a cluster of trees and made the sudden decision to exit the highway and weave around some backroads until I finally was face-to-face with the abandoned builings. Like I said, pure luck--I need to make more spontaneous decisions to drive off on random adventures.

This looks like such a beautiful peaceful place! And you look very good for just stumbling upon it! Sometimes I wonder if fashion bloggers always dress the way they do in outfit photo's, you obviously do ;)

You look beautiful in green and the church is a great backdrop (soon to become a classic)? Gotta tell you though, your text today is competition for the longest sentence in the world award. ;)

That hair clip is so cool! You made the right choice in not going on to your school--this place was the perfect photo-op for the dress! :)

First off, I am rather jealous of such a cool abandoned place find! What neat windows and the sagging steeple!

Second, your figure always looks so lovely in dresses. Simple, yet elegant.

That old barn is amazing. The detail of the star is so cool, I wonder what it symbolizes?
