heart shirts and skate skirts

heart shirts and skate shirts
It has taken me awhile to be like 'Oh ok I want to make that into a blog post'. For a whole year i posted no matter how much I liked the outfit or the photos. Since then I have felt less 'inclined' to post frequently. Obviously. Ah well. I am at a point where editing myself and spending more time on posts is more important than frequency. Some awesome life changes are coming and I am hoping that the blog will find its cozy place as I venture onward. I plan to use it as a catalyst actually to continue moving my photography and blogging skills forward along with me. Yay Change!

fallen trees

fallen trees
I lost this skirt. For like a long time. A long long time. And obviously found it (thanks purge)
I felt like it was down the rabbit hole. So I was feeling like venturing out in the land I am so grateful to call my home. 
These fallen trees have lots of stories :) Thumper shirts and flowy maxi skirts and trees go really well together in my opinion!

the benefits of fringe

slow your style - fringe benefits
Much love to my fringe jacket. It seriously has been getting me through some of these dreary not so wonderful spring days. Finally there are peeks of sun but it is still quite chilly and frankly I am so over it. All of this has kept me from posting frequently plus the busy state I have been in with spring planting on the farm and lots of photography projects. I am always so happy when I get back to blogging, it really is one of the most rewarding things for me.

turquoise kinda day

turquoise pants
Pretty much year round I wear "Spring" and "Fall" colors. I don't see a reason to hide out my color collection for one season or another. But for some reason right at the start of a season I get really seasonally color happy. Like I MUST wear spring colors right in April as the daffodils start flowering. Or I must wear my mustards and burnt oranges right as August starts to wind down. Today I really wanted to bust out my spring colors and specifically this BAG. I love this bag. It is the perfect size for my not full frame camera (my full frame is huge and won't fit) and all my other stuffs. I love to take it out shopping or running around town for errands/meetups. It is quite the little gem.

My dad decided to photobomb the session. Oh and Rue too ;)

What about you? Do you save spring and fall colors for those specific seasons? Or do you find them creaping into other seasons as well. I love pairing spring and fall colors all year round or using them to pop up my neutrals in the winter when everything is so boring and bland.

just a little spring

spring vintage skirt
The sun is peaking out which just makes everything feel like spring. The crocuses are blooming and everything is just starting to green up. I finally feel like I can pull out things that expose my legs and not freeze my little bum off.

I tromped through my woods with my dogs and my tripod for these shots. I enjoyed being able to not feel like I had to quickly take photos this day, I felt like I had all the time in the world to set up and capture these moments without losing fingers to frostbite. My hair is also getting a little too 'fluffy' for my liking. Time for a trim!!!
