    Fairy of the Woods

    I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately (although if you check my Facebook page, I’ve posted a few bits and bobs, but not much), but I’ve been really uninspired to put words to the pictures that I have. I’ve got a camping trip, an outfit post, and a 4th of July day all photographed, but… ah, I don’t know what it is with words lately! On Wednesday, I did a photoshoot with my friend Sarah– isn’t she gorgeous? We had a blast tramping around in the woods, pretending she was a forest fairy (or a Disney Princess– while we were shooting, a fawn came up within ten feet of her…

    Dressember 2013

    Yesterday, as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, I came across this post from Cut and Chic vintage, and it sparked my interest. I have been thinking about more ways to utilize blogging in positive ways, so I did a little more research about it. The campaign she posted about is called Dressember, and it is an awesome way to use an interest in fashion to impact the world for good. For the entire month of December, women everywhere can wear a dress every day of the month to raise money and awareness in alignment with International Justice Mission that will help rescue victims of slavery, sex trafficking, and…

    Where the wild roses grow

    I think I am now addicted to head accessories, you guys. Wearing the one hat has just led to this feeling that no outfit is quite complete without something on my head. And I love it, because it’s also pushing my style back towards the more retro feel (and sometimes full-out 1950’s) that I really love.I’ve always had this huge struggle with settling into just one style, mostly because I look at other bloggers and think “Oh, I love her sense of style, maybe I should try that!” But this week I’ve realized that I just feel the best when I’m dressed in something that looks very retro, regardless of…

    Graysmarsh U-Pick Berry and Lavender Farm

    On Saturday, we went to the Graysmarsh farm in Sequim, where you can pick your own raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, loganberries, blackberries, boysenberries, artichokes, lavender, and who knows what else! It was SO much fun; this is one of the places we went on the day we got engaged last year, so we’ve decided to try to make it a yearly tradition to come. I tried to discover a little more about the farm, but the only thing I can find is that these berry fields were being cultivated as early as 1855. Everything else on their website history page is… not useful to me. Ha! Well, it’s interesting, but it…
