I thought it was due time to change up the mood a bit over here… so even if it was rather dark and creepily on the verge of a massive thunderstorm (one Britt and I had to run through quickly back to the shelter of our car), you can’t actually tell from these photos, so I still get credit right?
I actually love summer thunder storms. They provide you with the perfect excuse to stay bundled up indoors with a movie, a book or a good project. It feels like nature’s way of letting you off the hook from all of those strange expectations we place on ourselves to stay outdoors all summer and lets you simply take a break, enjoying a bit of rest without guilt. Not to mention the fact that my kitties and dog start snoozing so sweetly as the daylight dims a bit and the thunder and rain rolls in so soothingly. It is the most calming feeling!
I was happy though to have been able to sneak in a bit of time at this Lake with Britt before the rain came. To be honest, my outfit today reminds me a bit of something you’d find in District 12 from The Hunger Games. Whether or not that’s a good or bad thing is yet to be determined, but I think I’m feeling it. I’ve been wanting for so long to wear these new-to-me poetic licence heels with their sweet velvet ribbons but they proved rather difficult to coordinate! Also making an appearance is this equally difficult to match vintage tapestry purse but some how, I threw on this dress this morning and it all just felt right. At last! I love discovering pieces in my wardrobe that can be a “chameleon” and let me bring out some of my favorite accessories.
