Flower girl

Dress: ally | Shoes: Betts | Socks: handmade 

Summer has definitely decided to show its face where I live, albeit an initial few peculiar days of rain and cool. The best time of day is in the late evening which brings refreshing coastal breezes. I have been spending my holidays lounging about the air conditioned house, reading, conjuring up dream outfits, writing letters to wonderful people, going on successful thrifting trips, having bake-a-thons with friends, ice skating and watching The Big Bang Theory practically every night.

The dried lavender was kindly given to me in bunches from my next door neighbor and was intended for craft activities, however I have been admiring them so much in a vase on a top shelf in my room. I felt like a flower faery goddess posing with them for these photos! My penchant for floral prints have not changed this summer (as seen by the pattern of my lace dress) and I don't think it ever will.
