Outfit: Pink Ruffles

I always seem to get my best writing ideas at 2am.
I'm either still up at two, feeling very inspired, or I'm lying in bed and getting that epiphany moment. Lately it's more of the latter which usually means hastily scribbled notes in the dark I try to discern with little luck in the morning. The next day I often wonder if I missed out on a great idea or if it only seemed great to my sleep-addled brain. I had one of those ideas for this post, but the idea has disappeared back into the ether and I'm sitting here watching the minutes tick by wondering what to write. I suppose I'll just focus on the facts of the pictures; a grey but warm summer day that threatened to storm as I took these photos and then did indeed storm as I walked home which always means the awkward gait of someone trying to protect their camera from the rain with their clothes and body. But before that downpour it was a nice afternoon and I climbed this idyllic tree in the most graceless method. I always scope out more isolated spots for my pictures because aside from how silly you look posing for a tripod I usually compound the potential embarrassment by trying to climb a tree in a dress or some other foolishness which has an awkward process but can lead to a pretty picture...
I have a craving for more bold, statement jewelry (maybe some huge bangles?) at the moment, but inevitably I find myself wearing more dainty details. A simple vintage brooch adds a sweet and sophisticated touch to any dress and finishing off my braids with a little velvet bow always me feel more feminine and polished.
