Into the clearing...

Happy December, dears! Well, once again I've been pretty busy, but I have been taking plenty of photos. Mostly I've been doing Thanksgiving type things. Thursday was Thanksgiving with my family plus a little belated birthday celebration for my brother, my mum, and myself. After that wrapped up, we went down to my guy best friend's house to see him and his parents (it's tradition to hang out at their house after most any holiday dinner). Overall it was a nice, relaxing day. Friday we went up to the boyfriend's parents' house for second Thanksgiving. Yesterday was just kind of a catch up day as far as running errands and that sort of thing.

I was pretty excited to take photos in my old spot on Thursday! It proved a bit challenging because it's become so overgrown the past couple years. There's really only light available around noon, and it's difficult to find just the right spot! Some places were too sunny, some too shady, etc. So, I played around with it until my nose was red and I just couldn't stay out in the cold anymore. Here are a few of my favourite shots!

 (UO cardigan, vintage dress from Secret Lake, vintage skirt from Mod Elle Vintage, Sock Dreams socks, ModCloth heels)

(These photos make me think of Band of Brothers. "A dell? Like where fairies and gnomes live?")

  (Prime example of an overly sunny shot!)

The top I'm wearing is actually a dress. And a super tight one at that which meant I had to keep tugging it down all day. But I've had this outfit idea for a while now, so it was worth it!

Somehow I only have one day off left before it's back to work for me. Waaaaaaaaah, I don't want to go!


  1. Such pretty photos!! Love the outfit, and the location is lovely and wild :)

  2. I love the feel of these pictures--very nymph-like

  3. Oh, I really love the over-grown look of the setting. I could almost take that spot and place it somewhere on my great-great grandparents property. They lived in the mountains in western Virginia, which is the most beautiful place I know of. Lovely outfit, and I think I might have to find a pair of socks in that color!

  4. The lighting in each photo is magnificent. These are beautiful shots <3 Fantastic skirt, by the way!
