She twines her spines up slowly...

Hi, doves! I haven't done a shoot in my favourite tree since way, way back in this post. I had intended to shoot this outfit in one of our tiny local cemeteries, but my old spot called to me. It's crazy to see how much this area has grown in the past few years. It's wilder now, tougher to navigate, which makes me love it even more. I always feel at home in this tree; it's a place I'll return to time and again to clear my head. Though the briars and sharp snapped ends of branches tore my sweater and scraped up my back, it didn't even register at the time. All I felt was peace of mind.

Also, I had wanted to incorporate this gorgeous vintage bag, but none of the shots worked out (anyone else feel awkward trying to maneuver a giant bag??) But I figured I'd show it to you anyway because it's so lovely.

Copper and corduroy.

Hi, doves! Just a quick post this week as life has been out of hand lately. But I still wanted to share these photos because this is one of my favourite autumnal outfits thus far. I was looking for the perfect seventies-inspired striped top and just happened to find it in TJ Maxx last week! Also, if you obsessively hunt for corduroy skirts (among other things) like I do, thredUP is a gold mine.

 Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
