Outfit: I'm A Picnic

The pictures I took earlier this week (shared on Wednesday) were taken in between and during spats of drizzeling rain.
It wasn't hard rain so I soldiered on taking pictures until it grew heavier and then I covered my equipment with my coat and found shelter for myself under a nearby tree until the weather improved. There's been a lot of those rain clouds overhead lately (it's why Ireland is so lush and green), so it was fitting when a sunny afternoon finally arrived that I was dressed in this festive outfit that feels like a walking picnic. Gingham and check prints always remind me of picnics in the summer, even when they're in the form of a dress rather than a blanket. And you can carry a basket for your valuables ala Jane Birkin if you really want to sell the picnic look! This look felt like a mini celebration of all things summery and sunny and really, we should try to celebrate the little things--like a bright afternoon and a few fading sunflowers...

  1. Whoa! Your photography takes me breath away!

  2. Yours is my favourite style blog - your outfits always stand out, and you have an amazing way of choosing the perfect background/settings to fit. <3

  3. Wowwww what and incredible dress! You look amazing.


  4. OH MY GOSH!!! The gingham....this dress...the flowers....the woods....this DRESS....kind of freaking out over the PERFECTION!

  5. I have been following your blog for seven or eight years now and it remains my favorite. As mentioned above, your outfits always stand out. I think this in part because you seem to stay true to yourself and your aesthetic, but also because you have a great eye and always manage to find the perfect setting to highlight your look. It's wonderful to see how the two so often complement each other in the most natural way. I'm frequently in awe of the content you manage to share here and on various social media sites and I'm grateful for it. I stumbled upon this blog at a time when I very much needed an outlet and over time you've introduce to various media (books, television, film) and helped me to discover an appreciation for art, street style, and fashion that is specific to me. It's been a pleasure watching your blog change and grow and I hope to continue doing it for years to come.

  6. Love this look - so Anne of Green Gables! That dress is an absolute dream.

  11. @L, thank you for the sweet and thoughtful comment! It really made my day to read what you wrote. I hope my blog can continue to grow and change in organic and good ways. I'm glad that my blog has been a bit of an outlet for you (also that's part of the reason I started it!) and this also reminds me I should work on some more good movie and inspiration posts. :)

  12. Hello! I'm looking around your website and even if this post is not one of the newest and I may seem inappropriate, I would like to let you know that this is one of my favourite! Not only I love the dress and how you wear it but also all the arrangement of the flowers, the basket and how you have posed. Lovely!
